    13C - 19C, LOL.
    As Sparky_NY said. We do occasionally get real winter temperatures. Rarely, but it happens. We had a couple nights, after I installed the system, where it got down between 17F and 19F.
    This system does not have the electric backup heater (aka "Emergency Heat") that most heat pumps have. However, it had no problems keeping the house warm.
    Finding creative ways to turn material into scrap for decades.

    Current Machines:
    South Bend 13” Lathe (being rebuilt)
    Bridgeport Mill (step pully J)
    Garvin 2A horizontal mill
    Ohio 20” shaper
    Harbor Freight 4x6 band saw

      I've has a 12,000BTU mini-split in my 300sf workshop for the last four years. Cost £450 including delivery. Installation was simple and it controls the temperature and humidity all through the year. Outside temperatures range from about 15°F to 85°F in a typical year. Average power consumption is about 250W with a well insulated workshop.
