Once Zones are drawn, the drawing space enables Zone-specific Profiles to be set. Profiles for building class and usage for the entire building are also set within the Simulation area.
Profiles are typically set in the Simulation area for the entire model. But for those looking for more control at the Zone level, we can determine Profiles locally too. It's important to note that HVAC and Occupancy settings at a Zone level will impact reference building envelope assumptions and thermal comfort assessments, where applicable.
Add or amend a Profile by selecting the Zone and navigating to the 'Zone Profile' button. Here you can select an alternative Profile that needs to be created before selection is available. Here you can control HVAC, Equipment, Lighting and Occupancy.
