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.

The unit goes off and on and will not let us change the temp or anything else.

Does it give you a code? Try turning only one at a time to see if that works. I would like to help you but need more information.

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.

Panasonic air con unit is not blowing cold air out.


This unit is use in motels etc. Check the ouside coil ( conderser) from the inside (discharge fan ) for dirt. Most of these units are floor level . This can cause a unit to short cycle ( cold air is at the floor) .

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.

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

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
