Trace 700 Notes

Topic: Notes for using Trace 700 in the ELCCA analysis

  • Domestic hot water: Trace applies an occupancy schedule to and calculates a number for domestic hot water usage, but please note the following
    • Inputs parameters for domestic hot water consumption are in the Base Utility/Miscellaneous Accessory tab of the 'Create Plants' module.
    • Calculated domestic hot water consumption is shown as a line item on the Equipment Energy Consumption report.
    • But domestic hot water totals are not included in the Energy Cost Budget, Energy Consumption Summary, Monthly Energy Consumption, or Monthly Utility Cost reports.
    • Therefore it is necessary to add the domestic hot water consumption numbers to the HVAC totals in the ELCCA report spreadsheet.
