Economical question about air to water

    Hello everyone,

    Unfortunately by mistake I guess I post the same question in the wrong categories, but anyway...

    We will finally get the keys of our new home in 1-2 weeks. The home is brand new, A2 BER with an air to water system and two zone control system.

    With the new raise in the cost of electricity we are now very keen to figure it out which will be the best plan to get it.

    I'm sure that we will already have a smart meter installed (I couldn't check the meter box yet) and we saw that some company offer day/night rates also on smart meter but the main question to all of the air to water users is... Which is the best plan for a couple that normally is out from 8/18 and use most of the electric appliances like dishwasher and wash machine during the night? TiA

    Is there a buffer tank with that heat pump if so best to heat that using cheaper rates.

    Once you go smart meter you can't go back apparently. Guy from airticity told me in a nudge nudge wink wink kind of way to stick with 24hr rate unless charging an EV

    We are planning to buy an EV car as well and apparently electric Ireland has day/night plan for smart meter as well so not sure whether this should be the best option because it is the first time for us to use an air to water system.
