      A:  Hi there, our valued customer! If the wall thickness is 8-1/2 or more, add aluminum flashing over the bottom of the frame opening to assure no water can enter the area between the inner and outer walls.-Christian

          DO NOT BUY!!! Lasted only 2 years. Lost refrigerant due to poor design. Cooper tubing extends all the way to the bottom where it sits in its own condensation and corrodes. What a huge disappointment. A name brand that one would expect better from. Needless to say I will never buy or recommend this company’s products.

            terrible product. will not cool at all
            this product arrived great but that was the high point of my experience. First of all it took a different plug. After that was resolved, it would blow warm air only. it has been 4 days and it still will not cool. In my opinion it is a complete piece of junk and should not be considered for purchase. For reference I attached a picture of the temperature setting that it has been for the last 4 days will a thermometer states that it is still 92. complete waste of money

              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just put mine in a week ago works fine. Yes it is true you can see what the temp is although if you set your temp just (hit the remote on button once and shows temp on unit. And if you hit it a second time it turns off. It does not show on the remote temp like the older units just on the air conditioner.
                Always reliable
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my 4 th Frigidaire I have had in the. last 15 years.love the energy star features and easy installation . So glad the dimensions were consistent because I have a custom opening in my wall.
                  Nice Product
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very pleased with the finished appearance and performance. Installation went nicely. Hope it lasts as long as my previous 18,000 BTU, Frigidaire A/C, which was 30 years.
                    Absolute Beast!
                    - Seriously heavy, you either need tools (like a hydraulic table), or friends you don't mind losing, to get this installed. - Will suck all the heat out of your south facing 1,800 sqft house. - Standing in front of this thing while it's running is like doing a cold plunge. - Unit features remote sensing, so you can go off of the remote's temp instead of the unit's temp. - Reasonably quite, especially when you consider the amount of heat it's eating.

                      Great Air Conditioner. However I don't like the way it switches to ECONO mode when turned on. It also does this when the timer is set. I don't like that feature.

                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Cools my apartment,Totally.Very quietly.
                        Not Compatible With U.S. Plug In
                        The unit is lovely. Fit into the window perfectly. It was a challenge to assemble, due to the fact it needs to be taken apart to install it. It seemed perfect for our needs, but unfortunately this unit does not have a standard U.S. plug. I have lived overseas when my Dad was stationed in different countries. This air conditioner may work fine there, but HERE you would need to rewire your home, so not cost effective. Not sure how you can get this thing wired to use in America.
