Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Unit works fine but window unit broken in box

Jack1984 10/3/2020

I bought this AC about a mont ago. The unit works as expected and was easy to setup; however, the plastic window kit included with the AC was broken in the box despite no apparent damage to the exterior of the box. I contacted Frigidaire after installing the unit (using tape and pressure from the window to keep the window kit together) but haven™€™t heard anything back from customer service in the past month. Overall very disappointed in Frigidaire™€™s customer service.

Cold enough

Gypsylady12 10/1/2020

Used for tent camping the beginning of September in Texas. It worked and it was nice to have AC in the Texas heat in my tent. Only problem was the water wasn™€™t coming out the hose attached. Need to do some research on this.

LP2020 9/29/2020

I love the look at this portable air conditioner. I live in a condo and due to the board not approving vertical windows I had to get a portable unit. I was worried how big and bulky it™€™d be. But it turned out better than I thought! The room cools down in just minutes! I highly suggest purchasing this unit if you need a portable unit!

Kellee_k 9/22/2020

We bought this air conditioner a few months ago and it is perfect! We were looking for one that was very quiet but also small and portable. This ended up being perfect for what we were looking for. Makes our bedroom cold quickly and it so quiet sometimes we forget that it™€™s on. Wonderful AC unit!

Cools the Master Bedroom

CoolerinPA 9/7/2020

Bought this to help bring the temp down in our master bedroom because our AC unit, though new, doesn't do a great job on our second floor. It does a good job to bring the temp down to about 68 or 69 degrees and the noise is no louder than a window unit or large room fan. Setup was pretty easy once we figured out the place to put the unit and hook up to the window for exhaust.The only downside to this unit so far is that it seems to make a weird clicking on/off noise when set to around 70-72 degrees like it's trying to turn on the pump/AC condenser for a bit of cold air but never quite gets there. It will do this several times in succession and then either full actuate or simply give up and go back to the blower mode. I don't know why this is and it's definitely annoying, but it's not consistent enough to be a real problem all the time.Overall, good unit and worth the cost for a cooler sleeping area during the hot summer nights.

Good machine, horrible exhaust vent setup

Hatchman 9/3/2020

The machine itself works great. However, be aware that it never shuts off. When it is not actively cooling the fan still runs. My big complaint with this product is the venting. The tube loosely sits in the connector in each end. So the weight of the tube (very heavy) tends to want to pull it out from the connectors, and it also leaks, just blowing the hot air right back into the room. I had to go to Lowe's and get some white duct tape to plug the leaks and keep the tube in the plastic connectors. Also, the flat plastic part that goes in the window was made for a cathedral window I think. I had to cut it several times (not easy, very hard plastic like Bakelite, you'll need a circular saw) before it would fit properly. Then due to some declarative edging inside the window fram the edges had a gap on each side so I had to plug them up with foam and superglue. So a very poor design for the window insert. Their Engineers need to revisit this for a redesign.

Cools really well but had some issues

Beebs89 8/31/2020

I do like the portable ac it cools the area very nicely. The issues are with the exhaust hose and window vent. The hose comes off the window attachment Very easily. The window vent itself is not made To fit modern replacement windows The design is all wrong. And the piece that connects the hose to the vent is angled to sharply so it on fits in one direction

Lifesaver

Old hot lady 8/24/2020

We travel north to a vacation home for Holidays and over the fourth it was hot, hot, hot. Plus there is no air conditioning, we do all the cooking, and as an aside I have endured only 19 years of hot flashes! Did I mention lifesaver?!

AdrienneB 8/22/2020

I live in the Pacific NW and don™€™t need AC very often however we do have a few hot days in the summer so I thought it™€™d be helpful. It does do a great job to cool down my living room but if you have a larger area to cool down or live in a much warmer climate, this probably won™€™t cut it. You™€™ll probably need something much more hard core.

A fine easy to setup portable air conditioner

moonspell 8/20/2020

I have used my new Frigidaire 8,000 BTU portable air conditioner for about a little over a month. It is quiet in operation. I find the cooling to be underwhelming for the one attic room I use it for but give it enough time it will bring the temperature down and it is only 8,000 BTU where a 10,000+ BTU would unit would do it faster but you save in utility costs.Overall I am quite pleased with how easy it was to setup. Installation was a breeze. The remote is adequate. Missing is a wifi app to remotely turn on and turn off unit like when I am on my way home from work. No eco mode is disappointing but not a deal breaker because the unit is already so very efficient.

It keeps me busy! Filter cleaning, draining, etc.

Claire5 8/8/2020

I decided I needed to try a portable AC this year, due to COVID-19's changes in my life. I was able to get this Portable Room Air Conditioner home and install it myself. It's adequate to cooling off my small apartment during the worst of the heat and humidity, but it takes a long time to get to that place. As our climate continues to change, and we experience longer stretches of hot and humid weather, I'd like to see AC technology catch up: quieter operation and using less energy. This unit is commendable for using less energy than the old window units, but the length of time and cooling ability isn't as efficient. All in all, this Portable Air Conditioner was available to serve me during a challenging time. Chronic health conditions make it a medical necessity to stay cool.

Simple and Easy to operate and effective cooling

Little g from Trumbu 7/19/2020

I actually am more impressed with the great customer service.. 10 months ago I had to buy this portable a/c because my wall unit broke. It was 97 degrees outside for a whole week and I couldn™€™t sleep. Bought this simple stand alone unit from Best Buy. Used it for about 2 weeks until my wall unit was fixed. Then I put it away thinking I™€™d never need it again until my wall unit broke AGAIN! Pulled it out of the basement and turned it on. Again it was 90 degrees out and no cold air ever came out of the unit. I waited and waited, no cold air. I called customer service, they gave me instructions for the return and 10 days later a brand new arrived. This one works well! I™€™ve been using it everyday for about 3 weeks now. So far, so good! I can sleep and the 400 square ft room is nice and cool.

Frigidaire name doesn™€™t disappoint!

Renée T K 7/2/2020

In 1918 Frigidaire was founded as the Guardian Frigerator Company. They developed the first self-contained refrigerator. Frigidaire has remained a trusted name in appliances. Just the name speaks cold. That is the reason why I purchased not only one, but two of these units. The first one I purchased was the 10,000 BTU model for my living room. It works so well that I decided to get a second unit which is the 8000 BTU that I am writing this review about. So in essence I am writing a review about both units. Both of these units work exceptionally well and keeps our living space nice and cool during our Colorado hot and dry summer. One of its great many features is a filter reset indicator light that comes on after 250 hours of use which is a reminder to clean the filters. I do this religiously about once a week. A great looking unit that runs nice and quiet. Personally I couldn™€™t be happier. I definitely recommend this product. Thank you Frigidaire!

We love our portable Frigidaire air conditioner! We set up our unit for our bedroom - it actually works so well at cooling, we find ourselves cozying up under the comforter to stay warm! This unit is nice and quiet too, so we're able to sleep comfortably while staying cool on hot, humid summer nights. We chose Frigidaire because it's the same brand as our refrigerator, so we felt confident in their ability to keep us cool. We chose right!
