    I had an old 5000 btu for over 15 years that made loud noise that was nice. The sound put me to sleep :-) I miss that now, as this one is as quiet as a fan!! The cooling system is awsome!. I held my remote/infared sensor up to the unit and it shoots out 22* Digrees!! Totally awsome and I also have central air in my 3rd floor apt. The sun shines all day long on my roof and walls and it never gets lower than 74* in here..:-( I love the cold!! This one is in my bedroom window and with the door shut it cooled down in bout less than a hour to 60* in the room. I have a cat, so at night I have to leave the door cracked open for him and the room still stays so cold that I have to sleep under my comforter >:) The remote is awsome too:-) I love toys and each time I walk into my bedroom I hit the power botton just to turn the unit on and then off again during the day :-) Love, Love, Love this A/C!! Just wish it made the same loud noise that my really old one did....

    I have this a/c in my living room window. I didn't think it was gonna do much because my living room, dining room and kitchen are separated by 4 columns and a door way. So its basically supposed to cool 3 rooms. That's a little over 500 square feet. So i thought i was settling for a 8k when i really needed a 10k. Well i'll be darned! When i first put it in the window, my thermostat read 79 degrees, after leaving it on high for about 3 hours, it came down to 71. The air flow is so powerful when its on high that i could feel it while standing in the back of my kitchen. The people who complained about it being too loud are right. When its on high, its loud. There's no denying that. Its actually louder outside tho. But once u get the temp down to a reasonable number, u can turn it down to low and still remain cool without the noise. Overall i am very happy with my purchase! Especially since i didn't have to shell out an additional 50 bucks for the 10k!

    8000 BTU Exceeds Expectations

    We live in the Houston area and hurricane planning is a way of life. I wanted a window unit that would cool our 380 SF bedroom and use minimal electricity, as I planned to use with a small generator if the power goes out in the summer. (In Houston that means all of hurricane season.) The little unit was a breeze to assemble, light in weight, and popped right into the window. I decided to give it a test run, so we turned off the central AC unit and ran the window unit for a day. It was perfectly sized for the room, if not a little over-capacity. Running with the fan on auto, it stays on the lower fan speed automatically. Don't you know, our large central AC went out and now we are using the little unit daily until repairs are made. It is in the mid nineties these days and the unit is keeping our bedroom at 70 degrees without a strain. It uses just a tad more energy than the 5000 BTU units. I love the large lighted temperature display and the remote control cleverly stores on the unit magnetically. This item is good enough to use every day.

    GREAT Air Conditioner
    5/25/2012

    Customer review by BBernardelli

    We just bought this air conditioner on 5/23/12, and it is awesome! It has a built in thermometer that detects the temperature of the room, so when you turn the temperature down, it will automatically cool until it gets to your desired temperature. Once it gets to the desired temp, when your room starts to warm up, the air conditioner will automatically kick on to bring the temp back down to your desired level. It was VERY easy to install, has a nice little remote control (batteries included), not too loud when running (like a normal room air conditioner), and keeps our room very cool! In fact, the room we have this unit in is a large living room, about 20X40, and I am sitting here getting cold as I write this, and this room is facing the sunlight! I would go as far as to say that if you had a small home or a single wide mobile home, this would probably cool the entire living area and kitchen combined. Comes with a one year GE warranty, so you can try it risk free. A great price at around 200, and GE is a trusted name in electronics. I highly recommend buying this item.

    Our one bedroom apt was averaging 88 degrees, so we finally gave into buying an AC. Our cats weren't doing so good because of the heat, and we weren't either. We decided to get one that was from a local store..... Worst idea. It was a 5500 BTU, but it was bad. It didn't blow anything really. We took it back and started looking at Walmart's ACs online. We found this one and one that was $20 cheaper, but we ended up going with this one based off the reviews. THIS IS AN AWESOME AC!! It not only cools our dinning room where it sits in the window, but also our kitchen and huge living room. Our living room sits at about 75 degrees now :) this is a very powerful AC unit and we are so glad we went with this one! Still wish it was a little cheaper, but it is worth the cost! :) It doesn't reach our bedroom, but that's because it is the farthest room from it around a corner.

    I own 2 of these. Just bought a 3rd for a spare. So far no problems. The bedroom unit is about 4 years old. The living room unit is about 2 years old. Puts out icy cold air. Right now we're going thru a record breaking heat wave. These units put out about the same noise as other a/c's in this price and BTU range. I like that I can set a delay turn on for the bedroom. When we're ready for bed, the room is nice and cool. We live in the northeast, so our cooling season is only about 4 months a year. Make sure the unit is tilted out the window a bit. If it's not tilted properly, water may run in side your home. Overall it seems well made. I wish they would put the rear coil protector back on. Almost all air conditioners have eliminated that. You have to be careful not to bend the rear fins. If too many get bent, the air won't flow thru properly, and the unit will have to work much harder. The remote works great. For the price, you can't beat it.

    This ac was recommended for room size of about 400 sq. ft. but it has cooled down the entire 1000 sq. footage in the house. Absolutely pleased with the performance of this ac. I really debated back and forth on an 8,000 or 10,000 BTU and am glad I saved a little with the 8,000 being able to do much more than I expected. Was hesitant but also familiar from past experience with some working and performing well above what they are recommended for in room size. Great price for the performance it puts out.

    We ordered this air conditioner online and we received it at our home two days later. We utilized the $0.97 shipping promotion and it was via FedEx. The air conditioner is relatively small but it's definitely powerful and I've actually had to turn it down because, at 70 degrees, the small guest room it's in become a little too chilly! The unit is generally lightweight. The installation instructions were adequate and it was relatively easy to install. We ordered this unit for our guest bedroom and have ordered another for the master.
