What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works GREAT!!! This Bad Boy works incredibly well. It will raise your electric bill though. But for what it accomplishes in our home (Bedroom) it works very well. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mobile air conditioner. Keeps my rooms cool without putting it on the highest settings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small Space/Reliable/Adequate It cools off a small room, but unfortunately, just a small room and it's louder than I'd like. BUT, compared to having no a/c, the low cost, easy to set up, plus it's convenience when you don't have the right size window, so it's not a waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I purchased at the beginning of summer here in Michigan. I purchased the higher BTU model even though I was told I did not need it but I followed the recommendation of LG. I have been comfortable at all times. It cools my entire 500 sq foot apartment which is on the top floor of my building and it is much warmer at the top. I like that you can set it on energy saver and the fan does not run all the time so that works good in the fall when I still need some a.c. So far I am very happy with it. Very easy set up, quality construction and good instructions. Easy to take care of.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't realize so Loud Needed a air conditioner for the couple of summer weeks that it gets really hot here in Western Washington. Wasn't sure how loud it would be but decided I could live with a little noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Better than Expected The air conditioner has worked amazing since I purchased it. Once my house cooled off, I have even had to shut it off at times because it keeps my house nice and cool. I love being able to control all the functions through the remote. It is well worth the money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unfortunately dissapointing We purchased this LG in-home air conditioner at the beginning of summer, however in approx. 3 months it was malfunctioning. The condensate pan was overflowing on to our floors while the electronic/digital display was not shutting the device down automatically as the directions indicated it should. The cord was surprisingly short, and the exhaust interface with the window was cumbersome and took up a great deal of space in the room. Overall a disappointment. It is scheduled for a repair with our local LG certified repair representative this next week.

I am near some wildfires right now is it safe to operate my AC LP1215GXR with all the ash in the air?

Asked by: Fidel10304
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. We would not have any recommendation on whether to continue or stop use due to the extend of the ash being unclear. We would suggest to use your best judgment on continuing use of the A/C or not.
