Could you please explain how to model an air-source heat pump for high-rise residential units? In the library window, under the Heating tab, what should I select as System Type? The Heating Type would be Heat Pump. I've tried several options and there is always some kind of error when running the simulation. I had most success with choosing Room AC/HP as the system type, but in that case I get the following error:

Error:  Heat pump coil 'CU-RES-1_WB_L1_UNIT_109-1-Heat' must be specified with AHRI rated HSPF. evaluating run u rule: Set CHECKCODE CoilHtg:HtPumpHSPF  (86:'HVACSecondary-CoilHeating-HeatPump.rule' line 289)

I believe I've entered all the AHRI information, but it still didn't work. With this system type selection, the HSPF field changes to COP, and I've entered the corresponding conversion, but to no success.

This is for 2019 Title-24 compliance using EnergyPro 8.
