It isn't really possible with the heater channels the way they are, but I have heard of some people buying or making a swamp cooler, unfortunately these may look stupid in some situations.

Yes, especially with the help of the batteries. Solar energy can run an air conditioning system. It can run the entire car in fact.

But having only the air conditioning system powered by solar energy would still be a net advantage.

How to install a Central Air Conditioning System?

Most new homes in the United States are built with central air conditioning systems installed during their construction. While many older homes do not have these systems, it is not difficult to install a central air conditioning system. The first step in installing a system is deciding which system is appropriate for the buyer’s needs. Central air conditioning systems typically consist of an outside unit which includes the condenser and compressor, an inside unit which contains the evaporator, and the ducts and pipes in the home that distribute the cold air to the different rooms in the building. Choosing which system is appropriate depends on the size of the area being cooled, the amount of power available to power the system, and the homeowner’s budget. Once the system has been chosen, the first step in installing the system is to install the ducts that will distribute the air inside the house. This is the most time-consuming part of the installation, and will take much longer than the actual installation of the unit. The typical homeowner will need to hire a contractor to install the ducts and central air unit, since installing a central air conditioning unit requires specialized knowledge in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. It is also important to note that in many states, the person installing the central air conditioning system must be certified or accredited by the state in which the home is located. Another important note for the homeowner is that in many states, handling the refrigerants used in the air conditioning unit requires a special certification from the state. Once the ducts and vents have been installed, the next step in installing the central air conditioning system is to install the air handler unit. It is important to make sure the power is turned off to the house before the installation of the air handler unit is started. This component is typically installed in either the basement or attic of the house. Next install the compressor unit of the central air conditioning system. It is important to make sure the compressor is placed on a base which is level, and that the immediate area surrounding the compressor is empty. Once the compressor is installed and level, connect the compressor and air handler unit to the main power unit of the house. The final step of the installation is to install and connect the thermostat unit that will control the air conditioning unit. It is now time to turn power back on and check to make sure the unit is working properly. If the unit does not work properly, consult a licenced contractor for help in fixing any issues.
