Air Conditioner Installation Types: Through The Wall

A through-the-wall air conditioner installation involves the following: 

• First, you’ll need to determine is how thick your wall is. Measure the distance from the inside to the outside including studs, sheet rock, and material on the outside of your home. 

• Remove the grill from the air conditioner to expose the chassis (or guts). The chassis will slide to right out of the sleeve or the metal housing that is installed through the wall.

• There are vents on the side of the air conditioner so it can breathe; they cannot be blocked. If the outside of your home is brick or you have a cinder block construction, the vents can become blocked, causing the air conditioner to improperly function. With this type of construction, a true through-the-wall air conditioner is recommended.
