This renewed mini-heat-wave is killing me.

Our house has no central air conditioning, so we use window units.
I got tired of the traditional window units because they don’t last very long, are hard to find (we have sliding casement windows instead of the traditional drop-sash ones), and are prone to drip water into the sills with extended use.
So I tried replacing them with rolling AC units with a hose intake. They are WAY less efficient – the fan is weak, the hot end of the compressor is inside the house, etc. The window units were barely cutting it, but these can only cool a single room. So we moved them from the biggest impact spots to the specific two rooms we most wanted cool.
However, the outlets in both of those rooms are on the same 15A circuit so if one AC unit kicks on while the other is already on, the circuit breaker trips.
Which happened this morning.

So we had a house guest the past couple of days, and the house is unbearable.

And it’s super humid, so we use dehumidifiers to fix that, but of course, after running for about an hour, the air coming out of the dehumidifier is hot air, so does it really help?
