What Do We Mean by “Midsize Home”?

The way home size is defined varies across states. There is no nationwide standard that defines the size range in which midsize homes fall under. A midsize home in Texas might be a small or large home in another state, and vice versa.

Some people consider a midsize home to be as little as 1,816 sq ft and as large as 3,500 sq ft with 2,422 sq ft being the average. Some say a large home is 3,000+ sq ft, while others say that anything less than 3,000 sq ft is a small home, proving how subjective this topic is.

Square footage aside, the average midsize home consists of 3-4 bedrooms, 1-3 bathrooms, a kitchen, a living room, dining room, and some have an office, garage, and/or basement.

How Much Coverage do Midsize Home and Office Signal Boosters Provide?

Our midsize home boosters, also called signal amplifiers, repeaters, or extenders, are designed to cover areas between 2,000 – 5,000 sq ft and are powerful enough to provide consistent cell reception in every room of any sized medium home under optimal conditions.

When we say “optimal conditions,” we mean an area with strong outside signal and few obstacles blocking the signal from reaching your home.

If you have a strong outside signal, but your home's building material is blocking the signal from entering your home, you'll get pretty close to the maximum amount of coverage the signal booster can provide.

Unfortunately, building material isn't always the only obstacle. Cell tower distance and anything sitting between your home and the cell towers, such as trees, hills, lakes, and tall buildings, negatively impact the cellular signals, resulting in poor cell reception.

It’s important to note that if you want whole-home coverage and live in an area with extremely weak outside signal, a midsize home signal booster may not be powerful enough to provide such coverage. It will, however, be able to improve cell reception in your small office and a couple of adjacent small areas. For wider coverage consider adding additional inside antennas to the system or looking into cell phone signal boosters for large homes and offices as they are more powerful.

Do Cell Phone Signal Boosters Work?

To work, cellular signal boosters require existing cellular signal – they amplify signal, not create it. If you walk outside and you have one bar of service, the signal booster will work.

For optimal results, proper installation is required. More specifically, the placement of your outdoor antenna (Yagi or Omni) and indoor antenna (Panel or Dome) can have a big impact on performance.

  • Ideally, the outdoor antenna should be installed on the roof to reduce the number of interferences. The antenna will have a better line of sight with the cell towers and capture the strongest signal available. If the kit includes a Yagi antenna, it must point in the general direction of the nearest cell tower.
  • The indoor antenna should be placed in the area where you want better coverage – the closer you are to the antenna the stronger the signal. A dome antenna is ceiling mounted and will work best in open home layouts since they are omnidirectional and distribute equal amounts of signal in every direction. Panel antennas, on the other hand, are usually wall-mounted, sometimes ceiling mounted, and broadcast signal in one direction, thus they are slightly more powerful than a dome antenna. They are great at covering a single floor, a large room, or hallway. Ideally, panel antennas should be placed in the room where superior coverage is need. For example, if you want the most consistent coverage in your home office, it’s best to install it there.

Are Cell Phone Signal Boosters Worth It?

If you’re looking for a reliable way to permanently improve cell reception inside your midsize home and office, cell phone signal boosters are definitely worth it. Reliable cell reception is vital for comfort, work productivity, and emergencies, especially now, in 2021, where working from home is expected to become the new normal. In fact, many companies have plans to continue working from home long-term.

Signal boosters will broadcast enhanced 4G LTE and 3G signals (with some models being 5G capable) in your home office, living room, kitchen, basement, and bedrooms. Eliminating the possibility of dropped phone calls with clients, managers, supervisors, family, and friends. Plus, they also improve cellular data speeds. So, if you’re using your mobile data to stream videos, research, send emails, participate in video conference calls, or relay on a mobile hotspot, a signal booster will reduce buffering and improve data speeds for every mobile device.

You’re probably thinking that WiFi can accomplish the same thing, and you’re not wrong – WiFi is usually faster than mobile data and WiFi calling will help reduce dropped calls. However, WiFi is not always reliable. What would happen if you have poor cellular signal inside your home and your internet service provider is experiencing outages or there are multiple people connected to the network making it excruciatingly slow? You probably won’t get much work done, you’ll experience dropped calls, your videos will buffer, and your apps will take forever to load.

Even if you rely on WiFi, a cell phone signal booster can work as a parallel network to offload WiFi congestion and improve cell reception inside your home and office. This way you’re constantly connected.

Best Cell Phone Signal boosters for Midsize Homes and Home Offices

Cell phone signal boosters for medium-sized homes and offices help improve cell receptions in a wide variety of situations. They are ideal for homes in urban and suburban areas, as well as cottages, and cabins in rural areas. Therefore, the midsize home and office signal booster category is the most popular. To view a list of the top 10 best signal boosters of any category, read our short guide.

weBoost Home MultiRoom

Overview of the name of the weBoost Home MultiRoom:

  • Covers up to 5,000 sq ft
  • Up to +65 dB gain
  • Compatible with all cellular devices across all cellular networks
  • Boosts multiple cellular devices simultaneously
  • Tool-free installation
  • Features stylish fabric front antenna
  • $549.99

The weBoost Home MultiRoom is the most popular cell phone signal booster for midsize homes and the one that just makes sense for most people.

It’s designed to either blanket an entire midsize home with reliable cellular reception or cover up to 3 large rooms – it just depends on your outside signal strength. If you have a strong cellular connection outside your home, like 5 bars of signal, you’re likely to receive up to 5,000 sq ft of coverage. If you have decent outside signal, between 3 and 4 bars, you can expect up to 3,500 sq ft, which is still enough to provide whole-home coverage for the average midsize home. Signal areas with 1 to 2 bars might get up to 1,000 sq ft of coverage - enough for your home office.

Plus, it features a tool-free installation. The stylish fabric front antenna can be propped up with its kickstand or mounted on the wall with the included 3M command strips without having to drill holes on the wall. Also, the kit includes a finger tightening precision mount for the outside antenna to make installation simpler and easier. In addition, to avoid drill holes through your walls to run coax cable into your house, you can use the flat window cable and run it through the window instead.

The Home MultiRoom signal booster is a great option for those who want a powerful booster that also features an aesthetically pleasing design and a simple installation. For wider coverage, consider the weBoost Installed Home Complete by Wilson Electronics.

HiBoost Home 4K Smart Link

Overview of the name of the HiBoost Home 4K Smart Link:

  • Covers up to 5,000 sq ft
  • Up to +60 dB gain, with up to 24 dBm uplink and 10 dBm downlink
  • Compatible with all cellular devices across all cellular carriers
  • Boosts multiple cellular devices simultaneously
  • LCD display
  • Monitor Performance through HiBoost’s Signal Supervisor app
  • $399.99

The Home 4K Smart Link is designed to bring industrial quality signal boosting into your midsize home or office for superior in-building cell service.

It’s capable of providing up to 4,000 sq ft of coverage as long as a strong cellular signal is available outside. However, areas with 1-3 bars may see between 1,000 to 2,500 sq ft – enough to cover two or three rooms.

The included high-gain Yagi directional antenna and wall mount indoor panel antenna work perfectly together to optimize indoor coverage in all situations, especially in rural areas.

With the HiBoost Signal Supervisor app, you’ll be able to access a simple step-by-step installation guide to make the process 100x easier. The app even includes a power meter tool that will help detect the strongest cellular signal to optimize the outdoor antenna's placement – you won’t have to download additional apps or try to figure it out on your own. Plus, you’re able to remotely monitor the booster’s performance and troubleshoot from the palm of your hand.

If you’re looking for whole-building coverage and your home or office is located in an area with extremely poor cell service, consider the HiBoost Home 10K Smart Link Signal Booster.

SureCall Fusion Install

Overview of the name of the SureCall Fusion Install:

  • Covers up to 5,000 sq ft
  • Up to +72 dB gain, with up to 26 dBm uplink
  • Compatible with all cellular devices across all US carriers
  • Boosts multiple cellular devices simultaneously
  • Features 2XP technology
  • Includes a free professional installation for residential buildings only
  • $899.99

The SureCall Fusion Install is a powerful signal booster designed to greatly enhance cell service inside your midsize home or office regardless of location.

It features 2XP technology which increases the system’s ability to reach distant cell towers, and SureIQ which automatically adjusts the system's gain when it receives strong cell signals to prevent the booster from overloading and shutting down. These unique technologies make it a strong performer in urban and suburban areas, as well as rural areas where cell tower distance is the main cause of poor cellular service.

Not to mention, it includes a FREE professional installation. The installer will ask you a couple of questions to determine what the best location is for each component so that you don’t have to. This way you’ll experience maximum signal boost in the areas where it’s needed most.

Under perfect conditions, meaning a strong outside signal and minimal to zero outside interferences, it can provide whole home or office coverage in residencies up to 5,000 sq ft. Weak signal areas, however, may get 1 to 3 rooms of coverage.

If you need a stronger signal booster, consider the SureCall Fusion Professional, though it won’t include a professional installation.

HiBoost Home 4K Plus

Overview of the name of the HiBoost Home 4K Plus:

  • Covers up to 4,000 sq ft
  • Up to +65 dB gain
  • Compatible with all cellular devices across all North American carriers
  • Boosts multiple cellular devices simultaneously
  • 2-in-1 Amplifier/Antenna combo
  • LCD display
  • Monitor Performance through HiBoost’s Signal Supervisor app
  • $449.99

The HiBoost Home 4K Plus is a state of the art cell phone signal booster for midsize homes and offices that need strong and consistent voice and data throughout.

The kit includes a high-gain Yagi antenna designed to reach far away cell towers for superior in-building signal and a 2-in-1 amplifier/panel antenna combo with two additional indoor antenna ports. The use of a 2-in-1 unit makes the installation process faster and easier.

With its powerful amplifier and antennas, it’s capable of providing up to 4,000 sq ft of coverage in areas with a strong outside signal. However, if you tend to get between 1-3 bars of service outside your home or office, you’ll most likely get between 1,000 to 2,5000 sq ft of coverage. To maximize the coverage area, you have the option to intergrade one or two additional antennas and install them in the areas where you want better cell service.

Plus, just like the HiBoost Home 4K Smart Link, the Home 4K Plus also features the Signal Supervisor app, which helps with the installation process, allows you to remotely monitor performance, troubleshoot the signal booster, and so much more.

If you’re looking for a signal booster that can provide wider coverage, but offers the same features as the Home 4K Plus, consider the HiBoost Home 10K Plus.

SureCall Fusion4Home Yagi/Panel

Overview of the name of the SureCall Fusion4Home Yagi/Panel:

  • Covers up to 4,000 sq ft
  • Up to +72 dB gain, with up to 26 dBm uplink
  • Compatible with all cellular devices across all US carriers
  • Boosts multiple cellular devices simultaneously
  • Features 2XP technology
  • Offers multiple configurations to satisfy any situation
  • $499.99

The Fusion4Home is one of the most versatile and scalable signal boosters for midsize homes and offices located in strong signal areas and at the edge of the network. The most popular DIY configuration includes an outdoor Yagi antenna and an indoor panel antenna.

With its powerful amplification capabilities, it can provide up to 4,000 sq ft of coverage under optimal conditions. Add in 2XP technology, and you have a signal booster system capable of reaching far away cell towers to provide better talk, text, and data speeds for homes and offices located in rural areas. Keep in mind, though, that the further you are from the cell tower, and the more obstacles there are between your cellular devices and the cell tower, the less coverage you’ll receive.

Those who have decent signal outside their home or office, but building material prevents incoming signals from entering the home may get the best result from the Omni/Panel bundle. On the other hand, if your outside signal is extremely poor, you’ll be better off with the Yagi/Panel or Yagi/Dome bundles. The Yagi/Dome will work best in open layout homes where there aren’t many indoor obstacles blocking the broadcasted signal.

If you want a signal booster that’s more powerful than the Fusion4Home and provides wider coverage, consider the SureCall Fusion5s.

SureCall Flare 4G 3.0

Overview of the name of the SureCall Flare 4G 3.0:

  • Covers up to 3,000 sq ft
  • Up to +72 dB gain, with up to 26 dBm uplink
  • Compatible with all cellular devices across all North American carriers
  • Boosts multiple cellular devices simultaneously
  • 2-in-1 Amplifier/Antenna combo
  • Unique design
  • $379.99

The SureCall Flare 4G 3.0 is the most affordable and uniquely designed signal booster for the smallest of midsize homes and offices.

Rather than having to set up three separate components, an amplifier, an indoor antenna, and an outdoor antenna, this kit only includes two components: a powerful outdoor Yagi antenna and an amplifier/indoor omni antenna combo unit. It’s actually one of the easiest signal boosters to install.

Areas with a strong outside signal can expect up to 3,000 sq ft of coverage. However, since coverage is based on your outside signal strength, weak signal areas will only receive spot coverage, making it a good option for people only looking to improve cell reception in their home office.

If you want whole-building coverage, but you have poor outside signal, you’ll need a stronger booster. Consider the SureCall Fusion Install.
