How hot is it?
(DETM August Newsletter)
Well, it is finally hot here in the Vancouver area. As we usually don’t get more than a few days of heat, many condos and houses do not have air conditioning in the lower mainland. Our condo is in this category, and since our windows face south and west, we get the sun on our floor to ceiling windows all day long. This orientation is great in the winter, but certainly not on our hot days in the summer, that are getting more numerous. We end up cooking in a gold fish bowl.  
A few years ago, we got one of those portable AC units. Having that in our bedroom allows us to cool down and sleep during those hot nights. I decided to get another AC unit for our office
I know these little AC portable units aren’t the most efficient units, but if you seal the windows around the exhaust well, they work pretty well for small spaces and for a few days each year.
