Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good price. This was my first time buying a small window unit. My yard building has small windows and this was the best fit for me to use. I looked at alot but all were too wide. It is Quiet and it is nice to have the remote- very handy indeed! Makes my storage/workshop very comfortable-enough to be my man cave.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product. I have been using this AC in a big living room since one month and so far its working fine cools the area very well. The unit was a bit tricky to install specially while fixing the side extension, also the air blower does not have many options to control the air flow direction so you can only direct the air flow side wise you cannot direct it upwards but this shouldn't matter if one is not sitting directly in front of AC. You have a remote control with this unit and very easy to use. overall this product is good for the price (I purchased it from Home depot).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted I am constantly amazed by the efficiency of this airconditioner and the money it has saved me by lowering my electric bill. For the price I paid I got a real bargain. The remote control is a great bonus. When my old window AC unit quit working, I went to Home Depot looking for an easy-to-install and inexpensive replacement. I did not expect the high quality and durable design I got for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit We purchased this unit for our apartment. It just fits in the window we wanted to install it in, with the side panels. It cools down the room quickly, and the fan is powerful enough to reach into the bedroom. All in all, a great unit for the size and price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good AC but quite noisy My central AC went out this summer and I needed something fast. This unit totally suited the small bedroom I used it in but I have to say it's very loud and noisy, which really surprised me. Every time the compressor kicked in, it woke me up. It did cool the room quickly but if you need a quiet unit, this may not be the best one for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Area I purchased this air conditioner for an upstairs area that has been converted into a bedroom that did not have central air included. This product has been the perfect match for that room and my son loves the remote control that was included. He can adjust the temperature to fit the outside weather and the temperature in the house. Great purchase and I am very pleased with the product.

Fan speed

When I select fan speed it cycles through F1, F2 and F3 but nothing happens. Is F1 the highest or lowest and why doesn't anything happen?
Asked by: Anonymous
The higher the number on the rotary dial, the cooler the temperature. You will not be able to see a drastic change between each individual temperature. Please see the attached information. Design, features and specifications subject to change without notice.
