Sliding Window / July 28, 2018 / Burrell Lebel
You will have to choose a window with an electrical socket nearby in order to connect the air conditioner unitproperly. Remove any furniture or obstacles near the window which could impede air flow. You must thoroughly check the window sill to see if it will act as a stable base for air conditioner unit. You will have to replace it if it is cracked or corrupt before you proceed with installation of the unit. Now install the metal brackets use to support the AC at a level which is set for it. These brackets need to be nailed at the center.
These windows offer beauty convenience and a virtually unobstructed view of the outdoors. They are also extremely strong and almost completely weather and damage resistant. Although any material exposed to weather requires upkeep vinyl sliding windows are virtually maintenance free. In some cases a heavy rain fall will do the job. If you do need to give them extra attention all that is needed is a soft cloth or soft bristle brush with a product recommended by the window manufacturer.
Always be sure to avoid abrasive cleaners such as cleansers and products containing bleach as they can affect the vinyl surface or the caulking around the window. Also avoid using a power washer or hard spraying hose as this too can damage the caulk. Besides occasional exterior cleaning the tracks and runners on your vinyl sliders should be checked every few weeks to make sure they are clear of debris. Vinyl sliding windows glide horizontally and open the full length of the window.
