I bought my first house, an old house this past November (160 years old to be exact), it is now finally summer and we are realizing how HOT the second floor is. There is no attic, so our two bedrooms are essentially functioning as one (heat wise). We are hesitant to put an A/C unit in one of the windows due to a plug that is:
1.) only two pronged and
2.) "not grounded" per the inspector and subsequent electricians (both of which we are not).
Although the previous owners did have an A/C unit plugged in to this outlet (using an adapter) I was wondering if there are any safety measures I could take to ease my mind about any fire hazards plugging an A/C unit in there and still stay cool this summer?
Thank you for any and all feedback.
