Answer: 
The quietest unit I owned in the 10k-12k BTU range was the Friedrich CP12G10A. This style unit is also sold by LG, Model LW1215HR but that will supply heat as well.
I most recently bought an LG LW1215ER that was reasonably quiet.
Most of the noise is due to the current design of window AC in this price range. Hi-Velocity fast turning fans create more noise.

Hello - this is Nancy at GE and I am happy to help you with regard to a new air conditioner unit.
This model is a perfect model. It's a 12,000 BTU unit and has the electronic digital thermostat with a remote. It is quiet other than the normal operating sounds. You may hear a pinging noise caused by water being picked up and thrown against the condenser on rainy days or when the humidity is high. This design feature helps remove moisture and improve efficiency. You may also hear the thermostat click when the compressor cycles on and off. Water will collect in the base pan during high humidity or on rainy days. The water may overflow and drip from the outdoor side of the unit. Lastly, the fan may run even when the compressor does not.

Answer: 
We just installed it yesterday. I have a decibel meter on my phone. Four feet in front of the unit the meter was steady at 65 with the fan on high. It goes up a bit when the compressor comes on but not that much. The noise is pretty smooth. Not like what our old one sounded like. This unit is brand new so over time I'm sure it will get louder.

Any way to recalibrate the thermostat?

I bought this unit two days. Last night I set the temp to 70, set the unit to "cool," and then noticed that the room was hot in the middle of the night. The temperature readout displayed 75 but the compressor hadn't kicked back on. I tried the same on "economy" mode, and the unit simply did not come back on even when the temperature rose. The only thing that worked was hitting either the plus or minus button on the temp setting, which seemed to "wake up" the compressor. I'd hate to have to pull the unit and return it--any other solutions?

Hi Greg- This is Sue at GE Appliances. In the Energy Save mode (ON), the fan will cycle on and off with the compressor . This results in wider variations of room temperature and humidity . Normally used when the room is unoccupied. In the Energy Save mode Off position, the fan runs all the time, while the compressor cycles on and off. Check for ice on the coils. A cool evening in which the outdoor temperature is below 70 degrees F is one of the main causes for a window air conditioner to have ice on the indoor coils. Switching the Fan speed to a lower setting for quieter operation but leaving the thermostat at a higher setting will result in not enough air flowing over the cooling coils. This lower airflow will not keep the moisture off the coils and in turn that moisture will freeze. The best way to prevent ice on coils is to not run the unit if the outdoor temperature is below 70 degrees F. If the temperature is close to 70 or you are unsure of the temperature, you can turn the thermostat to a warmer setting, set the fan switch to the highest position. This allows for better airflow across the coils. Make sure there are no curtains, blinds or furniture blocking the front of the air conditioner. If the air conditioner does not start, the current interrupter device may have tripped. Press the RESET button located on the power cord plug. If the RESET button will not stay engaged, service is required. You can contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or visit our Support page at GEAppliances.com. Thanks for reaching out to us!

Answer: 
I noticed with ours that in Energy Saver mode the room temp will get noticeably warm before the unit kicks back on. It's described in the manual under the Energy Saver Mode section. Maybe try it with Energy Saver off.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hard to Get Excited about Lackluster Performance There are two things I dislike about this unit. First, is the noise level. Using the unit on anything but the 'low' setting is extremely loud, particularly in comparison to other units we have. Second, the Energy Saver mode doesn't work very well - the temperature sensor is either off or the programming is suspect. The unit will cool well beyond the temperature it is set to before clicking off. For example I will set it to 75 and the unit will cool all the way down to 72 degrees before pausing. June 19, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Vibrates Second Unit, the first had a massive dent from Home Depot or whoever shipped it there. At first I thought a helicopter was flying over the house, then I figured unless it was hovering it must be the new ac! I checked the mounting points and they were solid. The unit vibrates internally when the fan is on medium, (explains why I only heard the vibrations sometimes when in auto mode). As I played with the ac I noticed it seems to be fine on high or low but medium shakes like heck. So disappointed, these things aren't as easy and light as a toaster to return to the store. Glad I bought an extended warranty. As of now I can't place blame on GE because it could possibly be Home Depot shipping and handling, every unit on display had torn cardboard or signs of rough handling. I've had great service from Home Depot in the past with other products and employee interactions; I don't want to trash talk them as a whole but I'm not happy this time. May 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by A big disappointment! It was a gift Some functions never worked well like energy saver & directional vents were poorly designed A big big disappointment is no warranty coverage!!! It makes no sense! We're definietly will get rid of it Will not ever get GE air conditioner in our future! October 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Very Well in a Garage I had to buy an air conditioner for a Golden Retriever who had major allergy reactions and stays in the garage at night and at hot times of the day. This conditioner easily holds the 78 degrees on which it is set even in the hottest of Tennessee summer afternoons. September 23, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Multiple failures on initial install Just bought this today, 4th of July, 2015. Wasn't very hot out, figured I'd beat the rush. Good thing I don't need it yet - it doesn't work! I first powered it on and learned the minus control doesn't work. Power starts it on Auto, tells me it's 74 degrees, and runs for 10 minutes until it shuts off. I'm thinking maybe it's saving energy so I fiddle with the remote, set it to 64 degrees, play with the fan and learn it works on low and medium, but not on high and auto. Then I let it run for 15 minutes. I can hear the compressor cycling, but It's just blowing warm air! So, I power it off, reset the breaker, power it on - all the lights flash on panel. Still same problems. I set the temp to 64 (lowest it goes) and fan is on Medium - after 30 minutes, giving up. July 4, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cools great Bought this a.c. unit 3-4 months ago after another one conked out. I cool my one room retail shop (appr 30' x 30') easily. I have to keep it very cool because of produce stored in this place. Easy to control thermostat with a remote. September 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by $100 off cause it didn't have a box!! Install was simple and the house was cool in minutes. Love the economy button where it shuts itself totally off when not needed August 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the Job The air conditioner has been in used for the past few weeks. It cools quickly and efficiently. The only drawback is the noise from the interior Styrofoam-like covering. It generates a constant, distracting sound like rain falling (even during low humidity periods). July 28, 2015
