      Answer

      i just bought this and it DOES not require any draining in AC mode... you only need to drain if you use dehumidifier. i just called frigidaire to confirm this.

          It is quite loud. I have mine in my living room, when watching television I normally keep my tv on 20 (volume), with this running I need to raise to about 26-30, depending if I am running it in low fan speed or high fan speed.

            The hookup to the window is for exhaust, not for air intake.

            Hey Ev! When the air conditioner FFPA0822R1 displays a “P1” error that means the bottom tray is full and needs to be drained. Please, do not hesitate to contact us directly or via the Q&A forum on this website for any additional assistance. –Thanks!-

          Hello, I just moved into a apartment I'm interested to see if this unit will work in a normal wall out let and also how many amps will it pull? thank you.   (4 Answers)

            Answer

            Yes. Regular 115 outlet. Draws 8 amps. Circuit breakers in houses are either 15 amp, or 20 amp. 12 amps is normal max run time load (80%) for a 15 amp circuit. 16 amps is same for 20 amp circuit. Both may have more than 1 outlet on the same circuit, so watch what else is plugged in elsewhere. Generally, this AC unit is good to use, 1 on a 15 amp with other loads as well, or 2 on a 20 amp, no other steady devices. No one actually limits the load to that guidance and runs higher loads w/o breaker popping. ThIs unit also has 3 fan speeds, (harder to find) and sleep mode.

          I plan to put this unit in my sunroom and I am concerned about the noise level. All window units are too loud and drown out conversations.   (3 Answers)

            Answer

            Most units will put out a higher noise level on a high fan setting. The lower setting on this unit is relatively quiet. The 3 setting level is louder but that is typically used for a "fast cool" situation which is not typical. Also, it depends upon the acoustics of the area being used: rooms with hard surfaces such as glass will be louder than carpeted areas. This unit has a satisfactory noise level on level 1 and two.

            How is the humidity drained from the unit...via a garden hose?   (3 Answers)

              Answer

              Hello GailD! There are two ways to drain the water that comes into the air conditioner FFPA0822R1. The dehumidifying drain outlet is located in the middle of the back of the air conditioner and there is an additional bottom drain for the air conditioner as well. You would plug your hose into the dehumidifier drain hose outlet for proper draining and it is drained out by gravity not through a pump. We hope this information is helpful to you. –Thanks!-
