Cost of a Custom Mitsubishi HVAC System
The cost of a custom Mitsubishi HVAC system will vary depending on the size and complexity of your home, as well as the specific features and options you choose. Mitsubishi mini split air conditioners are one of the most popular choices for homeowners looking to have a system that is cost-effective, quiet and energy efficient. Although they may be slightly more expensive than some other types of heating and cooling systems, they are less expensive to operate on an annual basis.
Summary of a Successful HVAC Installation
“This customer was looking to transition from using natural gas, to an all electric high efficiency heat pump from Mitsubishi. She was very energy and environmentally conscience, so we wanted to make sure that we designed a system that would not only help her save energy and not use fossil fuels to heat, but also create better comfort than her original system provided. We were able to accomplish just that! She also has someone living in the bonus room above the garage, and it was never comfortable up there. It is always hard to get to completely separate areas of the home, on different levels with different heat and cooling needs comfortable! We were able to solve it though!
Upstairs we installed a Mitsubishi one-way ceiling cassette (see photos), that has its own controller and fan settings.
For the downstairs, we replaced the old gas furnace in the garage with a Mitsubishi SVZ Air handler and connected it to the ductwork. It of course has it’s own controller, just for the downstairs. Then we connected both the air handler and the ceiling cassette to the same outdoor heat pump unit!
Now, with the heat pump unit we don’t need to create heat in winter time, but instead we just MOVE the heat from outside (all the way down to -13F) into the home! This is much more efficient and energy conscious than a natural gas furnace! Not to mention she now has a custom zoning system and high efficiency air conditioning also built in!”

Homeowner’s Google Review
“On-time, courteous and respectful, attentive to details, did excellent work, cleaned up completely when done. If I could give them six stars I would!
When my old gas heating system developed a crack in the heat exchanger, I got six bids for a new all-electric, cold-climate heat pump system to take advantage of my solar credits. Peppy provided by far the most efficient and effective system bid for the cost, and were honest and responsive, from the office folks to the installers. I’ve recommended them to everyone I know who has asked for an HVAC bid.”
