Hi, you need to set these input in HVAC classes. I believe there are many ways to do it depending on HVAC system type, but the most simple I know is: a) Create an object in HVACTemplate:Thermostat class, then set heating and cooling setpoints; b) Create an object in HVACTemplate:Zone:PTHP class, adding input settings for your HVAC, and select the created thermostat in line 2 (Template Thermostat Name).
