Window A/C Support Bracket$45.00
Your building requires window A/Cs to have brackets
Your city or neighborhood requires window A/Cs to have brackets
Your windows are old and/or damaged, and are not structurally sound
In most cases, July’s installation frame gives your unit the support it needs. But if your landlord, building, or municipality requires a bracket, get this.
Not sure if you need a bracket?
July has been designed with an installation frame that is capable of securing July in your window. When properly installed, our patented window frame creates a secure hold within your window that does not require exterior support.
However, some buildings require exterior brackets for window A/Cs. Not sure? Ask your building management or a neighbor for more information. If you look up and others in your building all have a bracket, there’s a good chance it is a requirement of your building.
Similarly, check with your local government to see if it’s a requirement in your area. Contrary to popular belief, New York City does not require brackets - only that you install your window A/C in a secure manner. July’s installation frame does the trick.
Old windows, new bracket.
Beautiful, old windows bring character to your home. But they also might not be in the best structural shape. Any window A/C, July included, puts some pressure on the window frame. If you’re worried about the structural integrity of your window, adding a bracket can bring you extra piece of mind.
Installing your bracket.
This A/C Safe Bracket is installed on the exterior of your window, so you will require some clearance and the ability to drill into the exterior of the window frame.
The bracket works with walls from 4 inches to 11 inches thick, and can carry up to 80 lbs - sufficient for either your Small or Medium July.
If you purchase a bracket and opt for your white-glove installation service, our professionals will install your bracket alongside your A/C at no additional charge.
Curious about what the bracket installation will entail? Learn more.
The support bracket comes with all the parts required to complete the installation. However, you will need a powerdrill to secure the bracket to the exterior of your window sill.
First, you’ll assemble the two arms of your bracket. One arm acts as a ledge for the A/C; the other one is at a diagnoal to rest against the exterior of your building.
Then, you’ll drill a raiser into the exterior of your window sill for your bracket to sit on. Depending on how high the lip of your window is, you may need to drill in more than one. Your bracket will come with 3, just in case.
After that, you’ll place the bracket on top of the raisers and secure it into the raisers with the provided screws.
Once your bracket is in place, you’ll make sure that the diagonal arm is resting securely against the exterior of your building.
How July’s installation frame supports the unit:
Our patent-pending frame is comprised of a steel center that can securely hold the weight of your unit. We provide screw holes to secure your A/C laterally against the base of your window frame, and vertically, affixed to your sliding window frame.
In most cases, the July Installation Frame will be all the support your A/C needs in your window. We recommend inspecting your window to ensure you have a compatible window format before purchasing. We also recommend ensuring a smooth base area window ledge, or supplementing any groove with our riser blocks.
