Mini-split advice

Curious if those of you that have gone this route, have you installed an air handler in each bedroom? My house was built in 1948 and is just 987sf. Since the ancient oil furnace hasnít been used in years and the chimney collapsed, Iím looking at a mini split system for heating and cooling. Was considering just a 12k btu in the living room and hardwired heaters in the bedrooms and bathroom. There are three bedrooms, master being 12íx14í. Just looking for input as to what you would do in this situation. I plan on doing the install myself regardless if itís a four area mini split or just one and hardwired wall heaters.

You didn't say where you're located.
Is heat the only concern in the three bedrooms ?

It would make more sense to put in four units in order to have better control.

Located in western North Carolina. We do have humid days in the summer, not like the eastern seaboard but yeah I’m looking for more of a central heating and cooling system.

I have one heat pump for my 1300 sf house. I installed an electric baseboard heater in the master bed but haven't used it. We also fire up the gas LR fireplace on cold mornings. BUT, I have a gas heater installed in the insulated basement set for 55 or so for the cold months in Maine. If I had a wife that required a very warm home, it wouldn't work. You will love the cooling and wonder how you ever got along without it.
