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.

Gurgling Noise After Every Rain

Unsatisfied in NYC 8/7/2020

I bought 2 of these units less than 3 months ago and it's been this GURGLING noise every time it rains & hits the AC. I've NEVER had this problem before and when I contacted PC Richards, they just breezily said "just bring it back for an exchange." I have 2 of these and both do that. Unless they're both lemon, I'm not going to spend money again on TaskRabbit to uninstall (which I paid them to do), hire movers to get them transported to back to PC Richards, and then bring back new ones, and then spend money again to install. What is going on? I called 800-944-9044 for answers since PC Richards isn't giving me any but just like any other big companies, it never got picked up except by an automated voice service. Shameful, Frigidaire. I just need answers. Will not be buying your name brand again in the future.

Quiet!

PoolGuy 8/6/2020

I bought this a month ago for a small room in a office and it works perfectly! The best part is how quiet it is! I love that it came with a remote and has far more capabilities than I was expecting. I was so pleased with it I bought a second one for my work office.

Fast and Powerful

shannymay 8/6/2020

This not only cools my office down fast, but I've used it to cool my entire downstairs. Really powerful. The remote is great. The reason for 4 not 5 stars is there is a weird chemical smell that permeates the house when I use it. I thought it was just "new plastic" smell, but it hasn't gone away after weeks of use.

AC for Playhouse

Mikepga 8/5/2020

I bought this AC for my daughter's 96 sq ft playhouse that she converted in to a music studio. The unit works great, cools so well that she finds herself turning it off as she gets too cold, quite a compliment in a humid Atlanta climate. It was relatively easy to install in spite of the small print in the instructions. It would've helped if I better understood that the fan fold blinds that fill the window space on the sides of the AC need to first be thread through a slot on the AC to secure it. Also, there was no mention about the drain plug, which ships covered by a plug with 2 screws, I guess given they say removing it is an option, which I elected to do.

Perfect for small rooms

Kayman 7/27/2020

I™€™ve had this AC for a few months now and I™€™m pleased. My frustration comes in two areas. First is with the remote. If I™€™m standing at the unit and I press the power on, once I try to turn it off with the remote I need to press the power button twice. My second issue is with the auto option on the unit itself. it doesn™€™t seem to read the room temp properly. If I have it set to 72 the AC should not turn off until the room reaches that temperature. There are times when it stops blowing air and I know the room is not at the desired temp. The remote will read 77 degrees but the AC is set to 72 and will stop. The previous AC I was using set the room at 72 degrees and the room was much cooler. I we have two of these units and both are doing the same thing with the remote and room temps.

Axagrl 7/20/2020

Needed a new AC for our beach house bedroom & wanted one with a remote. This model fits the bill! EZ to install, simple to operate & quiet operation made this unit a great choice. Our only suggestion would be to add a backlight on the remote, and a night mode dimmer on the Unit itself.

Frances10024 7/18/2020

I needed to replace my old AC and I needed a small unit because it had to be mounted in a transom location. I have been really happy with this unit--it's efficient, it's quiet, the remote works well--it is way better than the old AC it replaced. Have recommended to several people in my building.

Awful customer service, AC doesn't cool the room

DHAZE 7/16/2020

Bought this AC to replace a fantastic 7 year old Frigidaire AC of the same size and BTUs. This machine does a terrible job cooling the 10'x12' room. If set to the absolute lowest cool setting (65 degrees), best this machine can do is drop the temp from 85 to about 75.I've contacted customer service multiple times and do not get a response.PRO: very quietCON: very low power

Alejavm 7/16/2020

I bought this unit, couple a weeks ago unfortunately it wasn't a good buy for my room it did not cool my 112 sq ft room, the unit also had trouble going from the Fan Only feature to Cool it would stay in fan unless reset. I did like the remote control in the unit I was able to see features in a screen on the control which it was pretty good and it would been great if the AC would have worked properly, also the unit was fairly quiet but I don't know if it was because of the lack of power in it.

Quietest air conditioner I have ever had!

DataGirl 7/11/2020

Since I started using my new window a/c, my bedroom has maintained a constant temp of 72 (where I set it), and since I keep the bedroom door open, it has helped keep the bathroom cool and has even offset my big wall a/c in the living room of my apartment. Overall, my electric bill has gone down a bit because of that. The a/c is very sleek looking, and easily fit in my bedroom window. Even though it is relatively close to my bed, on medium, it makes less noise than my floor fan, even when the compressor is running. I can sleep comfortably with the soft whooshing noise. I keep it running 24/7 and have had no issues in the month that it has been used.

I™€™m not sure if it™€™s working or not.

Rocie 6/25/2020

We bought this for the bedroom. We we first turned it on it didn™€™t make much noise. So we assumed because it™€™s a smaller BTU than what we have in our living room, maybe that™€™s why. But it barely makes any sound on any fan level. Now we™€™re not complaining about that. The issue is our bedroom isn™€™t that big and the unit takes some time to cool the room. We have to use a fan in addition to help the air circulate. So basically it does cool the room at some point however, we™€™re not sure if it™€™s because it™€™s defective or not...
