Whether you have had a renovation to your home that seems to be a little hotter 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 could 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 specific 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 right 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 produced equally, or for the same size room. Comparable to normal air conditioners, a mini-split system should be picked to fit the room that it will be in. Doing so can mean more efficient production for you, which could also mean savings on your monthly energy bills as well. They’re typically used for:
- Hot and/or cold rooms
- Enclosed patios
- Homes with no room for ductwork
- Large, multi-zone living spaces
Your local pros at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning are experienced in mini-split system measurements and are able to provide you with specific products based on the size of space that you’re looking to heat and cool.
A quick primer
A mini-split system works by utilizing a process that only generates the amount of hot or cold air you desire to achieve or maintain the temperature you have set. That being said, a appropriately sized system is still important to receive all of the efficiency benefits offered.
Mini-split system sizing
When it comes to sizing a mini-split system, our pros recommends the ideal choice for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to decide your needs and calculate the size of the area the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that isn’t large enough will end up operating more often, meaning you’re wasting energy constantly. However, if your system is too big, you’ll possibly be spending more on the system and have the risk of having your mini-split system turning on and off all the time.
