What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I bought this unit in June knowing it would soon be above 100 degrees. Set the unit to 72 on energy saver and it has worked great! It was heavy and we needed two people to lift it into our window but it is well worth it. It cycles on and off quite a bit but I'm assuming that's due to the temperature being 95 or above. We had no air conditioning in our home we put this in and set a fan to direct the air some and it's been a life saver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Easy to use!! Love it!!! I bought this unit in June for an upstairs oversize bedroom and it goes well above my expectations. It actually cools the whole upstairs which is just over 1000 Sq ft.

Asked by: John M Jr
The ENERGY STAR® LG 18000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW1816ER requires either a standard single-hung or double-hung window for proper installation. It is designed for installation in standard single-hung/double-hung windows with actual opening widths from 29" to 41". The top and bottom window sashes must open sufficiently to allow a clear vertical opening of 19" from the bottom of the upper sash to the window stool. The louvers on the sides of the cabinet cannot be obstructed or covered in any way and installations including wall sleeves, holes in walls or any other type of installation are not recommended...^IFV
