I’ve always been a bit disappointed in the air conditioning in my bedroom.
I guess I should say our bedroom.
My wife and I share the bedroom that is at the very end of the house. This seemed like the most likely bedroom for us since it’s at the furthest end of the house. We wanted to have the most privacy we could. I mean, we love our children but getting away from them isn’t the worst thing in the world either. But we sure gave up the amount of HVAC cooling we get in the room for the privacy. There were a few things working against us. The first being that this bedroom is literally the very end of the house. Not only is it exposed on three sides but it also gets direct sunlight heating all day. This is the only part of the house that gets unrelenting exposure to direct sunlight heating. That said, our bedroom lies at the very end of the ductwork. And that’s just physics. While the HVAC equipment is in good shape, we just don’t get the full amount of air conditioning as it has to travel so far. So we decided to add some value to our home and give up that hot room. The new addition to our house has just been finished and we love it. What’s more, we have our own HVAC cooling with a ductless heat pump. It’s August and I’ve never been happier to retire to our bedroom at night thanks to the great HVAC cooling from the ductless heat pump.
