As refering to my last question here, I am given the heating setpoint given is 65 F and cooling setpoint is 75 F. How do I set this numbers in thermal zone?

Also, I am given an info : 300 Btu/h F UA overall(includes infiltration, not glazing) . Where do I set this into openstudio ?

I have tried to look through the Openstudio user documentation but still having trouble understanding how to insert certain input. Please help!

Create one schedule with your cooling setpoint and another with your heating setpoint in the schedules tab...

Then under the 'My Model' tab on the right hand side of the thermal zone tab drag and drop the schedules you made into the 'Cooling Thermostat Schedule' and 'Heating Thermostat Schedule' regions next to each thermal zone you'd like to assign it to...

I'm not aware of a way to explicitly enter a UA.
