Whether you have had a renovation 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 boost your home’s comfort, a mini-split system might be the way to go.
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 adaptable and energy efficient than traditional central air systems and are simpler to install as there is no ductwork needed. They pump air right to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have separate wireless electronic temperature control systems.
Mini-split systems aren’t only one size, nor are they all made equally, or for the same size room. Comparable to common air conditioners and furnaces, a mini-split system should be sized to fit the area that it will be responsible for. Doing so could mean more efficient production for you, which may also mean savings on your monthly 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 experts at Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning are knowledgeable in mini-split system measurements and will be 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 employing a process that only generates the amount of hot or cold air that you need to achieve or maintain the temperature you choose. That being said, a properly sized system is still important to reap all of the efficiency benefits possible.
Mini-split system sizing
When it comes to sizing a mini-split system, our team recommends the ideal 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 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 too big, you’ll possibly be spending more on the system and run the risk of having your mini-split system flipping on and off all the time.
