Can I put this in a room without a window and just set it on a table or does it drain water so I would need to allow for that and how would I do that?

Answer: 
You need it to be in a window, the heat that is the room has to be expelled somewhere and placing it in a room will not work.

Answer: 
This unit must be in a window or other opening that lets the back 2/3 be outside. That is because it removes heat from the front side by venting it out the back. If you just put it in a room you will never remove any heat from the room. You do get some condensation that drains as well.

Answer: 
No, it drains water and also the process to make cold air creates a lot of heat in the back of the unit which must be vented to the outdoors in some way.

while it would still blow cold air out the front it also will put out heat in the rear. It does not have a drain hole.

The stock answer is that you cannot use an extension cord. The truth is that you can use an extension cord BUT ONLY IF the actual wire in the cord is heavy enough to carry that much current that distance. Most extension cords are too small.

Home depot will have the necessary wire and ends to assemble a suitable cord. Be sure that you are not overloading the outlet or circuit that you plug it in to. Remember that a circuit in a house often powers several items, so be sure the total circuit is not being overloaded. Read Less

If you use a extension cord make sure it is a VERY heavy one. never try to use those light weight ones as they are not made to carry a load like a small A/C and they can get hot and possibly start a fire.

Answer: 
Hello Tinkey,
GE room air conditioners must be plugged directly into a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet. It is not recommended to use an extension cord or plug the unit into a surge protector or multi-outlet adaptor.
Consult your Owner's Manual and/or Installation Instructions for the electrical requirements for the
specific model.

Answer: 
If that width is the inner jam width, as in the spacing between the window opening, it will fit if you only put the guards on one side. Your going to have to modify it a lot since at such a small width it would be too tight to fit into the widow .

Answer: 
Yes, it will probably work. The unit itself is about 19" wide and you could probably use just one of the side extenders that slide onto the unit, or use a 1-2" piece of foam to fill in the gap.

Answer: 
Kaylee, you are correct but you will have to add either foam or some type of fabric to block or seal the gaps. the rest should be a formality. the unit is less than 20inches across.

Hi Bonni,
Yes, the unit is Energy Star. If you look on the left side where the unit info is you should see the Energy Star Symbol. I tried to attach a picture of my label, but for some reason it wont attach.
Another place to look is on the owners manual and there should be a star next to the model # AEL06*

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 143 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lasted 1yr Bought this last summer 2014 and it worked fine. This summer 2015 the thermostat does not work properly, as a result the energy saver mode is useless. This AC unit thermostat is off by over 10 degrees! I have it set to go on whenever room temp goes above 70 degrees, the temp in bedroom is 73 degrees but AC unit saids it's 62 degrees and as a result it never turns on and I'm lefy sweating in my sleep. May 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Efficient window unit We have an upstairs bedroom suite that was gutted and converted from an attic, i.e. it can get a little stuffy and warm. This little unit is perfect for the square footage (300-400) and has an Energy Saver feature that's nice to leave on for the day just to keep it from getting stupid-hot up there. After dinner, we change it to the Cool setting and we're ready for cool, nighttime sleeping. Because this is a window unit made for a smallish area, I took into consideration that it's going to be louder than central air or even a fan, for that matter. As for installation, my very capable, yet non-handyman husband was able to install the unit without problems or injury. July 25, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sets up easily Sets up pretty easily, 30 mins or so with leveling required. Also bought and installed an AC support as mounting on second floor and wanted extra precaution against falling. I installed in bedroom, does a good job cooling the room, struggles a little to cool adjoining kitchen with the refrigerator (put a box fan between rooms to move air), probably 300 sq ft total. Fan is noisy, whether the compressor is running or not -- I observed a Frigidaire unit recently and noticed that it was much quieter. Display very bright, I cover it up at night but in order to use remote display must be uncovered. Remote is convenient. July 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FIX FOR ENERGY SAVER MODE Ill get right to the point. Take the front panel off. Take the filter off. The wire with the yellow end is the temp probe. Detach the temp probe from the condenser. Take the 2 plastic tabs off the temp probe. Make a small slit in the filter to run the probe through. Run the probe through the filter and put the filter back on so the wire is coming through it. Then reattach the front panel and at the same time run the probe through a vent opening on the front panel. Now the temp probe is on the outside of the ac unit and it reads the room temp instead of the very cold air right next to the condenser. With the temp probe right next to the condenser, the probe doesn't read the right temp unit the fan turns back on to draw warm room temperature air over the probe. Ill say probe one more time, lol. GE should hire me. Ill make jet engines!! It is a good ac unit!!!!!!! UNIT May 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Air Conditioner This air conditioner is really efficient and it runs pretty quietly. August 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cools great, but not for night workers. Bought this to replace an 8 year old Fedders 5200btu unit that had a bad compressor. I have a small bedroom, but strong sun from noon onwards. This caused the little Fedders to struggle to keep the room cool as I work nights. This one cools great, but daylight shines right through the vents. Seems like they used a very thin Styrofoam panel that is VERY translucent. If you work nights, like a dark room, and light sensitivity is an issue, you might want to try a different unit. April 29, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A good energy saving product for your bedroom This is perfect for my bedroom. I love the functionality of this AC and since I have to pay my own utilities in the apartment, the energy saver is perfect for me. The option to choose a time frame for the AC and keep it in AUTO when you go to sleep is amazing. I have only used it for a month now, so i am not quite sure about its durability just yet. Overall, I am satisfied. July 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super Cool Cools the room quickly. Great value for its price. June 3, 2013
