Ductless HVAC systems are incredibly efficient for a number of reasons. Ductless mini-splits, as they are also known as, are heat pump systems. Heat pump technology has made incredible leaps in the efficiency department. These systems are really unique in that they are both heaters and air conditioners. They heat your house and cool your house, all without the use of ducts. They simply reverse their mode of operation depending on the desired temperature. They transfer heat instead of actually generating heat.
In the summer, ductless systems cool the air. In the winter, they heat the air. There is an outdoor unit that connects with often multiple indoor “splits” that are installed in separate rooms. Because each indoor split is separate, the temperature can be adjusted separately too for your desired temperature in each living space. This zone control also saves on energy use.
They also save on energy use, because you’re not losing hot air or warm air through ductwork. The hot air or cool air always stays right inside the room. Ducted systems loose an incredible amount of warmed or cooled air through leaky ducts. These leaks cause your HVAC system to have to work harder just to balance the temperatures around your home. You can lose nearly a third of your conditioned air before it even reaches your living spaces with traditional ducted systems. Ductless systems completely eliminate this waste.
If you purchased a ductless system for $5000 and saved a completely reasonable $800.00 per year on heating costs, the system would pay for itself in about six and a half years. This is incredible considering many have amazing warranties that last 10 years! The easiest way to know if a heat pump ductless system will save you money and how much is to have a technician come out to evaluate your home. Many will do this service for free. Your home’s layout will determine the speed at which your splits will pay for themselves.
