You don't need any AC in Scotts Valley. Take a look at the weather averages on weather.com. August is the hottest month and has an average high of 75 F, and average low of 53. The few days a year that it gets genuinely hot are days you can deal with. You just suffer for a couple days.

If it's hot, drive to the beach. It's right there.

Seemed more like 5 weeks last summer, but our solution was twofold:

1) Compact AC in the window of one room - works so good, lots of people from the neighborhood want to crowd in

2) The Basement - You want to know the secret of how to conquer the heat of the South Bay summer? Live in an old house with a basement. Easily 20 degrees less than the rest of the non-air conditioned house.

I live in an old apartment buliding and they will not allow me a window air conditioner. I have limited electricity amp. in my bulding, so an air conditioner would probably blow a circuit as well.

Living in an old house with a basement might work, but then I'd have to move.

I did not like the heat, but I don't think it bothers me as much as it does you. It didn't feel like 5 weeks of hot weather to me, more like 5 days (or maybe 10 at most).

Do you by any chance have a carrot as a nose, a corncob pipe, and 2 eyes made of coal?
