   It's a cross betweeen a window unit and a central air conditioning 
system.  There's a compressor that mounts outside, and a coil & blower 
that mounts inside on the wall, connected by a bundle of cables and 
freon tubes through a 3" (or so) hole in the wall.

   I get the impression that they're pretty efficient, but I don't have 
actual numbers handy.  As I understand it, though, freon 
compressor-based air cooling systems generally become more efficient as 
they get larger, though I don't understand why.
