What Size Mini-Split System do I Need?
Whether you have an addition to your home that seems to be a little warmer than the rest of the house or you’re simply looking for an efficient way to increase your home’s comfort, a mini-split system may be the choice.
What’s a mini-split system?
A mini-split system is a ductless form of heating and cooling that is focused 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 required. 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 just one size, nor are they all created equally, or for the same size room. Much like traditional air conditioners, a mini-split system should be sized to fit the room that it will be heating and cooling. Doing so could mean more efficient production for you, which might also translate to savings on your monthly energy bills as well. They’re typically used for:
- Hot and/or cold rooms
- Enclosed patios
- Homes with no room for ductwork
- Large, multi-zone living spaces
Your local pros at Wesley Wood Service Experts are well-versed in mini-split system measurements and can provide you with options based on the size of space that you’d like to heat and cool.
A quick primer
A mini-split system works by using a process that only produces the amount of hot or cold air needed to reach or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a appropriately sized system is still crucial to reap all of the efficiency benefits available.
Mini-split system sizing
When it comes to measuring for a mini-split system, our team recommends the ideal choice for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to decide your needs and measure the size of the room the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that isn’t large enough will end up running more often, meaning you’re wasting energy constantly. However, if your system is too large, you’ll possibly be spending more on the system and run the risk of having your mini-split system cycling on and off constantly.
