[Bldg-sim] Appendix G Baseline System for un-air conditioned zoo building

I am currently modeling a zoo building that is heated and ventilated 
only.  According to ASHRAE 90.1 Appendix G, I have to model both heating 
and air conditioning even if no air conditioning exists. For this size 
building I have to model a System 3 - rooftop air conditioner with gas 
heat for both the base building and the proposed building. Is there 
anything in Appendix G that would prevent me from setting  the cooling 
thermostat setpoint up to 90 degrees to prevent cooling energy from 
being included in the simulation as long as I use the same setting for 
both proposed and base models?
