What brand of heat pump do you have experience with and recommend for a combined kitchen / dining / secondary living area?
We need a replacement heat pump, our 11 year old Daikin is being a bit erratic and at that age isn't worth even having investigated. I like the Daikin much better than the loud 5 year old Fujitsu Nocria I have, it's quieter and just seems better.
The room to heat is a kitchen / dining / second living area and is 8 x 4 x 2.8m. It's fully insulated and double glazed but has quite a few windows, but in summer gets lots of sun and reaches 35 degrees easy. Calculators all say I need about 5kw - current unit is 7kw and is overkill.
What brands of heat pump are good can people personally recommend? Key requirements:
- Not too loud is good, but we don't have a TV in there so super quiet isn't critical.
- The room is quite wide, so the ability to throw air well to the left and right is important.
- It would be good if it had WiFi control with a 7 day timer, or be compatible with my cheap Broadlink remote timer thingy.
I'll have a firm recommend a heat pump, but I'd like the experience of people who've lived with them as well.
