No Roof Conduction Load

Hello all:

For some reason on the peak load components output eQuest reads that none of the load contribution is from roof conduction. It is unconditioned space but I should still be getting a significant load coming from the roof. I didn't set it to adiabatic and the insulation in the attic is only R19. Has anyone experienced this before?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Your peak load components should be coming into the ceiling of the
conditioned room below the plenum. You can check this by changing the
roof insulation and seeing what happens to the ceiling load component.
