Yeah I admit I'm a wuss. It kills a good night of sleep when it's too hot for me and we are no where as hot as the rest of Canada.

My condo has floor to ceiling windows facing northwest and it definitely feels like a sauna even with shades and windows open and unfortunately central air is controlled by the strata and not individual units.

$500 is definitely worth the investment for couple years of good climate control in your house. I think people can blow more than that on a weekend out partying or just daily lunches or coffee adding up through a year.

^ yes where to get? oh n for ppl looking into getting a window fan, dont get the one from canadian tire because in order to "reverse" the air flow ull need to physically reverse mount the fan to change directions, all others ive seen has switches to reverse the air flow.

I've seen those types of fans at Walmart actually. I'm sure other places have similar ones too (home depot, canadian tire, etc).

It may be ghetto to do this but man, I love it lol

+1

We picked up our portable AC for $300 on sale. Everywhere else ended up being sold out the following day

$500 is most definitely a worthwhile investing in controlling the temperate in your house, especially when all your friends start whining about how they're melting at home

For those of you with condos:

Which portable AC units are you using? Most require a window that doesn't open like most modern condo windows open (in/out, rather than up/down). Do you just DIY some ducting to make it work, or are there units specifically for the in/out type of windows?

We have ours hooked up to the patio door. All portable AC units should have brackets that extend the height of a sliding patio door.

Mine is actually from CT. It's the one that doesn't reverse. However, I honestly have not needed to reverse it at all. I just keep it on 24/7 and it keeps the room comfortable enough.

Changing the wiring to have reverse wouldn't be too hard either since there are three switches. OFF, LOW, HIGH. The low setting can easily be wired to go in reverse.

Worst case, buy a piece of plexi, cut the same size as the window opening, then using the window mount that comes with the AC as a template, cut a hole the same size.

Some stratas have restrictions on what you can see from outside (ie. blinds and window decorations).

Last night was the first time this year I didn't use the heater in the basement. It's perfect. Upstairs feels like a sauna.

For those with window fan.

I know you pull air in at night.
But during the day, should you pull air in or push air out?

if the window fan is facing the sun, push out, but make sure u also open a window that is shaded so cool air can replace the hot air that is pushed out. if the window fan is shaded then pull in

I'm liking this sharing of different methods haha. Maybe I'll look at these window fans as a next project.

Not sure if a window fan will work for my weird ass room..

No wind comes thru.. literally, with the window wide open (it slides right - left).. I could hold a piece of paper right against the mesh screen and it does not move... even at night its the same thing..
you can feel the temp is so hot as soon as you walk into my room from the hallway.. its super noticeable...

Yep. The key is airflow. An apartment can be easily set up for that. Below is a rough idea of how my system looks. It's a corner unit. The blue represents open windows. The red are the window fans.

The fans are always set to exhaust. This lowers the air pressure in the apartment, causing air to come in through the bedrooms. Depending on the time of day, I'll shut the door to the room that's getting blasted with sunlight. In addition to constant airflow, resulting in cooler temps, you also get a nice, quiet breeze when you sleep. Not having noisy fans in the room while you sleep is nice!
