Our house in DC is humid and hot in the top level master bedroom which is like an attic loft. It is always about five-ten degrees hotter up there than the rest of the house.
We are bringing our newborn home from Louisiana where he was born on Monday and we plan to have him in our room. We need an option to cool the room but an expensive air conditioner isn't appealing and fans can't really be blowing directly on the baby, and the only middle ground I can find is something called an evaporative cooler. Apparently these work best in dry climates but I can't figure out how they work or if it would work at all where we are; we like that it's also a humidifier as that's nice for baby.
Thoughts/ideas? The room is huge - 600 square feet - but there's one section that he will be in and we don't care if something is awkwardly in the middle of the room. Just can't be directly on baby.
