What Size Mini-Split System Do I Need?
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 looking for an efficient way to improve 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 specific rooms and spaces, not an entire home or building. Mini-split systems are more adaptable and energy efficient than traditional central air systems and are easy to install because there is no ductwork needed. They pump air straight to wall or ceiling mounted air handling units that have their own wireless electronic temperature control systems.
Mini-split systems aren’t one-size-fits-all, nor are they all created equally, or for the same size room. Comparable to traditional air conditioners, a mini-split system should be chosen to fit the space that it will be heating and cooling. Doing so can mean more efficient production for you, which may also mean savings on your normal energy costs 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 pros at Winnipeg Supply Service Experts are experienced in mini-split system calculations and can provide you with specific products based on the size of space that you want to heat and cool.
A quick primer
A mini-split system works by utilizing a process that only generates the amount of hot or cold air you desire to reach or maintain the temperature you pick. That being said, a properly sized system is still important to get all of the efficiency benefits possible.

A mini-split system that isn’t large enough will end up operating more often, meaning you’re wasting energy over time.
