Balance checks

From the balance checks file I've got that:

Materialwise enthalpy balance = Ein Eout = 2.224 (W)

It isn't good enough, is it?

What could be the meaning of such a difference?

What value is acceptable?

Re: Balance checks
How big are Ein and Eout? If it is in the range 1000-10000, the error 2/1000-10000 is more than negligible and you can consider your solution as converged (with respect to the enthalpy balance of course).
