    Good A/C Unit for 350sqft Room

    |
    Posted .

    This small air conditioner works well for my 350sqft office. I like the convenience of the remote control, but I usually set the cooling to "energy saver", the fan to "auto", and just let the unit run as needed automatically during the day. It is a bit louder than I'd prefer, but it's not so loud as to be a distraction.

    OK AC, a bit noisy for a small room

    Posted .

    The side louvers only goes to 36 inch window max but Frigidare could have engineered some inexpensive bracket inserts. Then it would fit the more common 37-38 inch window sizes. But this seems an issue with all the small units. They assume a small unit goes in a small window. But small rooms can have big windows too! The unit is very plain looking, which is good. (versus bizarre and sticking out) The install kit is the best one I have seen (versus Kenmore and Sharp - the two other brands I have installed recently). But that is not saying much as the kits are pretty imperfect overall. While it is a small unit, it should be a slide in style to make complex installs easier (and ALL installs are complex - especially vinyl windows!)

    Great for the price, cools well

    Posted .

    Very happy with this AC. It's only 5K BTU so make sure your room is small enough for this to be effective. Too many people make the mistake of buying an AC that is too small and then complain the AC doesn't work well. This 5K BTU unit is designed for very small rooms. It cools very well. On a day that is 88 degrees with 80-90% humidity, it functions very well and keeps us comfortable. I usually set it to 72-74 degrees so we're not freezing, and also to conserve electricity. I absolutely LOVE the digital thermostat and the remote control. I have another 10K BTU Panasonic unit with the old rotary style knobs and it's a pain to find a good temp. With this Frigidaire, just set it to what you want enjoy the comfort. The remote control is also extremely convenient for when you're laying in bed and lazy. I don't know about others but I wanted a window AC with the highest efficiency I could get. Electricity is expensive in my state so it was important for me to get a high EER. This particular unit pulls 4.6 amps and uses 465 watts. That is VERY good. After many months of using the AC on hot afternoons/nights off and on, I can say that there was no huge difference in the electricity bill. It went up but not by much as long as we don't use it 24/7. All in all, highly recommended.

    Great for a bedroom

    Posted .

    Bought this for an upstairs bedroom that that faces west and heats up pretty bad in the afternoon. Yes, we have central air, but being on the 2nd floor & at the end of the A/C ducts the room needed help. This was just the ticket to run it in the late afternoon to overcome the heat build up and make it comfortable for sleeping. Has a timer to shut off or turn on and a handy remote. Pretty easy to handle and install in just about any window. I did used a foil duct work sealing tape to seal the outside to prevent rainwater leakage as we have been getting a ton of rain & wind lately.

    Great little AC unit so far

    I bought this to cool my mother's bedroom suite (bedroom, long hallway to bathroom, large bathroom, large walk-in closet). Since the only double-hung window was in the bathroom, we installed it there and set it at 70. It keeps her 1st floor bedroom suite quite comfortable. She keeps the door to her suite closed so it is noticeably cooler in her room than in the adjoining great room and kitchen on days above 75. Our electric bill didn't seem to change at all and it runs all the time (the compressor cycles off when cooling isn't needed but the fan stays on). It might be a little loud if it were in her bedroom. The window was quite narrow (about 20") so even though the unit itself fit, we had to alter the "expandable wings" to install it. It should probably specify the minimum window width in the description, which is considerably wider than the width of the unit itself. It is well worth what we paid for it.

    Best Window A.C. I've bought in years

    Posted .

    This A.C. is a winner. My old one broke so I bought this online and went to pick it up at my local store. (smooth transaction) This a.c. is quiet for a window unit and it blows ice cold air. I wish everyone still made good products like this. The only thing I don't like is that the filter slides out the side. You can't get to the coils if you ever need to clean them. Other than that I recommend this ac unit.

    A couple of years ago I bought 3 units of Frigidaire brand air condition from best buy and since I gave one of the 3 to my daughter , I decided to buy another one from best buy again. The reason why I bought the same brand is because I am very satisfied with the performance of this brand the only complaints I have with it is its noise but above all i am very satisfied with the kind of comfort it gives me whether I am relaxing at home or during the time of sleep at night

    Very happy with this unit.

    Posted .

    I originally bought a portable air conditioner for my daughter's room to supplement our central A/C. Her room is upstairs and in extremely hot weather the central A/C does not cool her room enough. The portable unit was horrible so I ran out and bought this window unit. It is really terrific. I am a single Mom and it was easy for my daughter and I to install this on our own. Her windows are small but the unit is pretty compact and fit fine. It cooled the room quickly. The remote is handy because she has a loft bed so she can easily adjust the temperature with the remote. The unit I actually received is different than the picture. It has a digital temperature readout. I am very happy with this product!

    I was looking for an reliable, yet inexpensive AC unit with simple control for my son's bedroom. This did the trick! I have to admit that I intended to buy a different product at Walmart, but turns out they didn't have it in stock. I ultimately went to Best Buy and found one. Paid a slight bit more, but I'm still satisfied.

    Rare -- A Real Value!

    Posted .

    For its size this AC is a workhorse ... perfect for a decent-sized bedroom, single room (plus), or office. Very good installation instructions, sensible directions and parts, extensions actually fit an odd-sized window in my historic, well weathered home. Strong cooling capacity and efficient econ mode. Design is straightforward, which I like, and operations don't require an advanced engineering degree as some units seem to require! Highly recommend this AC ... for the sale price we paid, it's a superb value!

    Hi efficiency air conditioner

    |
    Posted .

    I chose this for its 10.7 energy rating. I have a 180 year old farmhouse with electric branch circuits that run all over the house. It is hard not to overload them. This unit was drawing just 4 amps when I measured as it first came on and was in cooling mode. I have not had to worry about breakers tripping. At under 40 pounds it was easy to lift into place in the window and still does a nice job cooling a bedroom with 5000 BTUs. Energy saver mode will keep electric bills down also. I am going to buy another to replace my older unit in my bedroom to save power and lower noise level.

    Awesome for small room

    Posted .

    Bought this unit for a small bedroom that only had one vent from the central cooling air conditioner, evening sun heated it up and our son's electronics also contributed to the rooms heat. This is an awesome unit with features found on more expensive and larger cooling units. This has a remote control, and the unit has a temperature control which will keep the room at whatever set point you program. For any of you that may have a very small window that you want to use, this unit was easy to modify. This unit is designed to fit a window opening of a minimum of 23", however I needed it to fit 21". I took the slider curtains from each side of the unit and cut the metal frames off 1 1/2" on each side with a hack saw. Now the unit fits perfectly with the slider curtains attached. Our son says if feels like Alaska in his room. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a small room air conditioner.

    Great small air conditioner

    |
    Posted .

    This is the first air conditioner I've ever bought, and I'm very happy with it. It is small and light making it easy to install, and cools a bigger area than I thought it would. It's also fairly quiet. I was limited on my choices because I have small windows, only 22 inches wide. This one fit perfectly. If you're looking to cool a bedroom or similar small room, this ac does a great job.

    This room air conditioner was easy to install and is easy to use. The air is very cold and the automatic sensor allows it to maintain the temperature I choose. And it comes with a remote you can use from your bed if you want to change the setting without getting up.

    Really like it

    Posted .

    It is a little over capacity for my 8X8 hobby room. Cools it down to any temp I want and does it fast. No windows so had to mount it through a wall. Not a big problem just needed to be sure and get it sloped right for drainage. Didn't think the remote was needed but it is very handy as the way I have it installed is a little high up and not real easy to reach. I can sit at a chair and set the AC any way I want. Only thing that could be better is one more speed. It has two speeds and I always use the lowest. Would be better if there was one more slower speed.

    I bought two of these units, one for my bedroom and one for my office, and am happy overall with the performance for the price. It would be nice to be able to program on/off times in addition to the simple countdown timer included as the only programmable feature.

    Good Investment

    Posted .

    I needed to get a unit for my room and I am glad I went with this unit. The selling point for me was that this was a energy star unit. Yeah you can get a cheaper unit for about $100 but its is going to use more electricity. At $129 its a steal. This was the best deal I was able to find with most retailers it was priced around $160. I would recommend this unit for a small room. The remote is also nice to have. I also invested in the three year warranty through Frigidaire for $30. It will even cover a replacement unit. They also will renew your warranty throughout the life of the product use. I am very pleased with the unit and have had zero problems. Installation was a breeze. The unit it not loud and I can sleep just fine with it on full blast. I however would not recommend this unit for a large room. Anything under 160 square feet is the ideal setting.

    Great value in a small window air conditioner.

    Posted .

    I came upon the Frigidaire FRA054XT7 on Best Buy's site while I was considering replacing an old GE Carry Cool air conditioner that had developed thermostat and drainage issues. The night I was looking at it, it listed for $120 with free shipping, which was a good deal that I planned on getting in the morning. When morning came, the unit price had changed to $80 with free shipping, which was such a great deal that I bought two! Installation was easy in a modern window. Even though the included hardware was sufficient, I always use plastic sheeting and tape to make a vapor barrier on either side of the unit, since the accordion panels are mainly useful for privacy. When facing the unit, the air output tends to blow toward my left, though the ability to direct its air flow is better than average. On the Low Cool setting, it provides a comfortable sleeping temperature in a small bedroom. The Energy Saver mode, which only turns on the fan when the cooling cycle is active, or to sample the air temperature, allows about a 5 to 6 degree spread in the room temperature between cooling cycles. The fan noise level is tolerable for such a small unit. I have a 5,200 BTU unit that is actually quieter because its bigger fan doesn't have to run at such a high speed. Lastly, a thought regarding the energy efficiency of this unit. The FRA054XT7 is an older model that does not meet the newest "Energy Star" standard set arbitrarily by the U.S. Government. The FFRE0533Q1 is the newer Frigidaire model that is "Energy Star" compliant. The current "Energyguide" that comes with new air conditioners shows the expected yearly operating cost in dollars. At $42 a year, the FRA- is $2 more per year to run than the FFRE- model. At such an insignificant difference in operating cost, and factoring the current purchase price of both units, it would take decades for the FRA- to cost a consumer as much over its lifespan as the FFRE- model. The lifespan of any window air conditioner is such that a consumer will never save money by purchasing the FFRE- while the FRA054XT7 is still available at current prices.

    Cannot complain about this unit because the price is so good. It was easy to install and runs quietly.
