Ductless Mini-Splits: Financial Considerations

Posted by Tom Vatter

Ductless systems have a number of advantages. However, despite this, customers still wonder if it really is a good investment for their home. The best way to determine this is to take a good look at some of the costs involved, as well as the saving you can gain by utilizing a ductless mini-split system in your home.

Upfront Costs

Ductless systems are comprised of an outdoor unit that houses the compressor, condenser, and reversing valve, and then indoor blowers which deliver the air. One single outdoor unit can support up to four indoor blowers. The number of blowers you want or need for your system is one of the factors that will impact your upfront costs.

Another factor is the number of BTUs (British Thermal Units) the ductless system has. Since this is a measurement of how efficient your system is, and a higher efficiency system costs more, this will also impact the initial cost of your ductless mini-split system.

How a Ductless Mini-Split Saves You Money

The important thing to remember is that even though a ductless system may be a bit more expensive than some other type of HVAC system—depending on its efficiency level and size—you are getting a two-in-one system. Ductless mini-splits allow for heating and cooling, eliminating the need for a replacement heater at the same time you’re on the market for an air conditioner, and vice-versa.

Additionally, the efficiency offered by these systems can have a significant impact on your monthly utility bills, whether you use gas or electricity.
