DD wizard HVAC system type issues

Equest Users,

Has anyone encountered the following problem?

DD wizard incorrectly assigns the return path to "DUCTED" for "PACKAGED DX
PARALLEL FAN-POWERED VAV W/ ELEC REHEAT".

We discovered this problem after only changing "RETURN AIR PATH" from
default "DUCTED" to "PLENUM" and then reviewing the SS-J report to find the
SQFT/Ton is 2x what it should be (968 ducted vs. 526 plenum).

Please let me know your feedback ASAP.

Best, Jesse

Hi Jesse:
?
That is why, after?I have created most of my building architecture, I go to the Detailed Edit mode (saving a copy still in the DD Wizard mode) and make changes from there.
?
Sometimes, we do not know why the Wizard does what it does? Remember that Wizards are magicians, not engineers..
