How Do I Remove Remove an Old Through the Wall Air Conditioner?

Hi, Here's how most typical ptacs can be removed: 1. From the room side of the ptac (not outside part) remove the front cover. Try gently pulling the bottom, then lifting up. 2. Usually there are four screws, one at each corner that hold the ptac into the sleeve: remove these screws. 3. Slide the ptac out from the sleeve. Note: Before installing the new ptac, make sure the gaps between the exterior wall and the sleeve are sealed. You might want to re-caulk certain areas to make sure there are no gaps where cool air could escape. Also, make sure the newly installed ptac unit is level so condensate water does not leak into the room. I hope that helps! Regards, David

If u need to cool more then 1 room then u need whats called averaging relay and a temp. sensor in each room u need to cool.This relay will take all sensor readings and run unit based on the average of that.Usually used in commercial buildings

5. What is the best option for replacing an old, very large, wall air conditioner?

I would consider the following option. Get rid of the old AC on the wall and hire a handyman to cover the wall unless you are handy yourself. The old AC is probably a 220volts type of AC around 10,000 to 12,000 BTUs since it covers so much square footage (22'x25'). I would buy a window unit for each room and installed in a window. Buy something like a 5,000 BTU with a 110-120volt for each room. The AC will cost around $175-$200 each or less if you find them on special. If your house has a high ceiling than you will need a little bigger AC with more BTUs but maintain the 110-120volts for electric bill savings. Not only will you save but also control the temp in each room individually. Good Luck!

8. how do i remove an old wall air conditioner?

I like boss dogs answer. My neighbor had a "built in" ac, too. I am not sure how they got it out, but they ended up installing a window and it looks good. I would check for nails in the trim and pull that out and score around the caulking with a utility knife on both sides and try to loosen it and push it out. You may want to see if the front of the AC can be removed. It could be that it's framed in too. If did not give a rip, I would use a reciprocating saw and cut the thing out and be done with it. If you do not put in a window, then you will have to repair the framing, insulate it, find siding that matched and probably do some rearranging with the other siding so it overlaps properly. Then you will have to replace the drywall on the inside. Mud and tape it, sand it, skim coat it and sand some more, prime it and paint the drywall to match the rest. May have to paint the whole wall or maybe the whole room, depending on if you can get paint to match

9. in wall air conditioner,how do u frame studs in the wall?

I frame it so that there is a stud (2x4 or 2x6) all the way around the air conditioner's wall-mount chassis, with perhaps a 1/4-inch of play. If it is a load bearing wall (most outer walls are), then you should make a header and support it with dedicated studs, which I call jackposts. For a 24-inch wide A/C unit, a 2x6 header should be fine. Below is a link to a Web site showing the framing for a window, which is exactly the same as the framing for a through-the-wall A/C. I would frame it slightly differently but this will work fine.

My electricity keeps going out ever since I installed a new wall air conditioner?I would be more than very concerned if I was you. An Air Conditioner is probably the largest consumer of electricity that you have. Some of the larger window units really should have their OWN circuit, with nothing else on it. Short of having an electrician come and install a dedicated circuit for the air conditioner, you really need to move as much as you can off that particular circuit and decide which items you can run while the AC is on, If you cannot figure this one out on your own get help to do it! This is a very dangerous situation, so do not just let it be. A breaker blowing is not something to ignore or just reset. The burned hardwood is only a warning. The next step could be that "huge fire" we will be reading about in the papers.4.

Regarding "through the wall" air conditioner sleeve rear grille...?If the though the wall sleeve HAS a grille, get rid of it.

Should I replace or repair in-wall air conditioner?One thing to consider is that a thru wall unit replacement may not be exactly the same size for the case and you might need to replace the case in the wall. That adds to the cost. Plus there is a charge for disposal. Since the wall a/c units normally will pull out of the case, after removing the faceplate, you can pull it out and take it to a shop for an estimate and/or a repair. They are not light though. Shop rates are cheaper than service in the home. And if you decide to refuse the estimate and get a new one they can handle the disposal, sometimes for free. You have to weigh the repair against the age and condition. You did not say much other than it does not work. Be sure you did the simple thing and make sure there is power there for it because it might be, should be, on it's own circuit. Good Luck.7. WALL AIR CONDITIONER CYCLE OFF AFTER A FEW MINUTES?Set the temperature to a lower number. The reason it may not be putting out cold air is that the temp in the room is the same as the unit is set for. The unit needs to have a lower number than the room for it to put out cold air. And it wo not drip water unless the unit is cooling and taking moisture out of the room air. Once the room air is the same as the unit is set for, it will cycle on and off as needed. It wo not put out cold air all the time! When you had the a/c on the deck, of course it ran all the time, as there was no way it could cool off the whole outdoors! It kept running because it detected a warmer temp than it was set for. I do not know why you put it in an old housing. Did not this one have a housing? I have no idea if that is the problem or not. I doubt it.8. Is it possible that a very old wall air conditioner could have asbestos inside it?If this drip just started you can bet it is not because of the position of the unit. There is a drain hole and usually a line that directs condensation outside. If that drain is plugged the water can drip inside the house. Get that drain cleaned up. Condensation occurs when warm, moist (that "moist" is important) air meets cold air or touches a cold surface. Do you run your AC in the winter?
