If you are someone who is thinking about a ductless split system installation, you likely have a few questions. One of the most frequently asked questions is, “What size ductless split system do I need?” Regardless, these ingenious cooling systems provide a consistent flow of cool air and are highly efficient by delivering a consistent. That said, ductless split systems must be properly sized to achieve the maximum benefits.
The energy efficiency delivered by a ductless split system is because the technology enables the system to only create the amount cooling needed to sustain the wanted temperature. Despite being highly efficient, a too small system will waste energy from unit running continuously, while still falling short of keeping you comfortable. Conversely, the system that is too large will have you spending more on equipment than needed.
Nonetheless, the sizing will rely on several factors. This will include the existing insulation, the area needing to be cooled, and the total number of expected indoor air handlers. More indoor units will require a more precise sizing. Considering these are high-performance systems, only a trained professional technician can make accurate sizing and installation recommendation. A ductless split system installation is not a do-it-yourself project, There are inherent safety risks and installation processes that demand specialized skills and high-tech tools.
