AIR CONDITIONER SAFETY
Installation Safety Instructions
Be sure that the correct breaker is installed. If a breaker is not
installed, it may result in electric shock or other hazards!
Do not install the unit where there might be leakage of
inflammable gasses. In the case that the gasses are leaked out and accumulated
around the unit, it may result in fire hazards or other accidents.
Be sure that the power source of the unit is properly grounded.
The grounding wire of the packaged terminal air conditioner must be firmly connected to
the grounding wire of the power source. Improper grounding will lead to possible electric
shock or other hazards.

To ensure the best performance of the packaged terminal air conditioner, please observe
the following wall sleeve installation procedures and do the installation in accordance with
related requirements.
1. Wall sleeve assembly
• Unpack all parts and accessories, referring to Fig. 1, assemble the wall sleeve by
first “clip-locking” the side pieces to the bottom piece, then the top piece to the
assembled side and top pieces.
• Handle the wall sleeve carefully.
• If the wall sleeve is deformed, chassis installation may be hindered. If the wall
sleeve has become deformed, straighten it before installing it in the wall.
2. Wall sleeve location
When making the wall opening, please observe the following requirements:
• The air inlet and outlet should be unblocked so the air can be delivered to every
corner of the room.
• Install the unit in a location that is away from heat sources or sources of
inflammable gases.
• Install the unit in a location that is not directly exposed to sunlight.
• Do not install the unit in places that are subject to strong wind or dust.
• There should be sufficient space margins around the unit to facilitate maintenance
and repairs (refer to Figs. 2 and 3)

Note: Care should be taken in locating the electrical supply entry in relation to the
sleeve for later access.
Chart 1
3. Preparation of the wall
The sleeve should be installed during construction and lintels should be used to
support the block above the wall sleeve. The sleeve can not support the load of
bricks/blocks.
For existing construction, the wall opening must be created, and the proper
dimensions are necessary to avoid use of fillers or additional framing. The sleeve is
modular in height and width (refer to Fig 4 & Chart 2).
Height:
Fits 2 courses concrete block
Fits 6 courses standard brick
Fits 5 courses Jumbo Brick
Width: fits approximately 3 stud spaces.

If field supplied case angles must be used during installation (Fig 5), proceed as
follows:
•
•
•
•
Position the case angles around top and sides of sleeve to get the proper
depth, (be sure to have the angles pointing outside).
Mark the sleeve using the case angles as a template for screws.
Drill 5/32” hole at the marked position.
Install # 10 x ½” screws from the outside of the sleeve, do not drill any oles in
the base of the sleeve.
4. Installation of the sleeve in the wall opening
• Place sleeve into the wall , refer to Chart 1-D2 for room side projection
(minimum ½” to a maximum 1-3/4” without sub-base). The rear (outside edge of
the sleeve should stick out a min. of ¼” past the outside wall to be able to
caulk properly. Do not seal the drain holes on the outside (grille side) of the
• sleeve. If it is desired to have the rear grille flush on the outside, a drip rail
must be installed under the sleeve and caulking applied between the drip rail
and sleeve.
• To ensure the unit’s maximum efficiency, the sleeve must be installed with a
slight downward pitch from the indoor side to the outdoor side (Fig 6), then
fasten the wall sleeve (Fig 7).
• Lintels should be used to support the block above the wall sleeve (Fig 8). The
sleeve can not support the load of bricks/blocks (if directly under a window sill,
use of lintels may not be necessary).

Note: The fastening parts and wood screws etc. are supplied by the end user.
5. Weather proofing:
Weather proofing gaps between the exterior wall and the sleeve with caulking or other
equivalent weather proofing materials (Fig 9).
Note: Installation in extra thick walls:
•
•
If the sleeve is being installed in a thick wall where the sleeve is recessed more
than 3”, an extended wall sleeve will be required with depths as called out in
chart 1.
If the sleeve is being installed in a wall where the recess is 3” or less, a
flashing must be installed under the sleeve and extend up 2” on each side. The
flashing must include a drip rail as shown in Fig 9.
6. Electrical Requirements
• Provisions should be made to have a proper electrical outlet near the sleeve.
All wiring must be made in accordance with local codes and national electrical
codes. The line cord included with the chassis (if used) will extend to a wall
receptacle located within the area shown in Fig 10.

new installation, contact your dealer to determine if the new chassis should be used with the
nonstandard specialized grille.
