I have doubts about how you're doing this.  I used to model 
non-conditioned buildings in Asia by using the Residential (RESYS) 
system and setting the Heating and Cooling Setpoint temperatures way 
below or above the actual room temperature so that they never come on, 
e.g.,  Heating at 99 and Cooand , which has a different VENT-TEMP-SCHEDULE
