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 searching for an efficient way to increase your home’s comfort, a mini-split system could 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 normal 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 their own wireless electronic temperature control systems. 

Mini-split systems aren’t one-size-fits-all, nor are they all made equally, or for the same size room. Much like 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 might also lead to savings on your monthly energy bills as well. They’re normally used for: 

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

Your local pros 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 operates by employing a process that only generates the amount of hot or cold air that you need to reach or maintain the temperature you choose. That being said, a appropriately 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 team recommends the top option for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to decide your needs and calculate the size of the area the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that is too small will end up running more often, meaning you’re wasting energy all the time. However, if your system is too big, you’ll likely be spending more on the system and have the risk of having your mini-split system flipping on and off all the time. 

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

Among other things, our team of professionals consider: 

  • Room size (length, width, height) 
  • Age of your home 
  • Insulation levels 
  • Columbus weather patterns 
  • Type and number of windows
