The first thing that you need to remember is the size of the space before the actual purchase and installation of the air conditioner. This allows you to assess the AC’s ability accordingly

Measure the size of the window where the AC will be mounted and search for sufficient electrical service afterwards. Ensure that the foundation of the window and the sill are in a good shape and are solid enough to withstand the unit’s weight. In some circumstances, you can be allowed to obtain an AC installation permit.

In addition to the air conditioner, measuring tape, metal brackets and other support frames, caulking gun and waterproof caulk, screwdrivers and foam insulation strips are all the stuff you need for the air conditioning installation.

You need to first set up the mounting hardware that includes sill mounted supports for installing the air conditioner. Open the window and follow the step-by-step instructions given for installing the unit by the manufacturer.

Make sure you put it at a tilt to ensure proper condensation when screwing the bracket to the sill. Sheet sheet metal screws are used for metal brackets.

Now lift and set the air conditioner on the bracket. To allow easy sliding into the window opening, the modern air conditioners are fitted with pockets under the unit. To set it in place, move the window on top of the unit.
