Simscape  Ventilated air gap betwwen two walls

Hi.
I´m modeling a air gap between to walls in SIMSCAPE. I have a thermal mass of the air gap at center, a convective heat transfer at left and one at right. this is my air gap. It works fine when is not ventilated.
When is ventilated, I connected a formula (made with simscape bloks): mCp(Delta T) with an ideal heat flow source to the thermal mass. m is the airflow Cp is the specific heat of air Delta T is the temperature of the room minus the temperature of the thermal mass
Is this ok??
When I connect the flow with an ideal heat flow source I'm making an addition or a multiplication??
