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.

Enjoyed less run time as compressor and circulating fan both shut off when set temperature is achieved.Shipping package could be more robust as it was damaged on a corner of the exterior cabinet.

Uncontrollable Dogs 9/6/2022

Recently purchased a new air conditioner.Was really surprised by how powerful and quiet it was. Blows lots of cold air with no vibration. Easy to install, too. The only issue was after installing, I had to use a can of latex foam to seal out the bugs and make the installation air- tight--- this is between the inner unit and the outer shell at the bottom of the unit. Very easy to do and took less than 5 minutes. Overall, quite satisfied with my purchase.

LOVE IT SO FAR

Andrea100 8/23/2022

So far I love almost everything about this unit. It replaced another old Frigidaire that was still working but only 8,000 but™€™s. It was given to a friend and now has a second life and still working. This was the best in the market for the price. I only wish I had gotten a model with WiFi.

Cucumber cool!

Dunckley 8/21/2022

Frigidaire makes frigid air! This unit replaced a 25+ year old unit that went to AC heaven.After shopping around via ratings and reviews, I decided on this unit only to discover so many other folks had done the same. Several phone calls led me to a nearby appliance center that had it in stock and I was on my way. I can't say enough good things about this unit: it's quiet, cycles on and off as it should, and the great thing (one of them) is a "clean my filter" indicator. Love this unit! I'm seventy years old...it'll out live me.

Great Unit

KLB57 8/17/2022

Bought this unit for cooling the bottom floor of our small farmhouse. This unit handles the task and does it while being surprisingly quiet. Unit this far also seems to be very efficient. Installation was straightforward and the unit is appealing looking in the window.

The unit purchased was replacing a similar Frigidaire unit, and I was pleased it fit in the exact same frame, making install easy.I also like the ™€œremote sensing ™€œ feature on this unit, which better controls the temperature in the large add on room where it™€™s installed.

24/7 Non- Stop Reliability

Marshall 53 8/4/2022

This well-designed AC unit was installed on 6/9 in the midst of constant 98-degree weather, similar to a drought in this area in the Summer of 2000. A few days after placing the unit in service on 6/9, it has operated flawlessly, keeping a portion of my home cool and comfortable, 22 hours a day on max settings. Price point for this size unit is correctly marketed and much appreciated. The competition cannot compete with the designed quality of the internal components. Continuous days of 100-degree heat in the South can be dangerous without a reliable AC unit. Thankfully the Frigidaire unit lives up to its name brand and operates flawlessly while in a severe duty mode of operation. I wish the local box stores kept this size unit in stock continuously.

Can not give higher rating at this time, so far unit Working fine. I will say Frigidare stepped up when i received my original damaged unit, sent replacement within 7 days. The new remote takes alittle getting use to and the indicator lights hard to see lit with any daylight shining on unit, my older unit very simple to operate.

A+ Cooling power,

KYAdam 7/12/2022

I wait to review items. After 1.5 summers where daytime temps can remain in mid/upper-90s for weeks, with nightly lows in upper-70s & low-80s, I rank Performance (cooling power) as Excellent. This window unit blows into a 22x14 ft living room & 11x14 ft kitchen. Thanks to the easy to use thermostat & temp setting, I can let the rooms get up to 80 when I™€™m not home. When I return, this unit can return the rooms to a comfortable 70 degrees in short work! When it comes to doing it™€™s job, A+ / 5 Stars. Other Pros: The unit has a clean, stylish appearance. The remote is convenient and easy to use. The replacement batteries simple AAAs (unlike my ceiling fan remote by another brand that requires a $8 replacement). Also unlike the ceiling fan, you can control this AC unit without the remote using the aesthetically appealing buttons on the front face. Areas for Improvement: The remote only shows the room temperature. You have to look to the front display to see what temp you™€™re setting the unit at. The remote does NOT tell what mode or settings are a active (Mode: Fan Only, Auto, Cool, Dry ™€" Fan Speed: Auto, Lo, Med, Hi ™€" Remote Sensing ™€"Timer: On, Off). I included a photo of the front panel taken with max zoom from my recliner 11 ft away. As of last year, I have 20-20 vision, and I can™€™t tell what my settings are on without walking over to the unit to check. It™€™s that or memorize where each setting is located so it can be identified by the green light location. There have been times I had the unit on but in Fan or Dry mode instead of Auto. I don™€™t realize this until I walk over and see it™€™s in the wrong setting. I recommend adding more info to the remote. I purchased this unit online through WalMart. It arrived with heavy damage to the box. The frame was also damaged. A less capable customer would have had difficulty installing the unit due to a bent rail in the housing. The front face was cracked and the coils were damaged. I purchased this during an emergency and did not have the luxury of returning the unit. WalMart was not helpful, but I do not hold this against Frigidaire. Although I purchased new, it appeared I got a used unit, or one from a ™€˜Dent & Scratch™€™ appliance store (where I would™€™ve paid 50% less). Con: The unit makes a deep, loud sound when it activates. Guests tend to get a funny look on their faces when for 1-2 seconds it sounds like heavy equipment is ramping up. Once it™€™s running, the sound is equal to or any other window unit.

DRasch 7/5/2022

My new airconditioner is wonderful. Cools nicely (I have it set on 74 & need to wear a sweater sometimes) My only suggestion is to make the control panel with larger print as I am a senior & hard to read but nice I can just set it & forget it!

The Window Unit has inly been installed fir a short time and up to now it is working fine. The unit was ordered on line and sent to Lowes for customer pickup. The first unit came in badly damaged. It was refused and a second ordered. This unit had some damage in one place on the top of the window case. Packaging is very insufficient to protect the unit for shipping. There did not appear to be any damage to the internal A/C unit and it seems to be working as it should.

Works well, but not sealed from outdoor air well.

John 62 5/29/2022

The unit works well, but is not sealed well to its outer cabinet enclosure or the outdoors. There are internal areas sealed by only styrofoam, which can be chewed through by a mouse. There are other internal areas simply open, as can be found by seeing light through the unit with the filter removed.

Stebo 5/27/2022

Ac works great, although UPS dropped it off at the road by the mailbox, upside down, we can't see the mailbox from our home, anyone could have stolen it. wish I had a picture, don't use UPS. But the 18000 btu ac is doing great and looks nice. Slow fan is not as quiet as I think it should be, little rattling but overall great ac.

Cool and Quiet

Customer1963 5/26/2022

This AC replaced an older Kenmore that lasted 10+ years. My wife and I could not find a handyman to install, so we did it ourselves. Fortunately, this one fit the old Kenmore window case perfectly, so it slid right in. I suspect Frigidaire also made the old one that we bought from Sears. It is quieter than our other AC which is an LG brand and cools very well. We are very happy with this AC.

Frigidaire - 18,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner with Slide Out Chassis

shadow mountain 5/14/2022

Haven't had a chance to use it yet. We replaced our old Montgomery Ward 18100BTU window unit with the Frigidaire - 18,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner with Slide Out Chassis. The old Montgomery Wards unit was over 40 yrs. old and thought we better replace it before it broke down. We hope this new unit will surpass the old unit. The only concern I have is the dirt that will get in the outside chassis and how to keep it clean or maybe their is no need to worry about that.
