More warm weather  = less available cooling from outdoor air = less justification for spending money to install economizer controls.
p.s., You must provide minimum outdoor air for ventilation, but need not also cool with outdoor air

Is it just me, or is does it seem terrifically wasteful that a climate 1 building doesn't require an economiser? Or am I missing something?
