Update: the seat cooling takes air from the interior of the car, cools it, sends it through the seats.
It sucks the air from underneath the seats.
It works best if the AC is on because the seat will pull the cooler air.

The technician said it's not the best seat cooler, but it's efficient and used in all JLR models.

Agree PS702! Peltier coolers/heaters are what we have and we have had this discussion before. Peltier coolers turn cold on one side and are warm on the other side. I should help to have the normal ventilation in the car running when ever you have the seat heater/cooler running to remove the waste heat side or to warm the cold side, depending on the mode. There is a tiny supply duct that comes out of the center console near the seat bottoms. A fan is integral to the heater/cooler, as the parts diagram shows. I believe sciencegeek has performed load testing on the seat heating mode.
