If you are looking at adding ductless mini-splits to your Cape Cod home or business, you probably have a lot of questions, especially if you have no prior experience with them.
You’ve come to the right place! The Fuel Company is the Upper and Mid-Cape region’s full-service provider of ductless mini-split installation, maintenance, and repairs. We are committed to a greener Cape Cod, and we believe that the high efficiency and comfort of ductless mini-splits help bring that about.
One topic you may have questions about is the costs associated with purchasing, installing, and servicing ductless mini-splits. We’re here to comprehensively cover this so that you have a better understanding of the systems and how they can be a cost-effective option for your home or business.
On average, a Mitsubishi wall-mounted ductless unit costs between $4,000 and $8,000, depending on the size and layout of your home and other factors that affect a successful ductless HVAC installation.
When compared with traditional heating and cooling systems such as furnaces, boilers, and central air conditioners, ductless mini-splits are more cost-effective in several ways.
For starters, an Energy Star®-certified ductless mini-split can cut both your cooling and heating costs by 30%! Our Mitsubishi ductless mini-splits use the latest technology in their compressors and fans to maximize energy efficiency.
When it comes to home cooling, ductless mini-splits are dramatically superior to window air conditioning units. They are more efficient, cover a larger area, and are quieter. They also get rid of the worst parts of window units, which block the light, are a security risk, and let in dirt, pollen, and bugs.
The precision of ductless mini-splits is a major factor in how you reduce your heating and cooling costs. They generate zoned cooled or heated air exactly where it’s needed. A traditional forced-air system can lose up to 30% of its heated air as it travels through the ductwork, including some that escapes through leaks in the ductwork itself. In the summer, a central air conditioning system loses a similar amount thanks to leaks and radiant loss.
By using ductless heat pump systems to heat and cool your home, those losses are a thing of the past. You stay cozy and comfortable while shrinking your energy costs and your environmental impact.
You will have several choices of controller for your ductless mini-split. Most wall-mounted units come with a standard wireless handheld controller that resembles a remote control. You can also pay extra for wall-mounted thermostats for each zone. That can add anywhere from several hundred dollars to more than $1,000 to the cost, depending on how many zones you have. The Mitsubishi Kumo Cloud controllers allow you to monitor and adjust your ductless heat pump system through your smartphone from anywhere you get a signal!
There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to the installation of a ductless mini-split system. Each one is a custom job. Some homes need more specialized design and equipment, especially for older homes or homes near the bay or the ocean. One example of this is Mitsubishi’s Hyper-Heating INVERTER® technology, designed to keep your home warm and comfortable in extreme cold, down to -13°F, while remaining energy efficient.
