Questions & Reviews

18,500 BTU Window-Mounted Room Air Conditioner with Supplemental Heat is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Our large window unit went out and this has been an excellent replacement. I like the timer that shuts the unit off and the economy mode so I don't waste electricity. I keep mine on auto fan as well. The beeps are loud when you change settings, as well, which is great with children in the home- you know if it's being changed. The only downfall is that my husband hates the machine cutting on and off and I get the pleasure of hearing about it. I haven't tried the heat setting, but have friends that had warm homes from this unit. That other unit of ours lasted ten years, so I hope this will keep showing off!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid performer. This is a great unit, which delivers more cold air than you'll need. It has nice features, like starting itself after a power failure, and a heater if the days turn cool. It's a bit loud for a bedroom, but not intolerable. My only real complaint is that the bottom drip pan does not have a hose connection for catching the condensate. This becomes a real problem if installed in a window above a patio or entrance way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!! We bought this unit 2 summers ago and it works great! Our house is about 1250 sf and it will freeze you out in the summer and keeps it cozy warm in the winter. I love this unit especially because my utility bill has never been over an extra $40 and that was during the extreme heat months in the southern US states. Most months bills are hardly even different whether I use the unit or not. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit for my workshop/garage Bought this unit about three (3) months ago. Works better than I expected and seems to be very efficient. I have two (2) freezers and two (2) refrigerators in my garage. They don's seem to work nearly as hard since installing this A/C unit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great, Easy to Use Remote Controls I purchased in March 17 for my ocean front condo. So far it has worked well. I've used the AC mostly but have used the heat one cold night this fall. Both work as advertised. An important feature was reducing the moisture in the air. Given my location, I don't expect it to take all the moisture out. It does a reasonably good job at that also. My only negative and it is a very minor concern is that it sometime goes from cool to econ on its own. I would buy again if I need one in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complete garbage Bought in summer 2016 and by summer 2017 the control panel went out, which was covered by warranty so they replaced it. Now here we are in 2018, in the dead of summer in the south with no air condition because yet again the control panel is out and the unit won't come on, and somehow the control panel isn't covered on the warranty now. Thanks frigidaire!...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cost saving and cold air I have had this air conditioner installed for about a month and already my electric bill has been reduced by $70. This purchase will be paid for in no time with the reduced costs. It is as quiet as my furnace when it kicks on, It was easy to install. and it provides cool relief on even the hottest days. It is economical and provides cool air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FEATURES I PURCHASED THIS IN THE HOTTEST AND MOST HUMID TIME OF SUMMER LAST MONTH. I AM SO HAPPY WITH THIS AIR CONDITIONER. IT'S EASY TO USE, QUICK TO COOL AND QUIET SO I CAN SLEEP PEACEFULLY. PRICE WAS SO GREAT COMPARED TO OTHER BRAND NAMES. AND IT HEATS IN THE WINTER TOO. WHAT A BARGAIN.
