I’ve got an issue with the CF1R-PRF-01 not outputting the expected number of dwelling units and I’m wondering if I’m modeling something incorrectly.I’m modeling a 3 story mixed-use/multi-family building with a total of 6 dwelling units. The first floor has 2 dwelling units, and two retail spaces (not included in the model, modeled separately as nonresidential). Above the first floor are 4 two-story dwelling units that make up the second and third floor. This makes for a total of 6 dwelling units, 2 on the first floor and 4 on the upper floors.The issue I’m running into is with the upper floor two-story units. The mechanical design of these units is such that the lower floor is served by 1 system / 1 zone, and the upper floor is served by a separate system / zone. When I model 1 system for the lower floor and another for the upper floor, it counts this as 2 dwelling units, even though it should be 1. So on the final report instead of ending up with 6 dwelling units (2 + 4), it is double counting the upper floor units so I’m ending up with 10 dwelling units (2 + (4 x 2)).How can I model these upper floor units with separate zones, without it double counting the dwelling units?
