@julianc

Yes that would be great, your system looks good so anyway I can learn more would be good. Essentially like you my wife would be most unhappy at many radiators being changed. I would love to do messages somehow first until after my first quote which is on the 18th then maybe a video call. I feel the high temperature versions will be even more lesser known and Ecobubl do not cover south Lincolnshire. Anyway sorry to spam this chat.

Getting a COP of 4.37 currently. As it’s nice weather 😊

Update: so my ASHP is effectively off through the summer. H/w is via solar PV and Solic 200 diverter mentioned elsewhere. 
But the Daikin in standby mode uses 1.5-2kWh of energy per day. To keep everything in shape I guess?  This should be supplied by my solar PV. And matches what Daikin support said. 
Has anyone found anything similar?

@julianc good to know.

Does anyone turn their ashp off in the summer or if they are away from home for several weeks?

We turned our heat pump off a few weeks ago. Our hot water is heated using our iBoost (connected to our solar PV array) and I'm hoping that it will remain turned off well into August/September.

This seems like a variation on the Four Yorkshiremen sketch.

I'm completely out of the running - but I guess the winner will be whoever puts the most back into the grid.

@mike-patrick “we were so poor…” 😂

For me, it is always trying to use as much of the electric I’ve generated via PV as possible. So reducing draw from the grid and keeping costs down. Very Yorkshire 👍

Solar PV and diverter (Solic) continue to heat hot water in Mixergy tank. Daikin ASHP using about 1.5kWh per day in standby. I need to contact Daikin to ask if this can be scheduled at night when my octopus energy tariff is cheap.

Julian,

Why would you want your ASHP scheduled at night if you have free solar during the day?

Hmmm. Bloody good point @derek-m. I obviously didn’t have my thinking head on 😊
