I'm doing some residential modeling for cold climates (Chicago) and was wondering if there are examples out there for cold climate heat pumps (mini-split or central) that I can use. I am aware of the NEEP Cold Climate Air Source Heat Pump list, but I'm looking for IDF models with the correct curves.

Hi Christian, I'm currently using Trane Trace 3D+ and they offer cold climate heat pumps as part of the VRF air-cooled outdoor unit options. They have 2 cold climate options, heat pump and heat recovery.

You might try contacting them through this link:

These are based on the Mitsubishi products.image description and image description
