Help with MQTT HVAC

I was wondering if anyone had any tips around this component - specifically if it is possible to get it working with my setup.

What I would love to do is run it with the HVAC-component, specifically to make i available through my Google Home, but I haven’t been able to figure it out yet.

My current setup is detailed here: Automated heat pump!

The particular thing that is causing me problems is that I have to update all settings over MQTT in a combined string - an example is “heatpumpir,panasonic_dke,1,5,3,16,0,0” - while the component seems to want to send commands for temperature setting, swing mode etc. separately.

Does anyone know a way around this?
