Strange Imbalance CHT

I have encountered an imbalance in the heat transfer rate (q in Watts) which I cannot explain.
Following Problem, I have a solid body with a heatsource with 66W into it. There are two other solid bodies in contact as well as a fluid domain (air).
I measured the imbalance in CFD-Post via an expression:
areaAve(Wall Heat Flux)@Interface1_Side1*area()@Interface1_Side1+areaAve(Wall Heat Flux)@Interface2_Side1.....
Is it possible that CFX defines some faces as negative? Since the part of the solid in contact with the fluid has a positive value for q. When I substract that one face I get a result of about 1W, which can be a round off error. Strangely, also the heatsource defined as 66W is only about 64.8W in CFD Post.
