If you want cheap then go with chinese like Alto or Duratech.

Competition are made in China but to a spec laid down by the Canadian company.

The best heat pump you can get is the Nirvana, made in Canada, best for the lower temperatures in the UK or Elecro import the Gulfstream, made in Florida, but more pricey than the Nirvana.

IŽd stay clear of Alto ones. If been working on a few of those recently, and they are a nightmare.

Heat Perfector are an excellent machine, well made and reasonably priced and will last for years to come. Made in America and have excellent service back up in the UK.
Competition are Ok, but are made in China.
Alto avoid at all costs.
Either that Calorex or Heatstar are good, but they are expensive.
