    Hi
    I have an in wall AC probably installed in 70/80s which I plan to remove.
    How were these installed? I assume a lintel or something must be added after they cut out the hole?

    No, I removed a couple.

    No lintel.

    I wonder what the max span you can get away with without a lintel. My air conds were about 3 brick spans.

    I bricked it the hole. Not an easy job to get looking good.
