Too much sunshine in the kitchen
My kitchen was continually so hot that I felt like I was in a bake oven.
I knew that we had to do something to get rid of all of the heat and to make the room more bearable.
We had a lot of things that had to be done. The first thing we needed to do was to either get rid of the skylight or to get some way to be able to keep all of the sunlight from coming in. I loved my skylight and how it helped to light the kitchen. We found out about solar shades. With solar shades we could use a small remote and have the shades close when we wanted. My husband said that if we were going to pay for solar shades, he wanted to get the best. We ended up with solar shades that automatically adjusted to the amount of sun coming through the window. The next thing my husband wanted to do was install a ductless mini split into the kitchen. There wasn’t any air vents because we never needed heat in the kitchen. The way the house was designed, the kitchen got the heat from all of the rooms. Unfortunately the air conditioning never really reached there. With ductless mini split, I could have air conditioning whenever I wanted it. If it were a bit too warm, I would turn on the air conditioning with my remote. If it was a bit chilly, I could switch the ductless HVAC to heating and get a quick blast of heat. I felt like I had just been given a brand new kitchen.
