Questions & Reviews

8,000 BTU Quiet Temp™ Room Air Conditioner is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet and Cool Bought this to replace a malfunctioning window A/C. I had previously purchased the 6,000 BTU model for a spare bedroom, and was impressed by how quiet that one was. Installed in a south-facing family room, where it's always been a struggle to hear the TV over the A/C. This model solves that. Assembly and installation were straightforward, although this one is quite back-heavy, so requires care when positioning in the window. The clips suppplied to hold the adjustable panels are a little short for some installs, and there are slight gaps where the panel seals meet the chassis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not too loud, keeps cool I purchased two of these ACs and am pretty pleased. They are quieter than my past ones, though I would not say they are silent. One in particular will sometimes go through what sounds like a period where air is blowing over the filter -it's not a terrible sound and not too loud. Just noticeable. I do think that they should have considered how bright the lights are on the display b/c in a bedroom, it lights up a room! I had to put a piece of tape over the display- it's fine now but should be considered for ac/s in a bedroom environment. Rooms get cold rather quickly and are very comfortable without the unit making too much effort which is nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool and whooshing I can't stand an air conditioner's drone. I need the cooling but love the quiet so I purchased the Frigidaire Quiet Temp because of it's very good quiet ratings. Yes it is pretty quiet and it cools our room quickly, but similarly to another review, it has an odd on and off whooshing sound which occurs both when the compressor is on or off. It is not constant but it occurs on and off all night which can be annoying. It's just an odd, but fairly quiet inconsistent sound, in addition to the regular compressor and fan sounds that are very quiet. If it didn't have this on and off whooshing sound all night this AC would be a 10+.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and sleek looking air conditioner I bought this to cool a large bedroom and bathroom, which this unit does admirably. I even leave the bedroom door open to cool the rest of the hallway and another bathroom (all on second floor of our house). It is quieter than most air conditioners, and more streamlined in design. Ours arrived dented from shipping. After much debate, we kept it (it was too much of a hassle to return it), but I sometimes wonder if the dented housing affects the unit's noise level. It's quieter than the unit it replaced, but not as quiet as I expected it would be when it is in cool mode. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quiet and then not Ran very quiet during the first week - so excited and happy. Then starting hearing some low gurgling and whooshing sounds that weren't there before. I tolerate it because it's still fairly quiet to operate but am annoyed by the sounds just the same. Wondering if I should call service? The remote is terrible. I have to push the buttons many times to engage a command. It cools my 15' x 15' room, but only if I set it at the lowest thermostat. I'm happy, though, that my electric bill is lower than usual - so that's a plus. Is there any way to correct the noise? [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Quiet Space I Am So Very Happy With The Purchase Of The Air Conditioner, It Is So Very Quiet I Don't Have To Make My TV Loader. I Never Know It's On Except The Fact That My Room Stays Nice And Cool. I Can Hear Over It My TV Which Is Great. For Someone Who Is Legally Deaf. I Just Love It. Very Easy To Use.Very Easy To Clean. And I Trust Frigidaire They Have Been Around For Very Many Years. You Will Not Regret This Purchase. You'll Love It As Much As I. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and cools my whole house I bought this air conditioner last August so I’ve been using it a year now. I am surprised by how cold the output air on it is, I’ve done HVAC work and I took the temperature of the output air and it was 3.5 degrees Fahrenheit, very cold but plausible since R410a’s boiling point is -55f. The unit cools my whole 880 sq ft house to 73 even on the hot 95 degree high humidity days. We never get up too 100 up here in NW Wisconsin and it’s rare to go above 90 but it happens a few times a summer and it’s often very humid too. I bought my unit on Amazon’s Warehouse Deals so I got it for a deep discount and am very happy with my purchase. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing I bought this specific series of premium air conditioner because it was supposed to be very quiet. It is quiet when first turned on to blow cold air. But once it gets the room down to the temperature set on the thermostat, it makes a number of annoying sounds as it cycles on and off. It whooshes and whistles -- very distracting. Also, he installation instructions are vague, and the buyer is left to figure some things out alone, including how to open the front panel to check the filter..
