What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I have only owned this air-conditioner for a week but it seems to be working great. It definitely pulls the humidity out of the air very well. The thermostat function seems to be working very well on energy saver mode. I can't yet speak for the Longevity of the unit but so far it is working well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This AC is perfect for my home I bought 2 of these 15000 BTU AC 's they cool my rooms within 30 min. And one of the main reasons I bought these AC's is they are a 110 outlet, I didn't have to pay a electrician to change it to a 220 outlet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Electrical controls worked fine for 4 months. Then the compressor would only shut off if you unplugged it from the wall receptacle. Replaced control board. 9 months later having the same problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! First impression Had it for a day now. Easy to install, package has everything you will need except tools. First of all I live in South Texas. It's hot and humid most of the time. I live in a tiny home of about 700sq ft. Plugged this thing in set it to 72 economy setting and within 15 minutes it was cool comfortable and the A.C. Was turning off. Its new so I don't have anything to say about if it will last, but LG has not ever let me down on their product. If the start is any sign this going to last a long time. Wonderful product so far very happy with it and the price to, also added 3 years next warranty at purchase. I would recommend for anyone with 800 or less sq ft to cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep Cool Bought as a upgrade from our 8000BTU to 15000BTU. Larger and 200% QUIETER amassing. Cools 5000CF room from 88F to 70F in about 20Min and maintains at low fan speed no problem outside temp 90F. Installed it in wall instead of window. The main unit come out of the enclosed frame making it so much easier to mount and secure, then just slide it in and plug it in and your all set. Being a contractor may have helped but anyone can do this install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kudos to the installation design! I haven't used this unit enough yet to say whether it is extraordinary or not. But the installation was so well thought out that it deserves mention. Thanks for making it so easy!

is this unit made for permanent installation in a window or is it considered some thing that can be removed at the end of the cooling season

Asked by: stano
Keeping the ENERGY STAR® LG 15000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW1516ER permanently installed in your window or removing it seasonally is left to your discretion. If you prefer leaving it in permanently, you may want to get a cover for it to prevent dust and debris from getting into the unit...^IFV

Why does LG not sell a cover fro their A/C units? This would be a good marketing tool to sell an insulated cover to protect the units from winter weather where owners do not use the a/c all year long,, as in the NW untied states, MT OR could mfg

Asked by: Kim Barnes

When I turn unit off, compressor still is on but fan is off, is this normal?

Asked by: Dave C
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. When the power is deactivated on this model, the fan and compressor should both become inactive. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot this matter.

Why is the light red when I have it on energy saver instead of green?  It used to have a green light next to it but it is now showing red. 

Asked by: Billy B
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this air conditioner. This red indicator light is typically related to the CLEAN FILTER alert. The ‘Clean Filter’ LED will light up to notify you that your filter needs to be cleaned. After cleaning the filter, press “Temp ^” and “Temp v” buttons together to turn off ‘Clean Filter’ light. The filter reset must be done from unit control panel. The buttons on the remote control will not perform in this fashion.

Is unit suppose to weep/drip water?  It is not it is making gurgling sounds. 

Asked by: Mouse7
The dripping of water from the back of the cabinet will generally occur when the humidity level is elevated. If the unit is currently blowing cold air, then whether or not water drains should be irrelevant.
