This AC was bought to replace an old 23,500 BTU thru the wall unit. I installed this myself in the same place where that old AC was. Install was rather easy, and I am not sure why people are saying that it was difficult or confusing. NOTE THAT YOU NEED A 220V OUTLET FOR THIS AC!! First, the people who say that this AC is noisy must not have installed it properly. For its size and power, this unit is very quiet. There are no rattling sounds or anything of the like. Second, despite this being 5,000 BTU less than the unit it replaced, this unit cools very well. We have had a few 100 degree days already this year, and this AC had no problem dealing with them! The people who complain that it doesnt cool well likely received bum units and should return them. The AC comes with a remote which is very easy to use. One cool feature is that the remote has its own temperature sensor and you can have the AC keep the temp at a constant level based upon either the temp at the AC unit itself or where the remote is. So I can leave the remote in a different room and have it use the sensor in the remote to keep the temp in that room at a constant. THIS AC IS THE BEST DEAL IN ITS COOLING CLASS; DO NOT HESITATE TO BUY IT!
I got this 18500 Frigidaire to replace a 24 year old 24000 btu unit. So far it working good, but just put it in after the last heat wave. I hope it does the job. By the way this was put through the wall, as I called Frigidaire and they said it can go through the wall also.
Loved the product. would highly recommend. We've had it for a few weeks now and it's keeping a classroom of 15 nice and cool.
