What Size Mini-Split System Do I Need?

Whether you have an addition to your home that seems to be a little warmer than the rest of the house or you’re simply searching for an efficient way to improve your home’s comfort, a mini-split system may be the way to go.

What’s a mini-split system?
A mini-split system is a ductless form of heating and cooling that focuses on individual rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more flexible and energy efficient than common central air systems and are easier to install because there is no ductwork needed. They pump air right 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 created equally, or for the same size room. Comparable to normal air conditioners, a mini-split system should be chosen to fit the space that it will be heating and cooling. Doing so means more efficient production for you, which could also translate to savings on your regular energy expenses 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 team at Stevenson Service Experts are knowledgeable in mini-split system measurements and are able to provide you with choices based on the size of space that you’re looking to heat and cool.

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

Mini-split system sizing
When it comes to determining size for a mini-split system, our pros recommends the ideal option for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to determine your needs and get the size of the space 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 constantly. However, if your system is too big, you’ll possibly be spending more on the system and have the risk of having your mini-split system flipping on and off constantly.

So, what does Stevenson Service Experts do to help you select the right size mini-split system?
