Heating and Cooling Setpoint temperatures

Postby stelios_m » Sat Jun 02, 2018 3:11 pm


I am trying to calculate heating and cooling degree hours for my case study.

As i am trying to simulate and study differences in operative temperature by using different control options, i realize that the results i get are depends in heating and cooling setpoint temperatures that i set in enviromental control.

I set 21-degree for heating setpoint and 26-deggree for cooling setpoint. In case i increase or decrease the setpoint temperatures, the operative temperature of the room fluctuates accordingly.

Do you have any idea what is the right way to take my results?
