What Size Mini-Split System do I Need?

July 21, 2017

Whether you have an addition to your home that seems to be a little hotter 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 might be the choice.

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 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 their own 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 normal 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 monthly energy expenses as well. They’re typically used for:

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

Your local experts at Calverley Service Experts are experienced in mini-split system measurements and can provide you with choices based on the size of space that you want to heat and cool.

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

A mini-split system that isn’t big enough will end up working 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 turning on and off constantly.
