I am modelling a residential building in a temperate climate using ideal air loads. I am getting spikes of cooling energy twice a day during winter when electrical equipment switches on even though the zone temps stay well below the cooling set point. Not much energy on each event but twice per day every day adds up. Why is this happening?

@Bill what simulation tool are you using? Please mention it in the title or body of your post, as well as add a tag for it so that others can provide better help.
