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.

Saved my marriage!

iangoodchris 8/24/2020

My wife was going insane with our barely working 6000 BTU AC unit. The thing would project a barely noticeable light breeze and every so often cough up an ice ball across the room for no reason (no I™€™m not joking). This Frigidaire cools down the room in less than 5 minutes flat after turning it on. And my wife now wants to actually be in our living room with me.

Freezer Quality

Jasharris14 8/23/2020

I purchased this unit about 2 weeks ago and let me tell you this has done wonders. My entire downstairs (I have a split level) is like a comfortable icebox. Installation was easy I did it by myself (it is slightly heavy) and it blows cool air like a champ it doesn't use a whole lot of electricity. Much cheaper having this unit than running my own central ac.

Quickly cools down the House

Tampa8 8/9/2020

I bought this air conditioner last year and it has been running as it should since. In Florida that's a good part of the year and everyday for many months. I don't think it's louder or much so than my two smaller ones. Those two small Frigidaire units have run now for years so hopefully so will this one. The ability to come back on after losing power is plus. Because of where this is mounted, high on the wall the remote is also a plus.

Hot outside-cool inside!!

KGB56 7/30/2020

Southeast Missouri summers are known for heat and humidity, and this summer has been no exception. We replaced our twenty-year old unit with this one and didn't realize what a difference it would make. We like the multiple settings available on this unit, too. No matter how hot it is outside, we're staying cool inside!

Nice Unit

Mama Vee 7/17/2020

I had purchased this unit to replace another unit and I'm happy I had I made the right choice. The unit is nicely made, looks goods in the window with the attached window panel / insulators slid onto each side it is a nice finish, allowing the material to insulate the panels keeping the cool air in and the heat out. In addition, the mechanics of this unit is great so far, runs quiet and no water leaks outside as it is made to use the condenser to self evaporate the water itself vs. having to drain it outside using a drain kit. This is going to be a long hot summer, we are happy to have our Frigidaire keeping us cool.

Great Features

KelleyJ 6/23/2020

We bought this a month ago and it is doing what it should. The economy energy saver is great.The remote is handy but sometimes it takes a few tries to work. I wish the air vents would adjust airflow more as there is no vertical adjusting and only horizontally. I was used to both as well as a split vent for even better air flow adjustment. We just leave it on eco and haven't tried the other features such as the timer. The controls seem much simpler and easier than our last A/C. Looking forward to seeing it perform several years.

JHeller 6/14/2020

This unit is cooling about 550sq ft for me and it does great if I leave it on cool mode. In eco mode it turns off too much to maintain a constant temperature. I bought this model for it's remote temperature sensing feature which doesn't work. The remote sensing light turns off within a few hours of being activated.

Misitlovinglife 5/25/2020

Have only used for about a week. So far it is by far the best a/c yet. Have bought other brands and straight out of the box we normally say, "better than nothing". This one cools quickly. My favorite feature is you sit the remote at far side of room you are cooling. The a/c cools room till that part of room is the temperature unit is set for.

Don1969 5/17/2020

I bought this for a 350sqft sunroom and it seems to cool well although we haven't hit the hot of the summer yet. My only real complaint is it seems to switch out of remote sensing mode and it is a couple degrees off when in that mode. I have new batteries in it so not really sure what is going on. Will see how it lasts and cools in hot summer. Overall I am pleased.

I bought this model last year , at Lowes I take very good care of my appliances unfortunately with the styrofoam on the inside due to no negligence on my part black mold is growing inside my unit and I was told it's because of the Styrofoam it's impossible to clean I'm afraid to turn it on then the mold would become airborne don't know what to do This only shows moles in front I will post better pictures that I can take in daytime tomorrow, this is my only form of Air conditioner and having health issues I'm just very disappointed I live on the second floor I'm disabled from Cancer so I don't have the money to replace and it's not like you can take it apart and clean it out the pictures don't show all the excess mold in the back of the unit that is impossible to get to

Chris 228 4/19/2020

The AC arrived with a dent on the back of the unit, and the fan does not turn off and on with the thermostat. I went to the Frigidaire website for a local AC repair company, because it is under warranty. I'll call them Monday, because they are not open on the weekends.
