This was a terrific value, it cost half of the 20-yr old GE unit it replaces and it includes high efficiency and electronic features. It comfortably cools our entire first level but if you like "frigid" temperatures, I would say to over-size it a bit. The remote is very handy, although I find that the automatic remote temp sensing doesn't work too well, at least in my case. My floor plan is not very open. Overall I'm very satisified and it's worked flawlessly the past few months of almost continuous use so far.

Purchased this AC to replace a ten year old 18,000 BTU unit. Tis unit does not have the cooling power of the old unit. The remote control and energy efficient are nice add ons but the bottom line is that it cant get the same area past 77 degrees. Since the unit is very heavy and I needed to construct a platform to install it I could not return it for a stronger model. Money lost.

          Comments about Frigidaire 18,500 BTU Window Mounted Median Room Air Conditioner:

          It's all relative - any 18,500 BTU A/C unit is going to be heavy, and produce noise. This unit replaced an ancient (25+ year-old) 15,000 BTU unit. The output is the same as the old unit. The new unit is much lighter (all new ones are lighter than the very old ones), and a bit quieter.

          This unit is used to cool 4 rooms on the first floor, and on extremely hot days I set the tempperature at 67 degrees.

            Comments about Frigidaire 18,500 BTU Window Mounted Median Room Air Conditioner:

            I could not be happier with this window A/C. It replaced a 12,000 btu unit. When on low, the fan is quiet, and when left on automatic it has no problem cooling my dining room and living room in my brick chicago 2-flat. Plenty of cool air, nice controls, even has a temperature sensor on the remote. It is a well thought out appliance. Buyers need to remember this is an 18,500 btu unit so it won't be as quiet as a mouse. However, for the size it is definitely quiet. I could not be happier. Also as a modern unit it was much lighter than the old heavy model it replaced. Also I discovered that it comes with a sleeve for stable window installation.

              This air conditioner does a great job. I love the energy efficiency and the option that is most useful is where the system will shut itself off when the desired temperature is reached. The only downside is that the interior is all plastic making me concerned about how long this will last.

              Service and delivery comments:

              The delivery was prompt and the deliverymen were very friendly. It's the reason we keep going back to Abt.

              I have our new unit in the window of a smaller front office. Cools the room effectively, sometimes too much, but I can control it from my desk with remote and that is a great plus!! It's very heavy, but easy to install. Had to convert power plug, but was not a big deal. Overall great product for what we needed.

                  I think this is a good air conditioner in general. The only complaint I have is that you have to set the temperature lower than what you desire to get the room cooled off. Other than that,we are very happy, and it is much quiter than our old one.

                  I had the unit installed as it is a bit heavier than I thought, the installer did a great job in about 90 minutes. It is so much quieter than the old unit and I'm leaving it on economy mode which samples air every 10 minutes when not running. The temp readout on the remote is about 5 degrees higher than real temp and I set the unit about 5 degrees cooler than real temp to hold the room even. I haven't seen the electric bill but expect that to be lower.

                  Delivery was right when they said, the driver called ahead to say where he was and how long until he arrived.
