What Size Mini-Split System Do I Need?

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 looking for an efficient way to increase your home’s comfort, a mini-split system may be the way to go.

What’s a mini-split system?
A mini-split system is a ductless form of heating and cooling that is has its focus on distinct rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more adaptable and energy efficient than normal central air systems and are easy to install since there is no ductwork required. They pump air directly to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have individual wireless electronic temperature control systems.

Mini-split systems aren’t just one size, nor are they all produced equally, or for the same size room. Similar to normal air conditioners, 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 mean savings on your normal energy costs 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 experts at Stevenson Service Experts 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 operates 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 critical to reap all of the efficiency benefits offered.

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 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 all the time. However, if your system is too large, you’ll possibly be spending more on the system and carry the risk of having your mini-split system cycling on and off constantly.

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

Among other things, our team of professionals take into account:
