Save Money and Stay Warm This Winter With a Ductless Heat Pump

November 10, 2015

Of course by now, we all know the statistics. Ductless Heat Pumps have been shown time and again to be energy efficient. They use much less energy to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home, saving you money on your utility bills and keeping cash in your wallet. Studies show most using electric heat can expect to save 25% to 50% off of their heating bills.

When we install a new system for someone, we are aware of these savings and so are they. In fact, the energy savings is typically the main reason someone begins to consider a ductless system in the first place.

However, we often don’t get to hear the real results numbers that our customers realize over the course of the heating season.

Occasionally we will have someone call or email who is so thrilled with the comfort and savings that they are getting from their system that they just have to share. We love to get those stories and this is one we just have to pass on.

Our customer, Sandy, has a 1000 sq ft home, that is well insulated and had electric baseboard heat. In August of 2013, we installed a Ductless System in her home, specifically a Fujitsu 15 RLS2. Sandy has been using this system exclusively to heat and cool her home since that time.

Sandy pays her power bill on a average basis, the same amount each month, year round. At the time we installed her new Fujitsu Ductless Heat Pump, she was paying $195.00 a month. Now, after the installation of her new system, she is paying less.

The utility company has adjusted the amount of her payment, down from $195 per month to $113, saving her $82.00 per month.

This monthly savings is significant and has been enough to make Sandy happy that she chose to go Ductless.

She reports feeling more comfortable in her home and is also happy with the ability to both heat and cool her home with the same system, without increasing any energy costs for using the AC.

But, there is more. Sandy was happy to let us know that she has run the numbers and determined that when she factors in her monthly utility savings and the money she saved at installation by taking advantage of her local utility rebate, that her new Ductless System will pay for itself in less than three years!

We invite you to run the numbers on your system and see what you get. Math does not lie.

And if you have a great Ductless Heat Pump savings story, call or send us an email and share. You can also post it on our facebook page. We love to hear these happy endings!
