HOT2000 - model first floor garage?

Hi all, I am modelling a proposed new residence in HOT2000 to prove code compliance to our local jurisdiction. The building is three storeys with a slab-on-grade foundation, and the first storey is a garage. The living spaces are on the second and third floors. My question is, how should I model this in HOT2000? The garage is heated and the garage walls are insulated, and the floor between the first and second storeys (above the garage) is insulated, obviously. Does anyone know if I can model…See More

"I agree. 99% of the time additions are best suited for the prescriptive method. No modeling needed."

"No.  I think the person at NRCan didn't fully understand your situation.  One heating source means it's one house.  It's also important to distinguish between a duplex and a semi-detached.  Semi-detached houses…"

"Hi Dave, thank you for your reply! The purpose of the model is to show code compliance for the addition. I am doing it from plans, but I don't have plans for the entire house, or assemblies for the existing walls. I ended up speaking to someone…"

HOT2000 Modelling Addition

Hi all, I am a new energy modeler in Canada, and I am trying to figure out how to model an addition to an existing house. The addition will use the existing furnace. I was thinking I would only model the addition, but in the "Natural Air Infiltration" tab, I would enter in the volume for the entire house, and make sure that the output capacities for the existing HRV reflect the addition. Any thoughts? Has anyone modeled an addition in HOT2000 before? Thanks!See More

Hi Kyla,

Yes, Dave is right.. you need to model the whole house. Model the existing wall perimeters, up until where the hypothetical addition walls start, and then model those separately. You would ignore any old walls that would essentially become inside space after the addition is completed (except for any shared foundation walls). Note that depending on the size of the addition, the output capacity of the heating system might need to be increased so you don't get an error message.
