How Efficient Are Heat Pumps vs. Oil or Gas Heat?

Could you be saving more energy during the winter?

Talk to your local heat pump expert and find out!


Here’s a story that may sound familiar: You get a hefty fuel oil delivery bill in the mail. You think, “Didn’t I just have the oil for my heating system topped off?” Another few weeks pass, and yet another oil delivery bill shows up in the mail. You begin to hope that spring comes early so you can finally get some relief from these high heating bills!

Many homeowners in the North Shore area and southern New Hampshire face this battle every year. Here’s the good news: with ductless heat pumps by Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating, you could finally put an end to paying hundreds of dollars in heating fuel costs every winter.

Why Ductless Heat Pumps Are So Efficient

Ductless heat pumps or mini split heat pumps, are an extremely energy efficient way to heat your home — especially if you choose Mitsubishi Electric heat pumps. But do you know why? Here are a few efficiency features that give ductless heat pumps an edge over oil and natural gas based heating systems.

Heat pump technology

Ductless heat pumps are a special kind of system made up of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units, installed directly in the rooms they heat. Instead of burning a fuel like oil or natural gas to create heat, these systems absorb low-temperature outdoor heat and move it indoors. This process is extremely efficient because it makes use of already existing heat.

Targeted heating

You don’t use one light switch to control all of the lights in your home; why should your heating system work in this way? With Mitsubishi Electric ductless heat pumps, you can create zones in your home and set them to different temperatures depending on your needs — so you can stop turning up the heat just to keep that one room comfortable!

No ductwork

If your home is heated using a furnace, you run the risk of wasting valuable energy through air leaks in ductwork. In fact, according to the Department of Energy, leaky ductwork can drive heating and cooling costs up by hundreds of dollars every year. Ductless heat pumps are just that — ductless — which eliminates any potential ductwork-related inefficiencies.

Should You Switch from Oil or Gas to Heat Pumps?

If you see high fuel oil delivery bills every year, want to reduce your reliance on natural gas, or are looking for a smart heating solution to supplement your existing heating system, heat pumps by Mitsubishi Electric may very well be the way to go. Depending on your needs, you may choose to install one indoor unit in a single uncomfortable room, or multiple indoor units throughout your home as a replacement to your existing system. Plus, heat pump installation is simple when you choose an experienced mini split expert!
