I am not aware of any combined furnace-A/C combos. The Penguin is available in a heat pump configuration. I have one and do not recommend it due to the low heat output and high noise.
I agree it is noisy, but I don't understand the low heat output comment. Last week we stayed in Northern Kentucky. It snowed and was right at 32* all night. My heat pump kept the thermostat setting at 69*. The furnace never kicked on. Maybe that is too cool for you, but 69* with an electric blanket is perfect for us.
I'd recommend the Penguin.
