What Are the Five Best Heat Pump Brands for Your Home?

September 18, 2018

You may have decided that it's time to get a new home, and you'd like to update your heating and cooling system. Or maybe it's time to upgrade your current home with a new heating and cooling system. Either way, you've made a good choice that will give you plenty of comfort and convenience, and it will even lower your bills. But now that you know you want a ductless heat pump, which one should you get? That's what we're here to discuss!

1. Daikin

This Japanese company is now the biggest HVAC company in the world, which should tell you a lot about their products! Not only do you get excellent performance with a Daikin system, but you also get an HVAC company that devotes all their time to these products. They have one of the best warranties in the business, so that's a lot of peace of mind!

2. Fujitsu

Fujitsu has the distinction of being the third oldest information technology company in the world, with only Hewlett-Packard and IBM that are older! But they've branched out beyond computers to carry a range of HVAC products as well. Fujitsu products are so rugged that even Canadians rely on them when the temperature drops to -15 degrees Fahrenheit to keep them warm!

3. Mitsubishi

While Daikin may be the biggest HVAC company, Mitsubishi is the one that sells the most in America due to the fact that they have been in America since the 1980s. Back then, ductless systems were not as popular as they are today. Mitsubishi offers sleek designs and comparable warranties to Daikin and Fujitsu. If your biggest concern is performance, Mitsubishi is often the one you'll go with. However, that doesn't mean that there's only one brand that's good for all situations. Different homes and businesses will have different needs.

4. Samsung

This Korean company started out back in 1918 as a humble seller of dried fish and noodles. Today, however, it's the largest conglomerate in South Korea and one of the more prominent multinationals in the world. And of course, they've branched out a lot and now embrace electronics and Samsung HVAC system as part of their products! Samsung units work well in homes, and the outdoor compressors have a smaller, more compact design for people concerned about size.

5. Panasonic

Unlike Samsung, Panasonic has always been an electronics company. Originally called Matsushita, the company got its start in 1918 creating light sockets. Today, Panasonic ductless heat pump systems are made for both residential and commercial needs, and they have systems with great, modern features like Wi-Fi connectivity, so you no longer have to go from room to room to check on or operate your system!
