Our through the wall sleeve air conditioner no longer functions. It is
about 35 years old & time for a replacement. This is a condo, we have one
in the front room & one in the back, in our computer room. The current unit
is 8500 BTUs in a 170 sqft room plugged into a 220 outlet.
We have located several choices that appear to fit. In particular, two
units, a 8,000 & a 13,200 BTU that we can purchase & bring home today.
The 8000 BTU is a 110 & would be on the same circuit as the computers.
The 13200 unit is 220 & would be on it's own circuit.
Problem ONE: How the hell do I get the old one out?!? It seems to be in
there solid, VERY solid. Any suggestions are welcome & I understand that
answering this one without seeing it is difficult.
Problem TWO: the 13200 BTU unit is overkill I am sure. However, keeping it
on it's own circuit is necessary. Is there such a thing as an adapter to go
from the 220 to the 110?
