We live in a neighborhood with an HOA (Home Owner Association) and they do everything in their power to make our neighborhood beautiful... including not allowing us to have a traditional air conditioning unit in our windows. Living in Washington State, having a heat pump is not a common thing, even in a brand new house, as we tend to only get 30 really hot days. All that being said... I hate being hot.
I would love to find another option for AC... I have heard about "room units" or "mobile units" but I don't know anything about them
Anyone here ever had anything like these or something else? Please share

We grew up without A/C and used box fans through the house. IF you plan to live at your current home for awhile, plant a lot of shade trees on the East, South and West sides of your home. Something that grows rather fast and offers abundant shade. Tulip Poplars or Leland Cypress are fast growers.
