Hey all,

Still trying to work through the errors of my model. Now I am getting warning errors that can be seen below.

* Warning * Calculated design heating load for zone=1E is zero. * ~~~ * Check Sizing:Zone and ZoneControl:Thermostat inputs.

Happens for all zones.

This is probably a simple fix but it is worrying for when I actually get the simulation working. I have all the autosize options on and have loads in the zones. Don't understand what the cause of this error is.

Thanks again anyone for the help. This community has been great and is helping me become much more familiar with OpenStudio.

Edit: So this might help someone trying to determine the problem. The 2 zones that don't have thermostats don't have that warning. But all the other zones that have thermostats associated with them have the warning.

Have you added thermostat schedules on each thermal zone?

Yes I have themostat schedules on every thermal zone.

@Dustin, once you confirm it works, post that as an answer please.

Would that require reopening the question?

Think I determined the issue. I didn't have the winter and summer design day schedules in. I had a schedule that I made for the building but not having the winter and summer design days set were causing those errors.
