If you’re thinking about a ductless HVAC system for your home, the first question that comes to mind is probably how much do ductless HVAC systems cost?
If you’ve done any research, you may have had trouble finding a straight answer to that question, but here at Irish Heating and Air, we believe in being transparent and straight-forward.
That’s why we put our pricing on our website so you know exactly what a ductless HVAC system costs upfront.
You’ll see a range of prices because there are still factors that influence the cost of a ductless system, but
Ductless HVAC Systems Save You Money All Year Long
When considering how much a new ductless HVAC system may cost, you also have to weigh-in how much money you can be saving. Your old, inefficient unit is causing you to have a high power bill and countless repair bills when something breaks on. A ductless HVAC unit can save you about 40% on your power bill every month.
Not to mention a traditional HVAC system with ducts works to heat and cool the entire house at the same time. You end up with hot and cold spots and usually at least one room that’s uncomfortable. In what world does this make sense when you have other options?
Ductless HVAC systems work in zones, so they operate more efficiently and cost less, but you’ll also be more comfortable in your home.
When you choose a ductless system, you’ll also save money on the labor and materials because you won’t need extensive ductwork in the home.
Ductless HVAC Systems Last with Minimal Maintenance
You can expect your ductless HVAC system to last at least 20 years. They’re great units especially when you choose a proven manufacturer and a professional installer. What’s even better is that you won’t have to do a lot of maintenance to the system over the years, which will save you money.
You’ll need to have a maintenance schedule with your HVAC professional to do basic maintenance and a professional servicing and cleaning occasionally. As the owner, you’ll want to change the filters monthly. That combined with the fact that mini-split systems have low failure rates, your system will be paying for itself in no time compared to a traditional system.
So when you’re considering the cost of installing a new ductless HVAC system in your home, you may want to take a moment and assess your current situation. How much is your old, inefficient unit costing you? Do you really want to install another one of those?
And if you don’t currently have a whole-home system and are relying on window air conditioners, baseboard heating, and the like – why not make the change? You’ll be glad you aren’t dealing with the hassle and costs of those units once you make the switch.
