So I moved to L.A. recently, and my apartment is not very well air-conditioned. The temperature in my room is about 78 degrees, which for me is not very comfortable. I can't install a window-mounted AC because of the way in wich my window opens, so the next-best option for me is to get a small portable air-conditioner, or an evaporative cooler. I'm just curious to hear people's opinions about how effect either are, the noise factor, etc... My main concern about the evaporative cooler is that it will leave my room very damp, I don't want papers cooling and dew forming on surfaces etc... Thanks.
