[EnergyPlus_Support] dualsetpoint deadband

Sorry All,
Disregard my previous message, when i exported the geometry from design builder it assigned a schedule to the reporting of the mean air temperature which shifted the curve when i was viewing it in the Result Viewer.
I had another question though. When using the dualsetpoint thermostat is there a way to enter a deadband on the heating and on the cooling setpoints? As deadband I mean for example if the heating setpoint is 20C, i would like to allow a +/- 1 degree around it so that the fans don't run constantly but intermittently rather.

The problem is that at night the parallel fan runs all the time. When I set up a schedule with the fans off at night there is a short swing in temperature in the evening below the setpoint (17 deg C). Then the temperature goes back to normal.
