Window or wall mount

I want to install an ac unit in the wall of my bedroom (upstairs). Do I need a slide in/out chassis? What is the difference 'tween a "wall mount" and "window mount" unit. I don't plan to remove this unit once it is plugged into the wall so I do need to be able to provide maintenance from inside the house.

Thanks to all you ac gurus out there :-).

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

My attic air conditioner will stay at 81 degrees in the hottest part of the day only when it is sunny when it is cloudy it works fine I have a small 900 sq foot ranch


if the difference in termperature is between 15 and 20 degrees between the inlet and outlet, the unit is doing all it can and is undersized. if not check for airflow problems, filters, dirty coils etc. and if that is all good, then there may be issues with the refrigerant charge

How can I install/mount a window a/c unit in the bedroom window of my 5th wheel? Jody


hi jody. as you know, a window a/c can not stay in a 5th wheel that is moving down the road.

that said, measure your window and find an a/c to fit it. ? You may have to remove the window unit and have a part fabricated that will allow you to slide in the a/c when you want and secure the opening when traveling down the road.

Tran A/c installed last summer


It's the ducting that causes the problem. But if the old unit wasn't as bad, did they install a smaller unit to save on money? It is possible, some companies do this to make more money. Sad but it is true. A return added to the room would help but if they can run a return, then they can add another duct or reduct the room as well. Sounds like someone is trying to sell you a story without fixing the issue. Tell them that they don't need to add an extra run, tell them to change the size! Also, make sure that if the run is longer than 25 feet, the ducting has to be stepped down in size to increase valocity to the vent. For example, you have a 10" duct running for 25' and then you step down to 8" the rest of the way unless that run is more than 25'. Hope this info helps!

Thru the wall AC units(small)


If the Ac unit can not fit your window, you can put a wall unit, you don’t have to open the wall and mount a stable unit, you just need to buy a portable AC unit put on.

This way cost you not too much.

Through the wall vs. window installation


I just purchased an alleged "window mount" air conditioner with the closest dimensions to the existing model. Do these mount as through the wall as well? My current opening = 18 x 26" the new purchase is 16 27/32 x 26.

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
