Said there were units that went lower, just are expensive.
"Tests have shown a coefficient of performance of 2.7 at 17°F and a
coefficient of performance of 2.0 at 0°F while maintaining high BTU outputs, "
EER = CoP /.292 so a CoP of 2.0 is about an EER of 6.8. 2.7 is about 9.0.
Resistance heating has an EER of about 3.4. Pretty good.
