What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from French Door Refrigerator We bought our fridge from Best Buy four years ago, it has a ten year warranty on the Compressor that has now gone bad. Of the three RG electricians recommended by RG, two did not fix compressors and the third had such a backlog of work, he would not be able to come out for 4/6 weeks. We have called the number given and had no response and no help. It has been well over a week. I had hoped that they would have been much more helpful, either sending someone to fix it or replace. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does a wonderful job. I have asthma and live in an area of the country that can be quite humid (not Florida) and hot in the summer. I rely on the air conditioning to help me breath by removing the humidity from the air inside and depositing it outside. This LG does that very well on low without needing to constantly cycle. For the first time this summer I didn't feel the need to grab my rescue inhaler. Thank you so much.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Noise !! Happy with a new cold blowing A/C, however, disappointed with the noise of the unit especially when the compressor activates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very pleased with the unit, it actually cools a larger area than I expected, which is great! My only issue, and it isn't with you, is it is noisey, but that is because my husband thinks he is smarter than the manufactors, and decided all the screws were not necessary! So there is a vibrating noise. But that's my problem, not yours. Would I buy another one? Absolutely, I'd just get some one else to install it, lol.

does this unit have to go in a window? can it go in a wall?

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
