This air conditioner was purchased to cool a 168 square foot Florida Room, which has glass sliding windows on 3 walls. The room has a 70 solar score, with a complete south-west exposure and no surrounding trees near by. During the summer, this room can easily reach a temperature in the high 80's to 90's. I have tried ceiling fans, as well as a portable AC unit, (i.e. a tower that sat on the floor, had wheels and a drip tray below). This Frigidaire was the only piece of equipment which ever really removed the extreme heat, my cat and I were experiencing. It has a daytime and a sleep setting on the remote. It has a temperature gauge for cooling as well as an energy saver (i.e. on energy saving setting on the unit turns itself on and off when it reaches the temp the owner selected).. The unit sits in my casement window. It has a drip pan, but the unit is built so there is never any water in it. I couldn't even say how much happier my cat and I are in the months of July and August this year than we were last year. Before, our room was like an inferno and now, we can have whatever temperature we want, I LOVE THIS AIR CONDITIONER. I would have bought this product 5 years ago, but I never knew that horizontal units are built for casement windows. Also, Overstock has a phone number for a company called PORCH, WHO WILL PROVIDE CUSTOMERS WITH THE NAMES OF INSTALLERS TO SEAT THE AC IN PLACE CORRECTLY. The unit is heavy, maybe too heavy for a slight individual who would have trouble lifting something over 50 pounds. Plus, it is very important to install the unit according to the directions provided, so the unit can't fall out of the casement. The first name PORCH gave me was a carpenter. He came over for the scheduled appointment within 2 days, exactly at the time and date we had agreed upon. I would buy products from Overstock, just to get the help from PORCH, which was outstanding. The PORCH customer service agent couldn't have been nicer. I was so relieve, because the best air conditioning unit in the world would have been no good without the right installer. I give this whole process a 5 star rating. I am so happy about this experience. The installer was named David King. He answered his phone on the first ring, the first day I called, and he was on a roof working at the time. No one can do better than that!!!!!!!
I love the look It's slender and not bulky as other models. As far as cool this unit replaced my window unit that cool off a 550 square foot area. This unit does not cover and cool the same area. It only cooled the immediate living room area and that I am a little disappointed. I purchased the 4 and 1 unit. I'm not sure that model may have reduced the power as with the air conditioner only unit.
I like the fact It puts out a lot of air for my living room. It is made very good and I like the facing trim on the fan! The height is great! Very please with it.
This air conditioner is great. Though a little pricey, the features are worth it. It takes up much less space than my 6+ year old unit and goes great with the decor in my space Some complain about the noise of this unit but it is 12,000 btus and is comparable to other unites in its class. It’s cools your space down really well but it’s defini not trying to win any awards for being quiet. Would definitely purchase again!
