Room Templates are a powerful feature of the Drawing Tool that allows users to define default parameters for a room with a single input. By using Room Templates users can quickly and clearly define the use type of each room in a multi-zone building.

In Future, Room Templates control the following room parameters:

  • Lighting Load
  • Appliance Load
  • Occupancy
  • Outdoor Air per Person
  • Outdoor Air per Area

These values are translated to the project's Baseline Energy inputs using the area-weighted method.
