Can a window air conditioner fit in an exhisting wall mount?

I have a old wall mount conditioner that no longer works. Would a window mounted air conditioner work and fit, obviously depending on the dimensions? Wall mounted ACs are so expensive.

    Wall mounted is where there is a custome-fit hole cut into the wall, non-window. The unit fits in and the back of it sticks out of the house. I believe is an old way of installing air conditioners.

    The issue now is finding a unit that fits the dimensions: 17 3/4"H x 26" W

    never heard of Wall mount AC. And yes, an window AC will work.

    I needed help with air conditioning installation in Rowlett TX, too. I didn't think it would fit.

Our wall mounted air con is set at 16 degrees but it is not cooling the house at this temp. Could it be the thermostat


most wall mounted ac units are designed to only cool a room, not a house
close all the doors to the room along with all windows
generally a 3kw unit (32,000btu )will cool a room 12ft X 12 ft X 9 ft quickly but anything bigger, the time that is taken to bring the temp down gets longer and longer depending on the setting and 16 C is far too low

Accessing filter in indoor wall mounted LG air conditioner R18AWN-NC9


You should just be able to pull the front up from either end. It just press fits on - finger tips either side - presumably a wall mount?
This will expose the filters which just slide out for easy cleaning. Make sure unit is off as it will blow all the dirt all over you.
Tap clean outside or hoover them.

My exist. unit is a very old sears coldspot through the wall mounted in a 12x18 in.exact sleeve. Can i remove unit and replace with FRA052XT7 ?. Exist sleve is vented on both sides & back.This is...


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.

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


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

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
