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.

Mansfield322 6/2/2021

I bought this air conditioner because of the reviews. Everyone stated that it was great and quiet. Well, they were wrong. I have the unit in my living room area and it's so loud that my husband and I can't even carry on a conversation when the unit is running. Other than that, it cools the area down quickly and keeps it cool. Just be prepared for a loud running air conditioner!

I am a single woman and was able to install this unit with a little ingenuity and elbow grease. This is a superior model to my former units and it looks like Frigidaire finally got rid of certain hardware components that just end up rusting out and shortening the life span. I am impressed.

Bsjohnson40 9/15/2020

Received this unit under warranty from an older 12,000 btu Frigidaire unit, works well and believe it was designed to keep the control board from getting damp that was the cause of my old units failure. You cannot ask to be treated better with their no cost to me warranty replacement. Frigidaire stands behind their appliances better than most anyone. My grandfather owned a furniture store for 40 years and he carried frigidaire and I have bought frigidaire whenever I need the best.

Didn't last a year

mbirwin 9/14/2020

I bought this to replace a GE unit rated at 10k BTU that ran like a champ for 5-6 years with no issue until it got old and needed a recharge. I'm in a second floor unit with not much circulation other than the a/c. What I found is much like other reviews here suggest, it failed to adequately cool a 500 sq ft studio apartment even a few hours after installation. (2-3 hours should cool it down). This unit didn't fit my need and is definitely not capable of battling a SoCal heat wave, even with the help of the ocean 250 yards away...which means an apartment in the same neighborhood with more windows and natural air circulation cools off better than my unit does with this a/c on the coolest setting on the lowest fan speed. In it's current state, the reason I'm writing the review, is it decided about an hour to throw in the towel and will no longer turn on. The bottom line of my review to the people reading, this a/c will not hold up if it needs to actually get used day-in, day-out.It's hard to not label it as junk as I'm not even sure I got a full calendar year out of it.

over 3 weeks of 100 plus Texas heat overwhelmed my previous window unit. This one has handled it well keeping me and my dogs very cool in a house with bad insulation in the roof. 3 speeds plus Auto mode to regulate needed speed. It's not loud, giving me the steady hum I like to sleep.

COOL AT LAST

Stormz 9/5/2020

Our old air conditioner was on its last leg and we were dying in this Southern California heat. Immediately after plugging it in the room began to cool off. In 10minutes the whole apartment was 10 degrees cooler. We had it professionally installed, the one thing I noticed which I also read was when you first turn it in, it automatically goes to ECO. But once you set it where you want it its PERFECT

Very dissappointed

jax923 8/31/2020

I bought this air conditioner with great hopes from the reviews. I was certain 12,000 BTU's would cool my room down and after I had pay somone to install it, because it's installed in a wall. The air conditioner didn't cool my 400 sq foot room down at all. The air is cool but just not cooling the room. I have another brand that is only 10,000 btu that cools my entire upstairs and this doesn't even cool one room. So I had to pay to have it uninstalled and returned. I didn't want to risk having the same issue so, I bought another brand.

Just what we wanted

Linwood 8/28/2020

We live in a small New York apartment. However, our previous AC could not cool all of the rooms. We chose the 12,000 BTU Frigidaire which is much more powerful and effective than our last AC. You can really crank up the power and crank down the temperature, remotely.Everyone loves the remote because sometimes it gets too cold and we have to turn it off.But we don't have to get off the couch while we are enjoying a movie or book or whatever.The louvers adjust in several directions which helps a lot with air flow. This is nice to adjust to the number of people in the room and where they are. So just set the temperature and it will do the rest. We are very happy with this purchase.

I got this to replace a Frigidaire 8000 btu AC unit that lasted 12 years. Upgraded to this 12000 btu that is more powerful and quiet. I can feel the fan on high from 15 feet away. I can watch a movie or listen to music with this AC on. The control features give you lots of options. This one is cooling 2 rooms and a kitchen. I can cook and bake without melting. I really like the black grill, it looks sharp and clean in between cleanings.

Jamier21 8/4/2020

I bought this unit to upgrade from a tiny 5,000 but unit that was installed in the wall of my kitchen/ dining area and was not able to cool down the space which is also open to the living room. I knew it was time to upgrade and so happy I made the choice on this unit. I was able to install it in a window instead of the wall which allowed me to close up the wall and it's cooling down those rooms with ease! It is not as loud as I had thought it might be. I love the ECO setting as it works as intended. I haven't used the timer or sleep functions as of yet but I do love that those options are there. If you are on the fence about this unit, go for it you won't be disappointed!

At your risk, can be adapted to a sliding window application

GeneL 7/30/2020

I was shopping for a 12K BTU AC for a sliding window application and could not find one. Then I read the specs on this one and because it "compact" and less wide than AC units made for double-hung window applications, I determined it would fit in my slider opening. I understood I would have to make some alterations to the install, specifically, I would need to add an outside bracket to support the rear of the unit. The completed installation is secure. The unit peforms at a level above my expectations. Miscellaneous notes: I'm using it to cool 2600 cubic feet of space, it does so with ease. The fan on "low" setting is indeed audible, but it is not distracting, especially from 10 feet away. For humid regions, it will de-humidify and cool simultaneously. When installing, be sure to tip the unit back 1/2" (per the installation instructions) so any condensation will drain out the key hole shaped opening at the left-rear-bottom of the unit. If one needs to re-route the dripping water, Frigidaire does sell an adapter which fits into the opening. So far, whatever water the unit has generated has, as designed, been evaporated and not expelled out of the hole. The relative humidity where I live is moderate which probably explains the lack of drainage water. Much of the unit's weight is centered on the left side rear. If just one person is lifting the unit, it would be best to lift the unit from the rear, not the front. Preferable for two people to lift and place. Installing in a slider: at the base of the unit are two sturdy tabs, one on each side (see photo). These tabs fit into the bottom track of the slider securing the unit from slipping outside. With bottom secure, now the sides: there are 1/4" flanges on each side of the unit intended for the expansion-spacer wings. The flange on the right hand side fits into the vertical track of the slider providing some degree of retainment. The flange on the left hand side secures somewhat into the track of slider side (see photo). With the outside bracket supporting the main weight of the rear of unit (bracket set off-center to be more under the main weight, per bracket install instructions), and the bottom tabs preventing the unit from slipping to the outside and with flanges providing some securing, the unit is quite secure and there is zero vibration. Note at the bottom of the outside bracket (see photo), I was concerned the foot of the bracket would slip. I put two screws into the house siding below the bracket to make sure it could not move downward. With the slider application, one does have to create a filler plate above the unit. I used two sheets of carboard back-to-back. I may eventually buy plexiglass but the cardboard works quite well. The unit comes with 40" strip of 1" X 1" foam insulation which seals the unit well, although because of the slider application, I had to purchase another roll separately.

Frigidaire lives up to its name!

Neal K 7/20/2020

I live in the central valley in California and our summers are brutal to say the least. I have gone through 3 different brands of air conditioners (LG, Kool King, and Emerson) and they all fell short of meeting my cooling needs. I happened across this Frigidaire AC and it had several (mostly positive) reviews. So I purchased it and have never been happier! I have a 740 sq ft home so it's not very big but this air conditioner puts out some cold cold air and it keeps my house the way I want it without running up a gigantic bill. It's a wonderful investment if you need ice cold air and fast.
