Do Mini-Split Systems Save Money?

Do Mini-Split Systems Save Money?

When it comes to your home heating and cooling, we’re sure you’d love to save money any way you can — without cutting corners, of course. Well, the secret to saving on your home heating and cooling is having an efficient system that fits your needs.

Since they are becoming more popular in homeowners' eyes, people often wonder if mini-split systems save money. Well, the answer is yes! Here’s how:

Mini-Splits Don’t Waste As Much Energy

When there is ductwork involved in your HVAC system, warm or cool air can escape through small slits or cracks in the ducts, wasting energy and requiring your system to work harder to make up for the loss. Mini-splits don’t use ductwork, so the treated air goes right to the space it’s heating or cooling.

Mini-Splits Are Easier to Install

Since they don’t require ductwork to be installed throughout your home, mini-splits are much easier and affordable to install. They only require a thin hole in the wall to allow refrigerant to be pumped to the indoor unit from the outdoor unit.

You Install Separate Units

Rather than relying on one unit to cover several rooms, mini-splits allow you to easily install separate units and create a custom comfort level in each room in your home. This is especially great if everyone in your home has a different opinion on how hot or cool the house should be — now they can customize the temperature in their rooms to fit their particular needs.

You Use Energy Star Rated Systems

When deciding which unit to install in your home, always check the energy efficiency. The more energy efficient a unit is, the less energy it will use — meaning you’ll have lower energy bills.
