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.

Just okay

Radiate 6/25/2022

I™€™d read in some reviews that this AC doesn™€™t get very cool and I was hoping that they were wrong, but I unfortunately agree. My room is about 9x10, and it takes so long for it to cool down even a degree or two, even when it™€™s not that hot. The air coming out doesn™€™t even feel that cool which is disappointing. I wouldn™€™t really recommend it and kind of wish I™€™d spent more to get something better. I have a very old Frigidaire that works great, but as they say, they don™€™t make things like they used to.

Love this AC unit. Second purchase, my first one was in a house fire. Sorry to say though even though I had the Xtra insurance on it. Still did not cover it. Was disappointed on that.

Molatech 6/9/2022

I couldn't have asked for more. Works well in a fairly large bedroom. Quiet operation across all fan speeds. The remote and remote sensing work great as well as the electronic controls and something I could only find those features on higher priced units. And the energy efficiency is fantastic. I can definitely recommend this product.

Minddetergent 5/29/2022

Coming from central AC, the features are wonderful for maintaining a comfort level in areas that matter most. A little louder than expected, but the energy savings, eco mode and remote a well worth it. I use similar models throughout the home.

5000 BTU AC

Happiest Mom 9/17/2021

This small Frigidaire AC has worked perfect for my daughter's small apt. in Boston. I actually took a picture of this AC when we went to preview the apt. The tenant in the apt. had the same AC and it was a cool 69 degrees inside on a hot 94 degree Boston day....that's when I knew this would be a perfect purchase for my daughter. She moved in on Aug, 20th and the AC has worked out perfectly. Since it only weights 43 lbs. she will be able to take it out of the window herself when the time comes.

MCSythera 8/21/2021

Very easy to install and secure. Great for extreme cooling of 100-200 sqft rooms or a few degrees off of larger rooms. Placing the remote in the furthest part of the room from the AC is the best way to get the best results.

Fairly easy install considering my aluminum frame and stone sill. Works as expected. The remote sensing is a nice feature to ensure the opposite side of the room is the desired setpoint. Also, seems to use less electricity than the old model I replaced.

Keepin' Cool!

thommy24 7/21/2021

I bought this for my children's shared bedroom. They are young and tend to wake up with the slightest sounds. Thankfully, this air conditioner is relatively quiet and doesn't seem to startle them awake. It keeps their room cool and comfortable and is very easy to use; I especially like that I can use the remote to turn it off from my own room in the middle of the night if needed (our room is on the opposite side of a short hallway). My husband didn't complain about installation, so I'm going to say that it was easy to install as well. All around, we are very pleased with the purchase!

Stopped working in less than a year

Oscar22 7/21/2021

I Will not buy Frigidaire again. In less than a year this thing started freezing over and stopped cooling. It must be a common problem on this brand, since I had a dehumidifier that did the same. They replaced the dehumidifier, but this time I was not able to get thru on the phone with them and I needed the ac, so I bought another brand. I loss my $185, but will never happen again since I will never buy this brand again. Stay away.

STL530 7/10/2021

I bought this model to cool my office, which is 9' X 14" and on the top floor of our house. It cools off the space in minutes running at the lowest fan speed. The remote control is easy to use and displays the room temperature, which is a great and helpful feature. The noise level is average and fine for me. What I like the most is how compact and lightweight this unit is. It's also attractive. I'm very happy with my purchase.

We just got our second one warrantee replacement. The first one quit producing cold air after 11 months.
