All you do is cut a piece of plexiglass to size of the window (a lot of people use the screen as a template) and then cut a hole the size of the exhaust hose in the plexiglass. You then attach the hose to the plexiglass and put the plexiglass in the window. Now you can simply crank out the casement window. This allows you to vent the hot air out while the plexiglass prevents heat from coming back in.
Technically you can do this with just about any material, but most like plywood, are not as attractive.
I can't answer the questions about the hose and slider issues. However, regarding the noise factor, I've got the 8K BTU model and don't find it especially noisy. It just hums away quietly in my home office. I find that the sound the AC emits Is actually rather soothing.
We recommend that you only plug the exhaust hose into the slider, you don’t want to plug the intake hose on the slider if it’s over 90 degrees outside, because the air you are taking in, is going to be too hot. But, If you want both hoses to plug into the slider you'll have to drill an extra hole on the slider.
As far as the noise most PAC units are about 54 decibels.
Thank you for your question!
Hope this helps
