Heat pump simulation mode

With ASHPs being pushed so aggressively in the U.K. and with Tado users likely being on the forefront of heating efficiency, it seems to me that a ‘simulation’ mode would be helpful.
The idea would be that tado (when linked to digital connections) would cap the max water temp at 55 deg and ideally target lower temps. It would favour longer running and probably seek to activate much earlier than usual for the target temp.

By doing this, householders could simulate what it would be like to own one.

    This is a very interesting idea. I will pitch it to our devs.

    55c for a heat pump is high, I understand from what I have been reading, that 50 is the max flow rate for medium efficiency, and around 45, for medium / high, with 40c being about the best range (the lower the better).
