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 on the lookout for an efficient way to increase your home’s comfort, a mini-split system could be the answer. 

What’s a mini-split system? 
A mini-split system is a ductless form of heating and cooling that is has its focus on specific rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more adaptable and energy efficient than common central air systems and are simpler to install since there is no ductwork required. They pump air straight to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have separate wireless electronic temperature control systems. 

Mini-split systems aren’t just one size, nor are they all made equally, or for the same size room. Similar to normal air conditioners, a mini-split system should be chosen to fit the space that it will be heating and cooling. Doing so can mean more efficient production for you, which could also lead to savings on your monthly energy expenses as well. They’re typically used for: 

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

Your local pros at Stevenson Service Experts are experienced in mini-split system calculations and will be able to provide you with choices based on the size of space that you’d like to heat and cool. 

A quick primer 
A mini-split system functions by employing a process that only produces the amount of hot or cold air needed to get to or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a correctly sized system is still important to get all of the efficiency benefits available. 

Mini-split system sizing 
When it comes to sizing a mini-split system, our experts recommends the top choice 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 running more often, meaning you’re wasting energy constantly. However, if your system is too large, you’ll likely be spending more on the system and carry the risk of having your mini-split system cycling on and off all the time.
