Hello, I’m trying to enter custom set point schedules so that my building is only conditioned during occupied hours. After combing through these forums I tried multiple methods, but I’m still getting results that show heating loads when the building is unoccupied.
I only want to condition the building from 8 am to 8 pm Monday-Friday. I’ve been focusing on the heating set points to troubleshoot my issue.
The main two methods I have tried:
As a final option, under method #1 I created a heating set point schedule with all hours at 0 to see if I could at least get the heating turned off all the time, but nope! I still got some hours with heating, although the zone temperature was always well above 0.
I feel like I’m missing something very basic here! Is there another method to set an HVAC on/off schedule? I’m not getting any errors, so it’s hard for me to know where exactly I’m making a mistake. I’ve attached my GH file with some notes.
