What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful machine ! Very quite and very efficient. On the cool setting, the air comes out nice and cold. It's perfect for our 2 person office with 6 heat generating computers. If you are thinking about buying it: do it. You won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product We needed a back-up AC because our whole house AC stopped working. We are replacing it. This one works fantastic! It cools most of the house. The air is very cold. I like this one, because it checks the temperature and kicks on and off when needed. It is perfect for our needs. If we didn't have it, we'd suffocate, as it has been in the 80's and 90's here in AZ. Works perfectly. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Quiet too! I purchased this unit to replace anot old Sears a/c. I chose this because vital is rated for Energy Star. I am delighted with it! So much quieter than the old one...can hear the TV. Don't panic if it doesn't seem to be cooling at first...within a day or so it got up to speed. I am leaving it in Energy Saver mode. It is keeping my studio apartment cool...and more importantly it keeps the humidity level at 44%....a real feat as I live in Florida (it's 84 outside and 65% humidity today).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LG 12000BTU window airconditioner I've bought this unit about 3 weeks ago at Home Depot. I like the unit, but it does have faults. At startup and for quite some time the fan rattles. It's fan is noisy and annoying until it planes off. We can't find any reason for this. The unit does do a great job cooling. There isn't hardly any difference in the fan speeds, which is disappointing as well. I rate it's functionality overall as a 5 out of 10 because of the excessive noise and disappointing fan speeds. I bought this LG as I had owned them prior and liked the LG over the others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The slide out chassis was what sold me on it I bought the item in November. I haven't installed it yet, I actually wanted to have it for next summer and I wasn't sure it would still be available then. It was a great price and the slide in chassis was a bonus. It arrived very fast and I was very pleased with the delivery person.

can the unit be installed in a wall

Asked by: bradon
The ENERGY STAR® LG 12000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW1216ER is a Winonditioner and as such, it requires a standard single-hung or double-hung window for proper installation. The outside of the cabinet must extend outward for at least 12" and there should be no obstacles, such as a fence or wall within 20" from the back of the cabinet because it will prevent heat radiation from the condenser. Restriction of outside air will greatly reduce the cooling efficiency of the air conditioner. Non-window installations, including using wall sleeves, holes in walls or other types of installation are not recommended...^IFV

Should I pull the plug in the back of the LG LW1216ER airconditioner or leave it alone?

Asked by: Robert John Miller
We appreciate your interest in this Air Conditioner and its components. While it is certainly acceptable to remove the drain plug from the back of the A/C cabinet, doing so can potentially reduce the operational efficiency of the device.

We are looking for a back fin protector to protect the back

Asked by: Leticia
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. There is no back grate for the air conditioner, unless it is installed from the factory. There may be an after-market covering, but we would have no information available regarding such a device.
