EEM Wizard:

I wanted to confirm the following:

If I create a baseline model with Custom Lyr-by-Lyr construction, I cannot create an EEM with less insulation than the baseline? The detail wizard only gives me the option of additional Insulation.

Thanks.

You will have to use the whole building measure option.

I can't recall what SV-A reports for self-sized air flows - the
"single" space air flow or the multiplied space air flow. In other
words does DOE2 self size the zone air flow based on a single space?

Chris,

I believe the zone-level air flows reported in the SV-A are for a single zone. The end of
each line shows the ZONE MULT that gives the zone multiplier that is used by DOE-2 in
calculating the total air flow rate that needs to be supplied by the central fans. I'm
not sure, but I don't think the coincidence, i.e., diversity, of these zone air flows are
considered when they are added up.
