What Size Mini-Split System Do I Need?

Whether you have an add on 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 improve 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 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 simpler to install because there is no ductwork required. 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. Similar to normal air conditioners, a mini-split system should be chosen to fit the room that it will be responsible for. Doing so means more efficient production for you, which could also mean savings on your normal energy costs as well. They’re usually used for: 

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

Your local team at Stevenson Service Experts are experienced 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 using a process that only creates the amount of hot or cold air needed to achieve or maintain the temperature you have set. That being said, a correctly sized system is still critical to get all of the efficiency benefits possible. 

Mini-split system sizing 
When it comes to measuring for a mini-split system, our experts recommends the top option for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to decide your needs and get the size of the space the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that isn’t big enough will end up operating more often, meaning you’re wasting energy all the time. However, if your system is oversized, you’ll likely be spending more on the system and have the risk of having your mini-split system flipping on and off constantly.
