Questions & Reviews

5,000 BTU Window-Mounted Room Air Conditioner is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay... I bought this for my bedroom approximately a month ago. It runs quietly and cools the room nicely. The only problem is when I have it on economy cool, it will shut off (which is good because it saves electricity!),but it doesn't turn back on until it gets quite warm again. I have woken in the middle of the night drenched in sweat.I had to decrease the temperature to get it back on again. It seems it should turn itself back on when the room gets warm. It's hard to get back to sleep after having to change the sheets, turn on the lights and adjust the temperature. A remote that has some sort of background light would be very helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice....but. I bought this air conditioner because of its size. It's very small but efficient at 40 lb. It cools hour 225 square foot bedroom nicely. It is also aided by a ceiling fan. the only problems that we have at the fact that like others have said, it is very loud. that in itself doesn't bother us because we both wear earplugs when we sleep. the bigger problem, is the fact that it's Cycles every 10 minutes for approximately one minute to test the room to see if the air conditioner has to turn on. That does become very annoying. Other than those two things, I do recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so cool a year later I originally thought this unit was good enough for the small room that we have it in. It worked ok when we used it the first time around (last summer) yet it was never as cool as the three other units we have in the house. This year we can hear the compressor turn on but the air is just not cool enough. I'm a working mom so I have to find time to call the service line for support. Really hoping to get some answers since we have this one in my baby's room. The past two night the air condition remote and baby monitor read a temp of 82 degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little AC It was hot, I'm mean HOT and I wanted cool. There were no ACs anywhere except this one. i wanted a bigger one but I wanted cool more, so I purchased it and two others. I put them in the windows and fired them up and I got cool. They are great little ACs and work very well. In smaller rooms, they make it chilly, in larger rooms, not so but they are only 5000 BTU ACs and they do exactly what they should.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Electronic remote controls I purchased a 5000 BTU unit in 6/2014 and it failed when installed into the window in 6/2016. I purchased the same basic unit in 2016 and it failed when it was put back in the window in 6/2018. In both cases the electronic windows didn't light up so I blame the control for the problems. Each unit gave me 2 years of good service and then died. I've moved on to other units with manual controls. Cost of repair was equal to cost of replacement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, but annoying controls This AC cools a room quickly, and doesn't seem too loud. But I hate that it's default setting is economy mode. I never use that, and yet every time I turn the unit off and back on again later, it goes to economy mode. I then have to press two different buttons three times to get it back to where I like it. Terrible design. It should power on to where you left it and where I want it, not where it thinks you should be.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad We bought two 5,000 BTU units for the upstairs. Overall, they're not bad, but even running both they struggle to really cool the space down. If you close one of the bedroom doors, it does cool that room down fairly well. As for being quiet, they're a bit louder than we like, but they're not too loud. Size wise, they're great. Overall, a descent value for money. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install I bought this unit about a month ago during the heat wave and I purchased the last one! It was very easy to install and I did not have use any support on the outside of the window. I also love the remote, because sometimes the room gets too cool when I'm sleeping and I don't have to get out of bed to adjust the temperature. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
