timmmay: Some heat pumps run a cooling cycle followed by a heating cycle, so dehumidifying doesn't change the room temperature too much.
Niel:Handle9: Also FYI Niel reverse cycle refers to the reverse cycle of refrigerant - i.e. The forward cycle of refrigerant is in cooling, the reverse cycle is heating. There is a reversing valve in the refrigerant circuit which provides this functionality.
"Reverse cycles" plural as in all the cycles. Unless you have an old system, an aircon can be set to heating only, cooling only, dehumidify, or automatically reversing cycles between heating and cooling as needed. The issue is that after cooling there is condensation on the element so when it reverse to heating you get a faint metallic smell.
Wade: We've got a heat pump and an hrv system and I have to say as a combo these two units work in very well together and keep the whole house at a very even temperature

Is that a true heat recovery ventillation system or an HRV brand system, two different things?
