Furthermore, these devices take indoor air from the room to push through their heat exchanger on the high pressure side. This creates a constant partial vacuum within the room. Ultimately, the Aircon must cool warm, outside air, which is drawn in through gaps in the room. This smashes any chance of efficiency (reflected by the 1-3 stars you see on their sticker). As mentioned, the noise is atrocious. I bought one out of laziness. It was so bad I gave it to my Parents. They gave it away a week later, and nothing of value was lost.
