Posted on May 5th, 2010. Last updated on September 20th, 2018.

If you have an unheated space above or below a floor, such as a parking garage or basement, you can define your floor or specific rooms to have a Floor / Ceiling Partition in the Floor Information and Room List dialog boxes. However, Design Master HVAC limits you to only one or the other.

To model a space with both a floor and a ceiling partition, enable the Floor / Ceiling Partition and enter the sum of the two u-values.
