Heat pump question

    Apologies if this has been answered before but I searched and couldn't find an exact match. I am currently looking to buy a new build in a development with ~100 houses. The houses are fantastic but they come with 1 thing I am unsure of, the heat pumps. I am worried about these as I am afraid I won't be able to make the house warm enough. We are viewing the house for the first time on Friday and I would like to be able to ask questions around this but I know basically nothing (apart from my own reading about how they work). The spiel from the builder is as follows; Heating:
    - Dimplex Heat Pump
    - High Energy Efficient Thermostatic Controlled Radiators throughout the House
    - Each Room can be Individually Controlled
    - Dual Coil Water cylinder including Zoned Heating

    Basically what does the above mean exactly?

    Houses are roughly 1400 square ft and no UFH. Obviously new builds are A3 and designed to retain heat but am I making a mistake? The radiators worry me as I have read they work best with larger radiators and the temp never reaches "toasty"!
