Energos Btu to kWh

Recommended Posts

I watched a webinar a few weeks ago on energy modeling.  The presenter's Energos project settings dialog box displayed the energy units in kWh, but mine is in Btu.  How do I change this to kWh?

Hello @Jessica Maw,

 

You have to change your Energos document units from File->Document Settings->Units... to Metric, as shown in the image below.

Talking about shown units, is it possible to tweak metric units (set in units)?

Result in energos label (for area) is in format sq m, cu m  instead of my preferred way m², m³ ... etc. My dimension units in document are set that way...

I know it is very subtle change but I prefer to be consistent throughout project document.

 

Thanks.

Could you fill in an enhancement request about that? Thanks.

I thought switching to metric in the Energos tab would just change the energy units, but that then converts it from square feet to meters.  I'm guessing there's no way around this?  We're trying to compare the Energos modeling to a program we're paying money for, and this may be a deal breaker for us because we can't spend that much time converting square meters to square feet.

- When you switch the energos units you switch them for all data used in energos. The idea behind this is that when you work on a project usually you use the same units and not a mix of imperial and metric. So currently it is not possible to have such a mix.
