Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GE 18000 BTU I had two of my heating and air techs put this in one of my apartments. It took them about an hour to install after the old one was removed. The unit puts out a lot of cold air. The price was good. I wanted the LG model, but it was not available. June 16, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great A/c My husband and I bought this air conditioner as it had great reviews, was energy star certified, was touted as quiet, and had a remote. The installation directions were a bit difficult to read, but together we figured it out. Overall, the a/c is quiet, but it seems to be inconsistent with our house's thermostat. The air conditioner will claim that it is 2-3 degrees cooler in the house than the thermostat that is close to it reads. Also, on Energy Saver mode, the a/c will turn on and run for about 30 seconds, turn off for 2-3 seconds, and kick back on and run until the goal temperature is reached. Not something I have had happen with other air conditioners in the past, but nothing is particularly wrong. The remote is particularly handy and works with your other GE air conditioners. Overall, good a/c unit! July 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great A/C Unit but installation instructions are not complete... This A/C unit works well and does a great job. The only problem I had was in the installation. The specifications indicated the unit will fit a window 26" to 41" wide with the accordion panels and it does not. My window is 26.25" wide and when following the instructions in the manual it does not fit. GE failed to put in the instructions that one or both of the rubber accordion window filler panels must be removed from the plastic filler frame for it to fit the window, I had to remove both. I am not sure what size window opening the unit will fit with the rubber accordion window filler panels included, depending on the window opening one or both may have to be removed. July 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works This was a replacement unit for the same model I purchased last year, even though it is the same it operates far better. It looks and works perfect. Great ice maker quiet overall operation and holds temptress better than any previous units I have owned May 6, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product works well however it is loud and makes an annoying pinging noise which they say is normal. Cools a large area and is efficient. August 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Works very well It's a little heavy but lighter than the GE we replaced. It cools a huge L shaped room we have very well and it isn't that loud inside, but outside it does make some kind of tinging noise and is a little louder than expected. Who cares though, it cools very well. One thing that was a pain was having to unscrew the controls to take the cover off and put it back on, but not that big of a deal. All and all it is a very nice AC unit. Let's see how it lasts, we replaced a GE unit that lasted 12 years! July 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value for the price Fast installation, great cooling ability, quiet and uses less energy then the last one January 7, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Window Air Conditioner Installation was not as easy as expected. The air conditioner is noiser than I expected. It works okay. However, if I had to do it all over again, I would not purchase this unit. In fact, if it wasn't so much trouble, I would take it out and take it back to the retailer for a refund. July 1, 2013
