I have never lived in a house (or apartment) that did not have central air conditioning. I think I have been spoiled!

take a cold shower..
I'm in Carlsbad , CA , I have my a/c on, my husband called to ask me to look into a room airconditioner for his 92 year old mother, Lowes is SOLD OUT (Just this AM) .. I know if you take a cold shower it really cool you down (I'm originally from Fla so I know!!) Does anyone have experience with one of those room air conditioners?

They are great! My cousin's house doesn't have central air and they have room a/c in the family room. It really keeps that part of the house comfortable. I think the one of the most important things when buying one is making sure you get one that is powerful enough for the room/ rooms you want to cool.

Pat, you might try the other home stores like Lowes, Osh, etc.

I thought about a room a/c a while back, but I'd really rather have something built in that doesn't take up floor space. Oh and I refuse to have a window a/c because we have sliders and you'd have to put something on the top half that wouldn't close and I've not been impressed with plywood as a window covering. Besides I like I to be able to open the windows when the weather is nice which is most of the time here.

It was pretty warm here today, but I'm not sure how hot. In Orgeon September can still be a nice summer time. I have central air- we put it in when our furnace was replace almost 2 years ago. I love it. Before that we just had a window unit in our bedroom which made it possible to sleep in hot weather. But the central AC really gets the humidity out of the house.

It's down to about 88 now which feels really good and almost cool!

I guess you can get one for the next heat wave after it cools down, Pat.
