Split ac versus in wall


Ok me and the wife were gonna get the split unit but it is a bit expensive (~2k) plus install for 24,000 btu. We had an in wall unit previously but it was so loud hence the reason for the quiet split unit. Well the split unit is a bit too pricey for us. Are there in-wall units that are quiet?thanks

Did you factor in the cost to run it?
My power bills went down about 50 % when I switched from window units and a gas heater to a mini split heat pump in the summer and winter.

THanks Joe!! We would be doing cooling only and looking at the electrical draw of a 24k btu split versus wall unit it looks to be about the same. Don't see how we would save 50% replacing one wall(cool only) with a split unit(cool only). I guess because you had gas heating as well and a few units you reached the 50% mark.
