This weekend we will be installing a window AC Unit in the wall of my bedroom. If we put the face framing against the studs, it barely comes out of the wall far enough to get sufficient air. But people have told me i need to install drywall first, in the event i need to replace the air conditioner. But if i install drywall first, it will block some of the side vents. So can i install the ac unit before drywall, and just butt the drywall up to the sides? Leave the screws exposed for easy removal, or even just put trim over the face frame like a picture frame?
