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.

This unit was noisy and when shut off the fan stayed on at the high setting. The only way to shut it off was to pull the plug. Very disconcerting. It has been returned.

5000 BTU AC

Happiest Mom 9/17/2021

This small Frigidaire AC has worked perfect for my daughter's small apt. in Boston. I actually took a picture of this AC when we went to preview the apt. The tenant in the apt. had the same AC and it was a cool 69 degrees inside on a hot 94 degree Boston day....that's when I knew this would be a perfect purchase for my daughter. She moved in on Aug, 20th and the AC has worked out perfectly. Since it only weights 43 lbs. she will be able to take it out of the window herself when the time comes.

Good air conditioner

KevinTR 8/22/2021

Excellent for small rooms

MCSythera 8/21/2021

Very easy to install and secure. Great for extreme cooling of 100-200 sqft rooms or a few degrees off of larger rooms. Placing the remote in the furthest part of the room from the AC is the best way to get the best results.

jlpubarch 8/7/2021

Fairly easy install considering my aluminum frame and stone sill. Works as expected. The remote sensing is a nice feature to ensure the opposite side of the room is the desired setpoint. Also, seems to use less electricity than the old model I replaced.

Stopped working in less than a year

Oscar22 7/21/2021

I Will not buy Frigidaire again. In less than a year this thing started freezing over and stopped cooling. It must be a common problem on this brand, since I had a dehumidifier that did the same. They replaced the dehumidifier, but this time I was not able to get thru on the phone with them and I needed the ac, so I bought another brand. I loss my $185, but will never happen again since I will never buy this brand again. Stay away.

Keepin' Cool!

thommy24 7/21/2021

I bought this for my children's shared bedroom. They are young and tend to wake up with the slightest sounds. Thankfully, this air conditioner is relatively quiet and doesn't seem to startle them awake. It keeps their room cool and comfortable and is very easy to use; I especially like that I can use the remote to turn it off from my own room in the middle of the night if needed (our room is on the opposite side of a short hallway). My husband didn't complain about installation, so I'm going to say that it was easy to install as well. All around, we are very pleased with the purchase!

STL530 7/10/2021

I bought this model to cool my office, which is 9' X 14" and on the top floor of our house. It cools off the space in minutes running at the lowest fan speed. The remote control is easy to use and displays the room temperature, which is a great and helpful feature. The noise level is average and fine for me. What I like the most is how compact and lightweight this unit is. It's also attractive. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Love the compact size. This is a great little air conditioner for a small space. I don™€™t recommend it for anything larger than a very small room. Has great features. We just got our second one warrantee replacement. The first one quit producing cold air after 11 months. Frigidaire was excellent and taking care of this and had a replacement on our doorstep within a week. I bought the extended warranty this time.

Doer 6/28/2021

Chose this brand over other brands because I already have a Frigidaire Refrigerator and a larger (25,000 btu) Frigidaire A/C unit. My new air conditioner (5,000 btu) has the auto shut off device that my other brand named unit did not have. This unit is quiet and cools the room and hallway. Very pleased.

I purchased this model based on the high efficiency rating and "eco" mode. The remote control makes it very easy to adjust. I have this mounted in a window in a 160 SQFT insulated, workshop/shed and keeps it quite cold and bearable in the Texas summer heat.

Perfect for Small Rooms!

Lks61 6/23/2021

I am completely happy with this air conditioner. What I love best is the temperature sensing remote. With other air conditioners, the thermostat is in the air conditioner itself so when the air near the unit reaches the programmed temperature, it turns off but across the room, it may be up to 10 degrees warmer. With the temperature sensing remote feature activated, you place the remote across the room and the unit continues to cool until the programmed temperature is reached at the remote. The unit is relatively quiet although it gets louder with each fan speed. It has a timer feature and sleep mode as well. The price was inexpensive too! It has all the bells and whistles of a larger more expensive unit. I am very impressed with all the features and pleased with how well and quickly this air conditioner cools the entire room and in Texas during the summer, that™€™s saying a lot!

Works well

user 27 6/19/2021

The Eco mode (which automatically activates when the machine is turned on) doesn't seem capable of cooling my little 100 square foot bedroom to 74 when it's 90 and humid out. Once I switched over to the straight "cool" mode, it was no problem though. It's a compact, easy to use machine and I like the remote (though it thinks it is 2 degrees warmer than my thermostat does). No issues with installation/assembly. It's somewhat loud but doesn't bother me as I have it on when sleeping. So far so good!

window unit A/C

Skye19 5/29/2021

Bought because my older unit was, indeed, older. It is "permanently" installed in the bedroom window as I no longer can lift it in and out seasonally. Works fine, I like how it cycles on and off reacting to the set temperature, BUT is uncomfortably noisy. Even if not in a bedroom, the noise is almost too much. No solution.

Nice but can be destructive

The Nina 3/15/2021

I purchased it last spring and everything was going great until the hard summer rains. When the hard rains come, water pours from under the window frame. I remove the unit from the window and during hard rains no water comes from under the window frame. What is truly frustrating is this seems to be a common problem and Frigidaire has not tried to address this issue. I'm a loyal customer. My other 2 units are also Frigidaire.
