Ductless Air Conditioner Installation Costs

The price range for a ductless AC system installation varies depending on the size of your home, the number of units, and the type of ductless air conditioner you choose. 

On average, a ductless heating and cooling system costs around $3,500 for a single-zone ductless mini split system and over $7,000 for a multi-zone ductless mini split system.

It’s safe to assume a ductless AC system will cost between $2,000-$10,000. 

Here are some additional price estimates and unit details to consider:

Single-Zone Ductless Mini Split System

What to Expect During Your Ductless AC System Installation

Typically, installing a ductless mini-split system is a quick job. Assuming there are no complications, the average timespan for an installation job takes one to two days. 

The exact length of time for the installation depends on the unit, size of your system, and how many indoor units require mounting inside your home. 

While it is usually quick and painless, a ductless AC system installation is a substantial job. You will require a contractor to drill a hole in your wall during a mini-split system installation. 

When you work with licensed professionals, the job should be painless and flawless in execution.
