Hi,

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.

Thanks

Christian

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: https://tranecds.custhelp.com/app/hom...

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