POA = price on application. Some manufacturers don't supply RRPs for their heat pumps, citing the wide variation in installation costs depending on location of indoor and outdoor units. For these brands, prices (unit+installation) are only available from brand-accredited installers, who will usually provide a free, no-obligation quote.
Before using our database to choose the right model for your home, it’s essential to work out the required heating capacity (kW) for your home. The best way to do this is to use our calculator or enlist the services of an experienced heat pump installer. A top-scoring model won’t be able to keep your home at a healthy temperature if it’s too small for the job.
Smaller heat pumps are more efficient than bigger ones. Our scores take this into account, so a model that scores highly for heating efficiency will have a COP that’s higher than average for a model of its size. A score of 7.0 indicates the average result for a model of that heating capacity (kW). The same applies for noise scores, so a large model scoring 7.0 for indoor noise will be louder than a small model which also scored 7.0 – use the dBA figures if you want to know how models of different sizes compare.
Our low-temperature performance score is based on the difference between the standard kW heating capacity (measured at 7°C) and output at 2°C (the H2 rating), the prime temperature for frost formation. It also considers whether the model’s earned the Energy Star mark, which requires heat pumps to demonstrate efficient low-temperature performance.

0.5 degree resolution is good. Remote has backlight, useful in bedroom. Heating mode down to 10 degree thermostat setting sounds funny but could be useful. Heats my small double bedroom very quickly. When the hammering noise isn't present (explained below) the pump is very quiet. The main reason i went for this product is the price difference compared to mitsubishi GL25 which isn't reviewed here (consumer please review this, possibly a good model). Daikin has a top name in canstar blue nz and hence went with this brand over panasonic etc.
early coments with 2 nights use, makes a hammering/knocking/something rubbing inside noise even in quiet mode at 26 deg heating setting. If I turn off the pump and turn it back on it disappears, installer tells me give it a week to settle, which I am doing. the issue is intermittent, as it is in my bedroom, these noises become critical. Time will tell, I hope the intermittent noises disappear.
Yes, I recommend this product.
