All you need to do to install a window air conditioner is make sure you pick a window that has the correct power receptacle under or at least within the air conditioner's power cord. Some are 110 volts others are 220 volts. Then insert the window air conditioner into the window and plug it in.

Install mounting brackets onto the windowsill. Adjust center screw to level. Open window. Slide unit over the sill and onto the mounting brackets. Close window to the top of the conditioner casing. Secure sashes to each other with angle brackets. Use foam to insulate gaps. Tilt unit slightly for drainage.

Follow the manufacturer's instructions as well as tips from experienced people. If you don't have the instructions, the manufacturer's website probably will have a copy, perhaps in PDF. Otherwise, call or write requesting a new copy if your schedule allows, or get one from the place you bought the AC.

To install a window air conditioner you must measure for a proper fit. After checking the fit you prop air conditioner on the lower sill and close the window on top insuring that it will not fall out. You then expand the sides the slides on the sides to insure a proper seal and plug it in.
