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 on the lookout for an efficient way to improve your home’s comfort, a mini-split system may be the answer.

What’s a mini-split system?
A mini-split system is a ductless form of heating and cooling that is focused on specific 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 easier to install as there is no ductwork needed. They pump air right to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have individual wireless electronic temperature control systems.

Mini-split systems aren’t only one size, nor are they all made equally, or for the same size room. Comparable to common air conditioners and furnaces, a mini-split system should be picked to fit the space that it will be heating and cooling. Doing so could mean more efficient production for you, which might also translate to savings on your regular energy expenses as well. They’re typically used for:

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

Your local team at Atmostemp Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning are well-versed in mini-split system sizing and can provide you with specific products 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 generates the amount of hot or cold air needed to get to or maintain the temperature you have set. That being said, a properly sized system is still important to get all of the efficiency benefits possible.

Mini-split system sizing
When it comes to measuring for a mini-split system, our pros recommends the best option 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 isn’t large enough will end up working more often, meaning you’re wasting energy over 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 constantly.
