Great product

Jayman2427 6/14/2021

I bought this 2 weeks ago and couldn't be happier. The unit has excellent features and is easy to setup and the unit is quiet enough. No problem cooling bedroom plus hall way and kitchen. Dehumidifier is a great option and works well. I love the ECO mode as well. What's not to like.

This air conditioner is a dream. It is light so it is easy to install. Even though it is small, it is powerful and with 8000 btus it cooled my 250 sq ft room immediately. The farious power modes are also good features because they are energy saving.

Good AC

amyee02 5/25/2021

I bought this window unit a few weeks ago to replace an old unit in my living room. I like the appearance- modern and compact, and it™€™s done a good job cooling my room with the recent heatwave. The only criticism i I have so far is it™€™s louder than I would prefer and expected. Not unbearable, but I wish it was quieter like the AC in my bedroom.

Cools my large open plan LR/Kitchen.

bon333 5/22/2021

I recently bought this AC to replace a 5000btu one that was not enough to cool the space properly. My open plan space is between 450-500 sq ft. This AC cools the area fast. SO much so, I sometimes have to turn it up a higher temp to not be too chilly! The only thing I would improve is the farthest vent direction does not send the breeze towards the middle of the room. It does circulate well, but because my windows are near walls, it is too strong on just the sofa, when I'd prefer mid-room. It took me awhile to see the directions properly on how to change the AC temp reading to F from C. But that was a reading error. I have a feeling though that others do the same misreading - so sad it carefully. I have a narrow window [outer width is 22, but inside is 21"] and few AC's seem able to fit unless lower BTU. This fit perfectly without the side pieces to simply attach with the upper bar pieces to window, place foam around to fill the space. My maintenance guy was thoughtful and had white duct tape he put over that, which made it look nicer. I love how this AC sits smoothly with the inside portion within the space of my window sill. My old one jutted out over into the room. This AC has a sleeker look. I also love having a remote.

Quiet and cool

big dave 69 5/6/2021

I bought this AC replacing a 10 year old of a different brand. I am extremely pleased with the power to cool my cottage and the lack of noise emitting from it. My old one was like a freight train when it was on. Rattling my steel framed window like it was a tambourine and clunking when the compressor turned on and off. I am very pleased with my purchase and will always consider Frigidaire first when purchasing appliances in the future

Cools our main floor down!

sweetljkehoney 1/2/2021

We live in an old house that has no air ducts and therefore no central heating or cooling. We have survived two summers here without heat but summer 2020 would be the last time we had to do without air, as we purchased the Frigidaire air conditioner. We are pleased with it. The appliance cools the main floor down which is a far cry from where we were prior to owning it!

Quiet Good Window Unit

WESeib 11/18/2020

I bought this through Amazon. It's a very nice little unit that runs pretty quietly. I had an LG that got condensation on the control board and died. Unfortunately, this Frigidaire doesn't cool as quickly as that LG, but it does get the job done and it is a little quieter. It's amazingly compact, looks good, and does the job.

Lori Dennis 10/10/2020

The unit has been freezing- up since day one . Ice forms on the coils and stops air flow. I™€™ve called and emailed the manufacturer several times but no response. I™€™ve had the unit installed 5 weeks and still no response from manufacturer. I would not recommend this unit. Even if it worked properly the unit seems poorly constructed.

Bought product but the electrical components did not function. It blew cool air but you couldn™€™t control the speed or temperature. After a bit of an argument, the company did the right thing and refunded me. Because they did so I bought the same exact unit and it works very well. The air is really cold and I can actually control it too!

Quiet and Efficient

Maurice Ravel 8/17/2020

This little gem works like a charm. It is so quiet, I hardly hear it. I haven't received my first electric bill since purchasing it, so I can't yet attest to the savings over what my last rather run-down window unit cost to run. I have been running this on Eco mode, so I hope to see some savings. As for size, square footage dictated I should buy a 6000 BTU model, but I went for the 8000 BTU and am glad I did. I live in a building constructed in 1910, so my ceilings are quite high. If you are not terribly handy with these types of things, you will likely need to get help installing it. In my case, I expected it as there are protective window bars on the exterior of the building that complicated matters. Therefore, I asked my building super to install it, and it required a few modifications. I would not hesitate to recommend based on my experience so far. Moreover, it has made my life bearable through a recent brutal heatwave!

Chip615 8/14/2020

No issues with unit. Not the quietest but not too bad. Remote little confusing. We use it as on-off only. You have to be able to see the unit, the remote doesn't tell you any settings. So if you have to get close enough to see the display you are already up so don't need remote! Thermostat control works well.

Hurricane back up Ac

Bo m 8/4/2020

I bought this for hurricane ac back up. I have run it about 24 hours and it has worked fine. The reviews do mention that it the fan picks up condensate in the cabinet and makes a light ticking sound which it does at lower fan speeds. It isn™€™t annoying and doesn't seem to effect the performance. It also states in the owners manual that this is normal and to not drill a hole In the bottom of unit to drain the water. The only reason I didn™€™t give five stars is because I haven™€™t used it a lot and can™€™t speak for the longevity.

TeanLon 7/23/2020

It functions but it was delivered with a big kink to the rear left corner of unit. Cardboard box cracked open and internal form pieces barely holds the product in place. It could be the shipper's handling technique/training, but packaging dept should have taken that into account at designing the packaging material.

Does't Cool Well, I am Very Disappointed

Skyblu 7/22/2020

This Frigidaire 8000 BTU doesn't Cool well at all my very small NY Studio Apartment. My 5 year old 8000 BTU Haier Cooled it off So Nicely. But unexpectedly broke a couple of weeks ago. Which caused me to need to buy another one. Being that Frigidaire is a reputable company of appliances, I wouldn't go wrong. But I was wrong, because I am not Cool or Comfortable in my apartment, especially on these Hot Summer Days. Even having the temperature at 62 Degrees, and on High for hours does not Cool as 62 Degrees should. I feels like 74 Degrees on Fan. I am Very Diappointed!

Overall pleased with air conditioner

RDel 7/15/2020

Only had it a few days, but so far I like this AC. Installation in the window was well detailed in the instructions as is the operators manual.The only things I would comment negatively on are the LED's on the AC. They are very small and difficult to see from any distance. When using the remote it is hard to tell what the AC was set to without getting close to AC. Kind of defeats the purpose of the remote.Also, there is no way to turn off the remote or at least it's display. The temperature display is continuously shown which although minimal battery current it will drain the battery. Would be nice to have a display off button or a timeout that will turn the display off after a period of time.

Compact and Sturdy

Robert228 7/14/2020

First, happy to see that quite a bit of thought process went into the packaging and protection of the shipped unit. Give that part 5 stars. Second, I really considered going after a 10,000 BTU unit but due to power and weight considerations, I opted for the 8000 BTU. I am impressed that such a compact unit could do the same job with our 3 rooms as well as the two year old, rusting, larger profile 8000 BTU unit of a different brand that it was replacing. Fan does drown out television (in next room) somewhat when set to medium or high but is fine when set to low. When running, unit sounds like a sturdy, well built air conditioner, except the manner in which it drains (hardly) is strange, even though it is pitched to specifications. During very humid conditions, you can hear the fan constantly splashing water and I did read somewhere that this was normal per the design. This is the only reason I am not giving it 5 stars. I also have a 6000 BTU Frigidaire in a bedroom that does the exact same thing. Perhaps a rep from Frigidaire can explain this design? All in all, would buy again.
