As a leader in innovation and design, Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating has served as an essential player in technological development. Mitsubishi’s heating and cooling advancements have helped homeowners across the globe achieve optimal comfort without breaking the bank, and their commitment to quality has resulted in the creation of HVAC products that far surpass industry performance standards.
Ductless climate control has been a groundbreaking development for Mitsubishi Electric, as they’ve provided a low-cost solution to homeowners that are both efficient and effective. The revolutionary zoning capabilities of a ductless system allow users to cut down on wasted energy as they control room-by-room temperatures. At Clay’s Climate Control, we proudly serve the Linwood, NJ, Cape May, and Atlantic Counties with zoned comfort solutions, courtesy of ductless heating and cooling systems. Below we share how exactly a Mitsubishi ductless heating and cooling system works and some common questions homeowners ask.
Are you thinking of installing a new ductless HVAC unit or upgrading your existing system? Before switching to a ductless heating and cooling system, it’s essential to understand how they work. Often referred to as mini split systems, these HVAC units are becoming increasingly popular in homes. Ductless split systems work like conventional air duct systems, but there are several primary differences.
A ductless heating and cooling system provides targeted heat or cold air for a single room. Individual units are located in each room or “zone” and are linked to an outdoor compressor. The indoor zone contains evaporator coils cooled with refrigerant instead of pushing and pulling air to a central indoor unit, like a traditional system. The air is cooled on its way to the compressor, then returned to the indoor unit, where it circulates the air throughout the room. The main difference between a mini-split system and conventional HVAC units is the absence of ductwork. These popular alternatives offer a much less intrusive installation, blend in better with the room, and are extremely energy efficient.
In addition to being the most energy-efficient heating and cooling system option for homeowners, a mini-split system is also cost-effective. While the average cost can vary based on size, type, and brand, many homeowners typically expect to pay anywhere from $1,500 to $15,000 for the system itself and an additional $1,000 to $10,000 for the installation and labor. The upfront cost might seem significant, but a ductless heating and cooling system can save you thousands on your monthly utility bills throughout the years.
Three primary factors determine the lifespan of your mini-split system: the equipment itself, maintenance, and using it efficiently. If you choose a high-quality system, don’t skip regular maintenance, and utilize its energy efficiency to its fullest potential, your units can last 10 to 15 years, with some systems running reliably for 20 years or longer.
