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 increase 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 focuses on individual rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more adjustable and energy efficient than traditional central air systems and are easy to install as there is no ductwork required. They pump air straight to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have separate wireless electronic temperature control systems.
Mini-split systems aren’t one-size-fits-all, nor are they all made equally, or for the same size room. Comparable to normal air conditioners and furnaces, a mini-split system should be sized to fit the area that it will be in. Doing so could mean more efficient production for you, which may also lead to savings on your normal energy costs as well. They’re typically used for:
- Hot and/or cold rooms
- Enclosed patios
- Homes without space for ductwork
- Large, multi-zone living spaces
Your local pros at Midland Air Service Experts are experienced in mini-split system calculations 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 works by employing a process that only generates the amount of hot or cold air that you need to get to or maintain the temperature you choose. That being said, a correctly sized system is still important to get all of the efficiency benefits possible.
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 space the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that isn’t big enough will end up running 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 carry the risk of having your mini-split system flipping on and off frequently.
