I have an air purifier and keeping all windows/doors closed is going to be a must. But the humidity and temperature are issues now. I can get a dehumidifier but then I'm left with the temperature problem - I like a cool 68F. It seems like my options are:
- Portable A/C with some kind of tube - I haven't seen any on Amazon that have good reviews though. I also don't know where I would go about installing the exhaust tube.
- In-window AC - I'd be fine with this if it fit a standard outlet however none of my windows seem compatible with this setup (see below for photos).
- Evaporative cooler - this seems nice in theory but I'm in SoCal where humidity can be an issue. I also haven't seen any with promising consumer reviews.
- Ductless - I like this but... $$$
Am I missing any options? How would you go about keeping your air crisp, clean, and cool in my situation?
Pics of my windows:
BATHROOM - one little window, sliding:
KITCHEN - two windows, sliding:
BEDROOM - one window, sliding:
And then I have a sliding door in my living room.
I consider myself to be handy-capable - enough so to remove windows and such. I just repainted my place, replaced all outlets/switches, installed a fan etc so I'm comfortable making modifications as needed but I'd like to keep costs (time, money) as low as possible.
