Doesn't it also depend on if it's been optimised for air conditioning to

the winter in climates such as the UK?
Consider also it appears from many of the examples I've seen honesty
doesn't seem to be part of USA advertising.
Is that necessary? If it's reversible, isn't it just that? Obviously it will be less efficient when it's pushing heat through a larger gradient (which will happen in heating mode), but that can't be helped.
Don't they have a government body to check they're honest?
And it ain't just the USA - almost everything you buy with a rating is a lie. Cameras with less megapixels than they say, batteries with less capacity than they say, etc. Every time I buy something like that, I test it thoroughly, then get a partial refund :-)

60Hz vs 50Hz?
For several manufacturers they all come off the the same production
line, using the same refrigerant, most now use a multiphase inverter
The result is there is essentially bugger all difference in thermal
performance and certainly none related to the mains input voltage and
