Ductless and Solar: Home Efficiency Heaven For Boise Idaho
Is it possible to use a Solar Powered Mini Split Heat Pump to super charge your Boise home comfort and save substantially? Yes… and Yes!
Ductless heating and cooling systems are growing in popularity throughout Boise, Idaho, and the entire Treasure Valley area.
Idaho is known for being one of the most Solar Friendly states, offering policies that help homeowners save money while increasing the efficiency of their home.
A Ductless Mini Spit Heat Pump, also known as Mini Split System, offers several benefits over traditional ducted systems, such as lower energy costs, improved indoor air quality, and installation flexibility. But what many people don’t know is that ductless systems are also a great match for solar power. In this blog post, we will explain why ductless and solar make such a great team and show you how you can take advantage of both technologies!
Why do ductless and solar go together?
Ductless heat pumps and solar panels are efficient and effective when used together because they use less energy to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home. Ductless systems have shorter start-up times, which conserves even more energy. Additionally, the air conditioning side of the ductless system is most beneficial during the summer months when solar panels are most effective due to the longer and sunnier days.
Just think, you’re pretty much using the same sun that is causing the heat gain inside the home to power the cooling of your home!
Ductless systems are often used in combination with other renewable energy sources, such as geothermal or wind power. This makes them an ideal candidate for solar power, which can be used to supplement these other sources.
How can you take advantage of ductless and solar synergy?
It’s all about synergy. The growing popularity of both ductless and the growing demand for solar provide a unique opportunity. When you unite these two technologies, you get a synergistic boost in your energy efficiency.
‘Synergy’ in a nutshell, means 1 + 1 = 3. Likewise, ductless + solar = So Much More!
Steps you can take to super charge your savings:
Consider a ductless mini-split system for your Boise, Idaho home. Mini splits are ductless systems that can be used to heat and cool specific areas of your home. This is a great option if you have an older home that does not have ductwork, when you want to update or upgrade your existing furnace or air conditioner, any time you have a home remodeling or home addition project, and when you want to expand your living space, as in converting a garage, attic, or basement into livable space.
Install ductless units in combination with solar panels. This will help offset the cost of the ductless system as well as increase your home’s energy efficiency. Those offsets can come in the form of rebates and/or tax credits for both solar and ductless systems, as well as an ongoing reduction in your home’s usage of electrical power.

Benefits of combing a ductless system with a solar energy system?
Homeowners who are looking to increase their energy efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint will find that ductless and solar systems working together can be a great solution. Solar power can help offset the cost of ductless systems, as well as provide additional energy savings. Ductless systems are a great way to improve your home’s comfort and indoor air quality, and when used in combination with solar power, can provide an even greater benefit to both your family and the environment.
If you’re considering ductless heating and cooling for your home, or are already using a ductless system, talk to a solar contractor about the possibility of adding solar panels to your home. You may be surprised at how much you can save!
Are there rebates and tax credits available for using solar panels with mini split heat pumps?
Absolutely! Rebates and tax credits on ductless and solar panel installations are in play. Until the end of 2022, homeowners that install solar and ductless heat pumps will receive a 26% credit towards their tax liability.
Starting in 2023, that number will change to 22%. Solar must be the main driver. For example, if you have solar installed and you add a $10,000 ductless system to your home, you would be eligible for a $2600 credit towards your tax liability!
How to start benefiting from this dynamic duo?
If you’re considering ductless heating and cooling for your home, or are already using a ductless system, find out about the possibility of adding solar panels to your home. You may be surprised at how much you can save! Using solar power but not ductless? Just reverse the process.
