Your asking for professional installation advice on a Mfg Screen on a Forum dedicated to DIY Screen projects that do not include the use of Mfg Screens. That's why you've gotten no response.
Your Contractor who will install the Screen should be the one who hooks it up to the 110 ac.
As happens so often, the Cart came before the Horse. If the Screen you have is a Cosmopolitan Electrol, the screen's "Rough-In" Casing should have been installed prior to the Sheet Rock. To effect installation at this point will require removal of more drywall than the size of the casing, additional framed Bracing added at each end, a re-edging of Drywall and Finishing/Painting...then you insert the Motorized Screen.
Heat will not be your problem. Really...the Screen only operates for a few seconds going up or down. No...mounting it level...the bottom correctly flushed with the Drywall...lots of other concerns take precedent.
Just get the A/V Installer you plan to use out there to overview the situation. If he's anybody who know even a little bit about these things, he'll clue you in. But steel your wool and open the wallet...it will be costing you far more now than it would have had these questions been asked some time ago.
I feel your pain and confusion. Send me a Private Message that includes the Mfg Name and Model of your Screen. I'll advise you best I can so that when your Contractors show up you'll not come away feeling inadequate....at best. I can only imagine what the types of responses...or lack thereof you have already received. People sometimes tend to get exasperated on the Forums when a seemingly hopeless or misdirected post is offered up. On DIY Screens we often hold the hand of NOObs. This is not a DIY project, so a PM to me will help get you some advice that doesn't run counter to this Forums intent.
