How Ductless Mini-Splits AC Systems Work
Like other cooling units, mini split AC systems move hot and cold air where you need it. During warmer weather, the mini split evaporator will remove the warm air inside your house, transport it to your condenser and release it outside. During cooler days, the system can reverse the process and bring cold air outside.
On top of that, mini splits are also great for moving colder or hot air from one room to the other. For example, if the basement is always too cold, while your bedrooms are too warm, a min split can move cooler air from the basement to the upstairs.

Ductless Mini-Split System Sales Growth Is Slowing
Some larger VRF-style commercial systems are still growing at higher rates, but their numbers in the U.S. remain a fraction of the market at only 28,000 units per year.
A bright small bright spot for the segment can be seen with accelerated growth in denser urban areas.
Though the ductless segment has seen impressive growth rates in the U.S. since 2005, the growth rates have been softening recently and the biggest ductless segment (small, single evaporator systems) have not grown at all since 2010. These sales remain stable at about 260,000 units per year, or only about 4% of total unitary AC shipments.
Why Is Mini-Split System BTU Important? And What Do I Need?
Just like a traditional HVAC system, BTU’s determine the size of the property that a system can cool. Whether you are installing a conventional or mini-split system, you need to make sure that you are installing a heating and cooling system that can provide the temperature control the size of your space.
The only way to know exactly how many BTUs your unit needs to be is to consult with an HVAC contractor in your area, as it may depend on other factors like the placement of the unit, climate, insulation, etc. For a rough estimate, you can calculate 17 to 24 BTUs per square foot of the desired living space.
But here are general guidelines to give you an idea on the number of BTUs your ductless mini-split system may need to cover your living space.
Area To Be Cooled (SF) Unit Size Capacity (BTUs Per Hour)
700 – 1,000 1.5 Tons 18,000
1,000 – 1,200 1.5 or 2 Tons 21,000
1,200 – 1,400 2 Tons 23,000
1,400 – 1,500 2 – 2.5 Tons 24,000
1,500 – 2,000 2.5 Tons 30,000
2,000 – 2,500 3 Tons 34,000
3,000 – 4,000 4 Tons 48,000
5,000+ 5 Tons 60,000

- Central Air Conditioning
For the most accurate cooling around the home, central AC is the way to go.
