[Equest-users] should i simulate the heating system when no heating system in proposed building

My interpretation of this is:
If you model a building with electric baseboard heating in a climate that
has no real heating load, and you use a baseline and model with baseboard
heating that your thermostat should not turn the heating on so long as your
building is thermally well designed- so the simplest route would be to use
the system specified for compliance in your model as a method to show
heating is not needed. You could set your setpoint to the minimum for
thermal comfort for your region. Then document why you did not use heating
in the actual building possibly might use the tool called 'climate
consultant' to show how your climate supports this design for

Others on this list may have know more, but I figure I would share-- best
of luck
