Will this unit fit in a 22 inch window? Thanks

Asked by: Dancer
This unit is 21 1/8 inches wide. Once you install the slides (wings) it would be too wide for your 22" window. Depending on the type of window you have, you may be able to support without the slides. But make sure you can secure window to prevent movement while this unit is installed.

can it be installed as an in-wall unit?

Asked by: STX001
Through the wall installation is NOT recommended. This unit does NOT have the necessary support hardware (sleeve, etc) to keep it safely installed through the wall. Additionally, there are exhaust vents located on the left and right sides (towards the rear of unit) that may be blocked if through the wall installation is attempted.

Customer Reviews

Aros App-Enabled 8,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Look elsewhere I wanted to like this AC. I really did. But, I didn't. It really isn't as good as it looks. It is rough, loud and just plain doesn't do all that well. The thing didn't break in the 4 months I needed, but it just didn't perform any better than another cheap AC. This one had an app, true, but other than turning on the AC remotely, it had zero advantage over one that is cheaper. When I bought mine, I read reviews that said the same thing. I bought it anyway. If you want to have a connected home, keep looking. The Qurky Aros is a poor choice for getting connected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Air Conditioner! We can put men on the moon but can't figure out how to build a quiet air conditioner. This one is the quietest I have ever come across and in every other way it is an excellent buy. I will be purchasing another one. You don't get the cycle noise of the compressor kicking in. It is an even hum. After a month, it learns how you use it and programs it self. It is a high quality appliance. A lot of thought went into making it. It is worth the price and has a lot of nice features. I recommend this air conditioner. I won't buy another brand after purchasing this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job, but wouldn't buy it again A little late with this review, since I bought this unit 2 years ago. It works well enough to cool off my small bedroom and hallway. However, the display lights are so BRIGHT I have to tape multiple pieces of paper over them (like little flaps) so I can sleep at night. Considering part of the reason I liked this AC was its sleek design, I was pretty annoyed. App connected to the device but doesn't accurately represent the room temp or whether the AC is on/off (so you don't actually know if you're turning it on or off remotely, on your way home from work perhaps). If the box wasn't already tossed, I would have returned this AC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed! This is our first experience with a window a/c unit & looked at several different brands, but when we saw the Quirky + GE we were sold. And we have not been disappointed! It is very effective at cooling, looks nice & is easy to control with our phones. The app tracks our usage so we always know how much electricity the a/c has used. We can leave it on a higher temp setting while we're gone & start cooling our home a little while before we get back. I have read that other people don't like the noise level &/or the lighted display (too loud & too bright) - we like the white noise, but it doesn't seem to be louder than the a/c units our friends have. The light is only displayed for a minute or so & no brighter than a digital alarm clock. We're very happy with it & planning on buying a 2nd one for the living room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern Connected A/C Unit I read some indifferent reviews on this product but I found the unit to be modern, attractive and works great with the Wink home system. Unlike traditional A/C units the air output is from the top but is angled not straight up which gives a great overflow of cool air. Only one issue I came across related to the components included, there were two retaining strips which did not appear in the instructions. These actually slide down on either side of the unit to retain the screen, they are a very tight fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best AC EVER! I have a few of these. they have functioned flawlessly and do a great job. I control them all in a group from the app and it works just like central A/C. Can't say enough good things about it. Don't listen to the bad reviews! They're doing it wrong if they don't like them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from have purchased better It is louder than the 10 year old air conditioner it is replacing. The temp setting lights on the front of it and the blinking light in the center do make great night lights, if that is what you want. Now this is my fault, I did not research the item before I purchased it. I assumed that there would be a dedicated remote for the A.C. However, there is not. BUT you can download an app for your smartphone. Now here is the issue, 1) not everyone has a smart phone. 2) Not everyone who has a smart phone wants to take it to bed w/ them to control the A.C. 3) If you do sleep w/ you smart phone, do you want to locate the app in the middle of the night to adjust your A.C. or would you be happy picking up a remote and doing you adjustment. I prefer a dedicated remote over an app.
