What Size Mini-Split System Do I Need?

Whether you have an add on to your home that seems to be a little hotter than the rest of the house or you’re simply searching for an efficient way to boost your home’s comfort, a mini-split system could 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 individual rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more adaptable and energy efficient than traditional central air systems and are simpler to install since there is no ductwork required. They pump air straight 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 produced equally, or for the same size room. Much like traditional air conditioners, a mini-split system should be sized to fit the space that it will be in. Doing so means more efficient production for you, which could also lead to savings on your monthly energy expenses as well. They’re typically 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 Air Engineers Service Experts are well-versed in mini-split system measurements and will be able to 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 operates by employing a process that only generates the amount of hot or cold air that you need to achieve or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a properly sized system is still important to get all of the efficiency benefits available. 

Mini-split system sizing 
When it comes to sizing a mini-split system, our team recommends the best product 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 area the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that is too small will end up operating more often, meaning you’re wasting energy all the time. However, if your system is too big, you’ll probably be spending more on the system and run the risk of having your mini-split system cycling on and off frequently.
