How To Properly Measure For a Mini Split System in Facilities Management

Facilities management is a complex and ever-evolving field that requires specific information about a building’s heating and cooling needs in order to determine the most efficient and cost-effective HVAC system. Mini split systems are a popular option for facilities that want a cost-effective and efficient cooling solution. For a mini split system to be properly installed, it is important to measure correctly for the system. This blog post explains how to properly measure for a mini split system.

Why is Measuring for a Mini Split System Important?

Measuring for the correct size of a mini split system is important for a number of reasons. First, a properly sized mini split system will ensure that the HVAC system is efficient and cost-effective. An improperly sized system can lead to energy waste and higher energy bills. Additionally, an undersized system will not be able to sufficiently cool the facility, while an oversized system can cause issues with humidity levels.

Steps to Properly Measure for a Mini Split System

When it comes to measuring for a mini split system there are a few key steps to follow:

  1. Measure the square footage of the space that will be cooled. This is important in order to ensure that the system is large enough to effectively cool the entire space.
  2. Calculate the number of windows, doors, and other openings that will need to be taken into consideration. This is important in order to ensure that the system is large enough to account for the amount of air that is going to be lost through the openings.
  3. Determine the type of insulation in the walls and ceilings. This is important in order to ensure that the system is efficient and cost-effective.
  4. Calculate the overall number of occupants in the space. This is important in order to ensure that the system is large enough to account for additional heat generated by the occupants.

Conclusion

Measuring for a mini split system is an important step in the overall process of facilities management. Understanding the key steps to measuring for the correct size of the system is essential in order to ensure that the system is efficient and cost-effective in the long run.
