What Size Mini-Split System Do I Need?
Whether you have an add on to your home that seems to be a little warmer 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 choice.
What’s a mini-split system?
A mini-split system is a ductless form of heating and cooling that focuses 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 as there is no ductwork involved. They pump air right to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have their own 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. Similar to normal air conditioners, a mini-split system should be picked to fit the area that it will be responsible for. Doing so can mean more efficient production for you, which might also translate to savings on your monthly energy expenses as well. They’re typically used for:
- Hot and/or cold rooms
- Enclosed patios
- Homes without room for ductwork
- Large, multi-zone living spaces

A quick primer
A mini-split system operates by employing a process that only creates the amount of hot or cold air you desire to achieve or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a appropriately sized system is still crucial to get all of the efficiency benefits possible.

When it comes to measuring for a mini-split system, our experts recommends the best 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 get the size of the space 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 constantly. However, if your system is oversized, you’ll possibly be spending more on the system and run the risk of having your mini-split system turning on and off frequently.
