Top Customer Reviews
I have always preferred air purifiers with built-in ionizers, and this air conditioner works the same way, removing pollen and other impurities from the air. The air coming out smells fresh, even when the compressor has cycled off.
But the ionizer isn't the only nifty feature of this Frigidaire. With an 11.3 EER, the machine is exceptionally efficient. My beloved old Panasonic a/c would make a 15-amp extension cord I use to connect the unit to a dedicated circuit warm to the touch. This Fridgie is so efficient, it doesn't warm the extension cord at all.
I also like the selectable temperature sensor in the remote. This enables the a/c to hold the room temperature to the exact setting where you actually sit or sleep, up to twenty feet away from the machine.
Other features include timer on/off, auto fan speed, fan only, air vent and exchanger, check filter reminder light, plus a sleep feature that gradually increases room temperature by a few degrees while you snooze to save money. I tried this once and didn't like it -- I like to sleep at 71 degrees, not 75.
It is interesting to note that this air conditioner doesn't dribble water outside, as my previous units have. Instead, the fan catches the condensate and throws it against the hot condenser grill at the back of the machine outside the house, which I assume also helps cool the grill and perhaps contributes to the unit's efficiency.
It is possible that the audible splats of the water hitting the grill could bother nearby light-sleeping neighbors with open windows. So far no one has complained, and the splatting sounds are NOT audible inside my apartment.
Otherwise the Fridgie just does its job without calling attention to itself in any way. I will be interested to see my electric bills this year; I expect considerable savings.
So if you're looking for a super-efficient, kick-ass a/c with a built-in ionizer and remote temperature sensor, look no further. The Frigidaire is beyond compare!
* Built-in ionizer.
* Exceptionally efficient (11.3 EER).
* Remote temperature sensor.
* Air vent and exchanger.
* Very quiet compressor without perceptible thermostat click.
* Fine value for the money.
* The plastic of the vent opening lever and the inside grill holding the air filter seems rather lightweight and flimsy, but neither part has broken in use yet. Still, I would suggest that you handle these pieces carefully. I assume the manufacturer has kept these parts lightweight to hold down the unit's overall weight.
UPDATE: I bought this A/C in the spring at a local chain appliance store here in NYC. After writing up my order, the (I presume) commissioned young salesman attempted to bluff me into believing that I might have done better paying more for a Friedrich or Sharp, neither of which had an ionizer. Though he wouldn't slam the Frigidaire, he said it might need "more tweaking" to maintain optimal performance.
Well, here we are approaching the end of an admittedly mild Big Apple summer, and the machine has worked perfectly. No tweaking needed other than to clean the air filter when the reminder light comes on. Also no complaints about excess noise. Although another reviewer has pointed out the thinness of the foam wall separating the inside of the machine from the outside, that wall is sufficient to suppress entirely the sound of condensated water splatting against the outside fan inside my apartment. So my review stands -- I'm delighted with this air conditioner.
UPDATE NUMBER TWO: no "tweaking" needed after two summers in NYC. I was as cool -- and happy -- as a clam... Oh, I did have to replace the batteries in the remote. Otherwise, smooth sailing...
UPDATE NUMBER THREE: I'm in summer number three of this air conditioner's life, and the temperature sensor in the remote control has started giving false readings, several degrees lower than those seen on an adjacent (and accurate) room thermometer. This means that if I use the remote sensor to control the A/C, the room temperature rises several degrees above my preferred setting. I called up Frigidaire to ask if the remote could be fixed or re-calibrated -- I tried changing the batteries, which didn't help -- and was told no, if I wanted to use the remote sensor feature, I would need a new remote -- cost, $53 with free shipping. Aargh -- that's a lot of money for a feature that's not that important (the A/C keeps the temp fine using its built-in sensor). So I disabled remote sensing. The remote still works fine as a remote, but I have deducted a star for the sensor's failure after only two years. To Frigidaire's credit, the support personnel were Americans, and I had no trouble understanding what they were saying over the phone. Otherwise the A/C is working fine...
Granted I put this big a/c in a room that is only 250 sq. ft, but I did it for this exact reason. So I can run it on econ low, instead of
Hi 24/7 like with my old one. My old one was old, about 10yrs old and 8000 btu's but when it gets hot and humid here, I always had to run it on high. It is not too hot here now, but it will be by the end of next week. I doubt I will have any problem with this a/c running on low or med in the 90+ degree heat and 90 percent humidity of NY.
This a/c is also the quietest one I have ever owned. It is better than the "Library Quiet" one we have in the other bedroom.
And I love the Clean Air setting and it also have 2 vent settings along with the 3 fan settings and 3 cool settings. And it lights up when you have to clean the filter.
Also, Amazon's amazing service was as usual, excellent. It got here in less than a week and in perfect condition.
I would recommend this one to anyone who asks.
This unit works well. That is, the air blowing from the vent is very cold. The remote temperature sensor is an excellent idea, as in most houses the air very close to the unit will get cold long before the air at the far side of the room, causing the unit to turn off when the rest of the room is still warm. This unit resolves that issue--just set the desired temperature on the remote control, set the remote down, and point it toward the air conditioner and it will maintain the temperature. The three fan speeds are more than sufficient to let the user choose between a quieter unit (quiet being very relative, read on!) and having the cold air thrown further across the room. The fresh air intake or exhaust switch is a nice option, though it is a very small amount of air--I'd estimate about 2-4% of the air being moved by the unit. This is useful for preventing a well-insulated room from getting stale air, but it won't let you cool your room with outside air if it is cool outside and hot inside--you will still need to either run the air conditioning compressor or open a different window in the room.
However, the unit is made of inferior materials. For instance, the part of the unit that separates the condenser (outside section of the unit) from the evaporator (the inside section of the unit) is made of very thin 3/8" styrofoam. The styrofoam sweats on the outside, indicating that you are losing some of the cold air you are paying for. In addition, the styrofoam is so thin that the interior of the unit is illuminated--it does not stop the sunlight from penetrating, so if you need to sleep in a dark room during the day, this may be a concern to you. The unit has two air vents which move independently up, down, left, and right, but there is only a slight perceptible difference in the actual airflow observed when moving the vents from blowing full left to full right.
The unit is very loud. Before I purchased this unit, I researched the noise levels. Many units can be loud from poor installation and vibration, but I ensured this unit was installed properly and that all vibration was minimized. It is not the installation that is the problem, it is the design. The thin, thin styrofoam does not insulate from noise any better than it does from heat. The manufacturer's website claims that the unit emits 52dB of sound on low speed (this would be a very quiet air conditioner). Using a decibel meter, which measures sound, I was getting 65-67dB from this unit at a distance of 6-8 feet. (This is, by comparison, loud). It is louder than my clothes dryer, though not as loud as an average vacuum cleaner. Still, it is hard to sleep with the unit running on its lowest speed, and I am one who prefers white noise.
The side filler panels (the accordion-looking pieces that expand left and right to fill the window frame) are painfully thin and leave large gaps within their own housing (what I mean is that this is not from poor installation, it is a design flaw) where bugs can get in and I can feel hot air blowing in from outside. If your window frame is larger than the unit, you will need to get some sort of foam insulation panels to help block the outdoor air from just blowing inside your room.
In short, this unit performs as expected, but its design flaws lead me to put this unit outside in my shop instead of my bedroom. I much prefer my LG window air conditioner, which is built much better. It is quiet, seals well, and seems to be made of superior materials.
