I have a small vertical window and have not been able to locate a window AC
unit that will fit although I have found a couple that would fit if mounted
Vertically rather than horizontally.
My question is can these units be operated when mounted vertically?
NO! Oil will be pumped out of the compressor, and the springs that
support the compressor will be ineffective.
There are various split systems with the airhandler & E-Coil built-in
that mount high on the wall or on the ceiling.
Mr. Slim "below" is only one of them. I would go with that type of
split-system! The decision is yours, not mine!

YES, they work quite well that way (only if it is a new model). Some
can even be operated upside down. Dont try this with an older model.
They wont work that way.
Make sure when you install the unit that the plug is installed upside
down too. Otherwise it wont work.
Hey Bubba, that gives me a new idea for the upstairs... I can just cut a
hole in the ceiling and put the unit thru to the attic... it's hot up there
anyway. What kind of screws should I use to hold it in place?
If the ceiling is drywall, use drywall screws.
If the ceiling is wood, use wood screws.
If the ceiling is sheet metal, use sheet metal screws.
If the ceiling is concrete, use concrete screws.
If the ceiling is phillips, use phillips screws.
I swear, sometimes I start to believe some of the stuff they say about HVAC

Doesnt matter as long as you use the longest screws you can find.
You've gotta make sure you can keep out all the nuts that fall through
the skylight in here. If they get into your attic and then in your
home............heaven help you because there are some real screwballs
that pop in here. Id hate to find em in your home.
