Whether you have an addition 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 choice.
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 common central air systems and are easier to install since 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 only one size, nor are they all created equally, or for the same size room. Much like normal air conditioners, a mini-split system should be sized to fit the room that it will be in. Doing so means more efficient production for you, which could also mean savings on your normal energy bills 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 Robinson Service Experts are knowledgeable in mini-split system calculations and will be able to provide you with choices based on the size of space that you’re looking to heat and cool.
A quick primer
A mini-split system operates by using a process that only produces the amount of hot or cold air needed to achieve or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a properly sized system is still important to reap all of the efficiency benefits available.
Mini-split system sizing
When it comes to determining size for a mini-split system, our pros recommends the best choice for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to determine your needs and get the size of the area the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that isn’t big enough will end up operating more often, meaning you’re wasting energy all the time. However, if your system is too large, you’ll probably be spending more on the system and run the risk of having your mini-split system cycling on and off all the time.
