Request - process HVAC variables

Postby crollinjones » Fri Aug 11, 2017 3:11 pm

Our local code requires that we report the TEDI metric - Thermal Energy Demand Intensity. This is calculated by reporting the sum of heating energy of all HVAC components in a model. It would be great if the IES API could include this ability.

Thank you!

Hi Christopher,

Is that something you could approach currently through use of the set of Vista output variables available to you or by applying subMeters in your model?

Phil,
Yes, I am currently doing this task using Vista reports but it does take some time. Automating with Python would be a welcome addition.
