Comments about Frigidaire 8,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner:

Works quickly and cools entire room.
I do not like 2 things.
1. The controls for the air flow are made cheaply and I don't like how they direct the air flow.
2. Even on the lowest speed, the unit is too noisy and it was difficult for us to fall asleep the first night of use.

    The LG A/C Window unit I bought before this one was an LG - and with NORMAL use in the North Eastern part of the US it lasted LESS THAN ONE YEAR! Hopefully this one will last a lot longer. So far, I like it.

          This unit is exactly as advertised. I have had it on all day (NYC heat wave), & it has consistently provided cool air & it is NOT too loud.

          • Small Room

          Comments about Frigidaire 8,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner:

          I use this for a small bedroom, I had a frigidaire 8000btu AC from 5+ years ago that worked beautifully until a freon line was damaged while moving it out of storage.

          I purchased this model as I figured would be as good as the older model. It is worse, the whole unit is lighter and it doesn't draw the same power. I assume this means the compressor is smaller/weaker and this is why it fails to do what the slightly larger and heavier model did.

          I would not recommend this for a moderate or large room. Per the many calculators for how many BTU's for the room size 8000 is more than enough. Yet this one doesn't come close to doing the job.

          I wish I hadn't tried to get a product from an 'american' company. Not only was my unit not made in America it isn't even as good as the older model.

          Very easy to install.
          Not so loud for a bedroom (all AC are loud)
          But I am not completely satisfied by the temperature indicated. But it cools my studio.
