Consider local climate when selecting a heat pump equipment manufacturer

When selecting a manufacturer of heat pump equipment, one of the things to consider is the dominate climate for that area.

In northern areas the dominate climate is cold, requiring more days of heating. In the southern areas the dominate climate is hot, requiring more days of cooling.

Some manufactures of heat pump equipment design the outdoor unit with a reversing valve that is normally in the heat mode. This is good for the northern areas in that if the reversing valve fails it would more than likely be in the heating mode, and would be able to provide heat from the heat pump unit.

Some manufactures of heat pump equipment design the outdoor unit with a reversing valve that is normally in the cooling mode. This is good for the southern areas in that if the reversing valve fails it would more than likely be in the cooling mode and would be able to provide cooling.

With either type of equipment there is normally a back up source of heat in the event of a problem with the outdoor heat pump unit.

Rheem, Ruud, and Bard are the manufactures I know of who manufacture the outdoor unit with the reversing valve normally in the cooling mode.
