Hi Everyone,

This questions is about unmet heating hours in a model. I've scoured the bldg-sim list but I haven't come across anything like the problem I'm having. I'm modeling a high school in New England. The unmet heating hours are 99.99%. I've checked the heating and cooling schedules, fan schedules, etc., adjusted the throttling range, and so on. The SS-O reports show that the majority of space temperatures are below 60F. The building is in New England, but I find it unlikely that during the majority of the summer the temperature will be below 60F in the building.  It's not really a sizing issue either as changing equipment sizes does not do anything and the loads (for the most part) do not exceed the equipment capacity. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
