This Energy Star unit has an Energy Efficiency Ratio of 9.7 and is sure to provide you with savings, along with convenient, cool comfort. In Energy-saver mode the fan continues to run for 1 minute after the compressor shuts off.

The low power operation and Energy Saver mode help to conserve energy and save you money. This unit requires a 230V electrical outlet and will not work with a standard 115V outlet.

I will start by saying that finally, after installing two of these units in my 1500 sf workshop, I am very happy with them. They cool and heat very efficiently and quietly and there are not many units on the market which have the power and features of this one.

However, it was a long road getting to the happy point I am at now. I initially ordered two of these from Amazon, and they arrived quickly but both turned out to have been damaged in shipping. This is partially the truckers fault but a good deal of the blame must be laid on the manufacturer who does not package this model with sufficient protection to withstand the typical abuse which cartons endure in truck freight. There is is only about 1/2" of styrofoam between the front and top of the unit and the inside of the carton, and no crush space whatsoever. So both units arrived with bent case frames and one also had a cracked front grill piece and bent interior pieces.

Amazon offered to replace them but were out of stock so after some discussion I agreed to keep the least damaged one (I was able to bend the case back into shape) of the two for a discount, ship back the other for a refund, and order a third unit from TheFactoryDepot, one of amazon's resellers.

Well, guess what? The third unit arrived damaged in shipping as well. After much more discussion, this time with TheFactoryDepot, they agreed to allow me to go pick up a replacement at their warehouse which was luckily only about 30 minutes from my home. This unit was undamaged and so I installed that one as well.

We weren't through with our troubles though because the 2nd unit I installed (the one we picked up at the warehouse) soon started displaying a trouble code on the panel and stopped cooling.

This does not really have to be a long review to just let people know that assuming you don't have any shipping damage (as a few people have reported) this is a wonderful unit and works exactly as it says BUT what most people don't take time to read is that the HEATER is almost useless below 40 degrees, this is perfectly normal for a heat pump with no electric heat backup. Most people do not realize that their central unit has electric strips to produce heat when the heat pump cannot extract heat from very cold and dry air. My solution to this was to purchase an oil filled radiator type heater like this DeLonghi TRD0715T Safeheat 1500W Portable Oil-Filled Radiator with Vertical Thermal Tunnels (this one is exceptional and I have bought about 4 for myself, friends and work) which I only have to use when the temps are very low. The Frigidaire does an exceptional job of cooling my 300+ Sq Ft sunroom and also does a great job heating it until the temps drop below 40 and then I just place the Delonghi about 2 feet in front of it and let it blow the hot air around the room, works perfectly.

BOTTOM LINE: This is a great item as long as you understand it is a exceptional AC unit and a great heater until it gets below 40ish degrees.

This unit is installed in a workshop. It works extremely well. It isn't very quite but I didn't by it for quite. The heater functions better than what the instructions would indicate. The cooling is excellent. The most important thing to be aware of is the 30 watt 220 volt plug that is required. It is not a very common plug. Many 220 volt circuits are only 20 watt. Fortunately for me I had my shop professionally wired and had specifically had a circuit wired for this unit. I installed the unit myself through a wall. The unit weighs 126 lbs. It is also large. It is much easier to handle with a helper. I highly recommend this unit.

I purchased this combo heater / AC during the summer, it worked fine until it got cold and we needed it to provide heat for our basement. The heat stopped working shortly after we started using it. This is where the headaches began.

It is almost impossible to get a hold of someone at Frigidaire to come and fix this thing. They do not provide service directly, the number they list for warranty gets you a directory of repair services "in your area". The problem is that the ones that pick up the phone do not repair this item, and the ones that ask you to leave a voice mail never get back to you.

How the hell is this thing supposed to get fixed?

Using this at my camp in the master bedroom. Heats and cools great, but is pretty loud. I guess it's just a large old school window unit.

Love the way this unit works. Really cools the garage quickly after pulling a vehicle in that has been in the hot sun or on the road all day. Love the way the blower runs only at the speed needed to do the job then slows down and shuts off when the set temperature is reached using the econ mode. This should really be a money saver compared to my 20 year old unit that (blower motor ran all the time) gave up the ghost after a lightening strike.

It seems to have a tendency to short cycle but does not seem to hurt it. Doing some research on this issue now.

Would buy another one.

Shipping took a little longer than advertised but was not an AMAZON problem. Trucking company called and advised their truck had broken down and was in for repair.
