I am looking to install it and am a little confused with how the window exhaust kit works. We only have casement windows and so it seems I need to get a piece of wood or something the size of the opening with a 4" diameter hole in it for the exhaust duct. Does this sound right, and if so, what is the included piece of plastic with the hole template/outline for? Also, does anyone have any recommendations as to what material to block the window opening besides plywood? Thanks.
Re: Has anybody found a manual for the Amana AP095R?
The included piece is not a template, but rather the piece the vent tube clips to. One side slides into the other and that allows for it being placed in windows of varying widths. I too had your problem with a casement window. I used a piece of plexiglass and screwed the round part to it and voila it worked. With my setup I was able to close the window (Pella). I later moved it to a double hung and cut the plexiglass to size. when we go out we remove it from the window. Easy peachy japaneasy.

Portable air conditioning offers you the convenience of mobility. All you have to do is roll the portable air conditioner to the room in which it's needed. Install an exhaust hose out a window or other opening (everything you need is provided) and turn it on. The installation process for these units is very simple.These portable air conditioning units are built small enough to be very mobile and are supplied with wheels for easy movement.A portable air conditioner will also work very well in apartment situations where you will often find a window unit is unacceptable.
Portable air conditioners are very unique in that they are portable and can be easily moved to different locations in your home or business.They can be a highly effective way to either help out an existing HVAC system in one room or cool a single room entirely.They are also one of the best ways to cool a room or area without having to install a window mounted unit.
These air conditioners use a compressor and Freon to cool just like normal air conditioning. They are very effective in cooling rooms and to keep the humidity low.Like normal air conditioners portable units extract hot air that must be vented. That is why they need to have the exhaust hose to the outside. These units can cool air as well as air conditioning done with window air conditioners.However they do not require installation like conventional window air conditioners this makes them very convenient for seniors or physically challenged people.Most portable air conditioners are supplied with a window kit. This kit contains exhaust hoses that will work in any window: double-hung, casement, awning or slider.Because they vent through an opening like a window they require no permanent mounting like window air conditioning.
Portable air conditioners are a very good cooling option for those who can't use the more conventional air conditioning methods.Remember though that this type of unit is not as efficient as most window units or conventional air. So while they may make your environment cooler, it won’t turn your tent into a room at the local hotel.
So as you can see these air conditioning units have some great advantages over other types of air conditioning.They are a great alternative for unique applications where central air or conventional window units are either unfeasible or too expensive.During special events, portable air conditioning can also be a great way to keep guests or equipment cool and comfortable.Always be aware though that because portable air conditioning will remove moisture from the air, they will also need to be drained occasionally similar to a dehumidifier.
Does your application warrant a permanent air conditioner of some form or should you just use a portable one? There are some interesting things to consider when making that choice. Weigh out all of the different options and make that decision based on what will best suit your needs.
The Casement doors and windows are best to to use as they are made up of UPVC which is a cost effective and long lasting. Casement doors and windows are resistant to heat, offer you proper ventilation and they are not prone to termites. So, don't think much, just go 4 dat.

Don't know why this is posed in Chainsaws, but here goes. Check if the windows are 'square', meaning that there are good even gaps all around the window when it is closed. If not, the window may need to get shimmed to make it 'square' again. This is especially a problem on casement windows for bay or bow windows as they hang over the edge of the house. When properly installed, the weight of the window frame is tied into the attic rafters (on a ranch house) by wire cable so the window will not sag over time. If there is a framing support under a bay/bow window, it may need to be adjusted to bring the window back to square.
The portable AC units generally have a customizable, exhaust hose window, termination kit that comes with the unit.. In other words it can be cut to fit. The one that comes with the unit will fit casement windows, as well as sash windows.
To further assist you, I have included a link to the Owner's/Installation Manual for the model you referenced. You may download and print it if you like.
They make special window units designed specifically for casement windows. They are taller and skinnier than standard window a/c's. They are no where near as common as standard window a/c's so you might have to look a little harder, but they are out there.
