Post Chins in Warmer Weather

I do not have an air conditioner in my house. I live in the northeast and summers can get quite warm. I have read that chins can suffer heat stroke above 75-77 degrees. I am already thinking about how to deal with this situation when summer arrives.
He lives in my home office and it does get quite warm during the summer (above 75-80).
I am asking for suggestions, opinions, etc.

It sounds to me like I should start looking for a small A/C for the window in my office. How do others deal with this situation? Thanks!

The best idea is to get a window A/C for that room and make sure it's kept on anytime the inside temp reaches 75 or so.

There are other ways but none are near as safe as having the a/c.

I am with Christi on this one for sure. The best thing is to get the a/c unit for just that room. They usually have the small ones at walmart for a decent price.
