How many BTU for 1 bedroom apt 18x30

This 8000 btu I believe is rated for a 17 x 20 room. Mine is 15 x 19 so is fine. You may want a 10,000 btu due to the length of that room. We did have a 5200 btu in this same room and it did fine for several years. So you may be just fine with 8000 btu's, may take a bit longer to cool down is all.

The extra room is to accomadate the adjustable window-opening closure included with the unit. If your window opening is exactly 19-5/8", the wiidth of the a/c unit, you could install the a/c unit without the adjustable piece. If the window opening is wider than 19-5/8", you need the extra width to allow the addition of the adjustable closure device.

loud
I purchased this unit to replace another LG unit that died after 5 years. From the time I got the unit it was loud. The kind if loud that has you deciding between cool or quiet. I normally watch the tv in the NEXT room at volume 7, but when the a/c unit is on the tv is at 20 to hear it. Next, 11 months after the purchase date we have our first heat wave of the season. The unit stops working and gives error code CH34. That means the unit is overheating. To fix it, the a/c unit must be unplugged 30 minutes, then plug the unit in and turn it on. Voila! It works again. However, I found myself unplugging the unit 3-5 times A DAY. And while the a/c is unplugged the house continues to get hotter. Finally I call LG to ask a repair person come out since i’m still in the 365 day warranty. I call at 2:00

I am cooling a 1000 sq ft area with this A/C and you will freeze your hind end off!!! BUT I love it! This is why I bought it because I like my place COLD and this is the way it stays. It is very quiet, I was pleased with that but I don't like that every time I turn it on, I have to press the power button on the remote and then press the mode button because when I turn it on, it comes on in the "Energy Saver" mode and doesn't come on when I need it to. I had to put a piece of cardboard on the top, above the vents, to direct the cool air downward because it blows toward the ceiling. I've tried turning the vents downward and it's down as far as it will go (I didn't want to force it downward any further, I was afraid I'd break it). Other than that, I love it!!!

Does the job... quietly
I’ve had this 12,000 btu unit for about a year and have no complaints. It’s mounted in my bedroom window and I sleep soundly while it cools from the bedroom into the bathroom and down the hallway. I used an a/c brace to install it which made installation quick and easy. This unit is well worth the money.

Being replaced in less than a year
Bought in august in Florida. Is being replaced due to frost build-up at set at 77. Would not turn off even when power button was used. Casing was rusting also. Not used very often because winter started. Two days talking to LG trying to get tech here. We had to take the unit out ourselves cause that’s not his job. Now I will try to get a replacement. That will probably be another two days getting it done. Cause that’s not their job either. At least they are replacing it with another pile of junk. I hope. Another story I’m sure. Please, can’t we make something in the USA. I have Fredricks that are near 20 years old working.

I've had the unit up and running for a week now. I have the 8,000 btu/h model to cool a 100 sq ft office. This unit is oversized form the sq. ft. per LG recommendations, however i wanted a larger size for the cool air to spill out and help cool other rooms. So far the unit has performed as expected. The energy saver mode is great. It is programmed to be a 3minute delay to check temperature, i wish this time limit could be changed, 5 or 10 minutes would be better for me. Either way the feature is much appreciated and will save me some money on my utility bill. One issue i want to point out if the manufacturer were to ever read this, is that the filler panels are shotty at best. The insulation strips, panels, and any/all foam used to insulate around the unit is low quality. I wish more was invested in this as a lot of efficiencies are lost through leakage. I ended up buying all aftermarket insulation. Also the panels do not allow good water drainage if you were to experience a wind driven rain into the unit. Poor design here, i will be building a shelter over the unit to prevent weather and direct sunlight on the condenser inefficiencies. I wish LG would market an aftermarket hail/sun guard for the condenser fins. Also, i used the AC Safe toolless bracket to mount the unit. See my review in that section of the mount.

it does its job. I needed this AC, as the covid-19 pandemic forced me to set a home-office for the summer. I went to pick it up at Home Depot in Milwaukee, and also got some extra stuff to do a proper mount.
