    We own a 104 year old two story 2800 sq. ft. Historic home that is solid brick with absolutely no insulation. We have a window at the top of the staircase where we have installed our Frigidaire 28,5000 BTU air conditioner. With the use of several velocity fans to drive the air throughout the house, this unit cools the entire house very nicely. Whenever we tell people that we are cooling our entire home with this unit and velocity fans, they simply cannot believe it! OK, because the unit often runs longer, and at a lower temperature to accommodate all the space its cooling, it tends to be a little chilly in the small area surrounding the unit. We feel that this minor irritation, along with the added white noise from the fans that accompany it,is a very small price to pay for cooling such a large multi-room home with a total insulation value of about 3. I would also like to add that we live in a part of South Dakota that is known, surprisingly enough, for it's heat and humidity, making the performance of this air conditioner all the more impressive. I write very few reviews, but I wanted others to derive the same benefit we are receiving from this well built efficient air conditioner.

    NOISE !!!

    When the compressor kicks on, it's like having a freight trtain roll through the room. Forget sleeping, or hearing tv. Very very noisy.

    AC Frigidaire window unit

    By mskjlove

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Frigidaire 28,500 BTU Window Mounted Heavy Duty Room Air Conditioner:

    I can not give a true review, I did purchase the Frigidaire window-mount heavy duty air conditioner when it arrived I was so excited that it arrived two days earlier than I expected, but I was disappointed and upset because it had a 6-30 plug on it. Not a 110 plug. I would have to have my house rewired to accommodate the voltage. It looks nice and would have fit my standard size window. But I had to return it. :-(

    Comments about Frigidaire 28,500 BTU Window Mounted Heavy Duty Room Air Conditioner:

    I have always purchased Frigidaire products because of their quality and reliability and this air conditioner is no exception. It cools my entire top floor of my home and it is so quiet that I have to check to make sure that it is still on!! It is easy to operate and it looks great too! I know that I will be using it for many years to come. As always, I can always depend on Frigidaire.

            Comments about Frigidaire 28,500 BTU Window Mounted Heavy Duty Room Air Conditioner:

            Normally we set it at 74 degrees, energy-saver, auto-fan-speed. It turns itself off and on as needed. When it's on we turn up the sound on the TV and stop talking.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Installation took two men about three hours. Having a motorized crawler/lift aided immensely. They had to remove the old A/C and sleeve and make the existing opening wider and shorter. The standard installation included new trim around the new opening.

            Comments about Frigidaire 28,500 BTU Window Mounted Heavy Duty Room Air Conditioner:

            I mostly just wanted to tell people that these big units fit in smaller windows than described. (says min. width 31") My window was 26.5 and it fit perfectly. Just don't use the wings. I put off buying a large unit for several years since I didn't think it would fit. I think the manufactures might sell more if they let people know this.
