“Before you take the unit out of the box, make sure you have a friend handy to help with the installation. Air-conditioner units are clumsy objects, and you don’t want your brand-new appliance falling out during installation and landing on the ground below. If you have double-hung widows, installation should be simple. It may be necessary to assemble the unit’s window extensions; some models have these already installed. Other models utilize special brackets for window attachment.”
