What Size Mini-Split System Do I Need?

Whether you have an addition to your home that seems to be a little warmer than the rest of the house or you’re simply searching 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 has its focus on individual 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 as there is no ductwork required. They pump air right 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 made equally, or for the same size room. Comparable to normal 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 may also lead to savings on your normal energy expenses as well. They’re normally 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 Stevenson Service Experts are well-versed in mini-split system sizing and will be able to provide you with choices 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 reach or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a appropriately 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 team recommends the best product for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to decide your needs and measure 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 oversized, you’ll probably be spending more on the system and run the risk of having your mini-split system flipping on and off all the time.

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

Among other things, our team of pros consider:
