Great fit for small windows and very powerful
from Hudson Valley, NY
Comments about Frigidaire 6,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner:
So far I have purchased (3) of these units for my home. The low profile unit makes the fit in my windows perfect. Feels like the power of a 10,000 BTU unit. Beats central air conditioning!

I bought this unit because of it's low profile, so it would fit in a small window. However the designer's of this item really messed up. First, even with the airflow directed fully forward, the airflow goes almost straight up, not out into the room. Second, the remote control has no readout on it, so in order to see what temperature it's set at, you have to look at the display on the unit. Unfortunately, the display is mounted horizontally, so you have to be standing right over it to see it. So the remote is virtually worthless. Finally, because the airflow goes straight up, it bounces off the ceiling and back down to the unit, so it doesn't maintain the set temperature throughout the room. It just keeps cycling the compressor off and on. You have to set temp much lower than actually desired. (63 to maintain 68 in the room). If I could find another low profile unit, I'd get rid of this.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Best Air Conditioner
By Joanie P
from West Warwick, RI, United States
I bought this air conditioner about one month ago and it's the best purchase I've ever made. As hot as it's been where I live, I turn this on and within just a short time, my downstairs rooms are cooled off. Works great. I may purchase another one for upstairs.
Bought one to try in a smaller room and it works great, so good I bought another for the room on the other end of the house that gets the hot afternoon sun and still works great. Very quiet and the lower profile looks much better than the big gawdy units.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not crazy about it.
By Difficult installation
from Rockland County, NY, United States
I bought this based on it's energy efficiency, it's low profile, and because it was advertised as being quiet. Well, I tried it the first night in a small bedroom and could not use it on the energy savings economy mode. It would not keep the room cool on this mode. It did keep the room cool in the cool mode but that defeats the "energy efficient rating". It was not quiet and it was difficult to install. The instructions are not good. Because it is low profile it has a channel for the upper sash to sit in. The instructions specify to install with a slight grade outward to drain unit. This became a nightmare because once you close the sash into the channel it levels itself. Very frustrating.

Great for cooling a small room
By Cocoa cookie p
from Phoenix, AZ, United States
I got this as a gift. As a means to reduce bills and only cool one room on the house this is great. The only downer is that the one vent only blows straight up and finding an adapter to redirect the air was difficult for me. Also this unit should come with at least a replacement or reusable filter as that part is also hard to find and makes the unit less efficient. It's also kind of loud.

Keeping the room nice and cold
It works great. Room stays cold. Fairly quiet. Looks sharp too.
Only 4 stars since I havent't Had It Very Long
from Central Florida
Just put it in a month ago, works fine as far as I can tell this early, looks good, seems well made, it's in a storeroom so I don't hear it very much but it's pretty quiet when I'm in there, it's set at 80 to keep the area from getting overly hot,, happy with it so far.
from New York, NY, United States
Bought this in Aug and it is pretty quiet, cools nicely, and I love the low profile so there is a lot more window for the light to come in....esp in the winter since I leave the unit in year round.
Great air conditioner.
