Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LizzHunter Runs great and quiet
This was a BTU upgrade for my living room. Fast delivery to the store. My handyman picked it up and installed in the wall fairly quickly with no issues. It's blowing cold and quiet and is cooling almost the entire 1400 sf house. And my first electric bill after installation was a pleasant surprise. So far, this warm season has been mild, so I can't review how it works in 100+ degree Texas heat, but so far it was a good buy. It looks as nice as a window unit can look, plus I'm on deck for a $50 rebate from Austin Energy.

We replaced our old A/C a month ago to beat the Summer rush. This new unit is very quiet and the remote with the remote sensing feature is awesome.

Bought at the end of the summer and really haven't used it much. Not sure of all the features as yet but so far - good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Southbuck Cools our home GREAT!!
We bought this unit to replace our old outdoor unit and we couldn't be more pleased with our purchase. It cools our 1400+ sq ft home so nicely without having to run all the time. It's also nice and quiet when it's on. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who needs a new AC.

I bought this unit about a month ago and it works GREAT!! VERY COLD AIR and it has many settings from cool to just fan. Also has a timer and eco-saver setting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tone Excellent AC
I have an 1100 sq ft home and this AC is cooling it no problem. I keep it on economy mode and set it for 69 deg with the remote about 5 ft away. The entire house is maintained at a super comfy 72 deg. Got my bill , 50 bucks more this month and this baby blows 16 hours a day. The remote allows it to be used like a central air unit, shutting off intermittently when the remote temp hits the set temp. Please don't turn it to 60. You will get pneumonia.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CoolCustomer Welcome relief with this A/C unit
Followed the recommendations for unit size, 22,000 BTUs for 1300 sq/ft but the unit cools the entire house of 1600 sq/ft just fine. Mounted easily through the wall (not window mounted) and only needed a 15A-230V circuit. Easy. This Frigidaire has a couple of nice options. One of the main issues that I've seen with units this large is the noise. Mine is through the living room wall located about 5.5 feet off the floor and about 8 feet from the TV and sound system. I do need to raise the audio a notch or two when in low or med fan mode but the noise is nowhere near what I remember from years ago for A/C window units this size. Not bad at all. I looked for reviews like this one specifically for noise reports and it appears what I found was accurate. I'm happy. And cool. Hope the local power grid holds up.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DHC120 It's a HUGE A/C Window Unit
This purchase was done "on-line" as THAT is the only way Home-Depot will sell it.. No "Free Delivery" and pick-up of old unit, but it did have free delivery to the store (via UPS!!), where I retrieved it.. The lad who brought the 130lb unit out to the truck was far from short, skinny or underfed.. He grabbed the huge box in a bear-hug and gently placed into the back of my pick-up..
Once I got the unit home, it took THREE healthy male adults to get it out of the pick-up bed and trundle it into the house.. Due to the physical size of this window unit, the window where this A.C unit was to be installed HAD to be removed (it was a small window) so I opted to do a "thru the wall" type installation, which was actually easier than a window installation, in my opinion!
Once the opening was ready to receive the A/C unit, the contractor and I opened the box, which had NO damage on the outside.. Inside the box, however, was a different story!! The right side (as viewing from the front of the unit) was bent "in" at the upper right corner and down the right side, and the plastic grill surround was cracked in a couple of places. I did NOT have the luxury of time to return the unit then wait three weeks for another UPS delivered/damaged exchange unit. The outer case dent was such that removal of the A.C works would have been impossible for a less qualified person.. I don't accept impossible.. I REPAIR "impossible" (Forty+ Years as a Heavy Line Mechanic and ten years doing FULL Automotive restorations! I can fix anything!), so armed with trusty body hammer, dolly and a few other tools, I worked-out the dent, reshaped the outer case then removed the "works".. As to the cracked grille surround, Duct Tape works wonders, when applied by a professional, of course!! All this took a bit over an hour, but I seriously doubt Home-Depot would be willing to pay me my professional hourly labor rate for repairing this damaged unit!
As to the "Functions" of the unit, I TOTALLY Dislike all these "built-in mandatory" energy savings modes.. When I turn on the da*n A/C unit, it's because it's getting HOT (like 80+ going to 110 that day!!)
I want the A/C Unit ON!! And to STAY ON!! I don't want some "Econ" or "Energy Saver Mode" which, best as I can figure, just turns the A/C unit OFF two minutes after I turned the da*n thing ON!! How much cooling is that!!! WE live in Texas.. A/C units might run for DAYS and MONTHS without ever being turned off!! (sometimes from Feb to Nov--Non-Stop!!!) To have to turn the unit on, then punch a bunch of buttons to "by-pass" these energy savings modes is just plain stupid.. and there are no options that can be permanently set to bypass these cr*ppy functions, ALL newly made-in-china units are made this way.. DUMB!! Why not make these units so the Eco-Geek has to hunt for HIS economy/energy savings mode.. He probably lives up north, anyway where his A.C unit only NEEDS to run for two minutes anyway!!
