I've just moved into an apartment without an air conditioner in Sunnyvale, California. The weather is not too hot, but there are going to be some pretty warm days in the summer, especially since I'm on the second floor of two. The temperatures at night should be cool enough to manage quite well - if I can get enough cool air in here!
There's no house fan, and it being an apartment, there's not much I can do about that. So what's the best way to circulate air with standalone fans?
Added fun: a neighbor smokes near my main windows, so I'd really prefer to pull air in through a screen door instead.
(I'm from Texas originally, where no one would dream of building anything without air conditioning, so I have absolutely no experience with this!)
