PexSupply.com has an extensive Resource Center to help DIYers and professionals learn how to use their tools and parts to successfully finish their project. The Resource Center includes tools, guides, videos, a glossary, and calculators. The calculators ask questions and then calculate a response based on the input answers. The Mini-Split AC Calculator, PexSupply.com’s eighth and newest calculator, asks questions such as “Do you want to install your indoor unit(s) on the wall or the ceiling?” and “How many windows are in the room?” The answers to these questions are used to calculate your BTU requirement and find the right Mini-Split system for your specific needs. The seven other calculators currently offered in the Resource Center are The Radiant Heat Calculator, The Joist Trak Calculator, The Quik Trak Calculator, The Grease Trap Calculator, The Baseboard Heater Calculator, The TrueSTEAM Calculator, and The Expansion Tank Size Calculator.
Mini-Split technology was invented in Japan and is becoming more popular in the United States. The increase in popularity is due to Mini-Splits being quiet, energy-efficient and stylish. Mini-Splits have a sleek design so they look great in residential or business environments. Mini-Splits are a perfect choice for those looking to add air conditioning to just one room, such as the master bedroom, or to an extension / room addition. Those who are bothered by the noise of their current air conditioning window unit may find Mini-Split Air Conditioners to be a great solution.
Installation and sizing of an air conditioning unit can be tricky due to various factors such as insulation, number of windows, and the age of the building. These factors can also have a major impact on the number of BTUs required to effectively cool the space. When purchasing an air conditioning unit, it is also important to keep in mind the location of the building in regard to geography and climate. Knowing the range of temperatures that your desired location receives each season is necessary when picking out a unit.
The Mini-Split AC Calculator by PexSupply.com determines what size unit is needed for your space. The calculator can compute results for up to four rooms. Additionally, the calculator will recommend personalized components, based on your inputted answers to the ten questions, of what will be needed for your system. The calculator includes the BTU requirement for each room inputted. You always have the flexibility to choose your preferred brand (that meets those requirements); however, the calculator is currently set-up to show Sanyo Mini-Split Air Conditioners. Sanyo is a popular mini-splits brand. PexSupply.com looks forward to hearing feedback from those who use the calculator and urges those looking for a quiet, energy-efficient and stylish air conditioning unit to try the calculator.
