Window unit air conditioners have come a long way over the decades. No longer are we stuck with obnoxiously large, noisy, and ugly looking window air conditioners. The 8,000 BTU Window-Mounted Room Air Conditioner is stylish and easy to install. The whole process from start to finish takes around 15 minutes. The instructions were easy to understand and follow. The only steps that required actual labor was attaching the adjustable side panels and putting the unit in the window. One thing everyone should be doing when installing any AC is putting some sealant around the tops and bottoms of where the vinyl accordion panels slide to stop a draft from coming through.

This air conditioner has done a great job of cooling a room that runs two computers nonstop and the beating sun shining in from the windows. When adjusting the temperature on the unit, the remote control has a small screen on the top that shows you the current temperature of the room and lets you select what you would like it to be. On top of that, the sound is rather silent and keeps a steady hum at multiple speeds. There are a few modes you can select from, cool, econ, and fan only options. When the unit is used for the first time it will run on an energy saving mode. Also, there a clean air option that comes with a filter that can be washed and reused.

So far this air conditioner has worked wonders. Usually there is a con list of things in every product, but this unit has had nothing but pros here. It does its job and it does it well. The price is not even that high up there compared to most air conditioners. On the actual Frigidaire website, however, it’s more expensive than Amazon or BestBuy with the price being $289. BestBuy has the best price on it right now with it being on sale for $209.99. Plus, it has free shipping.

"Works great for small homes, but not to be used in your bedroom or close to TV, it is not so silent, the noise bothers, overall, works well." Brandon T. Boston, MA

"I bought this to cool down my apartment and it does. I drop the temp at night so it is cold. During the day I set it at 72." Rachel M. Boston, MA
