Ductless mini-split heat pumps have a lot of benefits for Massachusetts residents. With a ductless mini-split system, you can get energy efficient heating and cooling from just one unit, saving you money on your energy bills and making your home more comfortable. 

But upgrading your HVAC system can be an expensive project, and for many homeowners and landlords, cost is a top priority when it comes to mini-split heat pump installation. Today, we’re going to talk about how much mini-splits cost and how you can save on mini-split installation with Mass Save® heat pump rebates.

How Much Does a Mini-Split Heat Pump Cost?

Like most appliances, the cost of a mini-split heat pump can vary depending on a variety of factors, including: 

  • Brand or manufacturer 
  • BTU capacity (units with a higher BTU can heat/cool a larger space)
  • Energy efficiency 
  • Single or multi-zone capability 
  • Mounting type (wall, ceiling, or floor)
  • Warranty 

There are several options on the market and with Mass Save rebates, you’re sure to find a mini-split that fits your budget.

How Much Does Mini-Split Installation Cost?

The purchase price isn’t the only variable to consider when installing a mini-split. You also have to think about installation costs. It may be tempting to install your mini-split system yourself in order to save a few bucks, but this isn’t usually a wise decision. Without a professional installation, you could end up with a system that doesn’t operate as efficiently or effectively as it should. An experienced mini-split installer will be able to ensure proper sizing, placement, and connection between the outdoor air condenser and the indoor air handler or handlers. 

Because there are so many factors at play, there is a wide range of heat pump installation costs. Price points are generally comparable to furnace, boiler, and central AC replacement costs, and there are ways to save on heat pump installation costs with Mass Save heating and cooling rebates. 

Are Mini-Splits Worth the Cost?

Mini split heat pumps are absolutely worth the cost, especially with rebates from Mass Save sponsors. The benefits of a mini-split heat pump include: 

  • Having a single unit for both heating and cooling 
  • Saving on energy use thanks to highly energy efficient operation 
  • Targeting specific areas in your home, like a bonus room or finished basement 
  • Controlling each indoor unit separately for zoned heating and cooling
