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.

Does the job but eco mode not perfect

Dagonet 11/21/2022

I have a small bedroom for this to cool. It definitely can do the job, but I have noticed that in eco mode it does let the temperature creep up several degrees which is not ideal.

Packs a punch

Mamabella928 8/27/2022

I love this air conditioner, it cools my kitchen when needed and it very compact as I was looking for. The only thing is there is no drip hole on the bottom and I find it accumulates water on the top of the unit. Am I missing where the drip hole is?

Small and Perfect

Jhalo89 8/26/2022

What really is not to love about this window ac. It may be small but it packs a nice punch. It cools my sunroom with ease during the hottest summer days. I love that the filter is washable and the unit tells you when to clean it. I am also a huge fan of the "Eco" setting as it helps me save immensly in my energy bill. The window kit it came with is very snug and helps seal the outside nicely. The remote is also a huge blessing to have and has come in handy. I have always had great luck with Frigidiare appliances in the past. I am sure this one will last for many years to come.

Staying Cool in Flor 8/15/2022

I chose this air conditioner for many reasons. I chose because I liked the design, it has a remote, easy to install and loved all the features it offers. I would certainly order this item again if there was ever a need.

Roooster 8/13/2022

I like the fact it is quiet and efficient but the directions (instructions) for use take little getting use to you have to make sure it on and on timer or eco otherwise it keeps shutting off I know that's a feature but should be easier to get around. Otherwise I would give it a solid 4 stars so far

Perfect for 5000 BTU/hr

Farley P 8/7/2022

I am trying to get central air but two window units in my 1500 ft³ is not that bad. This unit replaced a 5000 btu/hr I got in 2005 second hand. This one is smaller and more efficient.It came with nice leak reduction foam tape that was easy to seal the unit. I guess I'd probably need to get some more of that next year. Easy install.

Does the job

flyingpanda 7/26/2022

Cools my small room. Is really loud so sometimes I have to put subtitles on my shows, but my speakers are also not the greatest. The filter light went on after only like 2 weeks, but I'm still using it. My luck, the second I buy a new filter, the central AC will be repaired and I won't need it any more.

Decent performer, Energy Star, but loud

Pdickau 7/20/2022

This is a compact, easy-to-install window unit, with great controls and functions. Eco and auto settings let this run in optimal settings, and the Energy Star rating means it's doing the best it can do while conserving as much energy as possible. Those settings also render the included remote control almost useless, as it basically runs itself. The one downside to this unit is how loud it is - much louder than anticipated based on its published decibel rating.

Most everything works great, definitely a few issues with the remote

MikeJr 7/17/2022

Love the unit and even though I don't understand how people rate the noise because all a/c units make noise when running, I feel this unit is really not that loud or annoying. As for the remote, the buttons all work like they're meant too, however I think the room temp is off plus the remote sensing feature doesn't work.

Big Fan 3000 7/14/2022

This is our third Frigidaire window unit. We bought one like this five years ago, which is still going strong. We use it to keep our bedrooms cool a night and it does the job well - and saves us money! The thermostat is a must and works great. This one is loaded with a variety of useful features, including more nuanced settings than our earlier thermostat model, plus it's smaller and sleeker than previous models. It was also also a very good price comparatively. Definitely recommend.

NOTHING BEATS FRIGIDAIRE!!We have used so many other brands in air conditioners, and none comes close. This pumps more air and more cold air than the other 5 brands we have purchased.The extended warranty is a minimal price and is another great feature from Frigidaire!!I would give this 6 stars if I could with its functioning and all of the great features!Thank You, Frigidaire!!

queendaas 7/7/2022

Does everything it needs to with a decent amount of options. Fan is a little on the louder side (even on low) so we don't use auto so it's a constant white noise at night. Cools our small bedroom down quickly (although, it's only a few feet larger than a king bed).

Where does the water drain? Model FFRE053WAE

ldyayan 7/6/2022

Noisy, but I would like to know where is the water going? I did see some condensation along the side of the unit and a little on the panels. I see no water dripping anywhere. Nothing in the windowsill and Ground is dry. It has been running for hours. It is also very humid with a dew point over 70.

Just okay

Radiate 6/25/2022

I™€™d read in some reviews that this AC doesn™€™t get very cool and I was hoping that they were wrong, but I unfortunately agree. My room is about 9x10, and it takes so long for it to cool down even a degree or two, even when it™€™s not that hot. The air coming out doesn™€™t even feel that cool which is disappointing. I wouldn™€™t really recommend it and kind of wish I™€™d spent more to get something better. I have a very old Frigidaire that works great, but as they say, they don™€™t make things like they used to.

I couldn't have asked for more. Works well in a fairly large bedroom. Quiet operation across all fan speeds. The remote and remote sensing work great as well as the electronic controls and something I could only find those features on higher priced units. And the energy efficiency is fantastic. I can definitely recommend this product.
