Ductless heating and A/C is much cheaper to run.

My spouse and I had been discussing installing heat pumps in our house.

There were a lot of pros, however also some cons.

The greatest con was that the heat pumps last for several to fifteen years… Regular air conditioning lasts for 15 years or more, and the oil furnace would last 20 years or more if taken care of. The cost of the heat pump would be as much as the typical heating and A/C system, however my associate and I would have less work and no air duct to contend with. The pros were several in our eyes. My nice friend and I would no longer need to pay for fuel for the oil furnace. The air duct would be gone, and so would the dust that affects our dust sensitivities all year round. The heat pump, ductless heating and A/C, or mini-split system, has one unit instead of two. There is a unit outside, and one inside the house. The heating and A/C is all in one unit, and it is energy efficient, along with being heating and A/C efficient. My nice friend and I talked to our child who had a mini-split system installed in her condo two years ago. She told us that even during the hottest area of summer, their electric bill only went up by $30 a month. Their winter season heating bills didn’t really average nearly as much as what they paid for one tank of oil. They also had a SEER of 26 for an efficiency rating. With so few cons, and so several pros, we’ll have the ductless heating and A/C system installed when Springtime has finally arrived, and my associate and I aren’t distraught about needing the oil furnace or air conditioning unit.
