Whether you have had a renovation to your home that seems to be a little toastier 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 answer.
What’s a mini-split system?
A mini-split system is a ductless form of heating and cooling that is has its focus on distinct rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more adjustable and energy efficient than normal central air systems and are easier to install because there is no ductwork involved. 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 one-size-fits-all, nor are they all produced equally, or for the same size room. Comparable to normal air conditioners, a mini-split system should be chosen to fit the area that it will be heating and cooling. Doing so can mean more efficient production for you, which may also lead to savings on your monthly energy costs as well. They’re typically used for:
- Hot and/or cold rooms
- Enclosed patios
- Homes with no room for ductwork
- Large, multi-zone living spaces
Your local pros at Peachtree Service Experts are knowledgeable in mini-split system calculations and can 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 generates the amount of hot or cold air that you need to reach or maintain the temperature you have set. That being said, a properly sized system is still critical to get all of the efficiency benefits offered.
Mini-split system sizing
When it comes to determining size for 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 decide your needs and calculate the size of the area 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 over time. However, if your system is too large, you’ll probably be spending more on the system and have the risk of having your mini-split system flipping on and off frequently.
