    The A/C won't bother him. You just have to be careful about
    sudden changes in temperature. For example, if it's 80 where
    he stays now, don't suddenly expose him to 65. Try to keep
    the changes to no more than about 10 degrees at a time and
    give him time to adjust. And of course, never place his cage
    where it is in the direct air flow from one of the vents. He
    shouldn't be in a draft from which he can't escape. He might
    like a large sheet clipped on the back wall of his cage to
    keep drafts off him. At least until he adjusts. Also watch
    your humidity. Don't let it get to low, as some A/C units
    are prone to do.
