I am trying to analyze the use of a heat pump system in a cooling only scenario using energy plus. However, the interior temperatures are always greater than the outdoor temperatures. I tried running another simulation but using an ideal load system. I still get the same type of results. In urgent need of help. Thanks a lot.

Here is the link to the idf files.

This problem occurred because you're not attaching your HVACTemplate:Thermostat to HVACTemplate:Zone:IdealLoadsAirSystem by its input: Template Thermostat Name. I reran your ideal load system with this fixed, it started conditioning your zones in hot hours.
