Yes really you do, I guess you could take the umbilical cord out through a window as a temp measure but you are meant to drill a core drill hole in the wall, I think it has to be 4" to get the leakproof plug through.

If anyone goes for one of these please bear in mind that from what I read the other day the outside mounting bracket (used if the cooling unit outside is not at ground height) may not be deep enough for the unit as the plug for the refrigerant exits the back. Maybe B&Q have altered this mount but best to ask if your thinking of a bedroom install with the evaporator mounted high up on the wall.
Also the hose joining the 2 parts is 4mtrs long and cannot be shortened as its a sealed unit with special plugs that dont loose the refrigerant when plugged in. I also seem to remember that the outside unit has to be fitted within +_ 1metre in height of the indoor part.
You would do well to research yourself before purchase as I may just be talking gibberish.

i was looking at these last night, they had quite a few in stock. Today they have none hmmmm (17000btu split easy install)

The 9000BTU at £124.75 is showing as in stock again. How hard are these to fit for an upstairs bedroom? ...tempted to get one at £124+delivery.
