I have a room completely joined and surrounded by other rooms. I have set the temperature of all these rooms to be the same. Yet the central room has a temperature differences across its partition's to the other rooms.
How is this possible?
The rooms will have heat flow as they have different occupancies / gains defined, according to their characteristics such as area and room type.
Are you referring to the Design Temperatures in the room data? If so these are used thereafter to compute the required air flow in the calcs (eg at end of CIBSE Gain calc).

Hi, thanks for your reply.
It is true they will have different heat gains etc. However if the temperatures are the same then there should be no temperature differences between the rooms, hence partitions which are between adjoining rooms.
So do you know why there could be a temperature difference between the rooms even though the temperatures are set to be identical in these rooms?
