In the north owning an air conditioning is like owning a pool.
It looks great, people comment on it but you hardly use it.
The northern summers don’t particularly start until June and by the end of June it is done. The afternoons are hot but the nights get cool fast. A cooling system would only be necessary for maybe several months and not for the entire day. A few nights getting hot enough having an air conditioning would be great. Most northern families get a box or window fan and call that enjoyable enough. I know of a few people who bring down a window AC component for that brief period of time. Nobody owns a central air conditioning though. It would be a spectacular waste of currency and hardly used. What the north particularly does is heating though. My household has three heating systems currently. I have an upstairs Moore oil furnace that is vented to a chimney. I have a bedroom ventless oil furnace and a living room gas fireplace. I wish I had a space oil furnace in my office and a mini cut in my bedroom. I assume three heating systems is enough though. I learn that some people get heating maintenance once a year. My upstairs oil furnace came with my home and hasn’t ever quit. The gas fireplace only gets finicky about the remote start. The ventless oil furnace needs my hubby and I to take an air compressor and blow all the dust out of it occasionally. Other than that, I haven’t noticed an issue with the oil furnaces never getting service.
