Unlike window air conditioners, through the wall aircon units can be installed in any non-load bearing wall to provide cooling power to both small and large areas. These AC units do not require windows for installation, but do require cutting out a section of the wall to fit the unit in. 

Factors to Consider Before Purchasing a Wall Air Conditioner

Wall air conditioners range in size, cooling capacity, and energy efficiency. A wall AC unit is suitable for both small and large spaces, without the need for a horizontal sliding window. However, wall air conditioners require drilling and cutting through a wall to fit the unit in. Here are the main factors to consider for wall air conditioners:

Budget

Wall units are no more expensive than window units. However, installation costs may drive up the overall initial price of the unit. Wall air conditioners typically range between $400 to $2,000 depending on the cooling capacity, size, model, and brand of air conditioning unit.

Energy Consumption

Energy consumption levels of through the wall AC units vary depending on the model and cooling power. Inverter units exist, and may conserve as much as 30% of the energy used to run a conventional unit. However, larger, more powerful units may require higher energy consumption for better performance and cooling efficiency. 

Space Requirements

The stark difference between window AC units and wall air conditioners is that the latter has a more complex installation process. Unlike wall-mounted air conditioners, in-wall air conditioners are built through the wall, which requires cutting through a non-load bearing wall to install.

Cooling Power

Wall air conditioners can have a cooling power range from 8,000 BTU to 20,000 BTU (British Thermal Units), powerful enough to cool down a wide range of room sizes. These air conditioners come in inverter models as well to cut down the costs of operating the unit, making them energy efficient.

Maintenance

Wall air conditioners will require a moderate level of maintenance and cleaning. Cleaning the air filter can be done at home, but maintenance and deep cleaning of the internal components must be done professionally at least once every 6 months.
