Window A/Cs in Thru-Wall Sleeves

It is a common occurrence in condos and apartments with through-the-wall style A/C sleeves to mistakenly replace old/broken units with window air conditioners instead of the proper thru-wall A/C required. One of the many problems that results from this is that window A/Cs are narrower than thru-wall A/Cs and the existing gap not only looks unprofessional, it creates opportunities for unwanted messes. Such as the bird’s nest in the unit pictured below.

There are several other reason not to put a window A/C into a wall-sleeve, including:

  • improper ventilation
  • voided warranty
  • unnecessary extra labour
  • unprofessional and unsightly
