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.

FA65 10/20/2020

Our old A/C was still functioning, but had some age on it. With things as they are, decided it best to buy one before it was truly needed and am sure glad we did! It is a very nice A/C, runs quiet and is quite efficient. Can already tell a difference in our electric bills. Like the remote features as well.

ODED 9/11/2020

I purchased this unit to cool my home. I had installed a larger unit in a building were I was the Camp Ranger. Both of the units did what they said they would do. Energy costs increased minimally with the 220/240 unit.

It had a problem when we first got it. Had to hire an electrician to figure it out. The cord was faulty. Reset switch didn't work. Now it works great. Cools better than the others that we have bought.

Cools 1000 square feet

Greenwave04 8/24/2020

Cools 1000 square feet easily. With some fans to help keep air moving we are able to cool our entire first floor. Yes it™€™s heavy and installation can be tricky, but works well, isn™€™t very loud, and e controls are laid out in a logical manner.

18,000 BTU WINDOW-MOUNTED ROOM AIR CONDITIONER

EezeePeezee 8/23/2020

I bought this 3 weeks ago from Amazon. Luckily there was no delivery damage. I had first Frigidaire 18,000 BTU A.C. for 16 yrs. Sadly because of extreme 90 degree season, the old unit died 3 wks. ago. I gave it a beautiful funeral. The new unit is set in the wall. It started right up and compressor kicked in after about five minutes. It is very quiet and even at low cool at 69 degrees it cools all five rooms of my little rancher. I hope it lasts for at least 16 yrs, too.

Chilly Willy. In a great way!!!

Chill bumps 8/21/2020

Love it! I installed it in my south facing kitchen window because I couldn™€™t take the heat anymore. We live in a century old, mainly uninsulated house. With this window unit, I can cook dinner on the stove in summer and not melt from the heat. Love the eco setting, only runs when it needs to so I don™€™t have to keep adjusting settings at night when it gets cooler outside. Best unit I™€™ve had so far.

Cools the whole area. Love the digital remote display for temperature

TCBnc 8/19/2020

On arrival one corner of the box was torn open. You could see the plug and like another review here one of the prongs was bent over 90 degree. The rest of the box looked ok. We took delivery of the package. The prong was an easy fix with a pair of pliers.Opening the box the case around the A/C was in good shape, but you could see the fins inside the case were damaged. Since there is a wire case to protect the fins that was not damaged on the outside we could only conclude that it must have happened before it was put in the case at the factory. This did not seem to affect the cooling, because it cools great.The A/C is heavy and best to have at least two people to lift. Even though this is a window mounted air conditioner we mounted it through the wall of our home. First we installed the case into the wall where the last air conditioner was in our living room. After that we lifted the A/C into the case and put the holding screws back into place. Plugged it in and fired it up with no problems. On that side of the house we have a living room, bathroom, small hallway and spare bedroom. This A/C does very good to cool the whole area. I do not think it is very loud. I can hear the TV just fine when it is running. Sitting on the couch which is halfway across the living room I can feel the cool air from the A/C vents. I thought this was great because the two A/Cs before it I could not. One month in, during many 90 degree plus days, it has performed wonderfully. We are glad to have found this A/C."Yes" I would buy the same one again if I needed another and I would recommend it to others.

cjw1960 8/19/2020

We bought this about a month ago because we own two smaller Frigidaire units and love them. This unit does a perfect job of cooling out whole downstairs which is about 1000 square feet even on the hottest days. We love the eco mode that allows the unit to run only when it is needed. We would definitely recommend this to a friend or buy this unit again.

Dog Whisperer 8/10/2020

I purchased this about a month ago and so far it is working great! It keeps my home cool and comfortable in this high heat/humidity summer days! I love having a remote to control the temperature and other settings; it also tells me what the temperature is within my home. It switches off when the correct temperature is reached within the home, so it isn't running constantly. It is quieter than the previous one, which is a plus also! Thank You!

Works as advertised. Great Buy!

Fackurona 8/6/2020

We bought this about a month ago and it has been performing flawlessly, the unit itself works as advertised, it cools the place fast and it is not as loud as the older models. The installation set up was straightforward, place the outer frame onto the window, secure the frame and then slide the unit in.The only bad part that I can mention is that when it arrived the corner and the back part of the AC unit was slightly bent, probably from the delivery since it weighs over 100 pounds. Not the maker's fault so deducting a star will not be fair. We are hoping it is just a cosmetic problem and it won't affect the life of the unit.Time will tell if the Frigidaire still is synonymous with quality unlike some other brands nowadays.Will buy it again and again if it holds up in quality.

Very Cold

Richsix 7/30/2020

Nice features, all the bells & whistles, fairly easy install. Keeps the entire first floor nice & cool (kind of overkill for 750 sq ft but I wanted a 230 volt unit for efficiency). Occasionally turns of, then right back on, nor sure if that's normal, still well within the warranty period if it turns into a problem. Runs quietly, remote works great though I really would have preferred simple mechanical fan & temp controls (looks like that's a thing of the past with air conditioners), high tech always comes with high repair costs. But overall I'm pleased with the unit so far for the first month we've owned it.

Satisfied with the Product After a Week

Imdrivingthebus 5/28/2020

I searched all around me for a retail place that had one in stock. This is because I did not want to trust UPS to deliver such a heavy product to my home. So I purchased this online from Home Depot which is an hour away from me. If you live close you could and should pick it up there. As I feared the unit arrived in a damaged box. It was delivered while I was not home so there was not a way I could sign off. Once I opened the box I noticed several areas of damage. The plastic faceplate was cracked and a 2in. piece had broken off.there was also damage to the metal housing. A corner was bent out of place which caused some difficulty lining up the support brackets during installation. The prongs of the plug were also bent which required me to carefully bend them back into lace with some pliers. They bent easily.***After installed the unit performed fine. The damage was superficial and I decided I would not to try to send it back for a 2nd chance at a 'good' unit. I guess this is the new normal in the amazon economy. ***I almost bought a mini-split system because they are quiet and don't take up a window. But, for 1/3 the price this was still my best option. Even with the fan on high it is still pretty quiet. The controls are nice and easy. The remote is great and comes with batteries. Besides the delivery being fumbled the only other failure is on Frigidaire. How hard would it be to make an installation video with personable and detailed instruction for installing the unit? BUYERS SHOULD KNOW THAT IT WILL TAKE TWO PEOPLE TO INSTALL THIS even though it is not really that hard, having done it once before, or with decent instruction. The instruction manual is a joke. Attention Branding/Marketing here is an opportunity for Frigidaire? The instruction manual is generic to the extent it covers several similar models (not sure which ones). It does not detail the fasteners and screws like many other companies do, so you have to guess and hope you are using the right ones. This is an easy fix for Frigidaire to avoid a frustrating experience for the end user. It looks about as nice as a window shaker can after being installed. It comes with some well designed accessories to ensure the opening around the unit is properly sealed. It seems to be cooling as spec'd for my square footage. This is an improvement over a different similar Frigidaire model I had purchased a couple of years ago. It has a dehumidifier feature which I like, even though it seems to be set at around 60% ??. It would be better to have the option to adjust the humidity level but I appreciate the new feature. The unit also seems better with overall energy usage which is important to me. I hate to give it a rating since it is NEW and UNTESTED. The most important feature is that it holds up and continues to cool for next few years. What good is a wonderful seer rating when a product ends up in a landfill after only 3 years and we're mining more copper, steel, lead, processing more plastic and using more electricity to make another disposable appliance? Time will tell . . .
