Hello again, your Hitachi dealer listed below deals in Mitsubishi equipment as well... Mitsubishi is bit more established than Hitachi...
If it turns out that the company has been in business longer than 5 or 10 years, under the same ownership, and his prices are reasonable. A Hitachi system would worth a look.
However at those prices, I would consider one or two 'through the wall heat pumps' at a tiny fraction of the cost... those are not as attractive, or as quiet...but you can buy two of them for less than 400 lbs each as a rule, and when one of them fails after 5 or 10 years you just shove it out the opening onto the lawn and fit a new one. Meantime the one remaining unit will keep the house comfortable until you get the failed one replaced.
There are no repair costs with those... and you can choose to heat and cool only the space you are in at the time, thats the similar advantage that the Hitachi split system offers, but at much less initial cost.
If you think the 1900 lb fuel cost savings per year might be worth the huge initial investment and on gong repair costs... ask the company if they will guarantee the cost savings.
(they seldom ever do, because the sales presentation is generally quite a bit optimistic.)
It is my view that annual savings on an 800 square foot house does *not warrant getting involved with an ultra complex system as the Hitachi or Mitsubishi offerings.... when that one unit fails, and all do sooner or later, then the entire house is without heating or cooling.
