    Bad three way valve I just turned it off and quoted them a replacement unit. Come to find out when the property owners put these in they bought extras. So they just had us install the new one.

    No its stranger then that. They did not buy extra valves they bought an extra Heat pump. I would not change the valve on a unit of that age any way

    Not that uncommon for larger owners. It often done as a budget CYA. I you have Cap Ex money to then you buy extra. The use it or loose it budget method. Your screwed if you go over and screwed if you go under.
    If you help others then you are a Success

    Heat pumps that far north? I'm in Montreal and we use them all the time. Although it can go as low as -30, we get a lot of days where it is warm enough for a heat pump to work fine. (A heat pump is good until about -12 or 14... then you switch to electric)
