Installing a new home air conditioning system can be difficult, especially if homeowners are not sure what to look for in their systems. They may be confused about whether they should select a window mounted or a wall mounted type of system. Fortunately, however, there are distinct differences between these two types of systems, which can help homeowners determine what will suit their needs best.
Both systems have their own unique types of chassis that keep all of the internal mechanics functioning properly, while protecting them from outside elements. Window systems feature a fixed chassis, while wall systems feature a sliding one. What is a fixed chassis? This type of chassis is designed to securely fit around the unit and stay there until it is manually opened. It is exclusively available for window mounted units. A sliding chassis, which is also known as a slide out chassis, is one that is designed for wall mounted units. It is chosen for such units so that it can be easily removed without having to remove the unit itself from the wall, especially after a difficult installation. With a window mounted system, you do not have to worry about it.
There are many other differences between these two types of installations that all homeowners should consider as well. To begin with, window installations are typically easier, as all that you have to do is mount the air conditioner and secure it. With a wall installation, you will need to cut out a section of your wall in order to fit the air conditioner.
Additionally, depending on your interchangeability and lighting needs, you may consider choosing either the wall mounted or window mounted system. A wall mounted system can help you retain use of your window, and there are some window systems that are designed to fit into the wall.
