I heard they need to run off their own socket as they draw a lot of power? cant i use an extension lead and plug it in that?
It's very heavy, so you won't want to move it again once you've got it upstairs.
I got portable ones.They are great with days/nights like this.They are noisy but so is leaving the windows open in the summer.So its either a noisy hot night or a noisy cool one
I guess it depends on the surrounding. If you live at the side of the motorway then without doubt that would be true, if you live in a quiet cul de sac then I'd bet that the AC unit is much louder (I know mine is!).
just make sure it's a 13 amp one and you don't plug anything else into it.
Having other things plugged it that aren't running at the same time is less of an issue, as it's only about overloading the lead.
