Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Disappointing

Submitted by dewbie - 7/14/2020

Purchased a month ago, its so loud you cannot hear your self think, let alone anyone talking to you. You will get cool, as long as you are standing or sitting exactlyl in front of the unit. i purchased the same BTU as last unit expecting it to cool like that one. Not the case, it will cool a 10x10 room as long as you close the door. otherwise good luck. not worth the money.

Keeping our cool

Submitted by hotinTexas - 7/13/2020

We're experiencing triple digit temps in Texas right now, but we're staying cool with this window unit. Easy to install and it's helping keep our electricity bills down as we only cool the rooms we're in.

Excellent Purchase

Submitted by Billy26 - 7/10/2020

Great at keeping the house cool and we love the economy feature that lets the air conditioner come on at intervals and senses the room temperature and then, if necessary, the compressor kicks in and cools the room to your preset temperature.

Arizona tested

Submitted by BroGeorge - 6/13/2020

I recently purchased this unit for my garage to replace one I've had for 12 years. My old unit barely kept up with the Arizona summer heat, so I had to leave my house to garage door open with a fan blowing into the garage when I wanted to work out there. The Frigidaire (same size as my old one) keeps up entirely on it's own...plus it's pretty quiet for a window unit. I never write reviews, but I am so pleased, I had to let everyone know. Great product!

Perfect size and fit for the Texas hot summer

Submitted by Goworkout - 6/12/2020

I bought this to help on cutting down on the use of my house ac unit in the Texas summer! Worked perfect for our needs and cooled off the game room the entire summer and was less expensive to run than my big house unit. Highly recommend the unit

Place of drainage?

Submitted by Hithuon - 5/26/2020

I bought this unit a few years ago and had no problems, but recently it has been leaving a stream of water down my siding. I can find no information on a designated drainage area for condensation online or in these FAQs, I just want to attach a hose to direct water away from the house. Help?

Makes a difference!

Submitted by Tim2020 - 5/24/2020

I bought this unit about a month ago, and it is exactly what I needed! It provides plenty of power and I could immediately feel the difference! It's not that loud for being so powerful, and with the coming summer, it is exactly what we needed! I highly recommend this product!

Efficient cooling

Submitted by Heather42 - 10/10/2019

We bought this unit to replace an older unit that was leaking and no longer cooling. We shopped around looking for a quiet and efficient replacement and this unit fits the bill. It works well and is quiet enough that we can still watch TV at a comfortable volume.

Nightmare

Submitted by Hot and frustrated - 9/4/2019

Worked fine for a week than impossible to control: wouldn't respond to either manual or remote control. Customer service told us that at least three different calls about this issues need to be made before they could take any action. Let it sit for a day or two and then start it again, day or two of 95 + degrees, started again and worked for a full 24 hours before stopping. Quite disappointed and frustrated.

Great AC for a 12000 BTU

Submitted by Joemcm - 8/27/2019

I bought 2 of them because I do not have central AC and I have a 2nd and 3rd Floor that can get up to 90+ of a hot day. With these 2 AC I can watch the thermostat on the AC remote drop the temperature fairly quickly and cool the floors off. What a life saver on hot days.

This is my 3rd window ac like this and I love it. It™€™s cooling a 550 sq ft area with no problem. The remote sensor is great - it helps be sure the room stays the perfect temperature. I would not hesitate to recommend this window air conditioner.

Submitted by castle hoke - 8/9/2019

i bought this about a year ago and it was running great until it stooped for no reason. contacted customer service and they did send me a replacement. when it arrived the deliver service left it on my steps and it rained. so the entire unit got wet. wished they would have ring the doorbell or send a email or text to notify me that they had delivered it. i do not know if the unit works since i got it. i am trying to let it dry out for a week before i plug it in. all together i love the unit so i give it a five stars.

Great air conditioner, 3rd purchase.

Submitted by Iantheplumber - 8/9/2019

This is my 3rd purchase of this air conditioner in the past 10 years. The first and second are still going strong after nearly 10 years at my children™€™s mothers home. This third one is in my new home and does great! Buying online can be risky tho, as the one I bought a few months ago came damaged beyond use, and the warranted replacement came in better condition, but was also smashed (broken plastic) on the front corner. I didn™€™t complain, as it was much better than the last, but still pretty disappointed as a brand new appliance. Overall, it works great tho! I like my Frigidaire air conditioners.

GOOD QUALITY

Submitted by sharonrj - 7/25/2019

I purchased this window air conditioner from Amazon it arrived bent on both the outside top and right side. I didn't see the damage before it was installed seems to be working fine very cold air. I just hope that nothing inside the unit is damaged. I have decided to keep it because the heat index is over 100 degrees here but I will also be letting Amazon know of this issue.

Junk

Submitted by UnsatisfiedArmygurl7 - 7/14/2019

It™€™s junk. Had to pay technician 150.00 to install because it™€™s sooo heavy. When we turned it on it died. Literally died. Got paperwork together for the Frigidaire Co. not Amazon that I bought it from. So I still don™€™t have working AC unit in Florida. I™€™m sick US Army veteran. I will have to pay more money to install piece of junk again.

WILL NOT WORK. DISPLAY PANEL STUCK

Submitted by NotHappyInPA - 7/9/2019

I purchased this unit 2 years ago. It worked great for a while. Now it will switch on it™€™s own between modes, fan speed, temperature, etc. I can not switch anything on the control panel or the remote. It is stuck right now on fan only at a temp of 80 degrees. This should not be happening after only 2 years! I hope Frigidaire stands by their product and makes this right!

Not working

Submitted by Angry in VA - 6/20/2019

Bought this model 2 years ago. Installed it and within 2 days had to return it. the control panel stopped responding. They replaced it with a new one and it has worked well for 2 years. Now the control panel stopped responding on this one. It changes on its own. The mode changes. It goes from Fan to Econo to Cool. The thermostat set point changes. The fan speed changes. I work at night and have to try to sleep in the heat of the day. I'm pretty mad that now I'm going to have to spend nearly $500 dollars to replace it.

Nice A/C Unit

Submitted by Bikerg - 6/18/2019

I received this AC during the winter months through the local electric company energy audit. They replaced my old AC with this new Energy Saver model. I like the way its been working. The only negative is the Economy mode that cycles it on and off. It allows the temperature to rise more than what I would expect it to do before during back on and recool the area. Bottom line: haven't used it much since receiving it and time will tell how long it will last MTBF.
