I bought this AC to cool a 163 sq. ft. attic office because my central air just couldn't quite do the job. I picked it mostly because of its 12.2 SEER, Energy Saver mode, Auto Fan feature, and timer, but also because of the price, brand, and color. It works great! It's not too loud, and blows cold air all the way across my 14' long room! I did have a little trouble installing the side panels because the pictures in the installation guide didn't show enough detail, but I figured it out. In Energy Saver mode, the fan cycles on every 10 minutes for 10 or so seconds, I guess to sample the room temperature. It's a little irritating. But it has a "cool" mode where the fan stays on all the time and just the compressor cycles, so I can switch to that if it's too irritating then use the timer to save a little energy while I'm at work. Nice to have a choice. I'm very pleased and am glad I chose it!

We liked the price and I was happy about the remote control and energy features. However, the energy saving mode is definitely something you have to get used to. It cycles on every 10 minutes to sample the air. If it doesn't need to go on, it just shuts down for another 10 minutes. I'm not sure why it can't just use an ambient temperature sensor and only go on when it needs to. We may have to go back to straight cooling mode where the fan runs constantly. Also, the water retention feature, where it saves the accumulated condensate water to splash on the evaporator coils to help it cool adds some funky sounds. On really humid days, the accumulated water sloshes around a lot when the fan starts and stops. I'm not sure I'd buy this unit again.

A Truly Great Air Conditioner
By Professor Norman
from Hoboken, NJ, United States
We bought the Frigidaire FFRE0533S1 air conditioner a couple of months ago after suffering from the summer heat. It was a great relief to have this machine functioning: its performance is excellent in every way, in terms of cooling and directing the cool air around the room. The installation was easy, with very clear directions, and the fitting of its frame and body parts is really impressive engineering. The price was modest considering the high quality of the machine. I recommend it to all my friends.

Caved and Got AC After Nearly Four years
from Brooklyn, NY, United States
I've lived in my apartment for three years, and before that, I lived in an A/C-less dorm for a semester. You could say I stood the heat and stayed in the kitchen for a very long time. What made me decide to finally succumb to the 21st, nay the 20th century? A full time job. Halfway through Summer '16 I put my foot and my fan down and said enough is enough, and I am so glad I did. This A/C works like a charm and is the perfect amount of white noise. My ~75 sq ft room left me shivering during the dog days of August and I loved every second of it. Fantastic product, and it even has an indicator light to tell you when to clean the filter, which looks easy to do when I get around to it. All in all, no regrets, and I am very satisfied of the 2 months I got out of this product thus far.
Compact and Easy to Install and Control
By Bennett Prescott
from Wallingford, CT, United States
Bought this unit for my home office, so I can keep it cooler than the rest of the house. Have another, larger Frigidaire in the bedroom which we have been very happy with. This one certainly does the trick, cools the room quickly and keeps a nice steady temperature. Only complaints are that fan noise on High is enough that it's uncomfortable to have a phone conversation, but so far leaving the fan on low has been good enough. Also, energy saver mode is almost useless... it will let the room get much warmer than I like. Good for leaving it over a weekend so your room doesn't climb to 90degrees, but not useful for every day.
I love it!!!! great features, cools like crazy...

Keeps me cool
By Kevin Maxwell
from California, United States
Had some difficulty installing, but that was more because of my crummy metal window frame than the A/C. Easy to understand instructions helped a bunch. It works great and helped me keep cool this summer. A little noisy and the controller broke after a few months, but the unit itself is still working perfectly. The biggest upside is it has low power cost!!! It'll save your wallet!

Easy to Install
Installed Easily for a small room. A bit noisy in hi fan mode. Not sure how accurate the energy saver mode is. Seem to take too much time to take a reading on room temperature during very hot humid days. Room gets warm fast.
