Reminds me of the AC unit in a hotel room in San Pedro, flex run down to the socket outlet and connected using a couple of nails...

And no, it didn't work... I had to find a bar to stay cool in whilst drinking rum and coke... :)

Are you serious you aint going to get all of this on a post but here is a start if it is a stand alone AC unit say in a hotel room you have a mains supply to the internal unit and a link or control wiring from that to the condenser unit . AC is just a form of heat transfer between the 2 units via refridgerant gas were the liquid gas is flashed off to a vapour this in turn removes the heat from the warm air blowing across the exchanger coil then this is transferred outside to the condenser / compressor unit that turns the hot gas back into a liquid to send back to the unit inside to start the whole cycle again here endith the end of the lesson

Normally I have just supplied a feed for the AC fitters - most small commercial/domestic units are inverter driven.
I normally supply then a 2.5 or 4mm feed via a rotary isolator and they do the rest when they install and commission.
Of course I also check the load before installing conductors.
