Battling the Heat

Hi, I'm currently in Baltimore and we are experiencing a serious heat wave which I suspect will continue for the next two months as it did last year and the year before . . . Well, until now I had central air conditioning. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for keeping my bass safe. The coolest place in the house is the basement, but I worry about mildew, (I should, right?,) which means the first floor is the only other place. Window unit turns on in the eve, but of course that's not my problem. During the day, it must sit in the house and we cannot afford to keep the air con running all day just for my bass. (The girlfriend already has minor issues with the space it takes up downstairs.) Also, humidity is kickin' around here, which doesn't help much. Is the contrast of air con in the eve and heat during the day just as bad as leaving it in a sweltering room? How much should I worry, what should I do, etc. It's a 2+ year old Palatino plywood. (If anybody has anything to say about me getting a better bass, send the money and a picture of the bass to 1234 Biteme Lane, Baltimore, MD 20852.)

Thanks for any help and words of wisdom/experience. This board's been feeling a little lonely lately.
