You make many home improvement decisions with your wallet as your guide. It hasn’t steered you wrong so far, and you plan on using it as a litmus test to determine your next cooling solution.
You’re torn between central air conditioning and a ductless mini split system. Which is the least costly of the two?
A ductless mini split is far cheaper to run than central air.
Let’s explain why!
The difference comes down to how each cooling system operates.
A central air conditioner features an outdoor unit and a series of ducts that connect it. The ducts are not seamless, so the air that travels through them exits before reaching your living room. The expert consensus is that air loss is anywhere from 25 to 30 percent.
A ductless mini split has an outdoor compressor and at least one indoor air-handling unit attached

Here at PowerSave AC, we’re big proponents of ductless mini split systems. However, we recognize the importance of evaluating both sides of the equation, so we’ll discuss the downsides of a ductless mini split system.
Ductless mini splits aren’t the most inexpensive heating and cooling solution, especially compared with the initial cost of a central air conditioner or furnace.
While you might pay a lot out of the gate for a ductless mini split system, the amount of money you’ll recoup month after month and year after year more than makes up for that initial cost.
You can’t compare mini splits and traditional HVAC in longevity. The more years a furnace or central AC racks up, the less efficient it becomes. A mini split remains efficient for years, even a decade in some cases.
In 10 or 15 years, you could save hundreds of thousands of dollars.
