So Far So Good

Neat unit. Can set time for when it heats up (we have solar panels). Has an app you can interact with as well. Reasonably priced and does what you want it to do. Just a matter of longevity and aftermarket service now. Show details

Would highly recommend

Only got it installed the other day and it has done everything that the brilliant plumber Johnny said it would do. It has the timer set to operate during sunshine hours so it costs me nothing due to solar. Show details

Great product, will recommend to anyone who's looking for a heat pump!

Super easy to configure through touchscreen panel, up to 3x time-slots for choosing which periods of the day to run. Fairly quiet heat pump. Wifi connectivity to home internet, able to use smartphone app anywhere in the world to check operation and change settings. It's been running for three months without any issues, we're four people with two showers in our home. Great product, will recommend to anyone who's looking for a heat pump. Show details

Great unit at affordable price

Great hot water unit. Despite a faulty pressure relief valve the unit has been working well. Timer option is great to work in with solar. Unit is a little noisy on heating as you would expect but not so loud that it disturbs anyone. Show details

So Far So Good. Everyone should have one

Has worked very well in the first three weeks for a 2-3 person household. The time scheduling is great to make use of the rooftop solar. The WiFi connection has been a problem through a brick wall with the Tuya app but have used another app that was easier to connect that gives basic information on how the water temperature is going so can adjust the time schedule to minimise run time before sunlight. The daily bill is down as it replaced a very old (15+ years) heat pump system that had served us well but had been fading and running almost full time over the past few months. Bang for buck looks very good for now. Show details

Happy with installation and supply

Happy with our heat pump Dynamic/X8. Plenty of hot water even early in morning before it begins to heat.
It is noisier than 42 db but this lasts about an hour.
So far no other issues. Show details
