What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Air Conditioner Bought this air conditioner to replace a 14 year old unit that died. Has all the features I need, but especially like the Dehumidifier feature on this model as Florida summers are very humid. Would recommend this unit to someone who is in need of a new air conditioner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping Cool in TN This window unit not only keeps the kitchen it's installed in cool, it cools down the adjoining dining room/office and living room very well (our floor plan is open so air circulates freely from room to room). I can set it on 'power save' or just use the 3 speed fan when I'm the only one home - that's a real money saver! It's a lot quieter than the portable unit we used last year and takes up no floor space, which I love. My husband and I installed it ourselves in a window that has a sill made in the late 1800s and the process was amazingly smooth. We are very satisfied customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of use and features make it a good ac unit. The energy Saving Mode is what really impressed me. I am all about saving energy and the LG 18000 btu ac unit does just that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quiet and fits my purpose This unit cools down very quickly upon turning it on. It removes quite a great deal of moisture from the house but the drain plug is very short so that the unit drips all over the place close to the house. I will try to attach an extension hose to send the water out into flower bed and try to keep it away from my house and deck. It is a very quiet machine when running. I like the powersave option. I would purchase another unit in the future if needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great wall unit for the price My central air condition broke last summer and I live in a mobile home. When summer hits and its 100 degrees plus living in a tin can really is miserable. Thank goodness for LG and their wall air conditioners I was able to live inside my home and not melt.

My wall is 6inches wide and would not block any of the vents so why couldn't I install this unit in the wall?

Asked by: pally
We appreciate your interest and concern regarding this air conditioner. This particular 18,000 BTU air conditioner was designed specifically for a window installation. When a device is installed in a manner contrary to that for which it was designed, we cannot guarantee proper operation from the device. Such improper operations can lead to damage to the air conditioner which would not be covered under the manufacturer’s warranty, as the unit is not being used in the manner for which it was designed.

Does this AC breath air from the back or the sides

I know this unit is meant for window installation. But I would like to put it in the wall. I want to make sure I don't block anything that would overheat the unit.
Asked by: jaindesi
You are right, because of the way window ACs are vented (from the sides) they cannot be installed through the wall.

what is the lowest temperature that your air conditioner will go

I am completely insulating a 7x14 trailer and I want to keep it at 58 degrease. can this be done? if so, which air conditioner would you recommend. If not, what is the lowest temp that I could safely achieve. Thanks, Sam.
Asked by: sam37
THE (LW1812ERS) WOULD DO THE JOB OF KEEPING THAT 7X14 TRAILER AT THE TEMPERATURE OF 58o. THIS UNIT GOES DOWN TO 60o, AFTER 8 HOUR YOU SHOULD BE GETTING CLOSE TO YOUR 58o IF NOT SOONER.

What does the plug look like?

Window AC unit says 208V/230V. There's an electrical outlet by the window that has 2 parallel slits, one with a "T," and opposite the slits is a half oval. Will the plug for this AC unit fit into that outlet?
Asked by: ACQuestion
WITH THAT DISCRIPTION OF THE WALL PLUG, AN ELECTRICIAN SHOULD DOUBLE CHECK THAT PLUG FOR THE CORRECT VOLTAGE, BEFORE PLUGGING THE A/C IN. SPIKES46

I have to mount this inside a warehouse for an office does it have a drain kit available

Asked by: kirby

If power is interrupted will the unit, when power resumes will the unit automatically resume?

Digital controls I see make me curious if user intervention would be required.
