Hi, I just installed my first window air conditioner, GE AMG0LJ. The window
frame is metal and the AC installation
kit is for a wood window frame. does anybody sell AC installation kits for
metal window frames .
BTW, the GE AMG0LJ 6,000BTU is very quite and high efficiency
How about some clarification. In the subject line, you say "Storm Window
Frame" but now you say it is a metal window.
Where I live the storm window sits outside the regular double hung window.
Sometimes the bottom of the storm frame is higher than the sill inside. You
just cut a piece of wood the proper thickness to raise it up equal or
slightly above the storm frame. Cut the wood to length and lay it between
the two windows. Use a 1 x 3 or a 2 x 4 or whatever you need.
If you are talking metal frame inside windows, different story. If it is a
typical double hung, you drill a hole in the frame and use a sheet metal
screw to hold in on top of the AC expander frame.
Unless the metal is real thick, don't be suprised if the window starts
buzzing like mad when the AC kicks on. Metal on metal is often real noisy.
Personally, if there was a painless way to lay a board in there to be the
weight-bearing surface for the AC unit, I would do it. Think of it as a
