Temperature distribution on a residential building

Hi everyone. 
I'm trying to do a simulation of a residential building and I need to know the distribution of the temperature in whole my building. At the moment, I did in design modeler a volume substraction between the enclosure geometry and my model geometry to get the air domain so in fluent setup I've got in 'cell zone conditions' only air domain. After the simulation I've got only the air temperature of my building but I need to know also the distribution of the temperature inside the wall and the windows. Should I have to import different part of geometry for each domain? (For example: concrete, glass, air, ground etc.).

The following example will give you overview of a heat transfer over a chips in a electronic component. The modelling wise there won't be much change except the dimensions and boundary conditions. I hope this will help. 

If you would like to know the temperature transfer b/n walls, you need two options. One is shell conduction and second one is modeling the solid wall (CHT).

Here are the example videos.

Ok, thank you.
