Is Ideal Air load , IDEAL for Finding New wall construction impact on the building Or Open studio is more suitable for that?

Using ideal air load vs Using Open studio HVAC; which is more reliable for studying energy impact… !

I mean I personally feel like that’s tentative on the use case, if you are studying the impact in general of a new wall assembly explicitly; and not explicitly for a particular building. I’d say ideal air loads.

If this is a study for a specific building; and what impact the new assy would have on the building: I’d model the system the building has.

That’s just my unsolicited 2 cents


That’s Great. Thanks a Ton, sir. I will stick to Ideal air load then, for this purpose. Its a lifesaver cmnt.
