Unhappy Air conditioner ?

Now in summer and the problem came:air conditioner or not?here the daily temperature is about 78F to 89F,sometimes in July and August it will raise to 94F......should I take the cages in the living room and let my lovebirds enjoy the air conditioner with us
if yes,is that possible that my birds get sick easily due to the diversity of the temperature???the machine can't work all day long

What are they used to? Changing the temperature rapidly can stress them or make them sick. Parrots can handle high temps without a problem, as long as there is air circulation. The biggest thing is keeping it consistent. So if they're outside, I wouldn't worry until it's over 90 and then maybe just put a fan in the room so they have some good air circulation - not pointed at them, it should be indirect. People keep birds in outdoor aviaries year round here in FL and it gets brutal

Where are the birds' cages usually?
Also, I heard that unlike popular belief, birds do better in cold weather than hot. Not sure how true this is.

I live in New Mexico and our favorite saying is, "if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes and it will change". Amy does fine in the air conditioning, I just make SURE that she is not in an area where she will feel a "draft". I was told once, a long time ago that Amy could catch a cold if I put her in a "drafty" or "breezy" place.

I was going to suggest putting the birds in an area where some of this air conditioning might somewhat get to them. But I'm not sure, I don't know anything about your house or the weather.
