Yes it does. They come with the a/c unit in the box. There is a minor installation (please read the directions to get them installed correctly as one is specifically designed for the left and one for the right) but once installed they help sheild loss of cool air and keep the bugs out. I recently installed two GE units to aid our central heating/cooling system cool our house to the desired temps. The recent heat wave (July 2015) that has set new records across the nation has everyones central a/c systems running constantly to keep their houses cool and these GE units work effortlessly to help cool my house. I found through price comparison, browser research and actual ownership that GE has the best prices, a/c units on the market and you cant go wrong installing these unit/s to battle the heat. I still have two in their boxes ready to install if we get hit with a hurricane that knocks out our power (& the central a/c). Back in 2005 for Hurricane Katrina one GE a/c unit running off my $4000.00 Wacker Portable Generator was enough to keep my family (when they returned home one&1/2 weeks later) as well as my friends family (who stayed with us when they returned) cool for the duration of the power outage that lasted over a month as Entergy worked day/night to replace all the downed lines& damaged transfer stations. I had stayed as a Law Enforcement Ofc. on the Northshore Anyway when you do install the unit, those side accordian spacers regardless of make are all kind of thin so what I do is use the styrofoam packaging material to increase the thermal insulation properties. If you do this correctly they will not impead the normal function of the unit and it will help to keep the heat on the outside (from the unit as well as the weather) and from creating hotspots/inefficient weather seal on either side of the a/c. Once again these accordian window seals are an industry standard and are all inefficient ways to insulate the void created on either side of a window a/c unit. I surmise that it keeps the cost in manufacturing down so do the sensable thing and recycle that styrofoam packaging to keep the cold air in, the heat out and your energy bill low. Read Less

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 356 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Air Conditioner We purchased this GE 8,100 air conditioner to cool 2 bedrooms in a split level home, we have a GE 10,050 that we purchased 2 years ago to cool the living space. We love the energy saver setting and the remote is magnetized so it attaches to the air cond. so its always accessible. it was put to the test this weekend when it got to 90 degrees. it performed great!!! lots of extras come with it like foam pieces for insulation. don't hesitate to purchase this unit. June 27, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Too LOUD!! I purchased this air conditioner 3 weeks ago and have used numerous times. We placed it in our living room but it is so loud that we can't watch TV or even have a conversation without yelling. If you like noise while sleeping I would recommend getting this for a bedroom but not for any living space. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dead after 2 seasons. Same problem as "Breezy". Used for 2 seasons, June through September, just installed for this season and air temp at outlet only reaches 78 degrees. Filter and fins are clean and clear. Just as well I guess, because this unit makes such a racket when running that we couldn't hold a normal conversation. I replaced it with a Friedrich unit that is much, much quieter and cools much more evenly. June 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great AC! None of the Local Home Depot stores had this in stock; had to drive 1hr away to south NJ to pick it up but I'm glad I did. Works great and cools better than my Friedrich AC. Thinking about getting another. (start stocking them in Home Depot's in northern NJ!!) June 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great! I have only had this air conditioner for a short time. So far everything is working great. I bought it for my daughters apartment living room. We have found that with the help of a box fan to circulate the cool air in different directions that this unit will cool her whole apartment. We are very happy with this AC. June 28, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bad purchase Motor went out in it already would not purchase again. Called Home Depot they said since it was used they couldn't take it back or refund me. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Broken in less than a year I bought this back in June 2015. The product worked fine for about four months but wasn't needed often after that due to the cooler weather. I tried to use it for cooling again this summer and it's completely unusable. The temperature stays above 80 degrees and nothing cool is coming out. I'm having to get help from GE to see if they will fix it under the warranty or if I'm out of luck. I wouldn't buy this model again. June 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works fine for me! Works fine for me. I swear some people are never satisfied. Cools my whole living kitchen and bathroom. Got the 5,000 for bedroom and works great too! Complaining about everything makes you old, and dull. This passes the quality, value and conveinence test with flying colors! :) June 16, 2016
