Definitely does the job!
Customer review from frigidaire.com logo
I bought this about a month or so ago, I wanted an affordable yet decent air conditioning unit for my living room. I absolutely love how quickly it fills my living room with cool refreshing breeze of cool air on absolutely dreadful humidity filled summer days. It's literally a breath of fresh air after being in the hot sun all day long. Definitely recommended and a must buy for a small budget!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I bought this for my two bedroom home and was a little skeptical because of the size but it does an excellent job cooling down the entire apartment. I would definitely recommend. Packs a nice punch for the small size. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Customer review from frigidaire.com logo
I bought this little window unit a little over a month ago and it was the smartest move I could make. I put it in my bedroom window and it cools the whole room really fast and makes sleeping possible for me again. Excellent air conditioner and I do recommend this.

I had high hopes for this air conditioner, considering I needed a 5,000-6,000 BTU model, and an easy to install option. I was looking to replace my older LG model, it still worked, but it was getting up there in years used. This AC was easy to purchase, and was delivered to my door in less time than I thought, which was excellent. Although, that speaks more of the store than the unit, I suppose! The installation was not easy at all, as I have brackets that need to be used for a second floor air unit. Granted, they are part of our renters association, so there is not getting around using them, but I have not had an issue with AC units in the passed, nor do my neighbors. There is a large gap of open air space between the air and the brackets, so A TON Of insulation, foam, and weather seal was used to combat the open air spaces. The first week, the air cooled the room a decent amount, but was loud and made gurgling sounds throughout the use time. Weeks 2- 3 it cooled down the room, but didn't make it cold by any means, which was disappointing. In rain storms, the unit labors to work well, usually requiring a shut off. I gave this unit a month test, to see how it held up in all weather conditions, heat waves, thunderstorms, with and without weather seal, and I am not happy. One month in, after two hours of running, the room temp has only dropped minimal degrees, and I live in a very hot and humid climate. Looking to purchase another unit now, middle of heat blazing July. If you are looking to purchase it, the price draws you in, but the overall unit doesn't hold up to expectation. Barely cools a medium sized room, takes hours and hours of running consistently to make a dent in the temperature. Was installed and re-installed three different times to drain, and re-seal. Not Happy.

This compact AC does what we needed it to do, just take the stickiness out of the air. We needed a small unit for narrow windows and this fits great using just one of the accordion fillers on one side. In our one level small ranch it keeps us comfortable but it isn't cold. Even standing in front of the unit it just feels nice and cool. We don't like the chill of an air-conditioned space so this is perfect for us but someone who wants a cold space this may not cut it. The biggest drawback: It is a bit louder than other units we've had.

Hello, Me.

Thanks for sharing your experience.

I’m disappointed to hear you are not getting the best cooling performance from your air conditioner.

Here are some tips that will help you get the best cooling performance from your AC unit.

*Ensure the capacity of the room air conditioner fits your room size for efficient and satisfactory operation. You may visit Home Depot’s “Installation and Services” section to learn further details about the correct BTU’s for your room.

* Try installing your 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 your air conditioner’s workload.

Should you need us, please give us a call. Our Customer Care Team can be reached at 800-374-4432, and available Monday through Friday from 8:30 am-8 pm EST.

Perfect solution
Customer review from frigidaire.com logo
I own several apartments in St. Louis. Boy, our summers are hot! I like to keep my residents cool with Frigidaire's window units. They save energy because you don't have to cool the entire apartment all the time. The 5000 BTU packs a punch. I buy two or three of them for each apartment.
