With more and more members joining the forums, I tend to lose track and forget users’ ASHP brands and sizes. This post is intended to act as a quick reference and to engage with other users that have similar units. It’ll have forums members username, ASHP model and size, and we will structure it by brand. Please post your details as a reply. I’ll copy the details into the post and delete the reply.

@prjohn

Wouldn’t you also need the heat loss estimate for the house, or the W/m2, to take into account the construction/insulation?

If Homeowners are prepared to provide the information, then maybe a spreadsheet containing the following information would be of most use from the comparison, and highlighting of possible problems, point of view.

Forum Handle:

Manufacturer:

Model:

Type: ASHP, GSHP, Other

Arrangement: Mono, Split, High Temp, Bivalent etc.

Area of Country: General Location

Home Type: House, Bungalow, Cottage etc.

Size: Square Metres:

Insulation Level: Scale of 1 to 10 possibly?

Heat Loss Calculation: kW @ Amb. Temp, of: ?C

Type of Controller: Modulating, Thermostats, TRV's etc.

Type of Control: Adaptive, Weather Compensation, Flow Temperature, Room Temperature etc.

System Type: UFH, Radiators etc.

Total Output of Heat Emitters: kW

Buffer Tank or Low Loss Header: BT, LLH or No

Secondary Pumps: Number or No

Solar PV System: Size or No

Power Diverter: Yes or No

Battery System: Size or No

Anything else that anyone can think may be useful. Please feel free to rearrange the order.

I think you might be.  How much energy do you use when it's cold, i.e. as in mid-December? Have you got near your 16.5kW design power?

@kev-m Hi Kev.  Not sure how to calculate that.  In the cold week at the start of December (0 to -8 C all week) the HP system drew an average of 70 KWh per day peaking at 105 KWh.  The house was reasonably warm all that time and I did not have the sense that the ASHP were near their limit to supply energy (though some rads should probably be upgraded) One of the issues I have is that there does not seem to be a measure of output energy in this system.  The standard Ecodan system does show output but apparently the cascade does not!

@tommcl 

I didn't know the cascade system didn't give you the numbers.  105kWh at a COP of 2.5 (what I got in the cold snap) is a constant 11kW (105*2.5/24) over 24 hours. 

What flow temp are you using?

Ok So here is where I need a better manual.  The Summary Settings screen says 45C.  Melcloud says the flow temperature is 50C when the room thermo is calling for 20C (actual 18.5), but then drops to 42 When thermo at 18C (actual 18) and 25 when the thermo at 16 (actual dropping towards 17).

If I try to get to the point to set the flow temperature by working my way through the screens on the controller I get to a point when the controller asks if I want to shut the system down.     Should I say yes at this point?
