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 choice.
What’s a mini-split system?
A mini-split system is a ductless form of heating and cooling that is focused on specific rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more adaptable and energy efficient than normal central air systems and are simpler to install since there is no ductwork required. 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 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 chosen to fit the area that it will be in. Doing so means more efficient production for you, which might also translate to savings on your monthly energy costs as well. They’re normally used for:
- Hot and/or cold rooms
- Enclosed patios
- Homes without room for ductwork
- Large, multi-zone living spaces
Your local team at Eveready Service Experts are well-versed in mini-split system calculations and are able to provide you with options based on the size of space that you’re looking to heat and cool.
A quick primer
A mini-split system operates by employing a process that only creates the amount of hot or cold air needed to get to or maintain the temperature you choose. That being said, a appropriately sized system is still crucial to reap all of the efficiency benefits available.
Mini-split system sizing
When it comes to sizing a mini-split system, our team recommends the best option 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 area 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 constantly. However, if your system is too large, you’ll possibly be spending more on the system and have the risk of having your mini-split system cycling on and off all the time.
