What Size Mini-Split System Do I Need?

Whether you have an add on to your home that seems to be a little warmer than the rest of the house or you’re simply looking for an efficient way to boost your home’s comfort, a mini-split system might be the answer. 

What’s a mini-split system? 
A mini-split system is a ductless form of heating and cooling that focuses on distinct rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more adaptable and energy efficient than traditional central air systems and are easier to install because there is no ductwork required. They pump air directly to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have individual wireless electronic temperature control systems. 

Mini-split systems aren’t only one size, nor are they all created equally, or for the same size room. Similar to common air conditioners, a mini-split system should be picked to fit the area that it will be responsible for. Doing so could mean more efficient production for you, which might also lead to savings on your monthly energy bills as well. They’re usually used for: 

  • Hot and/or cold rooms 
  • Additions/renovations 
  • Enclosed patios 
  • Homes without room for ductwork 
  • Large, multi-zone living spaces 

Your local experts at Stevenson Service Experts are well-versed in mini-split system calculations and can provide you with specific products based on the size of space that you want to heat and cool. 

A quick primer 
A mini-split system operates by employing a process that only produces the amount of hot or cold air that you need to reach or maintain the temperature you have set. That being said, a correctly sized system is still crucial to reap all of the efficiency benefits offered. 

Mini-split system sizing 
When it comes to sizing a mini-split system, our pros recommends the top option for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to figure out your needs and get the size of the area the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that isn’t big enough will end up operating more often, meaning you’re wasting energy all the time. However, if your system is too large, you’ll likely be spending more on the system and have the risk of having your mini-split system turning on and off frequently.
