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.

Easy to Install

Comments about Frigidaire 5,000 BTU 12.2 EER 115V Window Air Conditioner:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It's running very well. I love the remote control feature and being able to control temperatures and time to run.

I brought this unit during a heat wave with temperatures in the mid-nineties. It took about two hours to cool the room down but after that, I had to raise the temperature on the digital thermostat to 75 degrees because I became cold! I most like the digital thermostat feature that maintains my desired room temperature. I also like this unit beacause it is QUIET!
Replaced existing unit
from Tampa, FL, United States
Needed similar sized system that would fit where the old unit was installed. Fit right in and works great!
This A/C unit works great. Perfect for a bedroom! The only thing that could make it better is improved energy saver mode. The temp climbs 7-8 degrees above setting before compressor kicks back on. But unit works great in cool mode. Get energy saver mode within 3-5 degrees and it would be 5 star.
Good for the price
Good for the price. Does a good job keeping my room at a comfortable temperature and isn't too noisy. I do think the energy saver mode is a bit too conservative and isn't very effective, so I end up using the regular cool mode more than I expected to.
