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 choice. 

What’s a mini-split system? 
A mini-split system is a ductless form of heating and cooling that focuses on specific rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more adjustable and energy efficient than normal central air systems and are easier to install as there is no ductwork required. They pump air directly to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have their own 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 common air conditioners, a mini-split system should be chosen to fit the room that it will be heating and cooling. Doing so could mean more efficient production for you, which may also mean savings on your regular energy bills as well. They’re normally used for: 

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

Your local experts at Norrell Service Experts are experienced in mini-split system sizing and are able to provide you with options based on the size of space that you want to heat and cool. 

A quick primer 
A mini-split system operates by employing a process that only generates the amount of hot or cold air that you need to achieve or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a correctly sized system is still important to receive all of the efficiency benefits possible. 

Mini-split system sizing 
When it comes to measuring for 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 figure out your needs and calculate the size of the room 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 over time. However, if your system is oversized, you’ll possibly be spending more on the system and have the risk of having your mini-split system flipping on and off frequently.
