Ductless Air Conditioner Cost Ottawa
One of the best benefits of a ductless air conditioner is the flexibility of the installations and the wide range in terms of efficiency, sizing and brands. This makes pinpointing the cost on a ductless split air conditioner difficult. In fact, a ductless air conditioner that utilizes more than one indoor distribution head is actually a heat pump that provides both heating and cooling to the area.
As you can see ductless air conditioner prices require many parameters to give an accurate cost. We tend to see that clients that are looking for cooling only (not heating ability) solutions often spend between $2500-$4000 for their single zone cooling system. Clients looking to cool multiple areas average costs between $3500-$7000. Those projects with 3-4 indoor zones connected to very high end outdoor units may spend $8500-$20,000 depending on the parameters. Note that these are the current prices in 2021 and are subject to change over time.
Many of our Ductless AC Systems are eligible for the Greener Home Grant! This can often pay for an entire system for qualifying household.

Ductless Heating Questions and Answers
Ductless air conditioners are some of the quietest heating and cooling units on the market! The outdoor units are less than half the sound of a standard central AC and tend to run in the 45-60 decibel range. The indoor units are even quieter, with many running in the 19-22 decibel range. These are truly whisper quiet air conditioners. Please be aware that if your unit has a pump installed on it, the pump may run louder than the actual ductless head.
Ductless mini splits are so unique in the fact that they can have anywhere from 1-8 indoor heads. They come in many different levels of quality and numerous different sizes which makes average pricing difficult but below are some averages in the Ottawa area in 2024.
- Single Zone: $3500-$6,000
- Two Zone: $5000-$10,000
- Three Zone: $8000-$14,000
Ductless air conditioners offer many advantages over a standard central air conditioner. Ductless units are almost always much more efficient and are always much quieter. The biggest advantage to mini splits, is that they do not require ductwork. This allows you to completely zone your house. If you want to keep the master bedroom at 18 degrees and the living room at 22, you can do that!
In 2024, most units we install in the mini split category provide both heating and cooling. That being said, there are some very affordable single zone cooling only options to help deal with that pesky hot bedroom. As soon as you install more than one head on an outdoor unit, the entire system becomes a heating/cooling unit just based on the science of making multiple heads operate.
Like any mechanical system with moving parts, ductless mini splits do require maintenance. These units have factory installed filters that should be cleaned frequently, they are washable and should be removed to clean once every 1-3 months depending on the usage and dust in the house. Some manufacturers actually recommend every 2 weeks!
Furthermore, you should have an annual maintenance performed by a professional HVAC technician from AirZone HVAC Services. This ensures that the drainage is working properly, refrigerant levels are good and you are getting the most efficiency out of your unit.
Unfortunately, not enough maintenance occurs on most ductless mini splits. Due to this we receive a lot of calls about leaking mini splits. There are a few reasons you may see water leaking from your indoor head. If the filters are not cleaned it may cause airflow problems that result in a frozen indoor coil. When the frozen coil melts, it will produce water leaks. Also the drain line on these units frequently gets plugged and can cause water backing up. As a homeowner, cleaning the filters frequently and booking an annual maintenance is the best thing you can do for your system!
