My gliders are housed in the loft. Our Central air is out and we have space air conditioners we are using. Not sure how warm is too warm and will harm our babies?

They can handle up to 80 degrees as long as there is air movement in the room.

Put an oscillating fan in the room for them.

If it's much warmer than that, you may want to move them to the ground floor. Warm air rises, cool air settles low.

Be sure they had access to an open water source too like a bird silo, or a shallow dish of water changed daily.

Yes, keeping water for them and changing daily. The room is at 85 with a fan-I have a cage I can bring in downstairs but would have to put all four in it and I have not started swapping sleeping pouches yet as I wanted to acclimate them first-I can though if you think they are too hot?

As long as the air is moving in the room and they have fresh source of water in a bowl or dish they should be ok.

My glider room gets up to 80 to 85 and I have an oscillating fan in there and they do ok, they may kick out some of their blankets but they are ok.

When we are in our 5th wheel, and we have a power outage or the outside air is too hot for the single A/C to keep up with, I will spray their cage with fresh water and put a fan near them. The humidity helps if there isn't an abundance in the air already.

Our room at home stays at 80deg in the summer and we keep the ceiling fan running to move the air.

Still consistently near 85-86 when I get home from work. I have the covers on the cage-blocking east sun that can peak through to their cages. They appear okay so far. Lots of humidity from the 90g aquarium. Looks like an additional week as unit not arrived yet! frown
