With the above said, you are probably wondering how much you’ll have to pay for a ductless AC system in New Jersey; Specifically the areas of Monmouth County and Ocean County.
The experience and familiarity of HVAC systems that the contractor has will play a major role in installation costs. It’s important to note that not all HVAC contractors in NJ have a lot of experience with installing and maintaining ductless systems.
Mini-split technology first arrived on the market in the 70s, but they were not popular in their early years. At least that was the case in many places other than Japan. On that note, ductless accounts for 90% of HVAC systems sold in Japan and more than 70% across Europe.
In America, ductless installations were not common because people were not familiar with the technology and they didn’t know much about the systems. However, homeowners, utility companies and even government agencies started to take notice once it became known how much energy one could save by going ductless. This is one of the reasons ductless is becoming one of the most popular segments in the HVAC industry in America, especially in New Jersey.

Fujitsu Halcyon™ Mini-Split Ductless System: The Cost
A number of factors play a role in the cost of installing a ductless system. These factors include the size and type of the unit, the zones being conditioned, and how difficult it is to install it. Other factors include the configuration of your system and the capacity of your electrical panel.
Ductless systems are flexible and there are various ways to install them. Your installation price for a ductless system can easily range from the low end to the high end based on your system’s configuration.
- Unit size
- Type of unit
- Number of zones
- Degree of difficulty of the installation
- Capacity of the existing electrical panel
- System configuration
Regardless of installation, there will be three basic parts involved. Those parts are:
At Least One Indoor Wall Unit (Evaporator/Air Handler)
An Outdoor Condenser
And The Wiring, Line Sets And A Drain That Connect The Indoor And Outdoor Unit Together
Cost Of Single Zone Ductless Installs
The most basic type of installation is single zone. For this type of installation, you are looking at paying around $3,500 to $5,000. This layout is ideal for specific situations such as when you want to cool off the sun room, a home addition, a problem room or a stand alone building such as a pool house. A single zone ductless system is also good for areas such as a single room, attic, garage or if you have a small home.
Cost Of Multi-Zone Ductless Installs
Homeowners may need multiple units. Some homes are fine with just having one ductless unit. It really depends on the needs of the homeowner. The layout of their home that determines how many units they need to have installed. If you want a multi-zone system that comes with two evaporator units, then you’re looking at between $7,000-$10,000, However, if you want a complex system that has four zones, then you can expect to pay between $14,000 to $17,000.
One of the best things about ductless systems is you can always add an indoor units at some point in the future. If you do expect to expand in the future, then contact us and we will accommodate future zones from one outdoor condenser. This will allow you to add more zones when your budget allows it.
Ductless systems may seem pricey at first glance, but that’s not the case. The amount you can save in energy will make up for your initial investment.
Ductless Heating/AC Vs. Central Heating & AC
When compared to central systems, ductless heating and cooling systems result in far more energy savings. Ducted systems result in lost energy. This is not the case with ductless systems. Systems that have duct work lose an average of 30% of energy consumption. That is a lot and it certainly adds up over a period of time.
Systems that require ductwork are far more expensive than ductless systems. This is especially true when it comes to long term maintenance. Also, you can save energy by turning off different zones based on your usage. Finally, there are rebate programs and payment plans you can take advantage of. Doing so can help you save money on getting a ductless system.
