How best to model and heat/cool a 2-floor space?
What is the best way to model the heating & cooling loads of a 2-floor space with a mezzanine? I have an “A-frame” 1.5 story with a 2-story cathedral ceiling over the living area and a smaller second floor area open to the floor below.
Is the best approach to consider it one, two story space, or two separate spaces when modeling the thermal loads and when designing the supply and return ducting for a forced air system?
