I've seen this type of device advertised in the US. What happens,
heat can't be destroyed, only moved. So, there is usually a hose
on the back that moves hot air out through a tube. You have to
open a window enough to put the vent tube out the window. This
means that outdoor air has to come in some how, to replace the
hot air which is being sent out.
From what I've seen, 12,000 BTU per hour is about the largest
unit that we have that will run on 110 volts, about 12 amperes
current draw. Do you have 220 volts in the UK?
At 220 volts, this unit would draw perhaps 7 or 8 amps. Will your
electrical system handle it?
Did you notice the price, of L400? That's about $800 US, which is
a bit pricey. Since we can get a window AC at Walmart for about
For a one bedroom flat, 16,000 BTU per hour may be a bit over
sized. In the US, window AC start about 5,000 BTU. A couple fans
would be desirable, to move the cold air around, so you don't
have a cold spot near the unit, and warm every where else.
