Mitsubishi Mini-Split Systems: Costs, Top Units, Pros & Cons, ROI

Mitsubishi mini split systems are available in single-zone and multizone configurations of up to 8 zones.

In quality and performance, Mitsubishi mini split heat pumps and air conditioners are considered good to premium, comparable to Fujitsu, LG, and Daikin.

The Mitsubishi Hyper-heating H2i and H2i Plus options provide full-capacity heating in subzero temperatures, ideal for northern climates.

Mitsubishi mini split cost begins at around $4,900 for a small single zone system installed. Common systems for 2-4 zones run $7,500 to $11,000 installed. The largest Mitsubishi ductless systems exceed $25,000 when professionally installed.

*And yes, all Mitsubishi systems must be installed by a pro because they need a refrigerant charge, something only a certified installer can do by law.
