>> In theory, I thought an AC worked by sucking out Hot air in the room and replacing it with cooled outdoor air. If this is the case, I would think it would suck out the bad air.

> internal air, because it costs a lot of energy: you blow air to the
> outside, which you cooled down before with a lot of effort).
> Usually the AC "sucks" the hot air on a cooling device, cools it down
> (and transports the warmth to the outside, but only the warmth - not the
> air) and blows the cooled air again back into the same room.
> If the heat is generated in the room, but it is not too hot outside,
> then do not use aircondition, but some simple air exchange system with
> fans and separate inlet and outlet.
> If it is hot outside, and the room is heated by the heat from outside,
> then use heat insulation and windows shutters.
> If the heat is generated inside and it is even hotter outside, then an
> airconditioner might be the given solution.
