What Size Mini-Split System Do I Need?

Whether you have had a renovation 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 boost your home’s comfort, a mini-split system could be the way to go. 

What’s a mini-split system? 
A mini-split system is a ductless form of heating and cooling that is has its focus on distinct rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more adaptable and energy efficient than normal central air systems and are simpler to install as there is no ductwork required. 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. Much like common air conditioners, a mini-split system should be chosen to fit the room that it will be responsible for. Doing so could mean more efficient production for you, which might also mean 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 experienced in mini-split system measurements and will be 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 works by employing a process that only generates the amount of hot or cold air needed to reach or maintain the temperature you choose. That being said, a appropriately sized system is still crucial to reap all of the efficiency benefits possible. 

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 space 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 over time. However, if your system is oversized, you’ll probably be spending more on the system and run the risk of having your mini-split system cycling on and off constantly.
