good points, well made. this year i have yet to use the heat pump to heat the underfloor (trying to save money). have been using woodstoves to space heat living room, kitchen etc and going to bed cold just as we did in our childhood. This is not that bad a system and probably healthier than warm uniform temperatures in the house.

Would love to keep the heat pump as a back up if i could find someone to service it other than the installers, however despite the relatively simple technology of the compressor the hi tech electronics that control it put servicing beyond the scope of anyone not directly linked with the manufacturer.

i think the way forward is to burn things, make them hot and keep warm.
