How do I assemble and install the wall sleeve for my Koldfront built in air conditioner?

A window air conditioner listed as "built in" or "through the wall" is intended to be built into a wall as opposed to secured into a window opening.  In order to be properly installed, what is referred to as a "wall sleeve" must be utilized.  When properly installed, a wall sleeve creates the required housing for the air conditioning unit, holds the unit securely in place and creates a proper seal between the inside and outside of your home.

NOTE: Not intended for use with a standard window air conditioner unit.  Window mounted air conditioner units are vented thru the side of the unit, while a through the wall air conditioner is vented through the back of the unit.  Installing a window unit into a wall sleeve will inhibit the ability of the unit to properly vent.
