Is this a bad installation and is there something wrong with my Samsung heat pump?

Do you have a section on here for balancing the system and does that book you recommend provide that.

I have an idea from toodles but how about the following.

room stat set so never turns off, cycles ?

pump speed, two of them ?

what is the lowest flow and return temps thats safe for the system?

If lock shields turned too far will the system start to dump water?

we have had the room stat set at 19c but I am hoping to move away from the dusty log burner so perhaps 21c more sensible with bedrooms set to 19c.  If you know of a book out there or a video let me know please.

@transparent insulation not through wall.

secured the boiler as best as they could and it’s crap. 

all the insulation is crap to be honest.

 

yup ordered that book on line, not sure if it covers balancing the system though.

@david999 thanks for buying the book. It doesn't cover how to balance rads, but that is something that should be done as part of the installation. I really find it beyond disappointing how terrible the installation and commissioning of systems is. I think I need to escalate my fight to the associations because MCS and the consumer codes are not doing anything to improve matters.

@editor I’m expecting the book any minute, if you become famous in your campaign then I’m sending my book for you to autograph. 

Sadly it’s replicating what we saw years ago with the government initiatives and the governing bodies toothless.  The insurance ombudsman was worthless as well when my insurance company fell on its backside and couldn’t do its job.  I would have got more satisfaction talking to one of my dogs.
