Hi everyone, I just want to check with rest something related to this.

For Auckland, relevant outside temperature is 1C to determine the heating requirement. Is it also everyone’s understanding that it also is part of the requirement when determining the right heating device? I guess this is more a question for heatpumps, as it’s the only heating source whose heating output is affected by the outside temperature.

Another way to ask this if in Auckland, if I determined through the calculator, that I need 4kw of heating, using a heatpump with a 4KW published heating output (which is an H1 – 7C) is definitely not going to be compliant? Using H2 (2degreeC conditions) is very much closer but really still do not meet Auckland requirements?
