Questions & Reviews

12,000 BTU Window-Mounted Room Air Conditioner is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 252.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AC of the heat wave of July 2019 We bought this AC July 3, 2019, old unit was on last leg. We lived comfortably through the heat wave of July 2019. So cold that we keep the unit on 73 degrees even during heat waves. The AC is in our bedroom, but the unit is keeping 3 other rooms comfortable. Love the 5 positions of the vents. Love the features especially the timer - coming home to a cool home. Suggest buy additional protection just in case AC unit developes a problem - we did. 1 yr warranty included plus 3 additional years directly from Frigidaire. Total 4 years. Highly recommend purchasing this unit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new AC! I bought my new air conditioning unit at the end of the season. We had a super hot week when my old AC unit stopped working. Luckily, I found this Frigidaire unit and knew this would fit the bill. This AC unit cools the house quickly and efficiently. Love that it shows the actual temperature of the room. It's quieter than my old unit was and does a great job cooling my small house in a short amount of time. Also it is convenient to have the remote instead of having to go to the unit to adjust the settings. I am very pleased with this AC unit and look forward to a number of years of service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cold air! I love it. I was worried when I brought it because the box was so big. I thought it wouldn't fit in the window, but realize it was just protections foam. It's the best! I love all the settings on it! It's my summer best friend! 2 minutes and the room is cold! Money well spent! The reason why I chose this brand because I knew someone who had the same brand. She had she had two small ones (8,500 btu) running for 3 meduim sizes room! She didn't had them on the lowest settings. They cool the rooms down nicely. To the point, every two hours, we had to turn them off because the place got too cold!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value My old AC just went last month, and I had to replace it. I'm on the top floor, and needed a unit to cool not only my livingroom, but adjacent kitchen and foyer as well. Frigidaire's reputation speaks for itself, as my parents had a refrigerator that lasted for years. This received many five-star reviews, which impressed me, and they weren't wrong. It does the trick! Cools efficiently and quietly, and the remote sensing is also a nice feature. So is the 'Eco' mode and the 'filter reset' feature whenever the filter needs cleaning. It has nice sleek lines, and a compact footprint. All in all, I'm pretty happy with my purchase. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aaaaahhhhh......so nice! I purchased this air conditioner after WEEKS of hot, humid, rainy New England weather. Why did I not do this years ago?!? My life (and home) has been so much more pleasant having this air conditioner. This air conditioner keeps my entire first floor (3 rooms and a bath) cool and comfortable. No more mildew trying to grow in the kitchen, no more damp tile floors or upholstery. And no more wasted time feeling so hot, logy, and uncomfortable. I'm VERY happy with this purchase, and would have been even if it hadn't been on sales tax-free weekend! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to operate. I bought this air conditioner about the second week of July after returning a portable unit which I was not pleased with. I bought a smaller version of the exact same air conditioner last year for my bedroom and was very happy with it, so I decided to buy a larger one for my first floor. It keeps the rooms nice and cool and with the econo feature it comes on and off when it reaches the desired set temperature. It was a pleasure to have a cool area to retreat to on those hot muggy days. I would recommend this unit to anyone who needs a new air conditioner. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work well I bought this a month ago before the coming heat. This seems to be a good unit. As far as the basics, it's been keeping the house cool over the last week's heat wave. I have a 1500 ft2 cape cod house and it cools all the downstairs very adequately - on medium and eco mode. I like the remote and the eco-mode, fan cycles on as needed. It doesn't require much attention. My only concern is that there is a crinkling noise outside, sounds like something is bouncing around inside the fan or compressor, but I can't see anything and it has not affected its performance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Developed annoying whistle/whine after two weeks Purchased end of April and installed a week later. Aside from the cheap air flow grill, I was delighted with this air conditioner until I turned it on May 22nd -- and I immediately heard the whine which makes it very annoying once you notice it. The whine is throughout all settings and hasn't gone away. I had a prior 2006 12000 BTU Frigidaire model that also developed a whine, but after 10 years and mostly disappeared when run on high. Being a senior citizen, I'm VERY disappointed to have to remove and find another 12000 that will fit in my tiny window. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
