Mini-Split HVAC Units
Heating For a Fraction of The Cost
Mini-splits provide a great heating and cooling solution at the fraction of the cost of adding a complete HVAC system to your home. Central systems require ductwork to be installed throughout your home. A mini split allows you the same temperature control and incredibly efficient performance saving you money and preserving your comfort over the winter and the summer months.
4 Reasons to Add a Mini-Split
No Ducts? No Problem! Ventilation systems require ducts. When you install a mini-split system you bypass the need for ducts when warming (or cooling!) an area in the home.These systems are also smaller, making installation a cinch.
You'll have complete temperature control. Mini-split heat pumps provide zones for varying temperature throughout the home. You can adjust some areas to be cooler and other areas to be warmer without skyrocketing bills.
Increased energy efficiency. Mini-splits are operated individually so that you can choose to only heat the area of the home you are using. This means ductless heat pumps can save you a ton on utility costs!
Increased Property Value. If you plan on selling your property or offering it for rental, a mini-split system is a great way to add value to your living space. They increase energy efficiency, decreasing the carbon footprint of your home. These systems also last up to two times longer than central HVAC systems, providing exceptional value for your investment.
Expect to pay anything from $2,000 to $8,000 for each zone. You should expect to pay $11,000 or higher if you have more than two zones. Expect to pay $20,000 or more for a whole house with ductless units. This equates to a total price range of $5,000 to $30,000, or perhaps more. The majority of single-room mini-split systems will fall somewhere in the middle of that range. Also, be sure that all labor fees and other expenditures are included in the estimate when comparing pricing.
Mini-split systems should be serviced on the same schedule as central HVAC systems. The twice-yearly servicing helps to keep the system running smoothly and the interior air quality high. When a mini-split system isn't cleaned for an extended period of time, the risk of premature component wear, mold growth, and the formation of unusual odors grows dramatically. Furthermore, extra dirt, dust, or mold in your mini-split system can lower air quality in your house by cycling pollutants into your living area.
A ductless mini-split heat pump system is a versatile and cheap solution for houses without existing ducts, garages, or new home additions because it does not require ductwork.
Another big benefit is improved indoor air quality. With a mini-split system, the air within a single room is filtered without being mixed with air from other parts of the home. Extra pollution is removed without the need for ducting.
Finally, due to defects, gaps, and fractures in normal ductwork, typical air conditioners waste energy on a regular basis. Cold air can escape via these spaces, resulting in higher energy expenses. This is not the case with the mini-split system due to the fact that there is no ductwork to be concerned with.
