I lived there for 7 years without central air. A realtor told us 80-90% of the homes don't have it. Most businesses do.
CS is a desert climate, so the days are dry and the evenings cool down nicely. There are some days in summer where it gets into the 90s, with August being the most humid (nothing like the south!) We got by just fine with fans, open windows, and a window AC unit in the master bedroom.
