Similarly, you may ask, what is the difference between through the wall and window air conditioner?
A window air conditioner is a small air conditioner designed to be placed within the boundaries of a window frame. A wall air conditioner is similar to a window air conditioner, but is not intended to be placed in a window. Wall air conditioners sit directly within a building's wall.
Likewise, does a window air conditioner have to be in a window? Unfortunately, window units are specifically designed to operate mounted in a window. They expel warm air and water as byproducts of the cooling process, and there is no way to redirect these things if you attempt to run the unit anywhere other than a window.
Herein, do you need a sleeve for wall air conditioner?
Through-the-wall air conditioners do not come with a sleeve. The sleeve is sold separately. These units only vent through the rear of the air conditioner.
Should a window air conditioner be tilted?
Many window units require a very slight tilt away from the building to keep condensation in the drip pan outside the room, rather than puddling down the wall inside your home. Typically, the tilt shouldn't be more than one-half of an inch, but check the installation guide for the manufacturer's recommendation.
