Hi I have a problem, Openstudio doesn't calculate Design load with sizing factor when I only use a thermostat for cooling. In my country we never use heating systems, so I don´t need to calculate the design load for heating. Thank you

See if this post helps. It describes how to use ThermostatSetpointDualSetpoint when you want a cooling only system.

What I did understand is that I have to put a heating schedule and it has to be with a lower temperature than my cooling schedule. So if I put a temperature of 12°C for the heating schedule there will be no mistake?

Yes, in addition to being lower than your cooling schedule, you may want it lower than any temperatures the building will see, so it doesn't show up as hours heating setpoint not met.
