unconditioned spaces

hi
can anyone tell me how to find the monthly indoor temperature of an
unconditioned space in equest?
I am finding out the difference in thermal comfort with respect to
temperature by changing the glazing specifications.
is there any control which can be activated.
Right now I dont have any HVAC for heating and cooling.
Thanks
Regards

You can get the monthly temperature by first outputting the hourly
temperature and using excel to do the averages.
What controls are you thinking of? You could do daylight control based on
illuminance and solar control based on glare.

How do you get hourly temperatures inside the room?
If I run simulation, I can get results for hourly and monthly radiation, but
there is no output showing the temperature inside due to all glass sunroom.
Regarding controls, I want to use incident radiation and temperature as the
control.
I am modelling switchable glazing, so want to analyse the energy savings by
using switchable glazing in an unconditioned room.
