Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sparky Beats the hot sticky NJ heat
Cools the first floor of a 2 story home (+/- 1400 sq ft) with the help of a ceiling fan. Relatively quiet for a machine this size. NOTE: it takes 2 adults to safely install the A/C in the window sleeve! Price was comparable to other appliance retailers. Energy Star-compliant means fan only runs when cooling is called for, but you can opt out of the default. Did check CU before buying, they do not test A/C's this big, so durability is unknown. At this point so far I would buy another.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tommydents quiet and cool
bought GE A/C as replacement for another brand and was so impressed with how well it performed, quiet and colder than house ever was, and an extra bonus... the electric bill actually went down, not up.. three months later bought a GE washing machine... also works great and so quiet it took us awhile checking on it to be sure it was going thru all the cycles... never have i seen a washer this quiet

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trin 98degrees outside. comfortable 75 inside.
I'm using this wonderful machine right now. We had an older AC unit that just wasn't cutting it on super hot days. Room size is around 800 sq ft with super high ceilings. Plus,we're on the upper level, so we've always had issues with the cool air flowing down the stairs and leaving us to roast up here.
This AC is great so far. I haven't quite figured out the Energy Saving Setting but with standard cool air on full fan speed it's downright chilly in here! Yay! I have it set at 75 currently... and it's not having any issues! I could set this even colder... but when that compressor kicks on and the cool air flows out, it's quite chilly.
Plus, even though this unit is rated for a huge room - it's quieter then the last unit we had. Awesome AC.
Bring on the summer :D

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GE31 Old 1 lasted 31 years!
We just purchased this GE air conditioner. We had an old GE powerthrust air conditioner that just went out. It was 31 years old! Manufactured 1/82. The GE was a little more expensive than the other brands that i looked at but we went with GE because of the service that we got out of the old one. The old saying is, they don't make em like they used to, but I hope we get as good of service out of this one as we did the old one. Time will tell!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tomaso So far so good
Just installed the unit in time for some hot days here in SoCal, and it seems to be working great so far. It's in the living room with overflow to the kitchen and computer room, and we're all comfortable. I installed it in a new hole in the wall so I did not really need to remove the innards from the metal shell as the instructions indicate - but... since there is packing material inside, I still had to get in there, which was a pain. Yes, it was a bit difficult at first to remove the front cover. The trick is (as the instructions sort-of say) is to press the sides of the metal case in. That releases the plastic latches on the front cover. Easy once you have done it. But sliding the innards out and back in is not fun, especially with just one person, and trying to be careful not to touch the radiator fins.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bulletproof This is a 100% true statement
I read the reviews on this item prior to buying it. I am quite mechanicaly inclined so I thought the install would be easy, but I had some trouble with the instructions too. I have to say, it was well worth the effort and the cost! Once I got this baby fired up, I enjoyed the next day inside my home. Just in time! It got up to 107F outside on July 4th weekend in EKU Washington, but our new A/C kept it a cool 74F inside the 24'x70' modest poorly insulated double wide trailer! Unbelieveable, I know!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Most satisfied purchase in a long time.
Just purchased this unit. I read some bad reviews about difficult installations and poorly written instructions.
It is a chore to install but the directions were right on the money. It's also a two man lift to reinstall the unit into the case and running the 230 volt line was advanced for me but I really enjoyed the challenge.
Started blowing cold air right away. Best and most satisfied purchase I have made in a long time.
Thank you Home Depot and GE!
