Thanks.

& my reason for asking is that my neighbour is now looking at one for upstairs heating cooling / maybe a split head for the living room below.

I can only state so many times that their north facing wall really needs insulating, old fireplace opening up & "sorting" box window insulating properly (it hangs outside via wall supports but a chasm of space & cold beneath) ..also more knowledge for me because I'd prefer not to screw up the final seating for ours (its been a long time coming).

Yes there are a lot of threads to glean here, but would appreciate direction to a concise guide to ASHP's.
Mike Boxwell is no longer around it seems otherwise i'd ask him if he's done a book (his solar guide in laymans terms was always very good).

Anything out there be it for fitters or just a comprehensive pre-fitting guide?

That link did not work for me, but I found it at, https://heatpumps.co.uk/


Also the knowledge hub at Kensa is good for technical info. I managed to find enough info there to make my own river source heatpump collector.

Another vote for John Cantor's website. I had a good scrabble around it when I was considering mine a while back.

He also has a book out available as an eBook as well:

Cheers for the Cantor link guys.

By flippin chance the book is released tomorrow (23rd Nov 2020) in kindle form. for under 8.54 / dilemma, tree or E ?

Ta Nowty! ..I reckon the position I've got in mind will be good & short runs but thats my own imaginings not necessarily fact, ..not keen on it being front of house, but hey, ..my other concern is not freezing  / shock heating my lovely nearby mature specimen fir tree.

Can anyone comment on hiding the pipe runs beneath exterior wall insulation as a good /bad idea? & should an access channel be pre-empted into the project?
