I created a model with the ASHRAE Climate Zone set to ASHRAE 169-2006-4B and I want to change it to ASHRAE 169-2006-4A. How do I go about doing this?

I assume you are using Openstudio SketchUp plugin. In that case you can run the Space Type and Construction Wizard by selecting from the upper menu: Extensions >> OpenStudio User Scripts >> On Demand Template Generator >> Space Type and Construction Wizard. Be aware that the wizard will inject space types, schedules and construction sets to be use later with the model (it will populate you library). So the wizard will populate the OpenStudio resources which can be viewed in the OpenStudio Inspector window. If you already assigned spaces with the wizard resulted set you will need to assign the new sets to each space. It will be easier to do that in Openstudio application rather then doing that in SketchUP. You might also want to use measures like that one to set the space types etc.
