Does a mini split AC use a lot of electricity?

Typically, a mini split AC does not use a lot of electricity. Ductless air conditioners can use anywhere from 0.30 to 4+ kWh (kiloWatt-hours) of power per hour. That said, the amount of electricity your ductless mini split air conditioner will use depends on several factors, including:

 

  • Outdoor temperature vs. desired indoor temperature – the greater the difference between the outdoor and desired indoor temperature, the more electricity your mini split AC will use. 
  • BTU rating (i.e. the size of the unit) – generally, the higher the BTU, the more energy the unit will consume. 
  • Unit efficiency – the higher the efficiency rating, the less electricity the ductless mini split air conditioner will use. 
  • Zone size – the larger the area, the more electricity your system will need to cool it. 
  • Insulation in your home – if your home has good insulation, your mini split AC will require less energy to reach and maintain your desired indoor temperature. 
  • Usage – the more you use the system, the more energy it will consume.
