Thanks for the help everyone! Especially Dr. John, what would I do without your wisdom? <br><br>I'm pretty sure I'm going to try a portable unit. I've got a couple months to shop. <br><br>Gary, we installed ceiling fans just last weekend. They are great, particularly in the master bedroom and the living area. Those rooms have vaulted ceilings. This particular office room is the smallest in the house and has a very low ceiling. Even though it would probably help a little, pushing around the air that is as hot as it gets in here would probably only bake me quicker (think convection oven). <br><br>
Trog, I can't remember when exactly you moved to Vegas, but I noticed your "how dry it is here" comment. Have you experienced the summer blast-furnace effect yet? You know, when that exceptionally dry hot air is blowing 50mph toward the end of the summer? Also, that wonderful chilling freezer burn wind? Lovely! Yes, it is actually dryer in Las Vegas than it is in Phoenix. I suspect that due to the massive growth of the Valley of the Sun, we actually gained some humidity down here. A luxury (if you can call it that) you don't have up there in Vegas yet.<br><br>

Heh, we moved in late August, so we have yet to experience a full summer here. But, my sister has lived here for years and we have visited during mid summer many times. Its considerably hotter than Tucson, but I think your Phoenix nighttime lows in the summer might be a bit warmer than here.<br><br>You may be right about the growth of Phoenix contributing a bit to humidity (a lot of irrigation and exotic plants), but in general the main difference is that you are in the (wonderful *sniff, sniff*) Sonoran desert and I am now in the Mojave. There is considerably less rainfall (very few Monsoons) here and so plants are virtually nonexistent.<br><br>We have really only experienced the bad at this point - horrible traffic, big city, crazy freaks. But, as soon as the new jobs settle in a bit we'll get to see some of the wonderful outdoors in the region.<br><br>
