Bitcoin or something similar might be a good choice if a heat pump is not an option. You can even make use of "unprofitable" used hardware - it just has to make enough to make it worthwhile.

And there's also the "low tech" reflector incandescent or halogen bulb...
A standard window AC would freeze up at outdoor temps below about 60. Not useable as a heat pump when simply put in the window backwards.
