To keep it short, the term “mini split heat pump” typically refers to a heat pump system that doesn’t use ductwork and relies on indoor units to condition the space. Heat pump means it has both the heating and cooling function.
If you don’t have duct work, it might be best to consider a mini split heat pump. Mini split systems use the same concept as air source but they’re for houses without a forced-air heating system.
If you have a solar array, heat pumps will be a great addition to the property as unused power generated by solar can now be used by your heating system and lower your energy bill.
If you don’t have a solar array, heat pumps are still a great choice for decreasing dependence on fossil fuels and electrifying your HVAC system.
Currently, in Colorado, based on eligibility, there are three incentives for heat pumps:
Each of these programs help pay for a significant amount of upfront costs.
The cost of installing a mini split air conditioning system can vary significantly depending on a number of factors, including the size and type of unit you choose, the complexity of the installation, and the location of the installation. In general, you can expect to pay anywhere from $3,200 to $10,000 or more for a complete mini split installation.
There are a few key factors that can influence the cost of a mini split installation:
Size and type of unit: The size and type of mini split unit you choose will have a big impact on the overall cost of the installation. Larger units and multi-zone systems will typically be more expensive to install than smaller, single-zone units.
Complexity of the installation: The complexity of the installation can also affect the overall cost. Factors that can increase the complexity of the installation include the need for electrical work, the distance of the unit from the indoor unit and more.
Location of the installation: The location of the installation can also impact the overall cost.
There are a few reasons why mini split systems can be more expensive to install compared to traditional central air conditioning systems.
Complexity of installation: Mini split systems require the installation of both an outdoor unit and an indoor air handler, which can be more complex than installing a single central air conditioning unit. The indoor air handler must be connected to the outdoor unit with a conduit, which includes the power and refrigerant lines. This conduit must be properly sealed to prevent leaks. In addition, the outdoor unit must be properly installed and secured to ensure proper operation.
Customization: Mini split systems are designed to be customized to the specific needs of the homeowner. This means that the system may need to be customized to fit the layout of the home and the specific cooling and heating needs of the homeowner. Customization can add to the cost of the installation.
Electrical and ductwork: Mini split systems typically do not require the use of ductwork, but they do require electrical work to be installed. This can add to the cost of the installation, especially if the home does not have an existing electrical system in place or if the existing electrical system needs to be upgraded.
Whether or not a mini split system is worth the money will depend on your specific circumstances and needs. Mini split systems can offer a number of benefits, including:
Energy efficiency: Mini split systems are generally more energy efficient than traditional central air conditioning systems because they use a variable speed compressor, which can adjust the cooling output to match the specific needs of the home. This can help to save energy and reduce energy costs.
Customization: Mini split systems are designed to be customized to the specific needs of the homeowner. This means that they can be tailored to fit the layout of the home and the specific cooling and heating needs of the homeowner.
Quiet operation: Mini split systems are known for their quiet operation, making them a good choice for homes where noise is a concern.
Ductless installation: Mini split systems are relatively easy to install and do not require the use of ductwork, which can make them a good choice for homes that do not have existing ductwork or that are difficult to retrofit with ductwork.
In general, mini split systems can be more expensive to install compared to traditional central air conditioning systems. The cost of installing a mini split system can vary significantly depending on a number of factors, including the size and type of unit you choose, the complexity of the installation, and the location of the installation
In general, you can expect the installation of a ductless mini split system to take anywhere from a few hours to a full day or more.
Here are the general steps involved in installing a ductless mini split system:
Planning and preparation: The first step in installing a ductless mini split system is to plan and prepare for the installation. This includes choosing the location for the indoor and outdoor units, determining the size and type of unit needed, and ensuring that the electrical and refrigerant lines can be run to the units.
Installing the outdoor unit: The outdoor unit of the mini split system is typically installed on a concrete pad or other stable surface near the side of the house. The unit must be properly secured and the electrical and refrigerant lines must be properly connected.
Installing the indoor unit: The indoor unit of the mini split system is typically installed on an exterior wall or in the ceiling. The unit must be properly secured and the electrical and refrigerant lines must be properly connected to the outdoor unit.
Testing and commissioning: Once the units are installed, the system must be tested and commissioned to ensure that it is operating correctly. This may involve adjusting the refrigerant charge and checking the system for leaks.
Again, the length of time it takes to install a ductless mini split system can vary significantly depending on the specific circumstances of the installation.
