Hi there, we've got a four-story row house with a few AC window units. Is it a good idea to take out the window units and shut the windows completely during this weekend's possible hurricane?
master builder, that brochure doesn't mention window AC uints. Seems like a good idea to remove them if it looks like we're really going to get hit.

say no to robot answers.
take them in - we lost windows back in gloria (1985) - this one promises to be worse unless it changes direction. flying a/c's would not be good for anyone, lol. at the very least - you'd risk warping the window frames and having windows that don't open smoothly afterward - if the a/c uses the window at all for support.

Take them in as at the very least they will leak. The window will be stronger if it is closed.

Depends on how its installed, but if it's one you threw in with the cheap accordian sides and 3 tiny screws, definitely take it out. It's way too early to know for sure if its going to be needed, but have your tools ready Saturday night just in case...
