Understanding BEopt DView outputs
OK, so for some of you this is going to seem like a “duh” question. I’m using BEopt to model the energy use of our new home and I’m more than a little confused as to which toggles I should be using in the DView output.
For example, if I want to see the BTU output of my heating equipment, in this case a GSHP, what toggle do I use to show the actual BTU output over time? This is imortant for equipment sizing, but there are SO many options:
-Total (*) (Btu)
-Total (E) (Btu)
-Heating (E) (Btu)
-Total (E) (kWh)
-Heating (E) (kWh)
-Heating Delivered (main) Btu)
Is there a page or document I can be pointed to that gives a thorough description of what all of these different DView options actually mean? I’m trying to determine my peak heating (and cooling) loads for equipment sizing, but I get numbers all over the map depending which options I look at.
