A/C and heating combo

    Wondering if anyone here installed something like this.
    You can get them with 3 or 4 internal units also, could do all bedrooms upstairs.
    I know A/C in Ireland :D but better to use the power than export it and in theory the heating part can be used in the colder months (the ones with some sun at least) since I think the heating was on later this year.
    The outside unit seems to be a heat pump though and they are known to not last long

    I’ve been looking into those. Air to air heat pumps. Also called air conditioners although some are designed to be more efficient at lower temp for heating. Suspect the real cheap models won’t last so long and hard to fix get parts. Think more popular in other parts of world. Contemplating Diy. But also waiting on a quote. Just after one unit for easy efficient quick heat stove to do the rest when needed in the deep of winter. Makes sense to me but not so common hear.
