Universal Fit for Existing Thru-the-Wall Sleeves
Forget complex retrofits -- Uni-Fit can replace virtually any thru-the-wall air conditioner, from a sleeve designed to fit a standard 26” opening to one as small as 24 ½”. It’s also an excellent value for new installations. It can mount flush with an exterior wall for a clean look so you keep your window view.
Choose from cooling-only or cooling with supplemental electric heat models. All models come with a remote control for convenient operation.
How Can Uni-Fit Work in So Many Spaces?
Uni-Fit’s smaller dimensions fit a range of sleeve sizes. Depending on your sleeve, there may be a gap of up to 1” on the sides and 1/2” on top between the unit and the existing sleeve. The included universal-fit trim ring covers the gap easily for a neat, finished appearance.
Solid-Side Sleeves for Installations in Thicker Walls
Unlike solid-side thru-the-wall air conditioners, window air conditioners have side vents. Covering these vents (as shown to the right) can restrict air flow, diminish performance and could even void your warranty so we strongly advise against it. Our solid-side sleeve has no side vents. You can install it through walls without compromising performance.
Comfort & Convenience
Durability & Quality
When should you install a solid-side sleeve?
Installations through a thicker wall can block traditional room/window air conditioners’ side vents, reducing performance and potentially voiding your warranty. A solid-side sleeve eliminates this problem and gives you the option to install the unit either flush with the outside wall or with a slimmer interior profile.
Can I install Uni-Fit in a window?
Uni-Fit can be installed only thru-the-wall. Window kits are not available for this line. To help you decide which installation is best for you, why not review our window models and compare?
Is a thru-the-wall installation quieter than a window installation?
That depends on a number of factors: how it’s installed and the amount of soundproofing and insulation in the room. Units installed in rooms with wall insulation and tightly sealed windows will be quieter than the same unit installed in an garage without insulation soundproofing. Proper window installations can be very quiet, but windows are more susceptible to vibration.
What do you mean by “Universal Fit?”
A Uni-Fit’s 24" wide x 15 ½" high x 16 ¾" deep design fits into 24½", 26" and 27" sleeves, including many from our competitors. To ensure a neat, finished appearance, we include a two-piece trim ring that covers up to a 1" gap between the top of the unit and the sleeve and up to a ½" gap on the sides.
