Questions & Reviews

5,000 BTU Window-Mounted Room Air Conditioner is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cools my bedroom quickly This unit has been a lifesaver this summer. I live on the 2nd floor of an apartment building that doesn't have air conditioning. The unit cools my bedroom down very, very quickly. It blows impressively icy cold air if I set the temperature around 70 degrees. It isn't loud, but it isn't super quiet either. The noise is a pleasant "white noise" in the background, at least to me. My electric bill went up only slightly when I started using this product. I'm talking between $5 and $10. I have nothing but good things to say about it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great AC! I bought this AC a few days ago and had it installed yesterday. I love it! It's small, cute, mostly quiet and can cool my ~175 sq ft room in about 30 minutes so no complaints from me! One thing to note - I can't get the vent to move. I guess it doesn't. It doesn't detract from the value I see in it. I took some pics for all of you but the site had difficulties accepting my pics, even in different browsers. Nice feature of the remote: It has a vent on the backside to it can sense the temp of its surroundings. So usually ACs will just sense the temp right around it. Having the remote, the AC can sense the temp across the room and actually adjust the temperature appropriately. It definitely works. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk! We took advantage of an upgrade program in our community and they replaced 3 of our “less efficient” units with these (2 15 year old no name brands that worked perfectly and a Frigidaire from about 2 years ago that I never really liked). These 3 replacement units are TERRIBLE!! I’m sitting in a small room with the doors closed and the temperature set at 77 degrees and it’s not running and it’s 84 in here! The fan on high is about low on my old units. I sorely regret getting these and I will NEVER buy another Frigidaire product. They just aren’t worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Modern Design Compared to other window a/c, this unit has a modern design. Operation is reasonably quite, no glaring noises. It has a high energy efficiency rating, 12.4. The digital display and buttons are well thoughtout making it easy to use. Remote sensing feature provides accurate temperature control. Only concern I have is that the interior airflow channel of the unit is made of styrofoam not plastic. Not sure how well styrofoam will hold up over time, but I assume this is a proven design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We bought this AC last summer (2018) and love it! Very easy to us and cools very well. We keep the fan on Low and it's VERY quiet! I used to wake up every time the old AC cycled on/off during the night.....not so with this model! And now it's July of 2019 and we still love it! Plus it looks stylish, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Investment I bought this product to replace another 11.0 energy efficient room air conditioner I bought four years ago. What I like about this one is the fact that it is a 12.4 EER rated air conditioner and not noisy but very low noise signature. I would say quiet but all air conditioners have a little noise and this one is hardly noticeable. installation was fairly simple and it comes with installation instructions. I sent in the extended warranty only because an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure and the price was low enough. Haven't got my first electric bill but I would imagine that it will be lower than my last unit, this one is a 5000 BTU my last one was a 5200 BTU with a 11.0 EER, do the math. For small apartments this one is a keeper. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
