    Well, I have also settled on a Daikin, high wall mounted 7kw inverter. $3800 instsalled gst inclusive.
    I get to have it exactly where I want it for max efficiency and the outside unit won’t disturb my neighbours at all.
    I will be very careful in the first month of cold weather, so I can see what it raises the power bill like.

    Joybel, what a shame you have to lose your moptop tree, they are so beautiful and stylish in a garden.

    Do you realise, Cookbaby, that we are going to have another remote control to figure out. That makes Three TVs’ , Sky, video, DVD, 3 in one radio and heatpump. So pleased the loo still works wth a push button. My moptop was here when moved in. It is a dwarf variety with a very large moptop and planted behind the garage. I have to keep trimming it so I can get to the clothesline as the pathway is not wide. It is the wrong time to shift it but I hope I get a taker for it.

    Don’t worry Joybel, won’t be long, the wife wants one to make the seat go down!

    Of course I suppose we could all go back to the coal range chopping wood and filling coal scuttles! lol

    I can well remember when general carrying, shovelling coal to fill sacks, then delivering the dammed stuff. There was ALWAYS a big lump in the middle of your back. Then when you went home had a bath, get up in the morning and the sheets still went black! 🙁

    Think I will get one of those “remote organisers” I have seen somewhere. Probably in the Warehouse. When we lived in Ohakune back in the ’70s we used to have two big wooden bunker things for coal. We also had a pale ginger cat who used to love getting in one of them. Almost had to rename him Sooty!

    Cookybaby, With our heat pump we got a little “remote” holder that screws onto the wall at a convenient place. You may get the same.

    My friend has one of those Bryan. and it is positioned at the doorway. Must ask if I can have one. My tree has found a taker who is happy to give it a good shot. The only condition is that I accept nursey vouchers she wants to give me. What can I say, Cookybaby?

We r getting one soon, like yesterday, and the new thing in them now is a i spy i, that detects the cold areas and it says 2 itself that it must heat that area up. Also a plasma thingie inside that catches all the bugs and viruses mmmm, computer animated alright, a mitubishi it will be 4 us. Looking 4ward 2 having a pleasant winter with warm feet 2 mmmmm We have the unit coming from Beta Electrical, they have been just excellent, but they don’t have flybys just AA points, dammmmm. Nice 2 meet u all and do hope I get a pocket in the wall 4 my remote also, just need the breakfast on remote now LOl. bye all.

    Hi Joybel, Glad you have a taker for the tree now. The offer of a nursery voucher sounds really nice. I would accept it gracefully, after all, what goes round comes round!
    I know i said I was getting a Daikin, but am now getting another quote from someone else who sells and installs Fujitsu here. All three have quoted a different sized one for the same area, which puzzles me! The first was a Fujitsu 8KW, the second a Daikin 7KW and the third a Fujitsu 6.2KW. So, it’s getting smaller and cheaper every time!
    I just want one that will do the job efficiently and economically. The last guy (Fujitsu 6.2KW), said the other ones would be overkill.

    Just got hold of the Fujitsu guy today to ask why my quote was taking so long and he replied that two days ago his wife left him and he can’t commit to any jobs for a while, and that I was on his list to ring me and let me know.
    That must be terrible for him! But then, not knowing the circumstances……
    So it’s back to the Daikin for me. Can’t be bothered arranging any more quotes!

    My Daikin off the floor model is kws4.5, the lowest. A four would be enough he said, so I get a little extra. My unit is only 80+ sq. mts. My friend has a three bedroom, separate dining, kitchen and Lounge and she has a 7 I think. The 10th March is the big day here, getting excited. That was a blow, cookybaby having to start over again.

    Well, I now have the Daikin on the wall and all ready for the electrician to come wire it up on Monday! It is the 7 KW one as they quoted for my lounge dining kitchen open plan area. (46.8 sq mtrs) Must be same as your friend’s one.
    I can’t wait to try it out and will have fun programming it etc. Of course the real test will be those very cold months!

    Hey! that was fast, Cookybaby. Just as well I got one when I did as it will be getting chilly in a few weeks. It is still dark here till around 8am. I will be pleased to see daylight saving put to bed again.

    The heatpump was installed yesterday. Took 5 hours as the tubes had to be put through to the garage, then along the wall and out side through a space where the door is hinged and along the wall to where the air conditioner sits. It is an ugly eyesore in full view in my space, but that’s life. A bit of colourful grafitti over its pristine offwhiteness would help. I could plant a little hedge around. It was good to see there was a teenage lad in training and he did all he was told. The one I have, near the floor model was just so complex to look at when it was being installed. Now I just have to try and be intelligent enough not to muck up the remote. It is worth the cost and I am looking forward to a cosy winter now the Lakes are topped up. Cheers

    I am very happy with mine too, and I have tried out the air conditioner to cool my place on a few extremely hot days. It is wonderful and cool and takes out all the oppressive heat. I didn’t put it on for too long though and will compare the power bills with last years, for the next few months.
    My outside unit is tucked away very neatly near the back door.
