    Hi guys, my wife and I are doing a self build. I'm a GSR plumber. There's no gas in the village, we were toying with the idea of going down the pellet burner root. But are now swaying towards an air source heat pump, with solar geothermal and a log burner in the lounge.

    I've never installed a heat pump, and not sure which one to consider/avoid.

    Any views on this people?

    Google Earth save products, give them a ring or email, very friendly and helpful people. Ask about the Ecocent hot water cylinder, and their knowledge of heat pumps is second to none

    Thanks for that, I'll check them out. Just having a look at the new Samsung EHS mono.

    Mitsubishi! cheap, chearfull and easy to install.
    Can use it to feed your heating (underfloor or rads) directly or sent it to a buffer.
    Pellet burners/ wood burner etc - to much hassle, cleaning out etc every so often depending how often u use it.

    My choice would be Nibe all the way. Not cheap but when installed and set up correct they are te best. Back up and customer service very good to. Mitsubishi have zero help in technical and service and there product is not a patch on there's.

    Bit of an update. Went to Earth Save Products and had a good chat with the guys there. Very impressed with the Ecocent Cylinder. So looks like I'm swaying towards one of their ASHP for underfloor heating downstairs and some of their low temp rads for upstairs. The ASHP doesn't have to do the DHW as the Ecocent cylinder takes care of that.

    Edited to add, I'll be fitting a buffer tank too.

    If you're fitting an ecocent you'd best buy a nice warm coat as well cause it'll suck the warm air out of you're house and dump it outside

    Markfxy, the ecocent can take air from outside, or warm moist air from a shower room or kitchen and then return cool fresh dry air somewhere you may need it

    Hi Mark, do you have any experience with the ecocent cylinders then? The plan was to have the vents over the showers and near the log burner, and maybe on in the utility room.

    Samsung he's is very good, and great price, hitachi yutaki again very good, Mitsubishi hugely overrated and priced. Nibe I wouldn't go near as they're like a closed shop and just want you to pay for training etc, I'm Dimplex accredited again ok but controls are a pain. I'd go with Samsung, give Grahame at freedom heat pumps a call

    Husky Air Source are one of the best new comers and very competitively priced. We typically can supply and install one for around £1500 less than Eco dans etc.

    Danfoss AQ is a good performing unit but not cheap
