What’s the Best Heating System for a House in the Northeast?

Looking for a heating system that can handle New England winters?

Talk to Kearney HVAC about heat pump installation today.


One of the most important factors if you’re looking to install a new heating system in your home is where you live. The year-round weather will play a major role in the heating system you need to keep your home comfortable, especially through the coldest months of the year.

Furnaces and boilers are the traditional tried-and-true heating systems for the Northeast, and current energy efficient models can help you save money on energy bills compared to the heating systems of yesterday. But there are also HVAC alternatives available that can dramatically increase your savings while delivering the same reliable comfort for your North Shore or Seacoast home.

The Best Heating System for Cold Climates? Heat Pumps!

There’s a popular misconception that electric heat pumps aren’t tough enough to make it through a Massachusetts winter and keep your home warm, but that’s just not true! Mitsubishi Electric heat pumps offer a number of advantages over other heating and cooling systems, including:

  • Superior energy efficiency

  • Lower energy bills

  • Hyper-Heating technology for cold weather

  • No risk of carbon monoxide leaks

  • Heating and cooling settings for year-round comfort

  • Ducted and ductless mini-split options

To handle the freezing winter weather in New England, Mitsubishi Electric mini splits and ducted heat pumps use highly efficient industry-leading Hyper-Heating technology to continue operating in temperatures as low as -13° F! 

The Benefits of Mitsubishi Electric Heat Pumps and Mini Splits 

There are a few additional benefits of heat pumps that make them great HVAC candidates for this climate.

First, they come with both heating and cooling settings, which allows them to be used year-round and can replace your aging and inefficient furnace and AC. With their high-efficiency operation, you can count on lower energy bills all year-long.

Second, air source heat pumps come in a few different configurations—the two most common are ducted and ductless. Ducted heat pumps connect right into your home’s central ductwork system, and deliver conditioned air out of your vents.

On the other hand, ductless heat pumps, often called mini-splits, don’t require any ductwork—the indoor component, known as an air handler, is installed right in the room or area you’re looking to target. Mitsubishi Electric mini-splits can be installed throughout a home or they can be used in addition to an existing ducted HVAC system. This often comes in handy for older New England homes suffering from particular rooms or areas that are difficult to keep comfortable.
