Questions & Reviews

8,000 BTU Window-Mounted Room Air Conditioner is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 543.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a Disappointment I am sitting here on a HOT TEXAS night with a less than 6 month old Unit that is blowing nothing but air ! It started out great in the first few months but now all it does is make noise and blow a little bit of cold air and after a few hours it’s just from one vent and eventually just air ! I am getting on the phone first thing in the morning to see about returning this unit to where I bought it ! Plus I am out what I had to pay someone to come help me install it ! Frigidaire USED to be a highly trusted brand ! I am so disappointed and literally losing sleep because of this so called AC !! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet operation compared to other window unit Love that it is quite and doent rattle like other brands. Powerful and cools great. I wish though that the unit didnt automatically default to the economy setting every time it has been turned off and on again. The economy setting doesnt suit my cooling application because I need the fan running at all times when the room is still calling for cooling. I realize that this was probably mandated to achieve the energy star rating. And its easy enough to set to "normal" when turning the unit back on. But I love the unit based on the fact that it is quiet and capable compared to other brands. Thanks [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value - Excellent Product I'd inherited an older, bigger air conditioner from a neighbor a few years ago. It worked OK, but due to the size and weight it was becoming impractical to keep. After a bit of research I decided on this Frigidaire AC. I'm very happy with the product overall. It's more powerful and more efficient than my old AC - the older one could cool my living room and kitchen, but this new one does the job for my entire apartment (living room, kitchen and bedroom). In additon the size and weight are extremely manageable - and it's easy to store in the winter. Highly recommended. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, cycles nicely I've had this unit for just over a month now, and am very happy with it. I am using it in my living room with the remote handling the temperature settings. It's reasonably quiet for an 8k BTU unit, with the typical swishing / gurgling sound from pan water being slung onto the condenser. Fan speed adjusts well with the auto feature. Very happy with the performance and features. The only thing I wish was different was that the remote wasn't old school infra red. You MUST have the remote pointed at the unit with line of sight unimpeded or it will not remote control the temperature (or any other remote control feature).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the remote thermostat! We bought this unit to help cool my daughter's bedroom. It's a "bonus room" over the garage, and it was always the hottest room in the house. We have central air conditioning, but it doesn't keep her room cool. Her only window is in an alcove, and a previous window A/C kept the alcove cool but, because the thermostat was in the window A/C, it didn't cool her room. The Frigidaire unit allows us to use the remote control as a thermostat. She places that next to her bed and the Frigidaire keeps her room at the temperature she wants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment we have ever made. The quality and comfort of sleeping now is unbelievable. I actually cannot wait to go to my bedroom to sleep. My previous A/C had to be put on about an hour before to call the bedroom. Now, not even 5 minutes the room is ready and cooled to comfort. This Frigidaire A/C saves you money in electricity bills, is quiet and I am recommending it to all my family and friends. I am going to change the one I have in living room to Frigerdaire. So sorry I did not know the quality of Frigerdaire before, as it would have saved me years of discomfort and dreading summer. Now I cannot wait to get back to my apt. which is now a haven instead of a dread. Love you Frigerdaire.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cools very nicely Bought this over memorial weekend,. My 85 year old husband and i installed it in our window. It cools our 2 large rooms very nicely,. The only downside is that the factory setting "econ" turns it off in the middle of the nights if you don't remember to change the settings to stay cool. Great buy for the price. The price was so good we bought a 4 year service contract. It was delivered in a couple of hours .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! I bought this window air conditioner about 4 weeks ago, and it is just what I needed to cool a room over a garage that gets very little help with cooling from the main house central a/c. It is a room that is exposed on 3 sides, one of them being the southern exposure that gets morning and afternoon sun. This unit will give very quick relief from the heat if we haven't been running it all day. I especially like the energy saver feature, that allows the unit to cool the room to the desired temperature, and then keep it there, without running constantly.
