you want to cool. Then choose a window
that will
allow the air-conditioned
air to flow freely and
directly
into the room(s)
you want cooled.
Remember,
it’s difficult
to move air around corners.
Choose
a window
that’s also near an electrical
outlet.
(Refer to ELECTRICAL
REQUIREMENTS
for receptacie
and wiring needed.)
Do not use an
extension
cord. The window
in which you place
your air conditioner
should have an opening
of at
least 26 inches in width and at least 18 inches in
height.
