    Hello – my building uses air to water source heat pumps for hot water generation serving VAV hot water reheat coils. I noticed that regardless if I set the heat pump’s energy factor to 0.5 or 8.5, my PRF-01 reports a thermal efficiency of 0.98, as well as my site electrical usage remains unchanged. This naturally seems wrong to me – is there something I’m missing?

    The modeling tools will not allow for a heat pump to be used for hot water generation, only a gas or electric boiler.
