@newhouse87

There will be a plate heat exchanger inside the outdoor unit, but that is between the refrigerant gas and the water. You could have another PHE indoors between the primary water and the secondary water.

If the problem has not reappeared by the time you go to bed, then it may not be a BUH problem. I'm afraid my eyesight is not good enough to see what is happening from here.

@newhouse87

Please post all information, since it would appear the BUH's were not the cause.

Given that Daikin are an international company, I think the LCD display isn't using British nomenclature.

I think the 3-way valve reference to SHC is "Space Heating & Cooling".
Ie it's sending the flow to the UFH or Radiators, rather than the Domestic Hot Water route.

I'm not the best person to answer that @newhouse87

I'm not a heat pump specialist.
I work with embedded controllers, sensors, feedback systems and the suchlike.

My understanding of heat pump cycling has come from analysing data retrieved from substation transformers.
So I've understood the need to to reduce on/off cycling, but not from the usual viewpoint!

@newhouse87

There is nothing shown on the displays supplied that would appear to be using lots of power. What was the power consumption at the time and how is it being measured?
