Minisplit installed

In goes the unit that will serve all the heating and cooling needs of the house. It is a Toshiba 7.1kw unit (most powerful available on single phase power supply) with some clever features. It has various sensors that allow the air to be directed at zones where people are. It also displays it current kw usage. In subsequent tests it keeps the entire house (230sqm+) cool and dry (26C 60% RH) in mid summer (34C 80% RH) with a drain of 300-500 watts. That's astoundingly good and is the first example of just how well the passive standards are working.
