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 on the lookout for an efficient way to increase 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 focuses on individual rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more flexible and energy efficient than traditional central air systems and are easy to install since there is no ductwork involved. They pump air directly to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have separate 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, a mini-split system should be chosen to fit the space that it will be responsible for. Doing so means more efficient production for you, which might also translate to savings on your regular energy expenses as well. They’re normally used for: 

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

Your local experts at Stevenson Service Experts are knowledgeable in mini-split system calculations 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 utilizing a process that only generates the amount of hot or cold air that you need to get to or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a correctly sized system is still crucial to receive all of the efficiency benefits available. 

Mini-split system sizing 
When it comes to sizing a mini-split system, our experts recommends the best option for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to determine your needs and calculate the size of the room 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 over time. However, if your system is oversized, you’ll possibly be spending more on the system and have the risk of having your mini-split system flipping on and off all the time.
