Drop in a Frigidaire 25,000 btu, 230-volt Electronic Control Air Conditioner (Model #FAS256R2A). It is Way More Cooling than you need, but it is a very efficient unit and will provide quiet, nearly instantaneous room temprature reduction! Width 26-1/2... Height 18-5/8... Wall Sleeve Included... about $450.

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.

Heatman101, I am about to buy a one room HVAC unit for one large bedroom (14'x16') and my HVAC fellow recommended an Amana thru wall unit model # PTC093B35AE. He quoted $1200. What do you think of this...


Stay away from Heatman 101 as he does more damage than he's qualified to do much else so just stay away from him, period

We have had our 12000 BTU sharp ac for about 10 years now. The unit seems to be working but is not cooling the room that well. How do I know if its the compressor or it just needs coolant? If it isn't...


Remove the unit and clean the evaporator coils and the condenser coils with a good coil cleaner chemical.
Oil the fan motor bearings.
Replace the capacitor.

I have a 27 inch wall sleeve can a 26 inch friedrich unifit work?or do I need a 27 inch unit


the a/c units keep getting smaller, when unit replacement is slightly smaller , the extra space can be filled with a piece of plywood or rigid foam insulation with a thin layer of plywood, any edges seen from inside can be covered with trim, make sure the wood covers entire bottom layer of sleeve to properly support. or just find the larger unit if you can. hope this helps.

Amana thru the wall ac unit won't turn off


The adjustment knob on the unit does not turn down how do you get the knobs off? Can we replace the control unit with one that is touch control? Could the problem of it not turning down be the thermostat? It is an Amana PTC153A35AD wall unit.

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

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

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
