Answer: Yes it does. Never place your thermostat close to lights or televisions. It will sense the heat emitted by the appliances and make your unit run longer. This will of course, have an impact on utility bills. Also install the outdoor unit in shady pace, preferably on your home's north or east side. Too much exposure to sunlight will affect the cooler’s efficiency. Also ensure that shrubs and trees in the garden do not smother you unit. There should be enough airflow.
