This unit definitely puts the chill in the air. We put it in our master bedroom which is
16 x 28. It does a fantastic job even on low. I would recommend this unit to everyone. A shout out to Home Depot for the prompt order and delivery service.
We did our research for a product that fit our needs for the sunroom we built (14×18), our ac unit with one vent to the sunroom just didn't cut it with the western sun hitting the sunroom full force in the afternoon. This unit not only cooled the room perfectly it is also energy efficient. Little yearly cost for those on a household budget. We are now enjoying the sunset over the mountains with family and friends. Thank you Home Depot for your online ordering system and for getting it sooner than expected.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Few homes in the Pacific North West have central air as it isn't often required. Late July though September we have some above 90 F days that are very uncomfortable I have an open living room, dining room and kitchen area at one end of the house. I installed the window air conditioner in an outside wall window which is central to the
great room. I close all the bedroom doors which is about half the square footage of my home. The 12000 BTU unit keeps the great room area at a comfortable 73 F on a 90 F plus day. Once the sun goes down and it cools off, can open up the house.
My partner and I moved into a 2 bedroom apartment (approx. 900 sq ft) and purchased this unit for our open-plan living/dining/kitchen/entry and another 5,000 btu Frigidaire unit for our bedroom a few months ago. Both are working well, but we've been especially happy with this larger unit - temps outside have been 90-100 degrees with 70%+ humidity for the past week and our apartment has remained very comfortable. Straightforward installation, quick cooling, and the timer and economy functions are working perfectly. It's not silent, but I didn't expect it to be. Like all other units, the faster you run the fan, the more noise you can expect. It is quieter than most other a/c units I've encountered, though.
The only drawback is that the temperature gauge on the remote never matches the temperature set on the unit itself. For ex, we'll set the unit to keep the temperature at 73 degrees, but when the unit turns itself off because it believes the correct temperature has been reached, we'll find the remote measures the temperature as being 82 degrees. We don't have a room thermometer, so who knows? However, this is only a concern if you need your area to be a very specific temperature (in which case, buy a separate room thermometer). We just need to feel comfortable, so the exact numerical temperature of the room is meaningless to us. It would be nice if every feature worked perfectly, but it's not worth taking an entire star off in my view, so 5 stars from me.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I live in the desert, so it regularly reaches 105+ degrees F every single day for months during the summer. Our rental house has a vent system with evaporative cooling; however, if there is any bit of humidity, the system doesn't work at all. Monsoon season is completely unbearable, and our poor main living space had no possible way to cool down (the bedroom and office both have smaller Frigidaire AC units).
All I can say is WOW, did this unit exceed my expectations. I was worried it would be ugly because of the online photos, but it actually fit in the front living room window perfectly and blends in aesthetically, such that it's barely noticeable in just about any window. Installation could not possibly have been easier; I didn't even need to look at the directions. There is plenty of packing and various pieces included for insulation to fit anyone's needs. Of course, the unit is heavy and large, and most of its volume is outside (thank goodness), but if you're worried about outside aesthetics you shouldn't be shopping for a window unit anyway.
I've only had this a few days but I'm already impressed. I have it on the first floor of my home, which is roughly 700 sq. ft consisting of my living room, dining room and kitchen. The entire first floor was cold in a half hour. The digital temperature settings are extremely convenient so you don't have to worry about it staying on when it doesn't need to be. This is better than any other unit I've ever purchased!
My wife and I live in a 2-bedroom apartment. We purchased this A/C and had the maintenance crew install it in the living room close to the TV. Our concern was it might be too loud to hear the TV over the cooling fan noise (see photo for closeness). Not so. We set the easy to use fan control on the lowest speed and can hear the TV just fine. We set the auto temperature at 72 and it holds perfectly. The remote control gives you all the choices for temp/speed/etc. It works better than we had hoped for and we are enjoying a cool apartment thanks to the new machine. One other thing... it was shipped on time and arrived one day earlier than expected. Well done Home Depot.
Great unit at decent price! Works well and is efficient. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating is that it arrived with slight fin damage and the remote does not have a read out screen. Does not effect the unit overall but a little disappointing.
