Sliding Window / July 22, 2018 / Christabel Gosselin
People usually think that the air conditioner installation needs some great expertise but in reality it is much easy more so in the case of sliding ACs. Precautions. The window ACs are bulky so you should lift them firmly but carefully without exerting any pressure on its cooling parts which could cause you injury. Materials and few tools you may need during the installation of air conditioner: A screwdriver A support arc A level Few Wood screws Some foam weather stripping.
To install the track you need a secure surface to mount it too. Make sure your blinds came with all the parts you will need like bracket screw mountings for wood installation. Some paper windows come with a swivel bracket so they can be opened horizontally and pivoted open. You need a minimum distance between the swivel and the walls to allow the doors to open. The number of tracks roughly equates to how solid the window covering will be.
Next you need to install the head rail. Just like the lower track the pivot brackets must be a few inches from the wall. Sometimes you may need more than one track to cover a room. This also allows the window panels to be stacked upon each other. If you want to add an additional valance to the mix make sure you use one that is deigned for that window panel. Otherwise it will not fit correctly.
