Best Heat Pump Brands of 2021

January 26, 2021

 

Ductless heat pumps provide home comfort for both cooler and warmer air without the costs associated with inefficient duct HVAC systems. Instead, ductless units consist of an outdoor compressor and indoor head. This two-part system allows the heat pump to remove heat more efficiently from inside your home in the summer and send it outside or remove heat from the air outside and bring it into your home in the winter.

As a result, you always enjoy a consistent, comfortable temperature year-round at a much lower monthly cost. If you are considering a heat pump for your home, here are the best heat pump brands to consider for 2021.

What Types of Heat Pumps are Available?

You can choose from three types of ductless heating systems:

  • Single Zone systems designed for single rooms as well as additions or rooms where you find the temperature tends to stay too cold or too hot.
  • Multi-Zone systems ideal for small- to mid-sized homes with two to eight zones/rooms. Each zone is controlled independently to manage the comfort level as required.
  • Whole House systems provide maximum efficiency for mid-sized to large houses allowing you to enjoy ideal, individual temperatures for up to 8 rooms.

Whether you have a room that can’t accommodate ducts, are experiencing inconsistent temperatures throughout your home, or have an addition or bonus room that requires heating and cooling, heat pumps provide the most affordable, flexible, individualized energy efficient system available. You can learn more about what a Ductless Heat Pump is here.

The Best Heat Pump Brands

Here are some of the best heat pump brands:

Daikin

Daikin helps keep the air in your home at the perfect temperature using Air Intelligence technologies. You have more power with Daikin thermostats and controls, with apps and programmable technology allowing you to control temperatures remotely. Daikin offers quiet, smooth operation keeping both your indoor and outdoor environments more comfortable. They also take up little space making them easier to install and introduce into rooms of all sizes.

Daikin Emura Indoor

Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi is one of the top-selling brands in America. Its sleek design complements its exceptional performance. As well, Mitsubishi’s Hyper-Heating INVERTER® (H2i) technology works even when temperatures drop as low as -13° F as opposed to other brands that might require supplemental heat sources. The heat produced by cold air is leveraged efficiently using Start technology, so you always access warm air when you need it. The inverter zoning systems deliver the amount of hot air needed so the system doesn’t constantly run like ductless systems costing you money on wasted energy. As with Daikin, indoor units can be mounted in out of the way positions, making the most of the space in smaller rooms. It is super quiet and has SEER ratings as high as 24.8 and HSPF rating as much as 12.8.

Fujitsu

Fujitsu heat pumps offer high energy efficiencies allowing many homeowners to reduce their energy bills by as much as 24%. They offer a selection of design types allowing you to choose the model that suits your room size and configuration including wall mounts, floor mounts or ceiling “cassettes”. Their Smart Speaker system is compatible with Alexa and Google Home to set room temperatures by voice.

They are highly reliable, with 99% of installation lasting the life expectancy of the unit or longer in the 40-years of the company’s history. Their split systems are energy rated for SEER at 15.0 to 20.0 and 0HSPF from 8.5 to 11.5. Learn more about why Alpine Ductless installs Fujitsu ductless heatPumps.
