Ductless A/C Installation & Repair Services in Boston

Boston recorded its hottest July on record in 2019. If you notice Boston summers getting even more hot and humid, you’re probably very invested in staying cool!

You shouldn’t have to swelter through a heat wave when you could install ductless A/C. Ductless, or min-split systems, are a great option for older homes. With ductless A/C, you don’t need to go through an extensive construction period to install an entire duct network. An indoor unit is simply mounted on the wall for your desired cooling zones.

Ductless A/C units are quiet, efficient and versatile—a fantastic solution to keep you reliably cool. If you’re looking for energy efficiency, low maintenance and the ability to control temperature and air flow in different areas of your home, consider going ductless.

If it’s time to replace, repair or install a new ductless A/C system in your home, Boston Standard Company is here to answer all your questions and get you set up in no time. We’re The Company You Count On—before, during and after every heat wave.

Ductless vs. Central Air Installation

Why Homeowners in Boston Fall in Love with Ductless A/C

Ductless A/C is becoming more popular as more people learn about this alternative to a central air system. Ductless, or mini-split systems, are generally considered more efficient, which can keep your home cooler and your energy bills lower. Ductless air conditioning and heating is an especially great option for homes without existing ductwork because the costs to install a ductless system will generally be much less expensive and less complicated than refitting an entire building for central air.

Ductless systems generally require less A/C maintenance and produce a higher air quality than central air systems, which may accumulate pest droppings, dust, debris, pollen or mold in the ducts and need regular cleaning. Ductless systems also offer more customizable control, allowing you to choose which zones to heat or cool, depending on use or preference.

Not only will a ductless A/C system cool you during the summer months; ductless mini-splits can also warm your house in the winter without the need to install any ductwork at all!

I recently had a two zone ductless AC system installed and was very satisfied with the results. The initial consultation was very thorough and communication throughout was great. The installation went really well; the crew was professional and worked hard to meet my needs.

Samy and Jean installed our ductless system and did excellent work. I appreciated that they and Corey who came out and did our bid were very willing to discuss different installation options. The paperwork from the office and bank was very smooth. In discussion with Samy, we came up with an installation that minimized the impact on the outside of the house which I’m happy about. We’re looking forward to using the system.

Answers to Common Ductless A/C Installation and Repair Questions

Q: How much does it cost to install a ductless air conditioner?

A general guideline for cost is around $2,000-$6,000 per indoor unit. Certain economics of scale may affect this pricing guideline. Other factors that could affect price include ductless system type, zoning set up, and particulars of the location.

Q: Are ductless A/C units worth the investment?

Ductless systems would be an especially good option for homes that do not already have duct systems. They are generally more energy-efficient and need fewer repairs, so that could save money in the long run. Adding an A/C system to a home could increase the value of the home. It’s also a benefit to be able to customize and control airflow in each individual zone, rather than heating or cooling the entire home as with a central air system.

Q: How long do ductless systems last?

With proper A/C maintenance, a high-quality ductless A/C mini-split system can last twenty years. This is a longer expected lifespan than other A/C options, which may be expected to last around 10-15 years.
