Ductless cooling in the kitchen and bedroom

I live way up north where they say you don’t need to own an air conditioner.

Well technically no, it doesn’t get hot enough to warrant central AC in the house.

For me, I like having a little AC. The smartest thing I ever did was add a ductless mini split to the house. I had one outdoor air compressor and two indoor air handlers. One is in the kitchen and the other is directly above the kitchen in my bedroom. In the winter the kitchen can stay toasty warm even though it is far from the gas fireplace in the living room. In the summer I can run the AC when I have the burners on and the oven on. It no longer feels like a sweatshop there. The best is having AC in my bedroom though. I am going through menopause and having no AC was really rough at first. I couldn’t hardly sleep due to feeling too hot. I would sweat through my sheets and change them in the middle of the night. I also would fling off the covers, sweat and then want them back after I had cooled down. It used to be really rough getting comfortable. Now when I feel a hot flash going on, I just use my thermostat remote to turn on the air conditioner. I then get gentle cooling to help me feel a little better. Once I am cooled down, I can turn it off right from my bed. Yes I still wake up and get disturbed, but now I no longer need to get out of my bed and change sheets. It is a sign incat improvement in my life.
