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 looking for an efficient way to improve 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 focused on individual rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more flexible and energy efficient than normal central air systems and are easier to install as there is no ductwork needed. They pump air straight to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have separate 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 normal air conditioners, a mini-split system should be picked to fit the room that it will be responsible for. Doing so could mean more efficient production for you, which may also lead to savings on your normal 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 experts at Stevenson Service Experts are experienced in mini-split system calculations and are 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 works by utilizing a process that only creates the amount of hot or cold air you desire to get to or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a properly sized system is still critical to receive all of the efficiency benefits available. 

Mini-split system sizing 
When it comes to sizing a mini-split system, our team recommends the top product for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to determine your needs and measure 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 constantly. However, if your system is too big, you’ll likely be spending more on the system and run the risk of having your mini-split system turning on and off frequently.
