What Are the Best Ductless Heat Pumps for Cold Weather?

As winter temperatures get more unpredictable, getting reliable, energy-efficient heating becomes critical for homeowners. Heat pumps have long been providers of the cleanest, most affordable home heating for decades, but which one is the best? Below, take a look at three ductless mini split brands that N.E.T.R., Inc. uses and the top features of each.

Mitsubishi Electric

Mitsubishi Electric offers some of the most technologically advanced mini split systems available on the market. They have multiple heat settings and features, making them a great fit for homeowners in cold climates. They’re also some of the quietest systems currently available and produce less noise than a human whisper. This is ideal for homes with young children or home offices that need more quiet.

Mitsubishi users enjoy precision engineering, state-of-the-art components, and intelligent controls for reliable, evenly-distributed warmth even on the coldest nights of the year. Like most current ductless systems, Mitsubishi mini splits offer smart controls that let homeowners manage their home comfort from any mobile device with an internet connection. You can set specific schedules that the system then carries out automatically, or you can adjust your settings in real time, no matter where you are.

The durability and longevity of Mitsubishi Electric mini-split systems are a key benefit, allowing them to withstand the test of time and perform at peak efficiency in every season. Users have the power to customize their indoor environment with programmable timers, smart controls, and other helpful features, so they can enjoy dependable, intelligent home heating for less.

LG is another trusted ductless brand we use at N.E.T.R., Inc. for its comprehensive heating capabilities and versatile installation options. With energy-efficiency at the forefront of their design, LG mini splits can operate in extremely cold climates without adding a ton to your electric bill.
