SOURCE: window or wall mount
The differance between a window and wall mounted A/C is the mounting system.
Window units are usually smaller BTU systems they set in the window, so you do not have to cut a hole in the wall to install it.
For a bedroom say 10 x 10 you can use @ 5000 btu it plugs into a standard 120 volt electric outlet. If the room is bigger then go bigger say @ 6000 btu or so. Take your room dementions with you when shopping for a unit. sometimes they have sizing on the side of the unit box.
Wall units are usually larger units. Like whole house 18,000 btu
they slide in and out of the case and use a 240 volt seperate circuit.
Best place to shop for A/C's are Home Depot, Lowes, Sams Club, B.J.'s, and Cosco they buy in large volumeusually give a Good deal I've seen 5000 btu units as low as $89.00
Just don't drop the unit out the window when installing it
From the second floor it will void your warranty. LOL
Good Luck Phil

If it's the terminology you're unsure of, then the answer is yes the unit can be mounted through a wall or through a window. But you would have to have a suitable opening through the wall to mount it in. I'm not sure why it won't work in your window, but it might be easier to change the window than to create another opening in the wall. Or, as millionaires pointed out, you could put a portable unit that just sits on the floor, with big flexible air ducts to the window.

We had the same problem and changed the setting to auto and the unit seems to be working properly now. Not sure if this solves the problem, but for the past 1/2 hour the unit has stopped jumping between 00 and the temp we set.

the 20 amp circuit should more than handle a 6.5 amp load, the 6.5 is the rating of the operating AC not of the circuit that is required to be attached to it. If the "pop" noise is the breaker tripping the circuit may be miswired, the unit mayhave a short to ground, as the circuit breaker is designed to trip on an over amp situation or a situation where 20 amps is exceeded. Di you verify that the circuit voltage id correct, eg: 220 volt or 110 volts. and that it matches the unit nameplate.
