Whether you have an add on to your home that seems to be a little toastier than the rest of the house or you’re simply looking for an efficient way to increase 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 individual 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 easier to install since there is no ductwork involved. 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 made equally, or for the same size room. Comparable to normal air conditioners and furnaces, a mini-split system should be picked to fit the room that it will be heating and cooling. Doing so means more efficient production for you, which could also translate to savings on your monthly energy costs as well. They’re usually used for:
- Hot and/or cold rooms
- Enclosed patios
- Homes without space for ductwork
- Large, multi-zone living spaces
Your local pros at San Antonio Air Service Experts are well-versed in mini-split system measurements and can provide you with options based on the size of space that you want 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 that you need to get to or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a appropriately sized system is still critical to reap all of the efficiency benefits available.
Mini-split system sizing
When it comes to determining size for a mini-split system, our team recommends the best product for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to determine your needs and calculate the size of the room the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that isn’t large enough will end up working more often, meaning you’re wasting energy all the time. However, if your system is too large, you’ll likely be spending more on the system and run the risk of having your mini-split system cycling on and off constantly.
