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.

Easy install

AC dude 9/9/2021

I bought this a month ago to replace the same one only 4 year old. Bad cage design as debris build up under freon line causing it to rust and leak. Virtually no drainage in bottom of pan

Gteat Unit

Halharbi 9/1/2021

I bought this to replace the same model unit that just went out. It was almost 5 years old. I use it basically to cool my whole house. It is installed in the front room and using my central heater as a whole house fan it does a great job. Easily keeps my house cool in the 80-90 weather we have been having. Highly recommend it.

Not happy AC but not with the remote

number6 8/30/2021

The remote stopped working a few days after it was installed in the wall above a window. Customer service says the remote is an accessory and the can't do anything. They could not even find it listed in parts. Have to step on a stool to work controls because the AC is high. You can only see controls and lights from a foot away. Have to buy a smaller AC for another room and use the remote on both. Still happy with the brand.

Keeps things cool

ray3333 7/11/2021

I bought this, a week ago, to replace a Frigidaire unit that was similar. It™€™s going great, puts out enough cooling to keep us happy, even if it is triple digits outside! I would of given it 5 stars, in time it should earn it.

Clean, Sleek Design

Spot13 7/7/2021

Purchased this model after our 30 year old Sears window A/C died. Had to have it professionally installed as it is rather heavy but it was money well spent. So far, so good. Cools our entire downstairs area without issue. Clean, modern design. Recommended

Only 18000 That Fit My Window!

EddieJr 7/5/2021

I have small windows and this is the only 18,000btu 220v unit that I found that would fit. This is my fourth Frigidaire window unit, I have two others installed for a total of 3. I installed 3 units about 15 years ago (all 110volt), and they are still working. This new unit is replacing the 15,000btu 110v unit because I needed a little more cooling. This new unit is a little quieter than the other however they normally are when they are new. This 18000 220v unit is the exact same physical dimensions as my old 15000 110v. I still don™€™t like the adjustable air louver because it doesn™€™t do a very good job and should be definitely designed better. The biggest problem that I have had in the past is that the fan discharge area is covered with a white styrofoam material and over time this area gets black and moldy and is very hard to get to in order to clean especially with the non-slide out chassis models. This unit is still made this way. On the good side, so far it looks like this bigger unit, 220v, is using about the same amount of electricity while it is doing a much much better job cooling my room than the smaller 110v unit. I am satisfied with this.

Buffalo Guy 7/1/2021

This AC is nicely designed and performs as specified. Good controls and cooling options. No complaints, but have only had it operating for a few weeks. It' been working very reliably during some record hot weather.

Cabin girl 6/26/2021

I bought it 3 Weeks ago,just in time for the heat wave! It slipped into the existing wall mount so didn™€™t have to deal with changing that out. What a deal! Cools the house down great. When I just want fresh air I can open the vent and use air only. Love it!

Bub Himes 6/15/2021

Bought this size due to it fitting my newly installed windows. Had a 22,000btu Unit so wasn't sure it would cool my 1st floor with the same efficiency being smaller. Was I ever wrong, it works great and is half as loud as the old Unit. I love this product!!!!!!!!!!
