What Is a Mini-Split HVAC System?
A mini-split is an HVAC solution that allows property owners to control interior temperatures without having to install traditional ducts. While mini-splits feature interior evaporators and exterior condensers like any HVAC setup, they boast fewer components than central AC systems. The flexible nature of mini-splits allow them to deliver superior performance in a variety of scenarios.
A Few Key Benefits of Mini-Splits
One of the main selling points of mini-split AC systems is their energy efficiency. Mini-splits can slash HVAC-related utility bills in half while delivering the same performance as traditional AC systems. Furthermore, they can be installed in a very short period of time. Lastly, mini-splits can be deployed in spaces where ducts are out of the question.
Common Types of Mini-Split Hardware
There are essentially two kinds of mini-splits: those that cool air and those that double as heat pumps. As you can imagine, an exterior mini-split condenser that both cools and heats will be more expensive. The interior evaporators or “heads” that actually deliver or remove heat come in wall, floor and ceiling cassette formats.
Heating and Cooling Capacities
The cooling or heating power of a typical mini-split AC system is rated in Britih Thermal Units or BTUs. As a point of reference, 1 ton worth of cooling power in a traditional AC system is equal to 12,000 BTUs. If you want to cool a single room, 6,000 BTUs or so should do the trick.
Primary Factors That Impact Mini-Split AC System Costs
The number of evaporator heads that you’ll need to install will be the most important determinant of the final price for a mini-split system. The distance from each evaporator head to the outdoor condenser unit is another major consideration. Additional components like condensate drain line pumps will also kick up the final sticker price.
Price Ranges for Mini-Split Installations
Generally speaking, a mini-split AC system designed to cool a single room or collection of rooms will cost anywhere from $3,500 to $6,000. If you want to provide AC to two zones, the cost can run upwards of $8,000 or more. A whole-house mini-split system that both heats and cools will probably start around $9,000.
