    Works well enough

    Definitely not the best AC but works well enough for a small room. Our bedroom is about 12x20 and it cools it off within 20 min or so. It is kind of loud but it fit in the window without issue and it's been working well. Would be 5 stars if not for the noise and we keep it on 67 to keep it cool. anything above that feels kind of stuffy.

    It's a good product, not wonderful

    It's way louder than my old, 15 year old A/C was, so I'm having a little bit of a hard time getting used to this (I have migraines, so louder noises are an issue for me). And it's definitely for SMALL rooms, my bedroom is small, but most of the times I leave it on energy saver mode I have to take it off of it, cause the bedroom gets too warm too quickly. Other than that, it works fine.

    Decent Air Conditioner

    I can't say I love or hate this unit. It does ok cooling one of our upstairs bedrooms as long as the door is closed. If it over 95 degrees out it tends to have a lot of condensation. We have to wipe it dry multiple time throughout the day. My concern is that it might end up growing mold like our last unit did. All in all I probably should have purchased a larger BTU unit.

    Short cycle

    Set a temperature and the AC will reach it, but then to hold the temperature the unit cycles for seconds. Evidently it cools the surrounding air and is picked up by the unit's sensor, but it doesn't reflect the true temperature of the room. Recommend with the understanding of a glitch.

      Hi, Zork. We appreciate your feedback. It is true, the sensor is on the front of the a/c and that is where the temperature is read. It may not be a reflection of the exact temperature in other parts of the room. We do have some models with a temperature sensor on the remote to provide a more inclusive reading in other areas of the room, but on this model, the sensor on the unit itself is what determines when the appliance will turn back on. ~ Brandi Frigidaire

    Loud even on lower settings

    1) the product operates as designed. The ac word well in a hot area. 2) easy to follow directions and install was a semi breeze. 3) the ac has nice features like temp control and a remote. 4) it’s loud, even on its quietest lowest setting it very loud. It is intolerable to use when sleeping.

    I have it in our bedroom. It does okay, but not as well as I would like. It will come on for 30 seconds then go off. Then it comes back on in a minute or so for the time needed to cool the room, It does the job, just not the way I thought it would. The room size is less than the requirements,

      Hello, Seashell. It sounds like you may have your A/C on energy saver mode. On energy saver mode, it will cycle on for 20 seconds at 10-minute intervals until the room temperature is above the set temperature, at which time the compressor will turn back on. Try running the A/C in cool mode instead. ~ Brandi Frigidaire

    Blows cold air just not a lot of it .the temp is cold however the fan sucks so it kind of puddles out and evidently a genius came up with the air direction tabs ... Good luck with those so orher than a minimum of cold air and the noise you should be happy if sit right next to it

    It has to be at the lowest temp to cool off room

    You have to put it at the lowest temp available in order to cool off a tiny bedroom. I have a very small window and this a/c was my only option. Hopefully my electric bill won't be too high. I prefer a Friedrich but wasn't available in small width.

    This works well for a small room in my attic as long as I keep the door closed. It is not super powerful but it does the job well enough. They don't make them like they used to because I've have more powerful units at 5,000 BTUs.

    We are surprised to see that bed room whose size is within measurements of this Air Conditioner capacity is not effective. Having installed, we are lazy to remove and return. I recommend higher capacity A/C even for small BRs.

    I would not recommend this to a friend because it is too small and for 5000 btu it does not kick out a lot of air you have to be sitting directly close to it to feel the coldness

      Hey Naynay! You may find that adjusting the louvers may help with the air circulation of your A/C. Keep in mind that the A/C cools up to a 150 sq. foot area. I hope this helps! Kindly, Courtney Frigidaire

    Seems to work ok. Only used it for the last week in September when we had an Indian summer. Seems to cool the attic studio apartment decently.

      Hey, thefakenative! So glad you got some relief from the indian summer heat! With it’s 24-hour timer, your air conditioner makes it easy to program cooling to suit your needs. *Ruth Frigidaire

    Good AC unit for my Van.

    Smitty
    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This AC seems like it should get a lot colder. I am, however, using it in a travel van that is 120° plus. It works well and cools the van. One Love

    I would recommend this to a friend

    • Brand response

      FrigidaireSupport

      One Love, Smitty! If the ambient temperature in the van is very high, the air exiting the unit may not feel cold. Air exiting the air conditioner is usually between 17°F - 20°F lower than the intake air, and may not feel cold to the touch until the ambient temperature is reduced. If your van is not well insulated, this can account for the environment being hotter as the cool air has no place to “stay” and escapes the area quickly. I hope this helps! *Ruth Frigidaire

    Good air conditioner for small bedroom

    Air conditioner is small and so can be handled by someone who is not too strong or big. It is a bit noisy but cools a small to medium size bedroom adequately.

    This unit works alright. It will cool a small room, but makes too much noise. As if it were putting forth too much force to cool the air.

      Hey, friend! I am glad your room air conditioner is getting the job done. I think the automatic fan for continuous air circulation is contributing to keeping you comfortable. *Ruth Frigidaire
