What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job, beware if you dont clean it yearly After 3 1/2 years the heating coil rusted out and it had mold all over the blower and the coils.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best A/C Yet! This a/c unit is the best one we've had yet. Surprisingly quiet for the 18,000 BTU's power. Keeps a small condo (600 sq ft) comfortably cool even in Florida summer heat. Much superior to the two other a/c units we've had before this one. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Possitivly the best This unit was bought after the many reviews that I read. This unit is really quite, not the window shakers that you hear about. We put the unit on 76 degrees and it cools the whole house very comfortably in the hot Florida weather that we are experiencing this year. Installation was easy. This unit does the job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turned out to be a work horse! I am building my art studio in the deep south of Alabama. It is over 400 sq.ft. with 10ft wall-ceiling. I have two french doors (with blinds) in front where the morning and afternoon sun directly hit. There is no insulation on that wall nor dry wall as of yet; ceiling is not insulated either. One side wall is attached to the house and the other is insulated where I installed a 4ft.H x 31/2ft W window. The AC was installed in this window which is towards the front of building and only 2ft above the floor. I still have construction going on and an ATV blocking its air flow, BUT even with all this against it working properly it still got my studio down to 74 degrees (Fahrenheit). Hardly a sound...in fact I have to check to see if its on.

When running the heat should the little stick you push in and out for vent. What position should it be in when I'm running the heat? Close, fresh air, or vent? 

Asked by: Ward Man 2
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. When using the HEAT function, it is suggested to have the Fresh Air stick in the CLOSED (IN) position to prevent cold air access.

when I turn the heat on it will not let me put it on energy saver how do I do that,

Asked by: TINAmayfield00117
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. The Energy Saver mode is designed to regulate the fan along with the compressor system. As the heater mode does not utilize the compressor, such regulation is not available. As such, it is not possible to activate the Energy Saver mode with the HEAT function.

with unit on thermostat set when heat is used the unit comes on and turns off after a minute or two .Room not warmed Just before heat stops colds air comes out then unit shuts off

Asked by: WBdr
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. The heating element of this machine has been designed to provide supplemental heat only, and cannot produce as much heating power as it does cooling power. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional information in this matter.

My a/c is not cooling stuck between warm and cold

Asked by: Kathy 64
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. Check the coils to ensure they are clean and clear, and that the filter is clean. Also check that the coils are not frozen, and blocking the air flow. If this is all good, and the temperature is set low, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

Is there a way to turn on energy saver for AC without the remote control? I don't have the remote and there is no button specifically for the energy saver, only the timer button which sits above it. 

Asked by: bren3
On the control panel of the LG 18,000 BTU Heat/Cool Window Air Conditioner with Remote, Model # LW1813HR is a Timer/Energy Saver button, just press that until the indicator light for Energy Saver mode lights up...^IFV

What is the "fresh air vent?" My unit will blow heat when I turn on the heating element, but then blow cool air. It goes back and forth from blowing heat to blowing cool. I don't like waking up to cool air in the morning when it's already cold outside.

Asked by: Peoples
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. The FRESH AIR VENT lever is a plastic stick which should stick through the upper vent grille on the front of the device. When this lever is pulled OUT, the Fresh Air Vent is OPEN; when pushed IN, the Vent is CLOSED.
