Heating Schedules


So I am trying to create a heating schedule for a school building and my heating schedules are fraction based thats why its not being read. I would like to know how can i create heating schedules temperature based. Also when i dont want heating set point not to overide my schedules.


@sakshay ,

Sorry for a late response here. Heating and Cooling setpoint schedules are a bit different than the other schedules used in E+ in that they are NOT fractional. Rather, E+ expects you to plug in the actual temperature values in degrees C into the schedule values (like 24, 24, 24, 26, 26, 26, 24). Also, you need to plug in the word “temperature” to the schedTypeLimits input in order to make sure that E+ understands these values as temperatures and not fractional values.

After setting up the schedule this way, you should be able to assign the schedule as a heating or cooling schedule without issues.

If you assign a heating or cooling setpoint on the “Set Zone Thresholds” component, it might override this schedule so I would recommend not using this component or not setting any setpoints on it if you create your own custom schedule like this.


Thank You Chris, it works now :slight_smile:
