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.

Hot outside-cool inside!!

KGB56 7/30/2020

Southeast Missouri summers are known for heat and humidity, and this summer has been no exception. We replaced our twenty-year old unit with this one and didn't realize what a difference it would make. We like the multiple settings available on this unit, too. No matter how hot it is outside, we're staying cool inside!

Nice Unit

Mama Vee 7/17/2020

I had purchased this unit to replace another unit and I'm happy I had I made the right choice. The unit is nicely made, looks goods in the window with the attached window panel / insulators slid onto each side it is a nice finish, allowing the material to insulate the panels keeping the cool air in and the heat out. In addition, the mechanics of this unit is great so far, runs quiet and no water leaks outside as it is made to use the condenser to self evaporate the water itself vs. having to drain it outside using a drain kit. This is going to be a long hot summer, we are happy to have our Frigidaire keeping us cool.

KelleyJ 6/23/2020

We bought this a month ago and it is doing what it should. The economy energy saver is great.The remote is handy but sometimes it takes a few tries to work. I wish the air vents would adjust airflow more as there is no vertical adjusting and only horizontally. I was used to both as well as a split vent for even better air flow adjustment. We just leave it on eco and haven't tried the other features such as the timer. The controls seem much simpler and easier than our last A/C. Looking forward to seeing it perform several years.

It works...but not like I expected

JHeller 6/14/2020

This unit is cooling about 550sq ft for me and it does great if I leave it on cool mode. In eco mode it turns off too much to maintain a constant temperature. I bought this model for it's remote temperature sensing feature which doesn't work. The remote sensing light turns off within a few hours of being activated.

Misitlovinglife 5/25/2020

Have only used for about a week. So far it is by far the best a/c yet. Have bought other brands and straight out of the box we normally say, "better than nothing". This one cools quickly. My favorite feature is you sit the remote at far side of room you are cooling. The a/c cools room till that part of room is the temperature unit is set for.

Don1969 5/17/2020

I bought this for a 350sqft sunroom and it seems to cool well although we haven't hit the hot of the summer yet. My only real complaint is it seems to switch out of remote sensing mode and it is a couple degrees off when in that mode. I have new batteries in it so not really sure what is going on. Will see how it lasts and cools in hot summer. Overall I am pleased.

Chris 228 4/19/2020

The AC arrived with a dent on the back of the unit, and the fan does not turn off and on with the thermostat. I went to the Frigidaire website for a local AC repair company, because it is under warranty. I'll call them Monday, because they are not open on the weekends.

What a disappointment

Dontwasteyourmoney 12/11/2019

I'll walk into my room and begin sweating just to look down at the remote to see that it says it's 82°. I set it to auto as it's designed to keep my room a nice 74°, but the stupid thing doesn't kick on, AND THE FAN IS ON LOW! What a piece of crud. I have to manually turn the fan on high and turn the temp setting down to 60° just to stop from sweating!

Quality air conditioner! Gets the job done!

MrKayRock74 11/3/2019

This is a quality unit. We have one downstairs in our living room that we use for extra coolness on those extremely warm summer days. This unit effectively cools our living room, and makes our family time downstairs enjoyable. The unit is quite heavy so you may need a hand with the installation. It is a little loud, so it took some time for my family to get used to it. The unit is nicely designed so it should look great in any living spacs.

ShaneCarlos 9/29/2019

Living in s converted garage studio, I was worried about it working well with the place not being very sealed off and lack of insulation. HOWEVER, this units preformance was incredible! Cooling at almost 10 degrees an hour. I absolutely love the timer feature. Set it before work to start up and hour before I get home and just like that I™€™d come home to a comfortable cooled off living space. I should have bought it sooner. One tip to add would be if you have to put it in another room/area like I had to, use a fan placed in the entrance of the room/area to draw the cool air into the next room.

Birkst 8/27/2019

We bought this ac to use in the garage for our dog. Before you roll your eyes, YES I know she is spoiled! She is not house broken yet so she can't be inside all the time. We insulated the garage when we built the house, but it's still a garage and the heat and humidity is unbearable in the south. I love that it keeps the temperature consistent and the humidity is almost non-existent!

Works better than advertised. We no longer have to use our big fans on 102 plus days.The remote sensing is the cat's pajamas- keeps the temp at 78 here in near desert.Were up in mid 80s before, with a noisy 10,000 btu LG. Get one now! Be sure to get the remote temp sensor! Be sure to clean the evap coils- they should look like metal and not be dirt colored.

Great Cooling

Michael236 8/8/2019

I installed the unit in June and have used it almost every day since; we've had a typical hot and humid summer in MI. I only run it on low / eco and it keeps it nice and cool even when it's 90+ degrees. All the features are nice but I only use the timer and remote sensing. Installation was a breeze, much easier than my old unit. We only really need AC for 3 months here, so I'm hoping this one lasts as long as my last one did (10 years). The noise level is pretty much the same (maybe a couple decibels quieter) than my last one and it looks much nicer also. The only issue I have is with the directional controls; they don't angle enough to make much difference in where the cool air blows. Other than that, I'm very pleased with this Frigidaire AC unit.

I bought this air conditioner about the second week of July after returning a portable unit which I was not pleased with. I bought a smaller version of the exact same air conditioner last year for my bedroom and was very happy with it, so I decided to buy a larger one for my first floor. It keeps the rooms nice and cool and with the econo feature it comes on and off when it reaches the desired set temperature. It was a pleasure to have a cool area to retreat to on those hot muggy days. I would recommend this unit to anyone who needs a new air conditioner.

Way smaller and lighter then the old one it replaced, I bought it knowing two people are needed to install and take out, but it was a lot easier then the old one and i won't have to to kill myself now!! Unit is cooling off my whole down stairs (5 rooms) with no problem, i needed two units before, counting the old one. So besides this unit being very efficient I'm also saving more now with out the second unit!! The design and features that come with this unit are just great also. Thanks Frigidaire!!!

Second time around

2 Strikes 7/23/2019

I bought this brand last year and returned it back to store as the compressor was not working. Received a replacement (same model) and it did its job for the rest of the summer. Brought it out this year and started ok at the end of June and now when the unit is needed most it seems to fail. I have the setting on cool and Hi, I tried Eco (same) no change in air temperature, I cleaned the filter. In fact the air in my living room feels damp. Not cool or comfortable at all. Very disappointed for an appliance that is only in use for 3 months!?!! Going to see if the store will take it back once again. If not, I am hoping that Frigidaire will stand by their product and replace this ONCE again!
