Looking For A New GE Air Conditioner
With dozens of ENERGY STAR qualified models, GE wall air conditioners and window air conditioners are among the most energy-efficient air conditioners available. GE thru wall air conditioners offer clean lines, smooth curves and a contemporary design, and are available in a soft, neutral beige.

How to Choose a Room Air Conditioner
Compared to large capacity central units, room air conditioners have several advantages. The initial cost of a room air conditioning unit is significantly lower than the cost of central air. Because room air conditioners are designed for cooling small spaces, operating costs are reduced. And, room air conditioners can provide personalized temperature and humidity controls that central systems cannot.

Calculating Cooling Capacity
Cooling capacity is the critical factor in properly selecting a room air conditioner. Cooling capacity is measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs) and typical models will range in capacity from 5,000 BTUs to 28,500 BTUs.

Choosing an undersized unit will overwork the unit and it will not cool properly. Choosing an over-sized unit will cost more to buy and operate and it will not dehumidify properly.

We can help you to calculate capacity. Be prepared to provide specific information on:
  • Room Dimensions
  • A simple floor plan to show the location of doors and north-facing windows
  • The number of people it will serve
  • Sources of heat such as lamps, TV and appliances
  • An explanation of what's above the intended room
  • Your insulation provisions

Cooling Capacity by Room Size
Measure the length and width of the area to be cooled. Multiply the length by the width to determine square footage or square meters. Locate the room size in the chart below to select the appropriate BTUs. Then use the product information to select the unit for your room. When cooling rooms with uninsulated ceilings, great rooms, or southern or western sun exposures - step up to the next BTU size.

Air Conditioner Tips
Air flow - Keep air filters clean. Do not block air flow areas.

Roomside view - J-models feature concealed power cord storage, this eliminates excessive cord exposure when receptacle is located close to unit.

Wall Opening for RAB46/47/48 Cases
A finished opening of 26 1/8" x 15 3/4", clear of intrusions, is required. Keep clearance of 4" from side walls. Brick veneer or frame walls should have wood studding surrounding case to provide firm anchoring with screws. Case can be fastened directly to brick or block walls with screws sunk in lead expansion shields. NOTE: units should be caulked on all four sides of case to the building exterior to assure building integrity.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just Installed, Unless it Fails, Very Satisfied Let me start by saying the unit is finally installed and working, thankfully. It blows good cold air, it’s pretty quiet for its size especially on ‘low cool” and is relatively energy efficient. The sleep mode and “timer” modes seem like they’ll be useful in saving electricity. “Sleep” is a one-button option that tells the A/C to raise the temperature very gradually through the night, and the timer option turns the A/C on or off after the time period of your choosing. I would presume that many buyers of this unit, like me, are replacing an old GE through the wall unit, using the existing hole in the wall. That saves a lot of money/effort on resizing a hole but the new A/C is quite expensive. My old A/C was ancient, non-functioning and badly rusted, even the old sleeve was in need of replacement, so I did. I was glad to find this replacement. My installation was substantially complicated by the fact that my home is 100 years old and constructed of clay block, with lathe/plaster inside and stucco outside. I sure didn’t want to resize that area to save a few bucks on the unit. At any rate, I wrestled the old rusted A/C out from its sleeve, cut the old sleeve out with a circular saw (a farmer told me to use an old blade meant for wood, but put it in the saw backwards, which worked great!), tidied up the hole a little bit with fresh mortar, and installed the new sleeve which I attached at the bottom with a couple concrete screws (I had to drill holes in the sleeve and also in the clay block). The A/C slid in nicely, thankfully. Now I just have repair to the plaster inside, and a couple tiny stucco patches and caulk outside. Plus some paint. Now, unless you’ve done this before, what you need to do is read the manual/instructions first, fully, before you even begin. It will save you some heartache later. Unfortunately, the instructions are mediocre at best. Believe it or not my biggest issue was, after all the grunt work removing the old unit, the old sleeve, tidying up the hole, installing the new sleeve and the A/C unit – was attaching the grill to the unit! It simply would not attach simply! Well, nowhere did it say that the grill won’t attach with the A/C fully slid into the sleeve. You have to slide it back out a little bit first. Man did I struggle with such a trivial task. Plus the two machine screws that attach the grill to the A/C unit were clearly too thin, thus a trip to the hardware store. There were other issues with the manual. Why are there a couple parts on the sleeve that seem to serve no purpose? The steel clip on the left rail? The little bracket on the bottom? I’ll probably never know, but as long as I get cold air and the thing does not fall out of the wall, I don’t care. But it would be nice to know. Bottom line…. If you are completely unhandy, go ahead and order this thing but not until you have arranged for installation help. If you, like me, are at least kind of handy, go ahead and give it a go. Your installation in a wood framed house will probably be easier than what I was faced with. But read the manual fully first. A few more notes…. If you are in doubt between the 6500 BTU and 8200 BTU unit, go with the 8200 BTU option. The remote works well if you can read its tiny print, which my 58-year-old eyes cannot. There does seem to be enough sponge and stuff built in to the unit and the sleeve to eliminate vibration. AJ Madison did replace the first sleeve that I received that was badly damaged. All in all. If there was a 4.5 star option that’s what I would give it. Not quite perfect. But there is not so I am gonna give the benefit of the doubt. It’s really hot outside right now, I am comfortable and I believe that the unit and its installation are good for 20 years or so and will satisfy whoever lives next in this old house. 7/13/13
