Save Money with the Most Efficient Home Heating and Cooling System
The more energy efficient your new HVAC system is, the higher your total heating and cooling savings for your home will be.
If you’re currently heating your house with electric resistance baseboards, you could save as much as 60% on your heating bills by switching to mini-splits! And if you’re using individual window AC units in the summer to keep cool, mini-splits can save you another 30% on your cooling costs. Over the course of the year, the average homeowner can save hundreds of dollars when they make the switch.
How Do Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pump systems work similarly to air conditioners, in that they don’t “create” cold air but cool your home by removing heat from your indoor air. But unlike an AC unit, heat pumps also have a heating mode, where heat is taken from outdoor air (even cold air contains some heat) and used to warm the air in your home in the winter.
Ductless heat pumps, also called ductless mini-splits or mini-split heat pumps, have an outdoor unit that connects to indoor air handlers, called cassettes. These cassettes are installed directly in the rooms or areas of your home you’re looking to keep comfortable—as the name suggests, there’s no ductwork involved.
Different Ways to Use Ductless Mini-Splits
1. If you have existing heating and cooling connected to central ductwork, but there’s a room or area of your home where ductwork doesn’t reach (like an addition, a converted bonus room or FROG over your garage, a three-season room, or the garage itself), you can install individual mini-split cassettes that act as supplemental heating and cooling and run alongside your main HVAC system.
2. Multiple mini-split cassettes can also be installed throughout your Suffolk or Nassau County home, completely replacing your existing system. This can be a great upgrade option for homes that don’t already have central ductwork.

Ducted Heat Pumps vs. Ductless Mini-Splits: What’s the Difference?
Ducted heat pumps and mini-splits both take advantage of the same electric technology, but are set up differently.
Ducted heat pumps connect directly to a home’s central ductwork system, and replace your entire home heating and cooling system.
Ductless mini-splits are also heat pumps, but don’t require ductwork. Mini-splits can be installed throughout a home, creating different temperature “zones.” You can customize your indoor comfort with different comfort settings in different rooms, and save energy by turning off cassettes in rooms that aren’t in use.
