What is the typical cost of a ductless heat pump? Is it more expensive than a traditional duct system? It depends on how you look at it. Although unit cost and installation cost of a ductless heat pump (mini-split) is higher initially, over time there can be significant savings to make it easier on your wallet.
The typical unit cost with install ranges from $3000 to $5000, depending on your home or business’s needs. Other factors may include equipment manufacturer and model, refrigerant line-set length, and difficulty of installation. Multi-zone installations also come with an additional investment.
If a venting system isn’t in place in your home, then getting a ductless system is an obvious choice. The time, labor and costs involved in adding duct work to an existing structure is an impractical expense, and it’s difficult to install correctly to maintain energy efficiency; An incorrectly installed duct system can result in a 30% loss of energy.
If you already have a vented heating system in place, it is recommended to keep it as a backup for secondary living zones or in the rare cases in the Pacific Northwest where extreme temperatures occur.
