Jostudly, I have no idea how your remote temperature changed itself, unless you have a cat or dog that stepped on the button. Our remotes - one each for 2 units -- have never changed any setting on their own.
As for the temperature difference on your remote contrasted to your thermostat, I often experience that condition too. We have thermostats in every room, since there are baseboard heaters in every room. The readings seem to fluctuate a degree or a little more from the remote's readings, as we discussed in earlier posts. I note the thermostat nearest the inverter changes the most, I assume because it reacts to the unit's output fluctuations.
I have only had our inverters on heat setting once this fall, however. I have changed from A/C to dry, depending on the day, but heat, even at low temperature settiing overnight, heats up the house too much. Dry has an auto override so the unit decides fan speed. I know it is a little warmer near Greenwood than Moncton but not so much that I would imagine you need the heat setting. I just checked weather network and we're 16C opposed to your 14C. You'll be a little cooler overnight but not much. I'll be sticking to dry until we get some consistently cooler nights -- it was only 20C overnight Friday and the humidity was 100%.
Finally, I can attest to TVX's post about the merits of inverters. We have been here 2 winters, one with baseboard heat, one with Fujitsu units. The energy saving s have been more than we anticipated, winter and summer. The baseboards have become a decoration and we never use them except to heat a bath towel towel in February.
