There are 2 different types of window air conditioners – there are the window type of which will fit in a window that opens top to bottom and there is the slide in model of which the actual air conditioner will slide into a metal sleeve which is very common in apartments. In either case you need to measure the inside of the metal sleeve and then give that to the air conditioner dealer and he will know what to do and there is also a POS (point of sale) @ the store of which will also assist you in the measurement of the A/C unit – the window unit you need to measure the opening of the window itself, I hope this was helpful

Get rid of the old stuff,too big to be used
Newer unit can't be inside the old sleeve as you call it

Just install the new unit how you see fit, to seal
it up

5000BTU is too small

A 7,200,8,000 or 10,000 BTU is the same size & about
the same price.

Putting a window air conditioner in the wall


I dont see a problem with these working in the wall, however you will probably need to install a condensate line to drain away the water that will be left from condensation. These items may be purchased from any hardware store.

Hope this helps Ya please rate me

Is this the right unit? Can it be used with a sleeve?


If a sleeve came with it then it should be used unless you are replacing a unit and the existing sleeve is properly mounted. Then sleeve should have a slight backward angle so that condensation does not drain into the living space.

Through the wall vs. window installation


window mount doesn't have to extend out on the back to clear the side /top intake vents because a window is about 2" thick,
but a wall mount has to have about 6 to 8 " clearing before the intakes vents can be exposed. you can't have your intakes buried in the wall.
in short if you see about 8 " of dead metal in the center area (just behind the window sill) then you can mount it in a wall as it will protrude far enough to clear the side /top intakes.


a sleeve just gives you a way to balance / attach to the outside wall
