Comments about Frigidaire 12,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner:

I bought a few different brands which did not perform to my expectation until i found this AC. It works great and keeps the room cool throughout the summer. Great product.

AC

Comments about Frigidaire 12,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner:

I got this during the heat wave this summer because it was much too hot (93 degrees inside) from the heat radiating from the attic of the condo. I had to send the first one back because the temperature sensor was faulty - it shut off 5-6 degrees higher than the actual temp (ie it shut off when it thought it was 75, but it was really 80). The second one had the same problem. Frigidaire doesn't fix this model price point, so they wanted it to be exchanged yet again. To their credit, when I explained that I couldn't carry it up and down stairs, pay the super for installation etc. They offered to buy it back. The unit works pretty well, but the sliders for the window are flimsy, and despite what it says, it's noisy. I probably wouldn't buy it again. But, due to the customer service and buy back offer, I would probably give them another chance with a different model.

okay unit

By gadgetsandgizmosguy

Comments about Frigidaire 12,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner:

It does cool. Has a condensate connection above ground level. Handy because most units like this don't. Allows easier hookup of a hose to drain outside or into a bucket where you collect it to empty manually or with an automatic condensate pump to move it elsewhere. Keep an eye on the second drain all the way at the bottom. The flimsy rubber cover for it was knocked off when moving the unit to a different location. Resulted in very wet carpet. On a good note, once fixed, it sucked all the moisture out of the room and the carpet in 8 hours. Beware, the unit does shut itself OFF when left alone. I keep coming back to find it has yet once again shut itself off. Not good when I'm trying to keep the temperature down when I'm not there to monitor the room. It uses room air to cool the condensation coils so it sucks the nice cool air of the room out. Would not work for sealed rooms where you don't want to suck in 100+ deg air into the room.

    The only problem I had with the AC: there was a dent on the upper left hand side of frame of the unit. The packing box showed no damage. My guess is, the unit received the dent at Frigidaire, and not PC Richard.The unit works great.

    Comments about Frigidaire 12,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner:

    This unit is labor intensive, messy, and damaging to furniture and flooring! It puts out a lot of water which must be collected and discarded...how? Use a garden hose out the window, but it doesn't gravity feed water uphill, so you would have to get the unit up higher than the windowsill. Drain it into a bucket, and babysit the unit to empty the bucket every couple of hours...not to mention that it drips at the hose connection like a garden hose does!

    Comments about Frigidaire 12,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner:

    I brought this product on 7/6/2013 for my livingroom which is a size of medium bedroom. left on all day the room remains not cool but warm. I have a 8000 btu in bedroom and it cool off better than this product. the only thing good about it was installation. the bad thing is it's making noise and not cooling the room do not buy at all. and P.C Richard does not give back money just store credit but they do want you to spend extra money for a knew one that's not fair. stay away from this name brand.
