Questions & Answers

Is there any expandable sides on this air conditioner?

Asked by: Laura
Yes plus insulating sheets to cover them

Does this have accordion style for the sides of unit to fit window like in the pics?

Asked by: Beth13
Yes it has the side panels, funny they don't like to show that in the pics because it's kinda important. Also it has extra pieces of insulation that you can cut to fit over the accordion panels to help keep the heat out and the cool in. I thought that was a nice extra that I've never seen before. If only it wasn't doing some odd behavior I would like this a lot more. My display keeps shutting off even though the unit is still running. I have to hit a button on the remote to "wake it up" again.

On "eco" mode, the unit cools to the preset temperature, then does not turn back on. Is my unit broken or am I doing something wrong?
Asked by: HDAdam
I have a similar problem. The unit is running but the display shuts off. I have to hit a button on the remote to "wake up" the display again. After it wakes up if I hit + or - it will change the setting for temperature, then a few seconds later another temperature appears which I assume is the actual room temperature. This is handy to know since you know how many degrees it will have to go to cool down to the desired setting. But nothing in the manual says anything at all about this and whether this is normal or whether this is a problem. I hope someone from GE support can answer this question. Thanks.

8,000 BTU 115-Volt Smart Window Air Conditioner with Remote in Gray is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 416.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Little Air Conditioner, but app falls short! The AEC08LY, is a good little unit. I am using it to cool a shed in the hot summer months in the desert. Thus, on hot days I just want to keep the area under 100 degrees. I believe it will do this well. I love being able to monitor the temperature and then use my app to turn the unit on. However, this summer I would like to use the app timer to just turn on mid day and off in evening. The app can do this, but it doesn't allow turning the unit on in Eco Mode. Since it is just a shed I plan on always using Eco mode. I can start the unit with the app in Eco Mode, but no option for this setting when using the timer in the app. Thus, I plan on using a smart plug for a work around. I shouldn't have to do that, this is a big flaw in the app and should be an easy fix, but so far GE has no plans on adding Eco mode to the timer. Other then that the unit cools well and the noise is acceptable, it pushes the air well for a small unit.

Easy to assemble, and comes with some nice extras for insulating the window and unit during installation. Set-up for the app took a few tries, but once it got connected, I was able to unplug the unit, move it, and plug back in without any issues...the app still had the unit identified and able to be controlled. Disregard folks complaining about the display "turning off", it is a feature, not a problem. The ECO setting is by far the most efficient, and I like that the app shows me the rough value of energy consumption (super low with fan only, really low with the condenser on, and the fact it shuts the unit off to not consume energy at all until needed is genius.) If you are energy-conscious, or track closely like I do (thanks all electric house), this is so far a great option. Heat of the summer will be the true test of this unit, but so far, so good. Very happy with the purchase, and honestly, considering another.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed This particular brand and model, along with the smaller model AEL06LV received high ratings and recommendation from Consumer Reports, so I bought the two from Home Depot. I followed the recommended BTU for the room size I was going to put them in. I am disappointed with my purchase because it doesn't cool the entire room without the help of fans to circulate the air. The fans are not strong enough .Also, once it reaches the desired temperature setting, it takes a long time for it to turn back on again even though the room feels warm. It feels like its built-in thermostat is not correct. ( This is when placed the "energy saver" setting). Even when set to "cool", the air that's blowing doesn't feel cool enough. These units replaced the older window ACs we had for 12 years, which did a fine job in my opinion. The only thing I like about these GE window AC's are they are quieter than most window AC's. That was my deciding factor in choosing them over similar highly rated brands and models.

We were considering purchasing the GE 6000 BTU A/C unit but this one has more features. It looks good and I believe the extra power saves us electricity costs in that the unit isn't working as hard. We don't need the wi fi so we haven't even tried that. Having the 4 way adjustable air flow is important and keeps the chilly air from blowing directly on us. We were concerned about the noise level as some reviewers have indicated to be a problem; (after all, it's blowing air), but it is no louder than a standard box fan. I have no issues with the simple remote. This the 3rd GE window A/C unit we purchased at Home Depot and haven't had any complaints with any of them. We're glad we bought it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from loud and uneaven cooling Bought it because I needed a new ac. This is louder than i thought. Shelled out a few extra bucks for the wifi... well its been a week and i cant connect it to my phone. On eco it turns off every now and then completly. I was expecting the compressor to, but it would leave the fan on. Well I was wrong. It works for 15 minutes, then completly shuts down and does this cycle again and again. The remote has what seemes to be buttons to control a future screen in the remote but not the one i got. Overal is it an ac that gets the job done for my 15x9 bedroom..... yes. Can it do a better job than my old daewoo ac that was rated for 5000 btu.... no. It was quiter and kept my room at a closer temp range. This is louder than the 12k btu i used to have for the kitchen. Will probably sell it if i cant return it and get a different brand

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features for the Energy Conscious! Have to admit, I was hesitant to jump on the SMART device band-wagon with a Window AC unit, but I am so happy I did. I am, at least for the moment, living in an all electric house, so monitoring and maintaining energy efficiency for the family is a must. This unit not only performs very well at cooling our space (sun in the AM, and humid climate). I love that you can set the temp and make up a schedule, or base it off of your gps location on your phone. All the while, it is substantially quieter than the other units we have in the house. I am considering replacing the unit I have in my home office for another one of these. Only quarrel, pairing the device with my phone and wi-fi the first time took a few tries, but once connected, it has been nothing short of fantastic.
