Installing air conditioner with new windows
Original Message   Jun 10, 2005 7:24 pm
I have a problem. We bought new Champion Windows. They only open 11+ inches and I need 12+ to put in an air conditioner. I called Champion and they told me to take out the stops which I did. After doing that my windows still opened the same amount due to a roller that is screwed in. I am trying to figure out how to create enough space. Any ideas?

Hi...

Maybe call Champion again... ? 

Any way to "squeeze" the A/C's case to fit ? ...Maybe a new/shorter A/C ?

Despite the high cost of living, have you noticed how it remains so popular.

Is there a sill plate on the window bottom that can be removed to give you the space you need?

It isn't possible to move the roller and inch is it?

Boy what a hard time I had getting casement airconditioners into my bedrooms.  I wish I could see what you are talking about.
