How long it takes for it to cool a room and what number is the coldest

Asked by Linkcu82 August 28, 2018

Hi, Linkcu82. Thanks for your post. We are unable to give an exact time due to we are not aware of your environmental factors. Some friendly tips to keep in mind to get the best cooling performance for your home comfort appliance. *Ensure the capacity of the room air conditioner fits your room size for efficient and satisfactory operation. * Try installing the room air conditioner on the shady side of your home/room. A window that faces north is best because it is shaded most of the day. * External house shading with trees, plants or awnings will help reduce the air conditioner’s workload. Hope this helps. Feel free to give us a call, should you have any additional questions. Our team will be happy to assist you further and can be reached at 888 203 1389. We are ready to take your call Monday through Friday from 8am-8pm EST and Saturday from 9am-6pm. Regards- Derrick

Asked by Lynnea July 15, 2018

You need to be able to exhaust the hot air or it will defeat the purpose. Drainage will also be an issue.

Hi Diane! Thank you for your inquiry. We don't recommend placing the air conditioner on its side. However, if this does occur we recommend 24 hours before use. We hope this helps! -Thanks-

Too Hot No More
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this unit to cool down our 650sqft home. Works pretty well.

This is day 2 using the 12,000 btu portable air unit and so far we are impressed. Vented exhaust to window and tightened cap on drain outlets per manufactured directions for OPTIMAL performance. Moisture now drains through exhaust vent. WE ARE NOT USING A SECOND HOSE when running the air!! This unit is cooling our 12x24 Florida room, which is not well insulated (except roof) and in full sun with outside temp of 86°, and no central air. Sure hope this portable unit continues performing like this in the FL sun and continues to keep our room at 72° when set on medium speed. The noise from fan is not too bad, unit turns off and on. (Do not understand why this unit isn't performing for others! READ directions even if you had a portable unit before as they differ. Allow unit stand upright for several hours before using, we waited 12 hours! Cap all water outlets and allow unit to drain through exhaust.)

Very Cool portable A/C unit
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought the portable a/c about a month ago. It works Great! It kept a 400 sq ft room very cool and comfortable. It's not loud at all. It was very easy to set up too. The wheels make it easy to move when needed. And the remote is a great feature.

Absolutely exceeded expectations
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this a few weeks ago during a Southern California Santa Ana heat spell! This has helped me get to sleep at night without tossing and turning in sweat ! I set it at 72 with the auto setting and it keeps the room which is 30 feet by 15 ft with 12 ft vaulted ceilings nice and cool ! There are so many choices but Frigidaire has been in the cooling business longer than most. I would definitely recommend Frigidaire for all your appliances !

Server room cooling solution
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My company has a isolated server room that was never effectively cooled by the roof top unit. I purchased the Frigidaire unit and it works great. The room temperature is cool and stable.

This was a gift or I would have returned it due to frustration trying to vent it. Like another reviewer, I have casement windows and their window kit does not work for casements windows. Anyone want to buy mine? I can't leave the window open since I have a cat. STUPID design! for exhaust. Plastic Adapter "hooks" into back panel, but back panel is angled and it is hard to get my hands around a 5 plus inch adapter to screw it on. If the adapter gets damaged, you are out-of-luck. Hose is 5 inch diameter, which is non standard in the US. Hard to find hose and/or vents at 5 inch diameter. 4 inch dryer vents are readily available. Even 6 inch parts can be found readily, but NOT 5 inch. WHERE is Catalog for spare parts? Attached are 2 pix showing my problems. All that said, the A/C will work for a small room, but expect your Electricity bill to rise significantly. GIven the headaches, I would not buy this myself.

Works well overall
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been overall pretty happy with my AC unit. It cools well and for the price was one of the more powerful units. My only problem with it is the display. It is very hard to read the modes. At night it is impossible unless using a flashlight.
by CoffeemanC
Great Unit!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this unit a month ago to cool our basement home office that only has glass block windows. I cut the exhaust vent panel to fit in the vent of the glass block window. The unit works amazingly and cools very well!
