Mounting A/C's
« on: July 24, 2012, 10:43:46 AM »
I have three small A/C units (6,000 btu's) for which I need to install mounting brackets in 3 separate windows.  Do you know or can you recommend any individual or local shop in Jackson Heights that can do this kind of a small job?  Thanks.

You could try Weston Bros in Forest Hills, but it won't be cheap.

Sears replaced a small unit of mine.  The company that installed it was:  Independent Appliance Installers 1-800-326-8738.

Carl installed my unit.  He was very neat and concerned that he not damage or scratch anything.  I don't know what they would charge since my installation was part of a warranty replacement.  I would definitely call them if I needed a re-install.

I recommend offering to pay your super to do it.

as of last year, our super was told he's not permitted to install units for us. we ended up using Butler, in Jamaica. efficient, on time, polite and expensive. (718) 291-4838 (they don't seem to have an online presence.

Our super was also not allowed to install units, due to liability issues. So I hired a super from another building. Unfortunately, I don't have the contact info anymore, but you could ask around to supers of nearby buildings if yours is not allowed to do it for your own building.
