Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] How to schedule IdealLoadsAirSystem?

Since there's no on/off schedule in the ZoneHVAC:IdealLoadsAirSystem component, you'll have to work
with the thermostat schedule. Use a dual setpoint and set the cooling setpoint way up at night and the heating
setpoint way down.

Im trying to find the total energy required for cooling of a office building from May to September.

To do this I have used IdealLoadsAirSystem, but this system works 24 hours a day. However, since my building is used as an office, I only want it to work from 8am to 5pm.

Any idea how to achieve this? I haven't specified any detailed HVAC components, just a simple ideal load one.
