What People Are Saying

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by works as expected the product lives up to my standards.features are good. noise level is tolerable considering there are 2 motors running,and rushing air does make noise July 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Price and Very Quiet After going through several makes and models of window AC units, I settled on this model for several reasons: #1 pick on Consumer Reports Ease of Installation VERY Quiet! Economical Ease of operation July 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Good product Great AC for the price! Works great and really cools off any room! Powerful unit! July 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for the price...so far Iv been an HVAC tech for about 5 years and have serviced and installed many window units (of various brands) and Mini Split units (mostly LG). After seeing the overall quality and performance of there Mini Split systems, I recently decided to buy this LG window unit for my master bedroom (250 sq. ft.) so I can avoid running the central system as often. It did a great job at keeping the room at 65 degrees on an 85 degree day (I like it cold), and with expected tripple digits on a regular basis this summer, im pretty convinced it wont have an issue maintaining 70-73 degrees. If it performs good in tripple digits, I will definatly be buying a larger LG window unit for the family room to cut down usage of the central system even more (or to add additional cooling while having company over on hot days) June 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cools, quiet, manual air-direction fins move hard I did some research on the internet before buying this. My primary concern was quiet operation, though this is a subjective factor. I live in NY, where the outside noise is already a problem, even during the night, so my perception of quiet might be a bit different than anyone else's. I was looking to replace an old Haier 8.000BTU unit, bought probably in 2003 - an already noisy and smelly one. The target room was a former master bedroom, with windows to the street, under the roof, with a store room and an improperly ventilated bathroom next to it. Now my kids are there, and I needed to remove the old dusty and bacteria filled unit, not clean it - my kids health is important. A review I saw indicated that this is a relatively quieter option than the other one I was looking at (8.000 BTU Frigidaire FFRE0833Q1). The Frigidaire option was better at Energy saving and had a remote with the thermostat in it, which according to the reviews should give the AC unit the real temperature in the room, not the one next to the AC. I did not care about the higher operation cost, as I have them covered by my company, just wanted to avoid all the previous AC noise, so opted for the LG. 1. The LG A/C unit arrived quickly and undamaged. 2. Heavy, but not as heavy as the old one - it was important, because I needed to drag it up to the 4th floor. 3. Installation had the following positive and negative sides in a big city: a) My old AC was connected to a network of pipes, since this is the front of a townhouse and the pipes were put in place so that the unit doesn't drip water over the porch/entrance. The new unit had the water hole in another place that the old AC - I basically had to pull the pipe out of the net and connect it, with a retainer, diverting the water drip to the corner of the building. This (existing pipes/connections) may not be a problem for the 99,9% of the people, though. b) the window was already prepped for the old AC, and I did not have to install the retainer (recommended to be installed outside, right behind the window to provide additional support/retention for the unit). 4. the new AC was smaller than the old Haier - besides being a positive factor as such, it created two problems: a) the curtains supplied with the LG did not fit the window - too short b) the old AC had two acrylic sheets on the sides as windows covers - the fact that the new AC was smaller meant I had to cut the sheets to the news size (they were too tall, and already not wide enough for the new AC). I did cut the acrylic window covers and readjusted their seating and they fit barely, but they did. These covers were fastened with screws into the window pane frame, which mean re-drilling some holes in the acrylic window covers. A sealant needs to be applied afterwards anyway. Didn't do that yet, had not time to go to the Homedepot, but the covers are tight enough and I will seal the remaining holes asap. 5. All in all it took me and my colleague about 3 hours to install it due to the need to adjust/ cut and re-drill, etc/ the old window covers - we are not handymen, just tried (as it turned out) a first AC installation for both of us. 6. Operation - much quieter on slow speed fan than the old grumpy unit. Cools well, though it seems that it takes it more time to cool than the old unit on the same settings. 7. I took off one star One star because of the hard to move 4-way air-directing vents (with a manual close, and pull to vent operation). These are manual units that you have to turn on your own. Fine with me, since I bought this AC recently on BBuy on sale for $216, but turning them in the right direction was very difficult. The vertical vent is basically a unit made out of two united vents in the middle, through a plastic pin. The pin broke off. Not dramatic, as it does not affect their behavior in any way, but it seems the entire operation is more difficult than one would hope. So, essentially this was a choice between two units for me: more quiet vs more efficiency. In my noise conditions I went for the allegedly quieter LG, though unfortunately I can not compare it to the Frigidaire unit, at least for now. As for the real conclusion - I do no not actually rent, the company owns the townhouse - so I do not need a window unit to take with me wherever I move, just like many home owners in the US (I am not from US and move often around the world:). I would honestly prefer a split system I have back at my real home. In my country I could find a cheap simple Chinese split unit for a bit more than this LG price and it seems it is possible here, though I am not sure about their quality, but I guess its the same - don't hold me responsible for that assertion. Those split units are fantastic units - dead quiet if you chose it right, with rolling air went (you can keep it all down if that's more convenient or only up, or rolling), and all the possible functions one would want. Unfortunately I can not install such a unit in front of the building. Hence my choice for a window unit. June 10, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Noisy and not up to previous quality standards Unit cools OK but is noise level is much higher than previous year's model. Front panel small cracks in 2 places. Does have better filter removal system than older model and is slightly more energy efficient. When you turn on unit it defaults to energy saving mode so it does not remember your previous setting. I have 3 LG air conditioners but I would not buy this brand again. June 7, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Problems Clean air filter light never turns off no matter how clean you keep the removable air screen. Do not understand never had this kind of issue with any other A/C May 27, 2014

Hi runner33.
Your interest in the LG 8,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner Model LW8014ER is greatly appreciated. Thank you for contacting us with your question about the type of plug that it uses or similar models. The power cord of this unit is equipped with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which should be used with a standard 3-slot (grounding) wall power outlet to minimize the hazard of electric shock...IFV

Answer: 
I'm an experienced HVAC tech

I haven't seen anything saying the unit comes with a cover, not did the one I bought come with one. But yes the outdoor condenser coil can easily be damaged when hit with something or bumped into. If the rear of your unit protrudes into a high traffic area, such as a backyard or walkway, I would recommend making a guard out of expanded metal (available at most hardware stores), and secure it to the unit with short self tapping screws with washers, and you can run the unit with this guard in place. Be VERY careful that the screws do not hit any part of the copper tubing or coil, it will damage the unit by releasing all the refrigerant. If you just want to protect it from the elements while not in use, Then I recommend covering it with a tarp, or BBQ cover (or search for a cover online), and securing with a bungee cord or something, and always remember to remove the cover before using the unit, if unit runs with cover on, it will restrict airflow over the condenser coil and damage the unit.

After cleaning the filter, hold down the temp Up and temp Down buttons at the same time to clear the light. This has to be done at the units control panel, not the remote.

Answer: 
After cleaning the filter, press the TEMP ^ and v together to deactivate the “Clean Filter” indicator light. This reset must be done from the control panel on the device. Using the remote control buttons will not resolve the matter. If this does not correct the situation, 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....

Answer: 
Hi, I have this same unit and installed it in a standard side-to-side horizontal sliding window. I literally threw the included install kit away since its made for up-and-down vertical sliding windows. I realize this isn't the case with you, but what I did to fill in the huge open space above the unit may be a good idea for you situation. What I did is I cut a piece of 3/4" thick white laminated wood to fit in the space, and left myself a little extra room around the edges so I could use 3/4" wide by 1/2" thick self stick foam weather stripping around the edges of the wood to create a good seal. I would imagine you could use a similar design to fill any open space, of any size, in any window. I have included pictures of the finished install, hopefully it will steer you in the right direction. Just make sure you have the AC unit secured in place. You may also want to try this using foam panels (available at most hardware stores) in place of the wood. Wont look as clean and nice as wood, nor will it last in the sun as long, or be as secure against break ins... but likely easier and cheaper.

We installed the unit two days ago. the temperature on the unit agrees with the room thermomature. However, the humidity level is rather high, and I noticed this morning there is no "dripping" outside. Please advise. Thanks.

We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner and its operation. The lack of drainage moisture is not necessarily indicative of a problem. If the unit is cooling and blowing cold air properly, then there is likely no problem with the device.
