Ductless AC installation cost in Fort Myers
- Size- The size of ductless AC units is measured by their BTU (British Thermal Units) output, or how much heat the AC unit can remove from your home in an hour. The "larger" the size of the unit (or higher the BTU output), the more expensive it will be.
- Efficiency- The efficiency level of a ductless AC system is determined by its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating. The higher the SEER rating (or more efficient the system), the more expensive it will be.
- Number of rooms you need cooled- Unlike a central AC system that cools your entire home via one indoor and one outdoor unit, a ductless AC system requires an indoor unit in every room you want cooled. The more rooms you need cooled, the higher the cost of installation will be.
- Home modifications- The cost of your installation can increase if the technician needs to make certain modifications to your home to successfully install a ductless AC system. For example, if your home is made of delicate material, like stucco, a carpenter may need to create a different type of hole to accommodate the refrigerant lines, which will increase the price. Another common modification is upgrading your home's electrical system. If you need to upgrade existing outlets or your electrical panel, it will increase the overall cost of your ductless AC installation.
Benefits of a Ductless AC
- Zoning control- With a ductless AC system, you can individually control the temperature of each room/area where a ductless AC is installed. Essentially, ductless ACs come with zoning, as opposed to central AC systems, where zoning could cost an additional $1,000+.
- Operational costs- Typically, ductless AC systems are cheaper to run than central AC systems because they are more efficient. Central AC systems can lose 20-30% of conditioned air to leaks, holes and poorly connected ducts. Because ductless AC systems don't have ducts, you aren't losing all that conditioned air, meaning you'll pay less to cool your home.
- Single-room cooling- Ductless AC systems are ideal for single-room cooling. For example, if you've recently added on to your home or you want to install cooling in a space that isn't connected to your central AC system, like a garage or Florida room, ductless cooling is a great option. Rather than paying to extend your central AC ductwork (which can be very expensive), you simply need to install a single ductless AC system.
How it works
How your 5-star ductless AC installation looks from start to finish:
Contact us online or by phone (888)-853-5143 to schedule a time that works for you. We know you're busy, so we work around your schedule. Your HVAC Specialist will call you 30 minutes BEFORE arriving to let you know they're on their way. You'll also get an email showing you the name and picture of the tech arriving.
Discuss comfort needs
Once your HVAC Specialist arrives, they'll ask about any cooling or comfort problems you've had and/or want corrected. We want our customers to be 100% satisfied—which is why we take the time to deeply understand your cooling needs before we provide any recommendations.
Your HVAC Specialist will then survey your home and calculate how many indoor ductless units you need (up to 4 indoor units can be matched with 1 outdoor unit), and what size each unit needs to be. We perform an extensive "cooling load" calculation to make sure our sizing measurements are 100% accurate.
