Customer Questions & Answers

14,000 BTU or 18,000 BTU

What would be appropriate size of window air conditioner for a 1 bedroom, 1 bath, 1 kitchen, living, dining with total area of 756 sq ft in Maui, HI ? The unit will be placed near the lanai. The condo has a 100 amp breaker service. What gauge wire do I need and at what amp? Is 14,000 BTU or 18,000 BTU enough?
Asked by: Anonymous
18,000 BTU is the best fit for your layout. Ideally, a 15,000 BTU unit would cool the area you mention, but since it includes a kitchen, you would need to add about 4000 BTU to that number so this 18,150BTU unit would fit the bill, but power requirements could be tricky, given your 100 Amp setup. You would not be able to run this unit if your panel is a 100 Amp single pole panel. It could work if you have 50 Amp two pole setup. Please note however that units over 15,000 BTU typically require 240 Volts. This particular unit runs at 240 volts / 8.8 Amps. In order for you to run a unit like this, you would need to have a 240 volt outlet and with only 50 Amp total from your, if you have an electric dryer and /or stove, this could be a little tight for you. Please consult a local electrician regarding your particular setup.

Customer Reviews

18,000 BTU 230 Volt Electronic Window Air Conditioner with Remote-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product with excellent cooling capacity I purchased this unit to cool a huge living/dining room area (40x20 ft) with high cathedral ceilings. This unit was purchased to replace an older unit that died with the same btu rating and has maintained a wonderful 72 degrees during some 100 degree days this last week and occasionally shutdown into energy saving mode. I can't wait to see how much this unit saves me over the older non energy saving brand. This unit according to the specs was 26x18" which would have been an exact match for the old unit. But was actually smaller at 23.5x17.5 this required building out the frame in the wall which was not a huge problem and would not be any issue if window mounting the unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Product... This product died after just two years of use and only has a one year warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far so good seems like a great ac, bought it to replace my broken Frigidaire Air Conditioner 18,500 BTU FAS185N2A ac ... it cools down 3 large rooms FAST, is quiet and so far so good. Only had a little over a week now so time will tell. The price was ok, wish ac's were not so darn expensive, but for what it is, it matches the price to what I paid for the ac it replaced and I bought that back in '07. Plus installing these heavy window ac's is never fun and it was just as difficult as any other large window ac, but it was tough and took 3 hours to totally get it in. couldn't turn it on for 24 hours since it was put on it's side by the delivery guys to wheel it in the house. if this one lasts at least 5 years too, then I'll be happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good For me it installed the same as any other Window AC. It was pretty easy besides lifting that weight above my head, with help from small pulley. First thing I noticed was how quiet this 18000 BTU AC was. Very quiet compared to all the other AC's I've owned. One thing I don't like is that the temp only goes down to 64 F. I personally wish it went lower, but maybe that's just me. Only thing I can't tell you is how long it will last. Only had it for a couple of weeks. Seems to be well built, so I hope it lasts many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good, with only one warning. I haven't had weather higher than than close to 90 to test it in yet. But so far it does well. The only real complaint that I have is that the directions for installing it in a window that isn't the standard type, is confusing. For some windows, you may have to just think about it, and use some wisdom. The weight of the unit will probably give you enough of a slant, even if it might appear to be level when you are putting it in. Make sure you have it at it's slant, and set the braces at that, before you put it in for good. It has good air flow, and will cool a large area very well. The 240 V units like this one will give you much better efficiency than the 120 V units. I went for the extended warranty that Home Depot offered. It may save you a lot of trouble and money if you can afford it. I had a bad experience with a Frigidaire air conditioner that had only the manufacturers warranty. I feel safer with a store warranty, they are usually better. And these things can break down, even ones with good reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This ac is nice looking so looks good in any room. This is a unit that is off white in color with a sharp appearance so it doesnt look like the older models. My son in law and I installed it in less than an hour even tho we had to remove an old storm window and he had to run a new electrical wire. The remote control is a cool handy thing to have but not really essential. Its awesome to have a window unit with 18,000 btu's and with its energy rating it shouldnt be too expensive to operate. Im partial to GE so Im happy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 14 months after purchase Purchased a/c on July 19, 2012. Cooled well, quiet and easy to install. This is my 4th a/c for my garage. Previous a/cs would last 2 years before service was needed. This one gave problems with blower within 12 months of purchase. Haven't called ge yet, but not sure if they will cover anything due to it being 14 months. Blower started making noise and completely stopped once. Slightly pushed on interior fan and all went well except for noise. Now it has completely stopped. Will update after speaking with ge. I also feel filter is not of good quality and doesn't completely cover vent to keep dust out. Cleaned filter every other day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Air conditioner was easy to install and we love the remote control. The air conditioner cools quickly and the energy saver works great. We have only had it for a little over a month but everything is fine.
