What Size Mini-Split System Do I Need?

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 increase your home’s comfort, a mini-split system could 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 has its focus on distinct 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 because there is no ductwork involved. 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 only one size, nor are they all made equally, or for the same size room. Much like normal air conditioners, a mini-split system should be picked to fit the space that it will be heating and cooling. Doing so can mean more efficient production for you, which might also lead to savings on your regular energy costs 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 Stevenson Service Experts are knowledgeable in mini-split system sizing and can provide you with specific products based on the size of space that you’d like to heat and cool. 

A quick primer 
A mini-split system operates by employing a process that only produces the amount of hot or cold air that you need to reach or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a correctly sized system is still critical to reap all of the efficiency benefits offered. 

Mini-split system sizing 
When it comes to sizing a mini-split system, our pros recommends the best choice for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to determine your needs and get the size of the space the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that is too small will end up working more often, meaning you’re wasting energy over time. However, if your system is oversized, you’ll likely be spending more on the system and carry the risk of having your mini-split system turning on and off constantly. 

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

Among other things, our team of pros take into account: 

  • Room size (length, width, height) 
  • Age of your home 
  • Insulation levels 
  • Columbus weather patterns 
  • Type and number of windows
