I agree to Sundberg84
I'm a happy user, Domotics have a large community and most what you need, someone already have spend some time with it, to make it work one way or another...

RE: Heatpump controller
I took 5v from the heatpump, mine is an IVT, I took it from the Ir receive, soldered 2wires, one GND and on for 5V and drilled a hole on the plastic casing, and then I had power for the Wemos D1 Mini Pro module.
Then 100 Ohm resister in series with the Irda LED 940nm Ir LED, connected to GPio16/D0 on the Wemos module.
Downlaod the ESPEASYT files + download Tonis heatpump /P115 lib and put it in same Arduino IDE, compile it all together
RE: 💬 Heatpump / airconditioner controller
Hi you should provide your heatpump info to Toni at the below link. check manufacturer + model + relevant data from your remote control and also your protocol info. then other persons using your heatpump can benefit from your work
PS. I am for my heatpump not using arduino/mysensors, as it was actually much easier to use/integrate Wemos D1 Pro mini + ESPEASy + P_115 heatpumpir into my Domoticz.
RE: ESP8266 questions before buying
I also vote for Wemos D1 Mini Pro
But I have no intention to use those for battery operation, As the other guys states, only option for low power battery operation is Arduino+ NRF24L01+
Actually a fairly little nice device:
RE: Monitoring a wood boiler heating system
I would assume to drill a hole in the metal chimney that is between the wood boiler and the brick chimney.
then depending of the K-type thermocouple
then there is a nut so you can secure this like this:
Or else you can sealed with special heat resistant seal:
