Questions & Reviews

12,000 BTU Window-Mounted Room Air Conditioner is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A comfortable home Few homes in the Pacific North West have central air as it isn't often required. Late July though September we have some above 90 F days that are very uncomfortable I have an open living room, dining room and kitchen area at one end of the house. I installed the window air conditioner in an outside wall window which is central to the great room. I close all the bedroom doors which is about half the square footage of my home. The 12000 BTU unit keeps the great room area at a comfortable 73 F on a 90 F plus day. Once the sun goes down and it cools off, can open up the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ac! I bought this unit about a month ago, and I wish I had done it years ago. I live in the top floor of an apartment building with poorly ventilated attic. Everyone’s heat rises to me, plus the heat from he roof... let’s just say, in the dead of northeastern summer, the temperature in my living room reaches 96F. Not anymore. This unit cools off my 500 sq ft room quickly and efficiently and for a change I don’t dread coming home on a hot summer day. It’s a little noisy, but ok for a 12K BTU unit. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and powerful. My second purchase of this unit. First one lasted 8 yrs. before developing a freon leak somewhere in the far back corner of the coil. Otherwise I am sure it would have run may more years. The opening I have required the compact cabinet size and yet needed capability to cool a 600sq.ft. area. Our Dallas summers tend to be in the upper 90’s into low 100’s from May to mid October. The first unit did a very good job as does the new one. I just set the temp to 77 and forget it. This space is a garage/hobby workshop and the A/C recovers nicely even when I drive in a hot vehicle. I did lots of shopping and this unit was the only one I found that met the size and power requirements. Great little unit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cools efficiently and great remote This 12,000 BTU air conditioner / fan is perfect for my 3rd floor home studio. It's still very new but so far I'm pleased with it's quiet cooling capacity. Having the remote to turn it on and off, switch between cooling and fan, adjust fan speed or energy saving is a great asset. A couple of times on weekends it has gone off for no apparent reason unless neighbors using power tools interrupted the circuit, but it didn't affect our circuit breakers. I turned it off and on and it came back on, so I will just have to keep my eye on it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps us quite cool. Have been using this for about a month and find it to work well. It doesn't make much noise, although a bit more than the 8,000 unit we had from the same manufacturer, but that's to be expected. It was hard to pick up, as it is quite heavy/awkward, but two of us managed to install it in our bedroom window. If put on "cool" , the fan does NOT cycle on and off . This is good so as not to interrupt sleep. Cools down to 60 degrees. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Single Best Investment I've Ever Made I live in the desert, so it regularly reaches 105+ degrees F every single day for months during the summer. Our rental house has a vent system with evaporative cooling; however, if there is any bit of humidity, the system doesn't work at all. Monsoon season is completely unbearable, and our poor main living space had no possible way to cool down (the bedroom and office both have smaller Frigidaire AC units). All I can say is WOW, did this unit exceed my expectations. I was worried it would be ugly because of the online photos, but it actually fit in the front living room window perfectly and blends in aesthetically, such that it's barely noticeable in just about any window. Installation could not possibly have been easier; I didn't even need to look at the directions. There is plenty of packing and various pieces included for insulation to fit anyone's needs. Of course, the unit is heavy and large, and most of its volume is outside (thank goodness), but if you're worried about outside aesthetics you shouldn't be shopping for a window unit anyway.
