    Window ac freezes my d*%# off.

    |
    Posted .

    So my rv ac unit went out and I'm in the desert so as a quick replacement I installed the frigidaire unit. Even with the sun heating the metal exterior and outside temp being 100 plus this unit can turn my 30 foot rv into a deep freezer. It almost froze my d*%# off, but now I'm good cause I'm wearing a parka in mid July. Roughly its 400 sq ft. So this unit is cool baby.

    At the beginning I was hesitant to buy this unit but after I bought it and installed myself was so easy and it works very good. I have no complaints for this unit it cools my room fast and very pleasantly. I'm so happy with this unit. I strongly recommend it. No doubt about it.

    Works as expected

    This is a replacement for an existed Frigidaire unit. Last one was well over 20 yrs old, so I thought i'd stick with the same brand. This particular unit uses the same encasement as the 6000 unit. I opted for the 8000. Does it look and feel cheaper, of course, every thing now a days does. Well see how long it lasts. It actually does sound a little quieter, and the output is just as good if not better than the original. Best Buy does have a matching price policy and honored my request. Very satisfied purchase.

    It works but I wouldn't buy it again

    It gets the area cool, but I have to keep it on the cool mode and high fan to cool the whole area. It is very loud in those modes. That is not my biggest issue tho. My biggest issue is the amount of sunlight that beams through the air vents every morning. That is just not ideal in a bedroom. Unfortunately, I bought another AC unit and it too does the same thing, tho not as bad. Older AC units did not have this sunlight issue. If I had seen this was an issue in any of the reviews I would not have purchased this unit. No one wants to return a 50 lb unit to the store, so hopefully this will help others avoid that process.

    Best AC unit for its price range

    Absolutely the best in its class! Has Energy saver, remote sensing, cool mode, econo mode, sleep mode, Auto fan, 3 speed, remote control, front panel controls and viewing screen. One of my big requirements is low DB's. Runs nice and acceptably quite! I bought 2 of these 8,000 btu units and 2 of the 6,000 btu units. Not a disappointment!

    Best Marital Aide EVER

    |
    Posted .

    Everybody gets cranky when they're uncomfortable, and my husband and I started getting testy at each other as the weather turned warmer... and warmer... until we hit levels of DON'T TOUCH ME DON'T LOOK AT ME. It was too hot, basically. We sat down and tried to figure out why we were so miserable and had started picking fights with each other over the littlest things, and it really came down to being constantly assaulted by humidity and heat. So we went to Best Buy and bought this. Best idea ever. The remote control shows the current temp and the unit shows the target temp, and they never really seem to get to the same, but that's more of a failing in our purchasing one with less power than our square footage required. Even so, we're keeping it on energy saver setting so it doesn't get too overworked, and it's SOOOO nice. at night, we turn it off energy saver and on to cool and it's wonderful. The remote is pretty intuitive even with all the buttons, and keeping the fan on low limits the humidity getting into our apartment. So WIN.

    Great A/C! Great price!

    Did a lot of homework on this and other A/Cs. I narrowed it down to the LG and the Frigidaire. Would have been nice if stores had an LG to look at. It came down to was what was available in stores plus Frigidaire was a well known brand. Checked out different stores for LG's and they were promising us that they will order it and it would be a week to get it in. That wasn't going to help us with the heat wave coming. We went to Best Buy because they had a large supply of Frigidaires. The store price was higher than what the Best Buy website had on it. The store was able to match the Best Buy website, which was way less than the LG equivalent. Installation was a bit difficult because of the way the windows were constructed on our rental house, but we got it in and going. It is installed on the second story window and it cooled the entire second story of our house in about ninety minutes! We love our Frigidaire A/C! We are glad we made this choice! It is now more comfortable to sleep at night or just relaxing!

    Cools great but a bit noisy.

    Using this to cool down a flat roof single car garage converted into a home office in Hawaii. Flat roof does have a coat of white elastomeric coating so that helps to keep the room cool. 8000 BTU's does a fairly decent job at cooling the area. Takes about an hour to cool the room. This is the fourth air conditioner install in the home throughout the years and installation was simple as expected. All required materials needed and only simple tools used to install in garage window. The remote sensing feature works great. Air conditioner is located on the opposite wall from where the remote is kept. Normally set the temp at 74 degrees and the remote sensor feature will shut off the unit when it reaches that temp in Energy Saver mode. Once the Remote senses the required temp, the entire room is at the desired temp, not just in front of the unit. Great feature. Only issue is the noise. It has a higher pitched "hum" than what I'm used to. More prominent at lower fan speeds. Previous 8000 BTU air conditioners from other brands perform quieter. The noise is louder on the exterior of the unit. Which is good for me, bad for the neighbors. But, for an office/garage, it is sufficient. And for that reason, the 4 stars. Purchased unit on sale. For the money, it's a decent unit. No mechanical problems so far.

    Works Fine-Lasts a Long Time

    This A/C replaced another one that stopped cooling. After replacing it with the new unit, I discovered that the inside of the condensing coils was coated with dirt. Once I clean it, I will have a perfectly good spare. This unit has some very nice features including the remote control which senses the local temperature and sends control signals to the unit, rather than just relying on the air temperature at the window. Also the electrostatic device can help remove more smaller particles like pollen, better than the mesh filter alone. It is only $10 US more than a similar Frigidaire unit at another store that does not have these two features. My oldest Frigidaire unit was made in 2006 and it's still going. Since then I had bought two units of other brands (one starts with an L and the other an S) which are in the Window A/C graveyard. I now have FOUR of these units in use and one spare.

    This is my second Frigidaire 8000 BTU AC. I liked the first one so much that I bought a second one for the bedroom. It's very efficient and cools the room off quickly. I rarely put it on the highest setting. If I do, it can get too cool. I like the fact that the remote control has the current room temperature on its face. My other one doesn't have this feature. This AC does have an energy saver option but I don't like to use that because I don't like hearing the AC going off and on all night long. I just keep it on the cool setting and that works for me. I like not having to get up to change the settings. The remote control comes in handy. I would recommend this product to others. 2 AC's cool off my whole apartment which is 5 rooms!

    Work Great

    I purchased two of these for my bedroom and family room. My bedroom is 14x12 and it does a great job at cooling the entire room. I was pleasantly surprised that this unit isn't too loud with the compressor running. The family room is 20x18 and this unit has no problem cooling it. It even cools off the kitchen which is great. There is an eco mode which turns off the unit when it cools the room to the set temperature. Every few minutes the fan would turn on for a couple seconds and then shut off. I figure this is how it measures the air temperature to know when it needs to turn back on.

    Econo Mode is NOT ....

    |
    Posted .

    Have been using this AC for only a cpl of weeks - and that in the NorthEast of the US, not in the South. Must say, I'm a bit disappointed ..... EconoMode does not cool the area sufficiently; the unit does not manage to get the temp down to the temp chosen (there are always at least 2 degrees difference) - especially not when it's warmer than 75 F outside (and THAT what is was purchased for, after all ...); the unit's fan is already starting to make grinding noises ....... NOT good.

    Keeps house cool and comfortable.

    I waited to write this review until I had used this FRIGIDAIRE 8000 BTU Air Conditioner everyday for over 1 1/2 Months in this very warm summer. I run it on Cool / High Fan and it has kept my house - 4 rooms on 1st floor - cool and comfortable with the help of one Floor Fan to help circulate the air. As I run it on High Fan, it is noisier than if you run the Fan at a lower speed. I rate it 4 Stars only because of the Fan noise, as it really does blow out nice cool air.

    Small in size yet quick cooling

    |
    Posted .

    I needed an ac to fit a small guest room but I wasn't sure if The model smaller to this would be efficient. So, I picked up the 8,000 btu model which, much to my surprise, came with everything I needed in the box. I have this a 4 out of 5 stars because there is some assembly required prior to installing the ac. There are 2 brackes / side panels that require a philips head screwdriver to install but it is relatively easy once you've read the instructions.

    Have been using about a week now. It seriously pushes some cold air through, and the remote is the coolest thing since sliced bread. The temperature is on the remote, so you can put it anywhere you want to be cool, and the thing will keep pumping out air. Great price, too!

    Saved my summer...

    I had previously been using a smaller air conditioner, one that has been passed around my family for about a decade. I decided that I needed something that would do a better job keeping me comfortable. I had intended to use this air conditioner solely in my bedroom. After a few nights of outstanding performance, I realized that this air conditioner could probably be used to keep my living/dining room and kitchen cool. I have been completely satisfied with how this unit performs. Although the BTU rating of this piece is lower than what is recommended for the larger space I am cooling, I have been nothing but happy at the performance provided by this air conditioner. Also, having a second thermostat in the wireless remote helps to ensure that the desired temperature is reached throughout the entire room.
