Benefits of ductless air conditioners

If you’re looking to install a new AC system, ductless mini-splits provide the following benefits:

Versatility. Have a new addition in need of air conditioning? A ductless mini-split is the perfect solution. You’ll enjoy cooling output beyond the capacity of a window or portable unit.

Ease of installation. Many older homes in Albuquerque weren’t built with ductwork, which makes forced air systems a challenge to install. The good news is that ductless mini-splits can be installed without the need for any air ducts. Instead, you’ll have wall-mounted air handlers that disperse conditioned air in rooms of your choice.

Precision temperature control. With individual cooling zones, ductless ACs allow you to control the temperature of specific rooms or areas of your home. So if someone in your home likes it super cold, while others prefer a higher thermostat setting, everyone in your household can remain comfortable.

Energy efficiency. Because you can cool rooms or spaces based on when you use them, you won’t have to pay to cool your entire home. Moreover, ductless ACs consume less power than refrigerated air conditioners, which is great for saving energy.

Ductless AC Cost Factors:

The cost of a ductless AC installation depends on a couple of key factors:

System size. The larger your home, the more cooling zones you will need, and the more your ductless AC system will cost to install. If your home needs more than 4 cooling zones, a ductless air conditioner generally won’t be cost-effective. During your free estimate, TLC’s technicians will review your home’s layout and then share their honest opinion as to what type of AC would work best for your cooling needs and budget.

Energy-efficiency. Like most ACs, ductless mini-splits come with a “SEER rating,” which measures how efficiently the model can cool your home. Units with a higher SEER rating tend to cost more, but they can also reduce your energy bills long-term.

Customer story in Albuquerque

TLC's comprehensive installation leaves this homeowner glad they hired us

Problem: When Jeff D’s air conditioner was nearing its end, he decided to update it with a high-efficiency ductless heat pump. He contacted TLC’s friendly customer service team and we scheduled a free in-home estimate to review all of Jeff’s options. He was also looking to replace his gas water heater with an electric model, so we planned to review his water heater options during the same visit.

Solution: Within just two days, TLC had all work completed. From the upfront estimate to the final inspection, we provided clear pricing, thorough communication, and seamless coordination of both his new ductless heat pump and electric water heater installations. Moreover, we ensured all work was up to code, including a new electrical circuit to safely power the ductless heat pump’s air handlers. Jeff is thrilled with the results and couldn’t be happier that he chose TLC to get the job done right.


““We had TLC replace our old air conditioner with a heat pump and our gas water heater with an electric model. The work they did was excellent, taking two days to complete the project. They brought everything up to code and installed an additional electrical circuit to power the new air handler, using an existing conduit through which to run the line, thus minimizing the impacts to the walls. They also cleaned up the garage and installed a new thermostat. TLC did an excellent job and we are very pleased with their work.””
