This horse has been beaten here before. I am sure a search would turn up the thread.
But to answer your question, NO.
You would need to check the instructions from the individual manufacturers. or use a rule of thumb.
I don't test A/C below 60 even though most can be safely operated a few degrees lower.
Heat pumps are designed to run at low temperatures, so no problem.
Heat pumps can be damaged from operating too long when it is hot, but momentary operation is OK in my experience.
