      Q:8.7 amps times 115vac equals 1000 watts. How can this be 710 watts and eer of 15? Our utility provider computes our energy bill by volts times amps. Also what is the power factor rating?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi, John. Thanks for your question regarding the Midea 8,000 BTU U-shaped window Air Conditioner. This unit uses an inverter motor, making its power consumption more efficient, stepping up or down depending on cooling. The reading on the website only lists the cooling watts, so it does not include when the fan is running. Have a nice day. Midea Customer Care. (BBB A+ Accredited Business)

          Midea Customer Service is bad
          I received a damaged product. I have been working on communicating with the Midea customer service number listed on the box. It has been a nightmare. I was told by a representative that I would receive a form, by email, that I would need to exchange the product at Home Depot. I would have to bring that, the receipt, and the product back. I have been waiting on the form for almost a week now. I have called, during my lunches, on different days to followup. I am getting the run around.

            Weighs approx. 40 lbs, as long as you don't touch the fins and bend them up, they won't cut your fingers. Read instructions to determine your window type and the best install. Wooden sill install is different than vinyl. Easy to set up and is super quiet and COLD! Be sure to have a (half bubble) tilt on your system to prevent stale water/mold from accumulating in your system..

            Delivered Wrong-Delivered and Left On It’s Side
            The Air Conditioner’s box states “4. DO NOT PLACE UNIT ON ITS SIDE” (because the refrig oil is to remain in the bottom of the compressor). The product looks good on line. Not sure if I recommend it. Didn’t open it. Going to return it for another one

              Don't buy it
              I purchased this unit in March, 2022. HD delivered it to my porch. It was relatively simple to install and provided great cooling for our large bedroom. I noticed on YouTube that several other buyers had trouble with mold, so last fall I looked inside the cold air door and found the fan covered in mold. When I had a contractor look at it, we took photos. When I called the manufacturer customer service department and explained the problem, I was told that I should find a local technician and have it cleaned. The HVAC company I use explained that they would charge more than the value of the unit to clean it.

              Hi Timosky, Thank you for your review of our Midea 12,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner. We apologize for the issues you have experienced with mold build-up in your unit and for the unsatisfactory customer service you've encountered. To prevent mold formation is by sprinkling a teaspoon of baking soda into the back vents of the unit. This may help to prevent further issues. If you have any further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to reach out to us at digitalsupport@midea.com. Have a great day! Midea Customer Support. (BBB A+ Accredited Business) midea

                This unit is awesome! It's in a class of its own when it comes to energy efficiency, low sound levels, and features. I use it as a master bedroom supplemental cooling unit in Texas. Now it's much less costly to sleep at 68 degrees in the summer. It's extremely rare for a window unit to achieve the Energy Star rating. This unit is quiet!

                  Best in Class Window Unit
                  This is the best window unit I have ever evaluated. If you are looking for a quiet and efficient window unit, its not likely its going to get much better than this one. So far I have purchased 4 of these and installed two of them in the wall, which these are not designed for this type of installation. These units are pretty much a compact mini-split package, that saved me the trouble of having to install two separate units, which mini-splits require. In Eco Mode, this unit idled between 200 and 400 watts and Eco Mode was sufficient in keeping the room cool. It also has a seperate dehumidifier function, which will cool and dehumidify the room. I installed an 8000 btu in my 1400 sqft encapsulated crawl space and has kept the humidity below 55%. The others I installed in rooms, the 8000 btu was good enough to keep a 12x20 room cool in Eco Mode. However, its important to have your house properly insulated. These units are AC only and have no heater function. There is no protective grill on the back fin side and just touching them will dent them. Midea should put a protective grill on the back side. These units are heavy, so I recommend two person installation. I also recommend cutting the sides off the box for easier handling of the unit. The box contains the remote, Window Mounting Brackets and Insulation. I recommend you allow this unit to sit in the upright position for 24 hours before installing it, in case it was shipped upside down, to prevent damaging the system in operation. I also recommend this unit be installed with a slight tilt to the outside to prevent condensate water from flowing into window cavity. There are several openings in the bottom of the unit for condensate discharge. I recommend that Midea add a connectable discharge port for long distance discharge. I sealed all but one and added a dedicated condensate drain using PVC Pipe. I save condensate water. I have some very informative videos on the YouTube Channel "Southern Stories". I am a Mechanical Engineer, Home and Commercial Building Inspector. I also evaluate new products as they apply to building science.
