Looking for ac sleeve help

Hey all. I am in need of some air conditioner help. I currently have a 10,000 btu in my living room/jr kitchen. There is no wall separation so its one big room. The 10000 btu is too small. I need a 14000/15000 btu. In my complex we have a through the wall sleeve since our windows open side to side and can't fit an ac. The sleeves model number is BSB000C with the following dimensions 27 x 19 3/4 x 16 3/4. My problem is I cant find any ac within the 14000/15000 range that fit the height requirements. Everything I see is minimum height of 16.90 inches. To make matters even more confusing one one of the electrical sockets in the living room right next to the ac sleeve is a 220 volt socket. So the room is made for a 15000 btu ac but now i'm wondering if the sleeve that was also put in before I moved in is too small. Does anyone have any advice for me? Thanks.

Welcome to the forums.

That is a Fedders "B" chassis sleeve.
I believe the biggest A/C that will fit in there is a Fedders AZ7A12W2A and AZ7A12W7B.

11,800 BTU Through-the-Wall Air Conditioner with 280 CFM, 9.8 EER, LED Display, Remote, 3 Fan Speeds, Energy Star Qualified and 230/208 Volts.

Is this for a house you own, or a place you rent?
I'd be concidering a through the wall A/C, or a mini split.
One that big is likely going to need to be 240 volts and need it's own circuit.

Or adding a two hose portable AC. Regardless of the windows if they open you should be able to make it work. Might be a bit ugly but me, at least, I can handle ugly if I'm cool.

The OP has a sleeve already thru the wall and is trying to match an A/C to it.

Yes, but I meant to supplement the existing A/C.

There is a 240 volt socket right next to the ac. Only issue is the big ones I find wont fit in the sleeve.

I posted the model numbers previously of the only models that will fit.
For a larger A/C you will need a larger sleeve.
