There is an error in August when I simulate for both Roberval and Quebec city. There is a significant heating demand in August however the environmental data shows temperature well above the thermostat set point.
Here are the temperature data of Quebec and the energy simulation results.
The reason that it still needs heating in August is because for a long time of the day the temperature is well below 20 C (the heating setpoint). As we don’t account for thermal mass, the energy stored during the day has no effect on the temperature in the house at night. I agree that this is a bug.
In my simulation the heating setpoint is 5 C, So even without considering thermal mass, heating should not kick in? May be it is due to the fact that the simulation is trying to maintain a constant temperature as per setpoint schedule.
Is it possible to turn off cooling (air conditioning) in the simulation?
