The Best Heat Pumps: 5 Safe, Efficient Heat Pump Models to Consider for Home Heating

Heat pumps typically are outdoor units that serve as air conditioners during the warmer months and heating sources during the colder months. Heat pumps extract heat either from the air or the ground outside and pump the heat into your home, which can be much more economical than gas or oil furnaces. Heat pumps may not be the most affordable heating option for some families, though, so it is important to determine whether your home is better suited to a heat pump, furnace, or ductless heat pump system.

Once you’ve determined that a heat pump is the best option for your home, there are a few questions you should consider before you make a purchase. One of the first decisions you need to make is which heat pump size you need to accommodate the size of your home or the space that you plan to heat. HVAC professionals often help homeowners to determine the heat pump size their home requires, as well as the optimal efficiency of the heat pump and the best brand to purchase.

Another option among heat pumps is a ductless heat pump. These heat pumps especially are appropriate for add-ons to homes or areas of the home that do not have a ducted heating system. Or, your home may require a small space heating system. Ductless heat pumps are popular because of their small size and flexible options for heating individual rooms.

You could survey home heating professionals to get all of your heat pump answers, but we aim to save you some time by sharing our picks for the best and safest heat pumps available. Please note, we have listed our top picks for best and safest heat pumps here, in no particular order.
