Ductless heating and cooling in one system can start fully installed and ready to turn on for as little as $3,499, and the price goes up from there depending on a number of factors.
Ductless Systems Are Whisper-Quiet
By now you may already know that ductless is a quiet, efficient heating and air conditioning solution for your home that will reduce your energy costs and in some cases, pay for itself in energy savings.
But, what can a homeowner expect to pay for this modern, convenient heating and air conditioning solution in the Central Pennsylvania area?
Ductless mini-split technology has been around for more than 50 years and dominates the European and Asian HVAC market, but has only been available to Pennsylvania homeowners for about thirty years.
Unfamiliarity with ductless technology and spotty access to educational information has slowed the growth of ductless acceptance in the United States, but the efficiency of ductless has caused major utility companies, government agencies, and homeowners to take notice.
The financial incentives associated with ductless technology have made it one of the fastest growing ways to heat and cool your home in the HVAC industry. So, how much can you expect to pay to have a Mitsubishi ductless system installed in your home? Well, it depends.
The price of a ductless system is determined by four primary factors:
- – The size of the unit
- – The type of unit
- – The number and square footage of areas (or zones) being covered
- – The degree of difficulty of the installation (how far the indoor and outdoor units are from each other, the construction of the outer wall to be drilled to carry the line sets, etc.)
Due to the flexibility of these systems (whole house, partial house, one room, etc.) there are multiple configuration possibilities that can slide your job from the lower end of the cost range to the highest. A ductless system, on its most basic level, consists of:
AT LEAST ONE INDOOR WALL UNIT (EVAPORATOR/AIR HANDLER)
AN OUTDOOR CONDENSER
AND, LINE SETS TO CONNECT THE TWO TOGETHER
Single Zone Mitsubishi Dustless Installation
Professional installation of the most basic, or single zone, configuration (consisting of one wall unit and condenser) will cost between $2,800 and $4,500 installed. This layout is ideal for many kinds of applications like heating and cooling a sun room, garage, attic, and some smaller homes.
A single ductless unit is perfect for keeping a sun room comfortable all year long.
Multi-Zone Mitsubishi Ductless Installation
Some Pennsylvania homeowners need only one ductless unit, while other applications are better served by 3, 4 or 5 units. It all depends on the layout of the home and what works best for you.
A multi-zone system consisting of two indoor evaporator units typically run between $5,900 and $7,500.
We can run as many as five indoor units with a single outdoor condenser, and we can come back to add indoor units at a later date if you want to have your system designed for future expansion as budgets allow.
A 5-zone system will run you between $12,000 and $20,000, depending on the options.
Is Ductless A Good Value For My Money?
At first glance, the cost of ductless heating and air conditioning can seem steep, however, the benefits in energy efficiency will save you a lot in the long run. Since there are no ducts, you won’t waste energy via leaky duct work.
Typical forced air systems experience duct losses equivalent to about 20% of the system’s energy consumption.
Ductless systems are also less expensive to maintain than traditional systems. A multi-zone configuration comes with an additional energy savings benefit, as you can control the temperature independently in every room where an air handler is installed.
So if you’re not using a room, you won’t have to keep it heated or cooled the same as the rest of the house.
