I have a Daikin heat pump and read on the manual that it should be serviced annually - the installer has quoted 280 quid to service it which seems like a rip off - I’ve been paying 60 quid to get a gas boiler serviced for years. I’ve no idea what’s involved and am guessing it’s similar to a fridge service
Can anybody comment on what’s involved in getting a service and what folks are paying? 220 extra a year in servicing cost wasn’t advertised when buying the heat pump vs oil or gas boiler but is a significant cost which will basically eat up any energy savings Im seeing with the unit.
Is the servicing essential and is 280 quid typical? It’s a Daikin unit

I have been getting mine serviced with unitherm.https://www.unithermhs.ie
It's been €175 for the last 2 years, need to get it done again soon. They were the providers so getting it done through them extended the warranty each time but I think that has reached its 3 year limit.
I'd love to be able to tell you whether they do good work but while I understand reasonably well how to use the thing my expertise stops there.https://www.daikin.ie/en_gb/service-residential/service-partners.html
There's a list of service partners there which might be worth a go.
Could you update me with how you get on?

Thanks for that - cheaper than my quote so I will
Check them out - but still three times what the gas boiler costs. It been working perfectly and obviously it’s an expensive unit so I want to maintain the warranty but wish I’d know about the servicing cost when buying it

have you got a power meter on the HP showing what the power commotion is in real time, thats a key item to keep an eye off how it is doing because if the compressor goes iffy, the back up clicks in at a COP of 1
IIRC the service includes checking the refrigerant , which I think attracts a more expensive service technician
