Add furnace draft fan energy use

We should add furnace draft fan electricity (boiler draft fans are already implemented).

Note that this requires some work to get end use energy correctly disaggregated. As is, furnace aux electricity and crankcase heater electricity are lumped together by DOE-2.

I would propose moving crankcase heating from the cooling end use to the HVAC Fan/Pump category so that we don't have to disaggregate. Boiler aux would also have to be moved since it is currently put in Heating (E).

Wait on this since there might be some ramifications with changing annual or hourly end use categories.

Note: Both DOE2 and E+ put boiler draft fan energy into "Heating (E)", but "HVAC Fan/Pump?" would probably be better. This should be consistent with furnace draft fan energy if we implement this ticket.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
