What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great product; while it worked Let me start out by saying that the vast majority of my electronic devices are LG products and I am extremely happy and satisfied with both their quality and performance in the time I have owed them. However: I bought this product on 7/6/2015 and installed it on my sun room. It worked great until the heating element shorted out in early April 2016. It still gets cold at night were I live until the middle of May. LG took care of the problem fully under warranty, although it took over a month and two different contractors to diagnose and repair the unit. The first contractor was a total jerk, idiot and let me know he hated working on window units over and over again. He acted like he did not know the first thing about repairing the unit and made sure I knew this. He diagnosed the problem correctly, left and was suppose to contact me with a future date and time of repair. I never heard from him again even though I called him several times. I called LG customer support several times asking for "updates" on my warranty repair. Each time I was told I had to wait for the "contractor" to contact me. After several of these calls, I demanded for and received someone at LG that took care of my problem without excuses or telling me I have to wait. He contacted A&E Repair and they took care of my problem in about a weeks time and they were extremely friendly and competent. The unit, again, worked great until the middle of March 2017, when the HVAC system experienced catastrophic failure. Luckily, I had purchased a 5-year Home Depot Protection Plan for $100 for the unit and was able to use the e-card they provided me to fully replace my unit due to the fact there are not any contractors that work on window units in my area of the country the they are authorized to use. Thankfully, due to the Home Depot Protection Plan, I was only out $52.63 for the difference in the price of the 5-year Home Depot Protection Plan for a new window AC/Heating unit. Overall, the unit worked great when it was not in need of repair. I can't say that I can recommend this product to anyone due to the problems I experienced with the unit. That point is actually mute since this model has been discontinued. Thankfully, nobody else will have to deal with the hassle of purchasing one of these and experiencing the hassles that I have. Hopefully, LG has fixed the problems with this unit in the model that replaces it; the LW1216HR. I would not hold my breath though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Product! Easy to use, smart modern no-nonsense design! Works great! Will cool a large livikng room and adjacent dining room. Will also heat the immediate area in front of it and slowly heat the entire large area. Quiet operation, more quiet than the unit it replaces. Remote is simple and easy to operate, and it is worth whatever effort needed to provide the 240 Volt AC, 20 Amp power it requires. Well done! May order another one soon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great new feature is the thermostat control, i installed this unit 2 1/2 months ago, to replace a similar unit by LG (which lasted approximately 5 years) one major issue is once the unit reaches the desire temperature setting there is a rattle within the unit. very annoying sound

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price Perfect size -not this huge unit protruding from house. This unit was installed in the wall -extremely easy installation. Has a rattle when you place fan speed on 'hi' and overall operation is louder than expected but still more quite than the unit it replaced. Haven't tried the heater yet, will update if possible.
