Environmental Conditions — Fixed combined coefficient bug
Tuesday, September 5, 2017
In the Environmental Conditions Library Convection section, if the Model is set to "Fixed combined coefficient", the fields Effective Sky Temperature (for U-factor Outside) and Effective Room Temperature (for U-factor Inside), both of which are hidden for this model, may be set incorrectly. The work around is to temporarily set the Model to "Fixed convection coefficient" so that the fields are visible, set them to the "Inside Air Temperature" value for the U-factor Inside tab and to the "Outside Air Temperature" value for the U-factor Outside tab, then set the Model back to "Fixed combined coefficient".
The example below is for the U-factor Outside tab — repeat the steps for U-factor Inside tab also.
