I am working in a LEED project of a 12-story (2 are below ground car parks) City Hotel project with approx. 12000 sqft per floor.
I have selected Baseline HVAC system as System 2 as per ASHRAE 90.1, Table G3.1.1A, selecting the hotel as a residential building. But energy savings cannot be achieved even-though the design case has High efficient chiller system. I have checked the baseline several times to find an error but couldn't. All I want to know is that whether I have chosen the correct system type (system 2 ) or I have to change it to Non residential type.
Thanks in advance.
