In most of the United States, the average summer temperature is 7-8C higher than in Amsterdam, at least according to sources I could find. In parts of the American southwest, afternoon temperatures can reach as high as 50C.

I grew up in one of the hottest and most humid regions, where the dew point could exceed 24C, and I got by without A/C. If I lived in the Netherlands, I probably would not repair it, personally. But, I understand people are adapted to their environments, and what's mild and comfortable to me, may not be to you.
