I have the 34kw boiler (wood burner) but sometimes this is too much when days are mild, and I find myself having to burn wood for the sake of it just to keep the fire going[/quote]

Why do you need to keep the fire going on mild days?
We also have a 34kW wood burner, powering 13 radiators and have no problem letting it go out on mild days, or even mild nights of which last night was a case in point. That could be down to insulation I suppose, which is by far the cheapest method of ensuring warmth in winter and coolness in summer.
Also, picking up on a point that MW mad re smoke from the fire into the house. If you have that situation your installation is wrong. Sack your heating engineer and either get someone who knows what they're talking about or try doing a bit of research on Google regarding chimneys and stack effect. It's not rocket science.

There are many days when heat is needed for couple of hours also there will always be heat loss from windows walls ceilings that requires just a little heat to bring the temperature back up.

I am going to install one inverter heat pump to run when the wood burner is not required and see how that goes. I do not have aircon for summer so two birds in one

The query still stands.
