High-wall air conditioners are considered one of the best means of cooling any room - small and large, residential and office. If you need to dismantle an air conditioner, we advise you to use the services of qualified specialists, as incorrect dismantling can cause damage or damage to the appliance.

The reasons for dismantling an air conditioner can be very different. In case of damage, need for replacement, cleaning or maintenance, disassembly is required. Also, many people prefer to dismantle split air conditioners during the cold autumn and winter days. Another reason is the removal of unpleasant odors during the hot summer season. The unpleasant odor is caused by the accumulation of water in a special tub in the indoor unit of the air conditioner. As bacteria, mold and other microorganisms grow well in humid conditions, this environment favors their development, and hence the spread of unpleasant odors in the room.

If you are still interested in information on the subject, in a few steps described below, you can gain knowledge on how to dismantle an air conditioner.

Split air conditioners have outdoor and indoor units that are not connected, which facilitates the task of dismantling this type of air conditioner.

It is advisable to wait a few days after the presence of heavy rainfall, as the accumulated water will give rise to a thorough cleaning of the room after dismantling. You will need to get a screwdriver or screwdriver, as well as gloves and waterproof shoes.

A key consideration to consider is to prevent the release of freon into the atmosphere. It must be assembled in the outdoor unit of the appliance. This is done by turning on the air conditioner at the lowest possible temperature in cooling mode, making sure that the compressor is running. For 25-30 seconds, then tap on the smaller pipe must be closed, and subsequently the same must be done with the larger one (located on the outdoor unit of the appliance). During this process, the compressor must function, the appliance is switched off after closing the larger valve from the remote control, and subsequently from the mains. Before removing the air conditioner, make sure that the power is off. Then unplug the appliance.


Place an old towel or rag on the floor where you intend to move the air conditioner after it is dismantled. Even if it has not rained for days, the body of the air conditioner will likely contain water, which can damage your nice wooden floor or newly purchased carpet.


What follows is the removal of the copper tube of the air conditioner that connects the indoor and outdoor unit. It is important to remember to place a bucket or other container under the bodies to avoid spilling the refrigerant slightly. Communication and power cables should be disconnected.


You need to consider the type of attachment of the indoor unit to the panel so as not to damage during disassembly. The indoor unit can be detached from the panel by lifting it. You should remove the panel and set it aside. Another option is to mount it back on the indoor unit of the air conditioner.

Proceed with the disassembly of the outdoor unit of the air conditioner. Sometimes it is mounted higher than the indoor unit, so be careful while removing it and use a secure ladder or other stable auxiliary devices. Get the help of a friend to sit down and warn and protect passers-by and another to help lift the outdoor unit. Warn your neighbors, if any, under your room. Falling an outdoor unit on someone can have serious and sometimes fatal consequences, so you should not ignore these safety considerations. Remove the wires and pipes from the appliance and unscrew it from the wall, or remove it if it is clamped.

After dismantling the air conditioner, a hole will remain in the wall of your room. In case you plan to install a new air conditioner, this hole may be used for the new installation. If you do not plan to install air conditioning in this place, you will need to undertake appropriate repairs to remove it and restore the good condition of the wall.

Whenever you dismantle appliances that are connected to the mains or use toxic liquids for their operation, it is best to seek the qualified help of a professional. When dismantling an old split air conditioner, you must remember that it contains a refrigerant that must be drained properly without damaging the environment.

However, if you decide to dismantle the air conditioner yourself, take all possible precautions. Do not use chairs or other unstable aids to reach the air conditioner. Always use the ladder in case your body is higher. The outdoor units of air conditioners are heavy, and the feeling of heaviness is enhanced by their large volume, so if you have low back problems or other cramps, use the help of another person. Check that the appliance is disconnected from the mains before carrying out any disassembly work. If you are unsure about any aspect of the process, we advise you to consult an expert in the field.
