What Size Mini-Split System do I Need?

July 21, 2017

Whether you have had a renovation to your home that seems to be a little hotter 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 is has its focus 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 as there is no ductwork involved. 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 one-size-fits-all, nor are they all produced equally, or for the same size room. Much like traditional air conditioners and furnaces, a mini-split system should be picked to fit the area that it will be in. Doing so could mean more efficient production for you, which might also translate to savings on your regular energy bills as well. They’re normally used for:

  • Hot and/or cold rooms
  • Additions/renovations
  • Enclosed patios
  • Homes with no room for ductwork
  • Large, multi-zone living spaces

Your local team at Calverley Service Experts are experienced in mini-split system measurements and can provide you with options based on the size of space that you’re looking to heat and cool.

A quick primer
A mini-split system works by using a process that only generates the amount of hot or cold air that you need to get to or maintain the temperature you have set. That being said, a correctly sized system is still crucial to get 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 top product 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 is too small will end up working more often, meaning you’re wasting energy all the time. However, if your system is too large, you’ll probably be spending more on the system and carry the risk of having your mini-split system turning on and off frequently.
