Zone HVAC Design Objects
- Set design specifications of outdoor air
- Set zone, system and plant sizing parameters
Zone HVAC Controls and Thermostats
- Set zone thermostats
Zone HVAC Forced Air Units
- Zone HVAC components here should directly correct to zones and cannot connect
to Zone HVAC Air Loop Terminal Units.
Zone HVAC Radiative/Convective Units
- Components here do not use normal zone thermostats but use their own schedule
to set zone setpoints
Zone HVAC Air Loop Terminal Units
- Components here are just used to distribute air flow to zones and can be used
together with other coils.
