They are interesting, but what they are is merely heat pumps; you also
need to carry the heat away with the flow of some material (eventualy to
be pumped outside of the building). [Radiative cooling is not really
applicable for the required rates of heat transfer; it'd require equipent
to be hot way past the point of melting :)]
