Questions & Reviews

15,000 BTU Window-Mounted Room Air Conditioner is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from My review I bought this model to replace my 15 yr. old one. It cools well, but after it rains the water that is captured inside the unit makes a thunking noise as it hits the fan blades. It sounds like a bunch of pebbles are hitting the inside of the case and can be heard all through the house. . I don't understand why there is nowhere for the water to drain. The instructions state that the warranty is voided is you drill a hole in the unit. Therefore, I would not recommend this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice air conditioner I needed to replace my old 12000 btu Frigidaire AC because it was tripping the 20a breaker it was running on even after cleaning the filter and the back of the air conditioner. I wanted a little more cooling power so I got this 15000 btu unit, the largest that would fit in my window and run on 120v. Huge difference! Throws a much stronger air stream while being quieter. The louver design has more control than the old design. I can't even hear when the compressor is running. It's using less power (around 10a using a plug-in wattmeter) than the old one (was about 12-13a, more when the outside temp got to 95 or more). I hope it continues to work this well for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with my new air conditioner. I bought this air conditioner a month ago and I’m so happy I did. It really cools most of my apartment nicely. Mostly quiet compared to the previously owned one. I keep it on medium temp because it really cools off the place and I have to bundle up under my blanket. You won’t be disappointed in purchasing this air conditioner. The size and price very good and I love that you can remove it without dismounting the outer frame. So you can clean it internally and place it right back. So far it’s a great investment. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy to have this AC I live at 7th floor and it is also the top floor. In summer, my previous AC (18000 btu & 8 years old) struggled a lot to cover the 450 sq. feet area which includes a living, kitchen and a bath room. This Frigidaire, Model: FFRE1533U1 15,100 BTU Window-Mounted Room Air Conditioner is a charm. It works really good and blows air strongly, making the whole area cool quit fast regardless the outside temperature. The AC starts and shuts down at desired temperature very smoothly. Only to be careful about the cord length which is said 72 inches but mine is 66". This misinformation has forced me to use an extension cord which is a 6 ft. 15 Amp, 125 Volt, 1875 Watt max. ac/appliance extension chord. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SHES AS COLD AS ICE ! This is my third Frigidaire A/C I've purchased . I love the product quality and reliability , but most of all , it does what I wanted and that was to be cool or cold during very hot weather . It has a great design look and is very quiet for a 15,000 BTU of power . Love it . Can't go wrong. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed! Though I bought 3 Frigidaires based on good reviews, I find them all obtrusively loud. They also run quite cold--77 or 78 degrees makes me cover up--and I can't seem to find a moderate setting that's comfortable without being either too warm or too chilly. I had hoped these problems would work themselves out in time but it's been six weeks and I still have the same reaction. I find myself looking for a reason NOT to use the A/C--which is probably a good thing overall. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase this Year I purchased this unit because I wanted a new AC for a reputable Brand Name. I know that Frigidaire stands behind their products. I am so happy with my purchase. My Family is also great full on those warm summer days and nights. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice air conditioner I bought this air conditioner about 3 weeks ago..It cools nicely however it does not drain the water.My son had to drill a hole in the bottom to alleviate the water from building up inside the unit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
