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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you. Please consult a sales associate about delivery options.

Very powerful for such a small AC unit

Submitted by RAgnew - 10/5/2020

The room is about 10™€™ by 15™€™ and it cooled it off quickly. Very happy with it except it™€™s a bit noisy. We had no need to keep it on all the time as the house is well insulated and holds on to the temp once it cools off. Perfect for our needs.... and easy to put into the window opening.

I bought this air conditioner earlier this summer to cool 3 rooms. It does a fantastic job! I keep it on Low Cool and rarely have to turn it above 4 or 5. We had a very hot summer here this year and I never had a problem. Didn't add much to my electric bill, either! I would definitely buy again!

Great AC!!

Submitted by JSak - 8/28/2020

We bought this in July since it was getting very warm and we only have a single zone AC unit for the house. This AC unit has been a Godsend. It totally keeps our master bedroom comfortable for sleeping. I don't know what we would have done without it. The fact that it is a Frigidaire is a plus! Love It!!

We purchased this for a utility shed 12 x 18. After the foam insulation was blown in, this little AC keeps is extremely cool. What a great working little AC. I highly recommend it. Great product and MADE IN THE USA.

Submitted by Bbsbob - 8/9/2020

Needed a slightly larger a/c for living room. Bought this one and it actually cools the living room, dining room and kitchen. Love it. It is a little louder than I™€™d like.

Works great!

Submitted by Courtney27 - 7/31/2020

I bought this item about two months ago. It seems to really be able to cool down a room. Overnight, my house will get down to about 64 degrees with it running all night. I do have a smaller home so it works great for my house. It is a bit noisy, but nothing crazy. Just turn up the volume on the TV and it's all good. There has been a clicking noise recently here and there and has been spitting out water. Not sure if it's already having problems or not, but so far so good. I would definitely buy another one for my bedroom.

Reasonable and works well except ...

Submitted by LizMitchel - 7/25/2020

I was really happy with this A/C and have had it for a few months but recently it makes a buzzing sound that is super annoying and distracting. My husband called the company for the warranty and they told him he had to destroy the A/C by cutting the cord, and sending it in, in order to be sent a new one. this would take approximately 3-4 weeks to receive a new one, but it is the end of July and is 90 degrees. This is not a logical solution at all.

Submitted by GAndres91 - 7/8/2020

Got this as the temperatures went up and it helps stay cool really quick. The unit is very easy to use and very easy to clean the filter as well. No issues so far, would recommend to anyone!

Amazing unit!

Submitted by SammyCool - 7/5/2020

We had an old 5000btu to cool our bedroom and it always seemed hot. We upgraded to this unit, and even though it looked smaller, it packed a powerful punch. Yesterday was 95 degrees outside But in the low sixties in our room! I couldn™€™t imagine how we lived before this unit! Highly recommended!

Good AC unit for the price

Submitted by Kimbo64 - 6/26/2020

It has some good features but I would have preferred a numeric thermostat control, and an energy saver control option like my Haier unit does.However, it does work well and cools our LR down pretty quickly. The price was right for the size unit we bought.

Simple controls and quite solidly built

Submitted by Ackexpat - 6/16/2020

We wanted a simple unit without the failure prone digital controls. This is it ! It does what it is supposed to. The only small complaint is that it is a bit louder than I expected. Not really bothersome, just a bit lounge than I expected. ( It is, however, quieter than our other unit from a competing brand )

Submitted by eb395 - 6/11/2020

I bought this for my living room/dining room, to keep things cool. I can definitely feel the difference from the old 5,000 BTU I had. If I were to buy another in the future, I would buy another one of the 8,000 BTU units. Great buy!
