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 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 has its focus on individual rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more flexible and energy efficient than normal central air systems and are easier to install because there is no ductwork involved. They pump air directly to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have individual wireless electronic temperature control systems.
Mini-split systems aren’t only one size, nor are they all created equally, or for the same size room. Comparable to normal air conditioners and furnaces, a mini-split system should be picked to fit the area that it will be responsible for. Doing so could mean more efficient production for you, which might also lead to savings on your normal energy bills as well. They’re normally used for:
- Hot and/or cold rooms
- Enclosed patios
- Homes without room for ductwork
- Large, multi-zone living spaces
Your local experts at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning are knowledgeable in mini-split system calculations and will be able to provide you with choices based on the size of space that you’re looking to heat and cool.
A quick primer
A mini-split system works by utilizing a process that only creates the amount of hot or cold air that you need to achieve or maintain the temperature you choose. That being said, a correctly sized system is still critical to receive all of the efficiency benefits possible.

A mini-split system that is too small will end up running 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 carry the risk of having your mini-split system turning on and off all the time.
