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.

I bought 2 units, an 8000 and 12000. They have done exceptional at cooling our 800sp ft apartment. Super quiet and the pureair filter seems to do pretty well at minimizing dust.

Tricky to set up, but quiet as a whisper

STL_Maniac 5/20/2024

So far, only two cons:1. I thought it would take me about an hour to get it set up. It took 2.5. I have old wood windows, which made setting up the stabilizer bracket a bit tricky. That being said, when I do this again next Spring, I doubt it will take more than an hour. 2. Most of the display lights turn off automatically after about 30 seconds. But the air quality light does not. And it's pretty bright at night. I will likely be putting a piece of tape over it. The pros significantly outweigh the cons:1. It's unbelievably quiet.2. It's super efficient.3. The oscillating swing arm is brilliant. It distributes the air more evenly and more pleasantly.4. It doesn't look horrible in the window like most window AC units do.5. I bought one of the air filters for it, and I think it has genuinely improved the air quality in the room.So, I would 100% recommend this to just about anybody.

Great AC unit, if it gets shipped out

mary2723 4/29/2024

The unit itself is great but customer service has been frustrating. I ordered two of these 14 days ago and despite the claims on the website of free 2-3 day shipping, I have only received one of them. It is very hard to reach customer service (at least 20-30 min wait to talk to agent) and I am waiting for a resolution during a week with temps in the 80s and 90s.

Best Window Air Conditioner!

Revilox 4/27/2024

Was so amazed how quiet this air conditioner is. You wont even noticed it that it was on the whole night. And did i mention that it was so easy to install. Would definitely get another 2 for the other room and the dining room. So happy with it.

Frigidaire is the best way to go

Bofree 11/8/2023

If I could rate the Frigidaire AC unit a 100 I definitely would. Unexpectedly my AC unit went completely out. I had to order a part for it which was going to take two up to weeks to arrive. If you™€™re in Georgia you know that is entirely to long to go without air conditioning. So I decided to purchase a Frigidaire window unit. I absolutely loved it. This unit kept my entire room and most of house cold. One of the best features about the unit is that I could control it from my phone. I was surprised to see a window unit operating like an actual in home unit. I was able to adjust the temperature from by phone and once the house reached a certain degrees the window unit would come on. I absolutely loved it. If your thinking about purchasing a window unit, Frigidaire is the best way to go.

New U-Shaped AC Unit

Happy ACer 7/7/2023

We recently received and installed our new, U-Shaped Frigidaire AC Unit! As luck would have it, one of our AC units failed just as the hot weather got here. While out researching new AC Units I became aware of Frigidaire's new U-Shaped AC unit! We were so intrigued that we decided to purchase one as a replacement to our failed unit. This new U-shaped design handily does away with most of the clutzy gap filling methods experienced on the more traditional models. You know, the sliding side panels that never quite fit the gaps and all the foam bits needed to try and block the paths of those pesky bugs that always seem to find a way in to your home! We got the unit and managed to get it installed in under an hour. Most of that time spent familiarizing ourselves with the instructions for the install. Now, I will say that the install of the unit is a bit more involved than the traditional units we all know but once we had it figured out it went very well. And, while this unit is a bit more work to setup I have to admire just how solid and secure the install process is. I have never seen a more rugged and secure AC unit install in a residential unit. The care and design given to this is excellent! No more worrying about my AC unit falling out of the window when trying to install or remove the unit. That is a great relief as this has always been a concern of ours, especially now that we are getting older.As I mentioned, this units design gets rid of those folding side panels (which invariably break with age and exposure) by way of the U-shape design. This design allows the window sash to slide down between the blower unit and the condenser (refrigeration) unit. The beauty of this design is, (a) the sash acts as part of the method of securing the unit and (b) there is more light allowed through the window (a feature that my wife loves). This also seems to put less stress on the window sash itself. In addition, there is a very rugged frame that sits under the unit and provides support to the unit itself. This helps reduce the stress on the actual window frame as well as providing a very rigid base to the unit. This frame has fold out braces that rest against the wall outside the window for even more support! I can tell you, this unit is going nowhere.Unlike most AC units we have had, this unit also included ALL the foam spacers needed to further secure the install from those pesky bugs. They provide solid spacers for the larger openings, self sealing foam for the contact points between the window sash and the unit, the larger foam pieces for sealing the gap between the upper and lower sashes. They even go so far as to give you some pieces that help dress up (cover up) the frame unit sitting under the unit, another feature that my wife loved.Once we had the unit installed it only took seconds to power up the unit and get it in operation. The unit control features are very easy and straight forward so we were getting cold air within seconds of turning it on. It even has a feature that oscillates the vent so that the cool air is distributed across a greater area as opposed to the fixed louver vents found on most AC units.If I had any suggestions for the folks that designed this unit it would be to provide a brighter display. In bright daylight the display is a bit hard to see. One last comment on this unit that is probably the most important. We installed this unit adjacent to our bedroom. The unit it is replacing was a good unit but it was very loud and made it hard for my wife and I to sleep. We were often forced to run it at the lowest fan setting to compensate. This Frigidaire unit is amazingly quiet! You can barely hear it running, even at full blast! It is such an extra blessing to have the ability to get real cooling relief without the noise!Thank you Frigidaire designers for creating such a great unit!

Such a Breeze

jacob344 6/22/2023

This window air conditioner has been a lifesaver. We live in a 100+ year old home with no A/C and this was the perfect addition to cool down our large, top floor, master bedroom. The room gets cool within minutes and is the quietest window A/C unit I™€™ve come across. The Wi-Fi feature allows me to turn on the unit away from home so that the room is at my perfect temperature when I get home from work. I was able to install this unit on my own and am so impressed with its durable bracket system and simple installation instructions. I can™€™t say enough about this sleek unit. It™€™s truly made hot, sleepless nights such a breeze.

Really cools!

AW26 6/19/2023

This is just the air-conditioner I needed. I live in a split-level home that faces west. The afternoon heat can cause temperatures to rise to 80 degrees upstairs, and though we have central air, it just can't keep up on its own. This a/c unit has been a life-saver. I can set it to a specific temperature and it reaches it within minutes, instantly cooling the area. I try to keep the house at 75 and this has helped me to do that now in the few days that I have had it. I like how it defaults to eco-cool (energy saver) option. I also like that I can use an app on my phone to control it. Turning it on from work has been wonderful! A cool house to come home to! The sleep feature is also really nice, keeping the room from being too cold overnight. Set-up wasn't difficult for my husband (with a bit of my help!) and we really liked the side-arm foam insulators, as opposed to traditional pull-out sides. Another plus is the bracket that holds the exterior part of the a/c outside of the window. It made installation a whole lot easier. I'm very pleased with this product and will have a much cooler summer with it!
