Any ductless air condition installation is going to demand a qualified installer. For this question, we will consider the costs of installing a ductless or “split” air conditioning system in a 1500 square foot home. The average price for the equipment and installation of a system sized appropriately for the cooling needs of a home of this size in Hawaii ranges $3500-$10,000. This would include the outdoor condensing unit and the air handlers as well as the necessary lines, but does not differentiate between single, double, triple or quad zone systems.

The costs given do not include such things as the addition of heating functions and lines, the removal of old equipment, and the managing of existing ductwork that is no longer required. These would vary from project to project, but must be taken into consideration when developing the budget.
Installers may increase costs if attic or basement space is very difficult to work in, or if special efforts must be made to get supply lines to the area of the rooms in which the air handlers will be mounted. The air handlers are mounted high on a wall or in the ceiling per the choice of the homeowner, and there are no costs differences in equipment selection.
