While the report covers only New York City buildings, the problem extends across the nation, said Russell Unger, executive director of the Urban Green Council, the New York affiliate of the United States Green Building Council. (The national council is best known for bestowing the LEED seal of approval on environmentally friendly buildings.)

And while the heat loss matters more in areas with long winters like the Northeast, Mr. Unger said, cool air also leaks out when the units are in use in hot weather, resulting in higher electricity costs.
"This is something under everyone's noses, and it's totally overlooked," he said. "It's an issue in every building that doesn't have central air."
The report is based on tests by Steven Winter Associates, a building-design consulting firm, on three types of units commonly used in the city: the window-mounted air-conditioner that is a fixture of prewar buildings; the air-conditioner that sits in a metal sleeve in the wall; and a packaged-terminal air-conditioner that protrudes into the room and is usually permanently installed at the time of construction.
In all 11 buildings tested in the city, building engineers found that each poorly fitted and poorly sealed unit left a gap equivalent to a hole roughly 2 inches by 3 inches - "about the size of your fist if you punched a hole in the wall," as Mr. Unger put it.
