How to Install an Air Conditioner in a Sliding Window

  • Are you looking to beat the summer heat with a new air conditioner? Installing an air conditioner in a sliding window is a convenient and efficient way to keep your home cool and comfortable. At Oxbury Warehouse, with store locations in London, Ontario, and Mississauga, Ontario, we're here to provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to install your air conditioner properly.

    What You'll Need:

    Air conditioner unit

    Measuring tape
    Step-by-Step Installation Guide:

    Measure Your Window: Start by measuring the width of your sliding window. Most air conditioners are designed to fit standard window sizes, but it's essential to double-check the dimensions to ensure a proper fit.

    Prepare the Window: Open the sliding window as wide as possible. Remove any screens or obstacles that may obstruct the installation process.

    Install the Brackets: Attach the brackets included with your air conditioner to the top and bottom of the window frame. These brackets will provide support for the air conditioner unit and help secure it in place.

    Mount the Air Conditioner: Lift the air conditioner unit and carefully place it on the window sill, making sure it rests securely on the brackets. Slide the window closed against the unit to create a tight seal.

    Secure the Unit: Use the screws provided with the installation kit to secure the air conditioner unit to the window frame. Make sure the unit is level and flush with the window frame to prevent air leaks.

    Seal Any Gaps: Use weather-stripping or foam insulation to seal any gaps between the air conditioner unit and the window frame. This will help prevent hot air from entering your home and improve energy efficiency.

    Test the Air Conditioner: Plug in the air conditioner unit and turn it on to ensure it's working correctly. Adjust the temperature settings as needed to achieve your desired level of comfort.
