Most of the homes in Montana do not have central A/C, instead, we use the old-fashioned Montana A/C. Montana A/C is we encourage guests to open windows at night, and closing them up during the day (Including curtains/blinds). Closing them during the day will help keep cool air inside, and we ask that you do so if you are not present in the home for your safety. Additionally, most homes will have fans located in the bedroom closets. **This home DOES feature Central Air and has ceiling fans for convenience!**
