AC not working
I have an AC unit set up with the cool side facing the room I wish to cool down and the heat side in another room. The AC is set too -270 C and it is hotter inside than it is outside

Update: All of my people have died from heat stroke. The AC is connected to power but it won't work.

AC needs to have the hot side facing a very large room or preferably outdoors. Otherwise all that heat is pooling up inside that room and bleeding back through the walls.

Why -270C? You only need to put the temperature down to -1 or -2C in order to freeze food.

The hot air needs to go somewhere, you can't pump it into a hot room or the cooler stops working.

Yeah, temps bleed into adjacent rooms...So, yes it's been said but you need to build at the very least vents to the outside.

room is probably too big for just one ac unit. one unit can handle about 30 squares.

I personally only set an AC for keeping stuff frozen to -10C since it usually won't go above 0C during a heat wave with that setting. Setting it to -270C sounds like a good way to give your colonists hypothermia. After being certain there is space for the hot air to vent, I would suggest putting it on its default setting of 21C to prevent killing anyone. Putting a passive cooler in bedrooms and room that get a lot of traffic during a heat wave is a much simpler solution to heat stroke problems, but you need to have the passive cooling research completed and some wood to build them with.

So I've had something like this happen, except instead of the hot air blowing into another room, its blowing outside. Anything going on with that?
