We are looking at room air conditioners. I have sized the unit needed using the worksheets on, but here's my problem:

We have a sliding window in the room (21"H x 22"W) and were hoping to get a window A/C unit, since they seem to have the highest EERs, most features, and good prices. Can you adapt a unit intended for a double-hung window (as most of the units seem to be) to a sliding window installation? Is it difficult or are there kits available? I can't find much on the manufacturers' web sites about this. I'm toying with the idea of having a trusted handyman do it...

Thanks in advance!

I would suggest installing the window unit (sash) into an outside wall in the room, easily done and you dont lose/alter window... plus you can install in a position thats not as obvious so you dont look at the less than attrctive a/c. erik

Thank you! I guess I assumed that putting it thru a wall was more involved since you have to make a hole for it...
