I bought this for room that is often hot in summer sun. It works like it should and cools room several degrees. It does stay running just because its hot outside. The only thing I don't like is the condensation water that is built up inside. Even tilted the water is settling inside. There should be a drain hole for water to exit out. Only had unit for 3 months this summer so we shall see if it holds up for next summer.

I bought this unit on the recommendation of a home product testing review. Unfortunately, it does not match the review. This unit makes a lot of noise, especially when running in high humidity conditions and/or during rain (which is when one really needs it to work!). The water does not drain from the housing, so it is picked up and blown about by the fan. This creates a loud, intermittent sound which is very annoying. This sound persists until there is a dry day and the water evaporates. Also, the louvered vents do not blow air efficiently in multiple directions. I would not recommend this unit.

Comments about Frigidaire 8,000 BTU White Window-Mounted Compact Room Air Conditioner:
The unit cools the Room nicely...I have had two of them. The problem is the electronic controls go all wonky...yes, that's a technical term. The mode changes, the temperature changes, it turns itself off..completely. sometimes the controls don't work at all. And it happens with both of these units. I'm frustrated, sometimes I'm hot and frustrated. I won't continue to buy Fridgidare because evidently this is a problem in the product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Cools a room but you can't stand the noise
from Long Island, New York
We bought this air conditioner for my son's room. He has complained from day one that it makes a squealing sound. We didn't pay much attention to it until he finally told me he was going to throw it out the window because he is losing his mind listening to this sound.

from Longview, Tx
This noisey unit has it faking coming on for a period of time to cool room, it has a long u running period then it comes on for about 15 seconds & shuts off. This goes on for hour or two before it kicks in to do it's actual cooling job which it's noisey during this time. I feel like this would make electric bill higher, not less. Anyway, I need to find better unit to get the job done!!

Good unit but too noisy
Good unit, but too noisy
Works like a charm!!
Have used it since June whenever it gets humid outside. We use it to cool the entire upstairs and have it on a very low cool setting at like 68' to 70' and it's simply amazing how well it cools the whole area. Is also very quiet. Would definitely recommend.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not what I expected for so much money!
This ac unit has rattled from the day it arrived! I am not impressed at all with this ac! I read other reviews that said the same thing but I thought that people were exaggerating!
normal person I have two of these ac's and love them both
This product has a good cooling capability but makes too much noise at times. Needs getting used too.
