If both air conditioners are both the same except one is 110 and other is 220 yes the 220 machine will draw less current in amps....

To get the same output you need to put in the same input, theirs no free ride its the same amount of electricity to do the same work. Watts = Volts X Amps. So 220V uses half the amps but twice the Volts. 110 uses half the Volts but twice the amps.
