Thank you Wonks and Max for all your help so far, it is much appreciated. I am going to have a chat with my AC installer again to try and get to the bottom of this.

Have found it extremely difficult I must admit to find tradesmen who really know their stuff and who are willing to take the time to do a proper job.

interesting window dimension.....

Methinks the suspicion of massaged just a little under size figures, to be able to quote cheap and win the job might be rearing it's head.

I have issues with my AC unit bringing street noise in from the hole in the wall that the unit goes through. Something else that might be a concern for you. Most studios I see have the AC in another room and then fans and ducting that bring the cool air in from the room the AC is in into the tracking and control room.

I have heard LG Art Cool is supposed to be pretty quiet though but I haven't heard or used it myself. I like the idea of the Art Cool because they put a smaller hole in the wall. My last studio had an evaporative AC which was good as most the noise was outside on the roof and not heard much from the inside so you could actually have it on when recording.
