What Size Mini-Split System do I Need?

July 21, 2017

Whether you have an addition to your home that seems to be a little toastier than the rest of the house or you’re simply on the lookout for an efficient way to boost 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 focused on distinct rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more flexible and energy efficient than traditional central air systems and are easy to install as 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 one-size-fits-all, nor are they all created equally, or for the same size room. Similar to traditional air conditioners and furnaces, a mini-split system should be picked to fit the space that it will be heating and cooling. Doing so means more efficient production for you, which could also translate to savings on your normal energy expenses as well. They’re typically used for:

  • Hot and/or cold rooms
  • Additions/renovations
  • Enclosed patios
  • Homes with no room for ductwork
  • Large, multi-zone living spaces

Your local pros at All American Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning are knowledgeable in mini-split system measurements and are able to provide you with specific products based on the size of space that you want 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 you desire to get to or maintain the temperature you have set. That being said, a appropriately sized system is still crucial to receive all of the efficiency benefits possible.

Mini-split system sizing
When it comes to measuring for a mini-split system, our experts 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 area the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that isn’t big enough will end up working 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 turning on and off frequently.
