Exactly what we needed!

BearMesa 5/6/2024

We are very satisfied with our new Frigidaire a.c. unit. Bought it for a new sunroom of about 250 square feet. It cools the area quickly & keeps it at the set temperature. Great to have the remote with temperature indicator. Huge plus is how quietly the unit operates.

I have bought this A/C to replace the Frigidaire unit from our Florida room that was put in in 2014. The old one still worked but after running 24/7 evry day that was hot and in Florida that was alot. It was acting its age and was leaking water all the time The room is 350sq ft and it cools of perfectly. We love it

Cool relief

Paula Dallas 7/7/2023

My new window AC is providing good cool relief from the heat. Frigidaire is one of the only manufacturers that provides a 72-in cord, which is nearly always needed. It's crazy other brands have such short words. You have to be able to plug it in after all. My one and only criticism of this AC is that I found the operation instructions confusing because of the Eco mode, which switches itself off and on. I ended up turning it off but it defaults to it upon installation. It would be fine if no one was home. Turning it off leaves it in a mode where the fan adjusts itself if you have everything on auto and is quietly making the adjustments and is just much more pleasant and keeps you consistently cool. I think they need to redo the instruction manual.I bought my AC from Frigidaire directly after comparing prices locally. It got here a day early. And it came right to my door. I can't lift things so this was very helpful.I am considering buying a Frigidaire refrigerator next if my old GE goes out, which I think it's about to.

Not worth .10 cents!!!!!!!

FrigidAir garbage 8/23/2022

If you decide to buy this just like I did, you will think that you will go home with an air conditioner that will works. this thing will not!!!! Temp is high turn down the air conditioning temperature and it will still not work!! here™€™s a picture of what I experience day after day. I think somebody else should know how unreliable this air conditioner is before they have spent money to buy it. move on buy something else that works. Yes it™€™s plugged in yes it says it should work but it is blowing hot on both sides it™€™s less than a year old I would not recommend buying this unit at all because somebody else turns it on and off and that won™€™t be you when you need it!!

I cool again

James1952 8/4/2022

I ordered this after my HVAC went out on me. Being in a heat wave it was going to be several weeks before a replacement could be installed. I ordered my AC unit it was here in two days. This is a seriously nice unit. Cools like nobody's busyness. Perfect for my use. Controls are easy to understand remote is excellent. Its loud but, no more than most. I normally use a white noise machine at night so the noise is not an issue
