I think that a mini split system is the way to go. They are much less expensive, and they are nearly as efficient.
There are a lot of options. We'd ideally like to do what your brother did. $30k with a 30% tax credit and up to $12k rebate from MACEC would be doable. Can you share any specifics? Equipment, installer, etc
I like the idea of mini splits too, haven't delved into them deeply yet, but I don't think they qualify for the tax credit, being air sourced. Still, worth a look.
