We have moved into a property with an Ecodan air source heating system (some underfloor heating and some radiators). I have set it to run 24hrs as it is winter. We also have a gas aga with aims but this is for cooking only. Mostly the house is warm house, but there are areas that are not so warm, such as the downstairs shower room that only has a heated towel rail, and the extension that has under floor heating. I need someone to guide me with this, I also need someone who knows what they are doing to service the system as it is 2 years old. Mitsubishi is too expensive.

Servicing on an ecodan is basic, it's all in the user manual.

Setting up your heating system requires a professional to come and look at it and identify any faults / reconfiguration etc.

Rule 1 with heat pumps, they aren't boilers, don't switch them on and off, don't turn the heating up and down, program it and leave it to do it's job, it will work most efficiently then. Properly designed they are 'right sized' and use weather compensation / heat curves as standard.

Our experience is that often the ufh actuators are mis-wired (linked to the wrong stat :) ) found that 3 times in the last 3 visits to 'other' installers systems.

Thank you Worcester, so do I need an Ecodan engineer, or would a regular heating engineer be able to service and make any necessary fixes (Mitsubishi said it would need a antifreeze top up).

Spk to quality, you need someone that knows heat pumps. And I'd always go for an approved installer
