Which modeling tool are you using? Please tag it in your question.

If you're using EnergyPlus or OpenStudio, I'm guessing that you still have Ideal Air Loads turned on. This acts like a black box attached to the zone that provides heating and cooling at perfect efficiency. Any heating or cooling required is categorized as district heating and district cooling, respectively.

To check in OpenStudio, look at the Thermal Zones tab to make sure the boxes under Turn On Ideal Air Loads is not checked (see below).
