Install a through the wall AC/heater combo. Turn on only when you need it. Smaller ones are only 120 volts.

I was closing up holes that i made in the drywall on Saturday and it was 90+ outside. I noticed cool air blowing from the holes. My thoughts were there is an open duct blowing into the void between the ceiling and the upstairs floor.

I cut a hole in the ceiling so that I could take a look around. It was very refreshing to stick my head up there but I could not find any ducting. I looked through the attic and found nothing conclusive. After poking around, I figured out that HVAC had been run in the garage. The house has 2 units. It used to have threee, based on the breaker box. 'AC Unit 3' was scratched out and now shows 'open'.

So for now, I am going to put a vent on the hole in the ceiling and bring the cool air into the bathroom.
