Whether you have an add on to your home that seems to be a little hotter than the rest of the house or you’re simply on the lookout for an efficient way to increase 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 individual 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 simpler to install since there is no ductwork involved. They pump air right to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have their own wireless electronic temperature control systems.
Mini-split systems aren’t only one size, nor are they all produced equally, or for the same size room. Much like traditional air conditioners, 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 bills as well. They’re typically used for:
- Hot and/or cold rooms
- Enclosed patios
- Homes without room for ductwork
- Large, multi-zone living spaces
Your local pros at Orangutan Home Services are knowledgeable in mini-split system measurements 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 works by using a process that only generates the amount of hot or cold air needed to achieve or maintain the temperature you choose. That being said, a properly sized system is still critical to get all of the efficiency benefits possible.
Mini-split system sizing
When it comes to measuring for a mini-split system, our pros recommends the top choice for you as we do with all of our heating and cooling equipment. We work directly with you to determine your needs and measure the size of the area the system will be heating and cooling. A mini-split system that is too small will end up running more often, meaning you’re wasting energy constantly. However, if your system is too big, you’ll likely be spending more on the system and run the risk of having your mini-split system flipping on and off frequently.
