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 boost your home’s comfort, a mini-split system could 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 focused on specific rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more adaptable and energy efficient than common central air systems and are easier to install since there is no ductwork required. They pump air directly to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have their own wireless electronic temperature control systems.
Mini-split systems aren’t just one size, nor are they all produced equally, or for the same size room. Comparable to common air conditioners and furnaces, a mini-split system should be picked to fit the area that it will be in. Doing so means more efficient production for you, which could also lead to savings on your regular energy expenses as well. They’re normally used for:
- Hot and/or cold rooms
- Enclosed patios
- Homes without space for ductwork
- Large, multi-zone living spaces
Your local team at Church Services are well-versed in mini-split system calculations and will be able to provide you with options based on the size of space that you want to heat and cool.
A quick primer
A mini-split system functions by using a process that only produces the amount of hot or cold air that you need to achieve or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a properly sized system is still crucial to reap all of the efficiency benefits possible.
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 room the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that isn’t large enough will end up running more often, meaning you’re wasting energy constantly. However, if your system is too large, you’ll probably be spending more on the system and carry the risk of having your mini-split system cycling on and off all the time.
