Disappointed

LP58 8/10/2021

I purchased this air conditioner based on the number of positive reviews. I needed a new AC unit because I had a lot of people visiting and it was very hot and humid. My other AC unit is 5 years old, also an 8,000 BTU. I installed the new FFRE083WA1 in the main living area thinking that the newer unit would probably work better than a 5 yr old unit. We ended up switching out the units because the new unit did not cool and dehumidify the room as well as the older unit. If I had to quantify this, I would say it was one-third to half as cooling/efficient as the older unit. I am not normally a review writer and if I do review, I won't write until I have actually used the product long enough to make an accurate statement and feel strongly enough to write a useful statement. Hope this is useful to future purchasers.

Needs some improvements!

Sinasi 7/1/2021

I like the size of this air conditioner because it fits nicely in my window, and it™€™s also I took away two stars because it™€™s not a quiet air conditioner and I mainly I do not like the vents that regulate the air. There isn™€™t a lot of change of direction when you move them. Unfortunately, the cold air hits my feet and it™€™s a bit uncomfortable. I hope they can improve these small details in the future. I only have this air conditioner for one month, so I can™€™t tell the longevity of it. I hope it™€™s for a while.

Cool Runnings

vap44 9/10/2020

I bought this after my previous unit malfunctioned. This unit has more btu's than my previous unit, it works great and cools down my room immediately to the point after an hour or so I have to turn it off because it is soo cold. I use this unit in my bedroom and it actually cools down other parts of my apartment. So, I would definitely recommend this unit.

I bought this for my workshop (double garage) and wanted a heat pump capability as well as Air Conditioner. I've owned Frigidaire appliances and have been highly satisfied with features, price and reliability so when it came time to purchase a unit for my shop, my first choice is the brand I've come to rely on - Frigidaire and I wasn't disappointed..

Flsandi 9/8/2020

I bought this for my bedroom when the whole house system went down. With outside temperatures reaching 95 to 100 degrees, it was a life saver. I used it for days waiting for the new system to be put in. It worked great. It kept my bedroom at a constant 78 degrees.

ShellyBelly3 8/30/2020

We bought this air conditioner at the beginning of the summer, and I™€™m so glad that we did. We had an old window unit, and I never realized how badly that one worked until we got this unit. And immediately cool down the house which was wonderful. Even with the extraordinarily hot summer that we had, the air conditioner never let us down. I highly recommend it!

Perfect size air conditioner

Sola 8/25/2020

I bought this about a month ago for my elderly. I'm so glad I did, because of the hot temperatures we were experiencing and how negatively the humidity affects mom now. This air conditioner works very well at keeping two rooms nice and cool. I like the fact that it comes with a remote control and makes it very easy for my mom to turn on and off. I'm considering purchasing another one.

Bad Run

MMO6 8/24/2020

Not sure if they had a bad run on this model, but after a couple of weeks of working so amazingly well that I even recommended it to friends to buy, it began acting all kinds of wonky. Firstly, the whole entire front grill froze up. Covered in ice. No it wasn't a temperature conflict with the outside and no it wasn't because the filter was dirty. No problem though, I followed the "troubleshooting" directions in the manual and it was up and running fine again. About another week went by, and it started throwing ice out through the louvers at the top. We joked that it must think it's an ice maker and it continued to do it occasionally with no rhyme or reason to it. Couldn't find any visible ice inside the unit, so not sure where it was coming from. Then, one day, we noticed that the room wasn't dropping in temp like the other rooms were with the AC running. I tried all of the troubleshooting in the book to see why, though the air it was pushing out was coolish, it wasn't cold enough to lower the temp of the room. We contacted customer service and they were great. Though they couldn't help us resolve the problem, they refunded us the price we paid for it.

The Best AC I've Ever Had!

KBarry21 8/24/2020

Desperate for an AC that cooled and was quiet, I picked up this Frigidaire. I am a very light sleeper I need quiet and total dark and this AC delivered! Extra bonus that I can shut off all lights with a touch of the remote (I've never seen this before). It cools quickly and quietly and I am sleeping again! I highly recommend this AC unit and would most definitely purchase it again.

Simple and Efficient Cooling

frankfaa 8/22/2020

I purchased another one of these 8000 BTU unit after purchasing one a few years ago, and then I purchased a 12000 BTU version because I was happy with the product and the value. My house does not have central AC so I have many window units. These are average in how loud they are, but quieter than the units I replaced. There are a lot more features on these units, but honestly, I only use the COOL and ECO features on all of them. If you want a basic window AC unit that cools well and is reliable, get this one!
