Average Costs to Install a Ductless Heat Pump in Victoria

Wondering about the cost of installing a Ductless Heat Pump in Victoria?


Let's delve into the details of the price breakdown for this innovative solution. The expense of a Ductless Heat Pump, also known as a Mini Split Heat Pump, depends on various factors such as the number of heating and cooling zones required.


In Victoria, where achieving ideal climate comfort is a priority, the price range for installing this efficient system typically falls between $4,000 and $6,000 for a single head. This cost encompasses not only the system itself but also the labor required for its installation. Moreover, there's potential for government rebates that can bring the starting price as low as $1,000 on certain multiple head systems. For those seeking a comprehensive and highly efficient heating and cooling solution that requires multiple indoor and outdoor units, for small or large homes, the cost could range from $9,500 at the lowest, to approximately 25000 at the upper range. Price ranges are based on a few primary factors, these include the number of interior mini split heads required, and whether one or multiple outdoor heatpump/compressors are needed. Depending on current federal, provincial, and municipal Government Rebates, your actual cost to you could be substantially lower.  At Bridgeman we are energy rebate experts so we can walk you through your options, provide and complete all of your rebate paper work at no charge.


Let's break down the average expenses for Ductless Heat Pump installation In Victoria:

When Bridgeman provides a quote, we customize it based on your BTU (British thermal units) requirements for effective heating and cooling. The size of the Ductless Heat Pump system is measured in BTUs, which corresponds directly to the space needing conditioning. A household often requires a 12,000 -18,000 BTU system to be suitable for heating and cooling around 500 square feet. Unlike central air systems that cool entire homes uniformly, a Ductless Heat Pump focuses on specific zones, so the total square footage isn't the primary factor. More zones, however, necessitate additional indoor head units.


On average, the comprehensive installation cost for a 12,000 BTU Ductless Heat Pump system is around $4,000. For smaller spaces, a 6,000 BTU system might cost between $450 and $1,600. Larger residences in Greater Victoria relying on Ductless Heat Pumps require more robust units. For instance, a 60,000 BTU system, capable of cooling 2,500 square feet, can cost between $3,500 and $10,000.


Number of Zones (unit heads)

Considering the number of zones is crucial. A basic Ductless Heat Pump system consists of an exterior condensing unit and an indoor head. To cool multiple rooms, additional heads must be installed, and this ofcourse can affect pricing. 


As a rule of thumb, allocate an extra $1,000 to $2,300 for each additional indoor unit installation. This figure includes material costs and recognizes added labor. Here's a rough breakdown of costs as you integrate more indoor heads:


One head: $4,500 to $8,500

Two heads: $6,500 to $11,100

Three heads: $8,500 to $13,400

Four heads: $10,500 to $15,700

Five heads: $12,500 to $18,000


Get up to $16,600 in rebates and grants on your heat pump system (with BC Gov Rebates, Federal Grant, and Local Municipal Top-Up)
