A quiet, cool machine with installation issues.

Once installed, this air conditioner certainly does cool down the space that it was purchased to cool. However, be forewarned that the installation requires some basic do-it-yourself experience and tools, not to mention some ingenuity. The instructions on installation don't tip you off to this. The most difficult task is installing the plastic exhaust hose. The instructions suggest that you simply have to slide the ends of the hose into the back of the unit and into the window exhaust hole. The hose is too heavy to remain in place and will fall out of position. We tried taping the hose in place, but even the tape couldn't keep the hose in place. Finally, we secured the hose to the mounting ring on the back of the unit with self-tapping screws. If you have ever installed rain gutters, you are familiar with this technique. The next issue was what to do about condensation. There are two drains in the unit, but only one length of plastic hose about 12" long is provided. To cover any contingency, we placed the unit on a stand about 6" off the floor and placed a 4" deep plastic tray behind it. This is only practical if you can easily get the tray in and out of the space. We have no idea how much water will accumulate over any period of time. This will clearly have to be determined with use. We have used the unit twice on warm days, but with relatively low humidity, and it performs efficiently and fairly quietly. It remains to be seen how it will perform when the real heat and humidity of east-coast summer days arrive in ernest!

I purchased 2. The box implies they can handle a room about 100-150 sqft. I'd say that's accurate. They are not loud (as some I purchased in the past were#. They blow out very cold air. The room needs to be sealed. The digital controls, remote, and advanced automatic functions #timer etc# are worth the money. I'd buy these again - provided they are well matched to the room and overall outside temperature. Very good looking and well sized units #not bulky or tiny#. For the price we paid and the fact that we're renters, I think they are good #don't want to be fitting window units#. The window kit was easy to use and we just used masking tape to seal it #instead of supplied foam seal).

This was my third portable air conditioner. The first 2 were LG 7000 BTUs and neither one of them worked out of the box. I decided to try the Frigidaire 5000 BTU model with a bit of skepticism since it was actually smaller than the previous 2 I was fairly certain I would be bringing it back to the store as well. I took it out of the box and let it set for 24 hours to let the compressor oils settle then turned it on. I was greeted by instant cold air!!! I am trying to cool 160 square feet and this is rated for 150 but it has not failed me in the 3 weeks of Florida weather yet! I would recommend this unit to anyone wanting to cool a small room. The price is reasonable and it works. Nothing more needs to be said.

to operate with dehumidifying air, we bought the set of four bed risers at Walmart and put the casters on that to raise it up... We then placed a dishpan (low basin) under the drain hose. We certainly were NOT going to disconnect everything to wheel it away to drain and dehumidifying the air, makes it cooler in the room... If I were designing this product, I would place a bucket in it like you have with a dehumidifer and be able to remove and carry that away... As far as quiet and cooling and removing moisture, it is great and can handle emptying "our" bucket (rarely full overnight) It works well with a too wide double hung window that a window A/C is too small for..

It was WAY easier to install in the window then the huge bulky old air conditioner I have. The regular window air conditioners take up the whole window and was a pain to install and never really fit right. This Frigidaire is good for the purpose. It keeps the room comfortable and part of the kitchen is cooler, but not as cool as the living room. I plan to get another one for the upstairs then the entire duplex will be cooler for the summer. It seems to do the job fine. Easy to install and I can still look out the window.

  • A. Theoretically, Yes, but there are a few things you will need. If all your windows are the exact same size then the same plastic panel for the exhaust tube will work on all windows. If your other windows are of different sizes then you will need to order additional plastic panels for the other windows. All you will need then is some additional Grey rubber adhesive tape which goes permanently below the plastic panel and some black foam lining which goes on the top portion of the sliding window between the two window panes. You can purchase the tape and foam from any hardware store or HVAC supplier.

  • A. Yes the unit can be moved from room to room. However, the plastic piece that fits on the window sill to allow the flexible tubing to vent the air outside the room is another matter. I wouldn't want to constantly move the plastic window piece from window to window.

  • A. If you slide the exhaust hose off, which is easy. You can push it into another room to cool it, and back to reconnect.

  • A. Yes, however the window part would need moved too. It is easy to install, but I put some foam with adhesive backing on parts that looked like it had a gap. So you may need to purchase some extra foam if you plan to uninstall from one window and put in another window.

  • A. It weighs more than 15 pounds. I am a 270 pound man that stands 5ft 11in and I had a hard time getting it up the stairs. Now if you just get it out of the box and are rolling it around on the first floor then you should be ok.

  • A. The box said it weighs about 73#, but out of the box it doesn't see quite that heavy, but it still is over 50#. Once out of the box it has wheels and rolls really nice unless you need to move it up some stairs. Otherwise it moves quite freely.
