Answer: 
This unit is 21 1/8 inches wide. Once you install the slides (wings) it would be too wide for your 22" window. Depending on the type of window you have, you may be able to support without the slides. But make sure you can secure window to prevent movement while this unit is installed.

Answer: 
Through the wall installation is NOT recommended. This unit does NOT have the necessary support hardware (sleeve, etc) to keep it safely installed through the wall. Additionally, there are exhaust vents located on the left and right sides (towards the rear of unit) that may be blocked if through the wall installation is attempted.

Customer Reviews

Aros App-Enabled 8,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job, but wouldn't buy it again A little late with this review, since I bought this unit 2 years ago. It works well enough to cool off my small bedroom and hallway. However, the display lights are so BRIGHT I have to tape multiple pieces of paper over them (like little flaps) so I can sleep at night. Considering part of the reason I liked this AC was its sleek design, I was pretty annoyed. App connected to the device but doesn't accurately represent the room temp or whether the AC is on/off (so you don't actually know if you're turning it on or off remotely, on your way home from work perhaps). If the box wasn't already tossed, I would have returned this AC.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stopped cooling during first season of use! Purchased last July. Because of remodeling it took until this Spring to be installed. I love the idea, the app control, and the look. The noise doesn't bother me because its more powerful than my old unit. But now my old unit is doing all the work because this device no longer blows cold air. I am in the process of contacting Quirky about getting it replaced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AC WORKED FOR ONE SEASON AND BROKE ON THE HOTTEST DAY. BOUGHT IN SUMMER OF 2015. WORKED GOOD FORST YEAR. INSTALLED IT FOR SUMMER OF 2016 WORKED FOR 1 WEEK AND STOPPED COOLING REMOVED FRONT COVER AND FOUND ICE FORMING INSIDE AND THEN IT BRAKES OFF AND HITS THE FAN AND SHOOTS OUT OF THE VENT. AC NO LONGER COOLS JUS MAKES ICE INSIDE. WORST AC I EVER OWNED.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wi-Fi enabled AC I've had two units for two years now and I am remarkably pleased with the performance and reliability of the unit and the integrated apps on my phone and Wink relay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Had this ac for over a year it cools my whole apartment over 1000 square feet. On Eco mode electric bill has not increased too much.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Look elsewhere I wanted to like this AC. I really did. But, I didn't. It really isn't as good as it looks. It is rough, loud and just plain doesn't do all that well. The thing didn't break in the 4 months I needed, but it just didn't perform any better than another cheap AC. This one had an app, true, but other than turning on the AC remotely, it had zero advantage over one that is cheaper. When I bought mine, I read reviews that said the same thing. I bought it anyway. If you want to have a connected home, keep looking. The Qurky Aros is a poor choice for getting connected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best AC EVER! I have a few of these. they have functioned flawlessly and do a great job. I control them all in a group from the app and it works just like central A/C. Can't say enough good things about it. Don't listen to the bad reviews! They're doing it wrong if they don't like them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NO WARRANTY OR REPAIR SUPPORT!! Had installed for 8 months. Then it just died, still under warranty. Phone is disconnected and they do not respond to emails. It is now a BOAT ANCHOR !!!
