The unit does not make any rattling noises when operating (if installed properly) and does not vibrate against the window sill (if installed properly).

Answer: 
For a 8ooo BTU, I think so. The fan is forceful, so you have that constant sound of air flow.... but ther are no extra sounds. When the compressor kicks in, there is no change in sound...no kick off or on noise. The only difference is the air flow becomes more forceful when the compressor kicks in.
I don't think if would wake me and I'm a picky sleeper. I could watch TV with the ac on too.

A slight hum or roar sound can be heard from the compressor when it cycles on and off. When you hear this noise, the unit is operating normally to provide cooling. It is important that it is instlled properly to reduce vibration.
Thank you for considering GE!

Why is my unit not cooling the room?

This question is from 8,000 BTU 115-Volt Electronic Window Air Conditioner with Remote
Asked by
MIa
July 18, 2013
I live in an apartment, the livingroom and the eating area is attached. I purchased the GE 8,000 BTU 115-Volt Electronic Window Air Conditioner with Remote Model # AEL08LQ last night. It seemed to not cool the area. I thought I had it on COOL, instead it felt like FAN mode. I set to COOL, and HIGH SPEED. The heat in the house was about 88 degrees throughout the night and this morning. I had to leave for work, I am so frustrated. What am I doing wrong? Please don't degrade me, it was much easier when I had the dial ac on my much older unit. I even reset the AC to see if that would take it back to factory settings but no luck. I had the temp set to 64, which is the coldest. The highest is 80 something. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Hello Mia,
Thank you for choosing the GE air conditioner.
I have no way of knowing if the air conditioner was sized properly for the square footage of the room. When a kitchen is also being cooled, 4,000 extra BTU' s are required. An 8,000 BTU air conditiner will cool between 300-350 square feet.

Also consider the temperature of the room when the air conditioner was first turned on. If the room was very hot it will take longer to cool the room. When heat is stored up in walls, furniture, rugs and draperies, it will take longer to cool the room down.
It probably has not had enough time to remove humidity and cool down.
Should you have additional questions, please let us know.

The air conditioner can be installed without the accordian panels if needed but is recommended to install the Panels /EZ Mount kit for support. Please see the installation instructions for complete details and specifications for installation.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 77 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stopped cooling after 3 seasons We live in Maine, so only use room air conditioners for a few weeks a year. This one quit after 3 seasons - and only a 1 year warranty. We were never thrilled with this unit either as it was very loud on all fan settings. We have another GE 6050 BTU's that's great so far..... July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by does what it's supposed to do This a/c comes with all the hardware and accessories needed to install it securely into a window. It runs well and cools the space off nicely. The remote is a nice feature as is the Energy Saver Mode. August 13, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great AC using today's standards I wrote this mainly because many of the negative reviews have clearly done no research or are familiar with window air conditioners made in the last several years. On the noise aspect, most new ACs are noisy due to the fact they are more energy efficient. Why? Since the blowers are now much smaller they spin at many more RPMs than their predecessors. However you also get more CFM as a result. Personally I like the extra noise as it blocks out outside noise completely and is great for sleeping if you like ambient noise like I do. Some mention that they think the unit is cheap because of the styrofoam inside. Nearly all new ACs have that type of insulation now. It acts as a better sound barrier and is meant to help with condensation inside the unit. Open up your old AC and you will see that all that plastic inside does NOT shield you very much and in fact does less to keep insects and air coming in from the outside. One thing I found to be very helpful as far as keeping this unit running at an accurate temperature is to place the temperature probe outside of the unit rather than leaving it inside. This gives a much more accurate temperature reading and allows more comfort and efficiency as a result. Otherwise the probe reads more of what the outside temp is rather than inside, especially when you select the energy saver setting. Last point the unit keeps my 250 sq. foot attic apartment comfortable & cool. The air coming out of the AC is 25 degrees cooler than room temperature, 5 degrees better than than the 20 degree average most ACs have. I keep it on 75 to 77 most of the time depending on how hot it is outside. Only drawback on my review is that I can't speak for durability since I've only owned this about 6 weeks. So far so good is all I can say on that! May 28, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A Little Louder Than Expected, But Good Cooling. Ran a little louder than anticipated, but cools well and seems well built. Not too sure I have figured out how they came up with design of the controls, but it is not very intuitive. October 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this AC Works well Energy cool is great, set the temp and leave , only turns on if house temp goes above your set temp. August 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works This unit is probably overkill for the purpose for which I bought it. I use it to cool a 160 sq. ft. bedroom that I use as my home office for 8 hours a day. When it is 100 degrees outside this unit cools the room down to 75 in about 10 minutes. It's not "terribly" loud; my work involves phone calls and with the unit ~5 feet away from me I can still hear my callers and they don't complain about the noise unless the airflow is pointing directly at the phone (I try to avoid this) in which case it sounds like I'm outside in the wind. Most importantly, running this unit instead of central a/c has lowered our electric bill from $205 to $148 with one month of usage. It will pay for itself by the end of the hot season (which is more than just the "summer" months around here). Had to build a wooden bracket to make this fit into a sideways-sliding window, but it's still cheaper (and, imo, looks better) than buying a unit dedicated to that window type. The instructions "don't recommend" the use of an extension cord with this a/c unit. I've had it plugged into a 50' 14-gauge cord running from the garage to outside my window (all 3 bedrooms are on the same breaker and it trips with the A/C running as well as computers, and other stuff) for over a week with no problems. Tested with a multimeter and the a/c received 115 volts at the end of the cord, and the cord is not hot to the touch. August 22, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great so far We are using the air conditioner in the upstairs of our home. We have a pretty small house, but there are three small bedrooms upstairs. We put the air conditioner in the hallway window hoping to cool all the rooms. We don't need it to be super cold so it has been working well. We also haven't had a very long stretch of warm weather. I will say that the unit is pretty loud. Glad we don't have it in our bedroom. June 2, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great for a shop, horrible for a bedroom Bought this to replace an older window AC. This is a good unit if the only thing you want is a cold room. There are three fan speeds and even when on low it blows everything in the room and is very loud. The condenser itself is barely noticeable over the fan. The other flaw is the energy saver mode. Once it hits the set temperature it shuts off (which it should) but then it starts reading the outside temperature. Even as the room starts to warm up, as long as the outside temp is below the set temp, it will not turn on. Other units with the energy saver will cycle the room air every 5 - 10 to check temp, but this one does not. Thinking about returning it. May 21, 2012
