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

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. 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.

It works very well and helps me get a good night's sleep.

cmartin2 10/4/2022

I have central A/C in my house but have this wall unit in my bedroom to save electricity. I live alone so I turn the central A/C off when I go to bed and then turn on the Frigidaire unit. It works very well and appears to be of a much better quality than most other brands. I hope it lasts for a long time.

Satisfied Customer

Robert La 9/29/2022

The unit was easy to install in my existing in-the-wall sleeve. It has been operating for 3 weeks now. It cools my 300sqft backyard office very well. It's quiet too.

So much quieter than our old air conditioner!

alyssa k 9/21/2022

Our air conditioner died in the middle of a heat wave, but the bonus was that this air conditioner is much quieter than our old one. And it works really well.

Quiet and Very Efficient

Yukonjoe29 9/12/2022

The air conditioner cools down the room very quickly and is quiet compared with similar units. The ionizer is a big plus.

Cool and Quiet

Orly C 8/6/2022

The a/c cools very quickly and is fairly quiet. I prefer to use it with the remote sensing feature where the unit will cool until the temp on the remote matches what you set on the unit. I find it much more accurate and works better with eco function. The ionizer is a nice touch, but not sure if I can tell the difference. I am very pleased with this unit and Frigidaire™€™s overall reputation and customer care.

Doesn™€™t cool 100% of the time. Operates more like a fan

DoNotRecommed 8/3/2022

The condenser turns on at its on discretion and maybe blows chilled air a fraction of the time. Really disappointed™€¦ they™€™re sending me new units. Both were brand new units™€¦

A tad loud, but otherwise perfect!

LiaNYC 7/27/2022

Works perfectly, but... it is a wee bit loud as it goes on and off in auto mode. Doesn't bother me (or my kid) while I sleep, but might bother some -- can leave it on continuously to solve the problem, and this would not keep me from getting this machine . Between auto mode and eco, it is clear this is an energy saving machine, and the added bonus of remote sensing makes sure it is keyed to the appropriate part of the room.

Cools and Is Quiet

Orly65 7/24/2022

The unit was easy to install in existing sleeve, I had to use some weatherstripping as it was smaller than the sleeve. I then added styrofoam along the gaps and caulked the rest; neat and clean with a good seal. The air conditioner replaced a 2 year old lemon from Whirlpool, and it did a great job of cooling the room quickly. The remote sensing is very good, it utilizes the temperature on the remote to adjust the room temperature. I like it better than having the sensor near the conditioner coil to determine how long to stay on. I like the trim it comes with to hide the edges of the sleeve, very nice touch. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Air conditioner works great. The instruction manual was extremely confusing which made installation difficult. The materials were not clearly labeled and the directions were not clear/concise.

Doesn™€™t cool

ReeMo 7/5/2022

Purchased from PC Richard™€™s. I had them measure the room for correct BTU and then had them do the install, just to be sure. I only put it on at night, but it NEVER cools down the room. Doesn™€™t matter what combination of settings I use. And this is unreturnable at the store so now I™€™m left with a metal box. Maybe I™€™ll use it in the Winter to warm up the room. For light sleepers, the unit might be a problem as it™€™s loud.

Very cool air conditioner

Flyindelorean 7/4/2022

So cool! Whatever coolness you want, just like you™€™d expect. The remote is cool too, but not temperature-wise like I mean about the air conditioner being cool. Very happy with this purchase and price. I am much cooler now!

A Really Smart Air Conditioner

AlBu 7/2/2022

The product cools a room in a matter of a few minutes. Also in these times of high energy the air conditioner shuts it's self off when the room reaches the temperature you set. All in all an excellent product.

Thus far Quiet and Efficient with More Features Yet to Explore

Nickaki 6/26/2022

We™€™ve only used the AC twice since it was delivered. However, on both occasions, we found it quiet and efficient. It has met our expectations. There remain a couple of the AC™€™s features that we have yet to use, namely the ionizer that acts as an air filter as well as the timer. These are potentially useful features that will make the AC even more useful.

Cools Well, Doesn't Dehumidify enough

Hillwoman 5/22/2022

I live in a English basement condo, so I'm half underground. My humidity level in the bedroom can get to 70% if left unchecked. I was really hoping that the dry mode would help with that. My dehumidifier can get it down to 50% in an hour. This AC will take it down 1% in an hour running in dry mode (not on Econ). That's just not enough. I have an early 2000 Frigidaire that will remove the humidity in the living room so I know that it can be done. My old 2000 Kenmore did it in the bedroom too. But the new ACs just don't remove humidity like they used to (this is my second Frigidaire since replacing my Kenmore). Running a dehumidifier while running the AC unit seems counterproductive. I was really hoping to run one loud machine at a time.
