2 Ton Mini Split Breakdown

Welcome to the wonderful (and complicated) world of a 2 Ton Mini Split! It's no secret that these systems can offer significant energy savings and improved comfort, but buying one can be a challenge. Knowing what to look for and where to start can be difficult with so many options.

What are 2-Ton Mini Splits?

The size of a 2 Ton Mini Split is rated by the number of BTUs (British Thermal Units) it can handle per hour. A 2 Ton Mini Split typically has an output of 24,000 to 30,000 BTUs and is designed to cool an area of up to 1,333 square feet. This system is also energy efficient and can save money on monthly energy costs.

Installing a 2-Ton Mini Split

When it comes to installation, most 2-Ton Mini Splits can be installed DIY. However, hiring a professional is best if you're looking for a more complex setup with multiple units. This will ensure that the installation is done safely and correctly.

Mini-Split Brand Consideration 

Finally, you should consider the features and brand. Different brands will offer different features such as multiple fan speeds, air filters, easy-to-use controls, and even timer settings. Some top brands include MRCOOL and Buck Cool

Perfect for Spaces with Limited or no Ductwork

A 2 Ton mini-split is ideal for spaces with limited or no ductwork, like your RV or cabin. Because they don't require any vents and run off electricity, they can be installed relatively quickly and are great for adding air conditioning in areas where you didn't think it was possible before. 

Understanding Mini Split You Need

Before you can pick the perfect mini split for your home, you need to know the difference between a 12000 BTU, 18000 BTU, and 36000 BTU unit. The wattage refers to how much heat output the mini-split produces. The higher the wattage, the larger and more powerful your mini split is. Here is a great mini split-size calculator

What Size BTU Mini Split Do I Need?

  • 12000 BTU units are best for small bedrooms or bathrooms between 250 and 350 square feet.
  • 18000 BTU units can cool rooms up to 700 square feet. They work well in larger offices, living rooms, and bedrooms.
  • 24000 BTU (the typical 2-ton mini split) can cover medium-sized rooms easily and can even be considered for some of your larger areas that are less than 1333 square feet
  • 36000 BTU units can cool even the largest rooms, up to 1,400 square feet. These are ideal for commercial spaces.

What Size Ton Mini Split Do I Need?

Make sure you pick the correct output AC unit based on the size of your space. Opting for too large an AC unit will cycle off too soon, leaving your space feeling too warm. Here are some rough guidelines:

It always pays to consult with a professional installer before making a final purchase decision—they can recommend the best unit based on your needs, local climate, and conditions in the space you're cooling or heating.
