(NAPSI)—According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 50 percent of an average U.S. home’s energy bill can be linked directly to cooling and heating costs, which amounts to approximately $1,100 per year, depending on location.

Installing an energy-efficient cooling and heating system can be one of the most significant upgrades a homeowner can make to save on these utility costs.

A new development in home cooling and heating systems offers that chance. This new line of ductless cooling and heating systems is described as the most energy efficient available.

The Hyper-Heating INVERTER™ (H2i®) MSZ-FH Models from Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division (Mitsubishi Electric) have the highest efficiency ratings for cooling and heating systems at 30.5 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). H2i MSZ-FH Models are the best way to cool and heat a home, using up to 40 percent less energy per room than a traditional central air system.

No Ductwork

One characteristic of the system is that it operates without ductwork. Cooling and heating systems without ductwork have been commonplace in homes throughout Europe and Asia for decades. A ductless system offers greater energy efficiency than a traditional central cooling and heating system as well as lower operating costs.

“More homeowners now realize how much money can be saved by investing in energy-efficient cooling and heating. Because of this trend, energy efficiency is no longer a fringe product benefit. Homeowners expect it from the products we choose for our homes, and we should,” says Mike Smith, Mitsubishi Electric.

Additional Benefits

Other benefits of installing the system include:

• The ability to control each room independently: Rooms (or zones) can be cooled or heated to a specific temperature and turned off when unoccupied. “We’ve been trained from childhood to turn off the lights when we leave a room to save energy; ductless zoning systems allow us to do this with cooling and heating as well,” says Smith.

• Minimal sound disruption: The system provides the quietest possible operation for both indoor and outdoor environments.

• A cleaner environment: The system’s triple-action filtration system is designed to reduce allergens, viruses and bacteria circulating in the home’s air.

• Green certifications and tax credits: The H2i MSZ-FH Models are ENERGY STAR® qualified. Plus, the systems may also be eligible for local, state and federal tax credits or utility rebates in many states. This can help homeowners gain a return on their investment.
