Installing a window air conditioner, unlike other types of air conditioning units, isn't that difficult and requires no real specialized training. In fact, this is a project that even the most amateur of do-it-yourselfer's can accomplish in about an hour. While there are many units that you can install by yourself, it is always a good idea to have the help of a friend when doing this project. After all, you don't really want to try and lift that heavy air conditioner all by yourself, do you?
One word of warning. The method for installation presented here is for ground floor units only. If you are going to be installing any units on the second floor, having an assistant is a necessity. In addition to a friend, you will also need to have a good, sturdy ladder that can support your weight and the weight of the air conditioner. If you are considering installing an air conditioner in a third floor window—don't. Hire a professional to do it for you instead.
