Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stopped cooling after 7 years This has been a good AC for the last seven years. Cleaned it periodically but all of a sudden it's not cooling. Freezes up on some of the coils and the rest are not cold. Thought about recharging with R134A refrigerant? Looking for suggestions???

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product did not meet my expectations My window unit only lasted 1 year and 6 mos. I would have thought it would have lasted longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best ac/heater combo I love this unit! The a/c was wonderful and easy to control and the switch over to heat was so easy. I have been using the heater for a few days now and is very efficient and keeps my home toasty warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Execllent airconditioner!! We now have 2 of them. They are quiet and last a long time. We replaced the one we had in the window we had bought 11 years ago. Hope this one last that long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great air conditioner! This was the third one of these that we have bought-if that gives any indication of how much we like this A/C! The first one we bought was for a storage building that needed to be climate controlled and this really did the job. Set on "Energy Saver" mode it kept everything cool thru out the East Texas summer and comfortable thru winter. When the electricity bill came in every month, it wasn't draining on the wallet. So when it came time for another one, we once again turned to LG.

This unit is designed for installation in standard double hung windows with actual opening widths from 22" to 36". The top and bottom window sash must open sufficiently to allow a clear vertical opening of 14" from the bottom of the upper sash to the window stool.

Heat on the LW7012HR

Hello, I purchased a LW7012HR unit. When the heater is running the air that is produced is not hot and hardly warm. It is my understanding that this is an electric heat until so I was expecting to feel air warmer than the surrounding area being produced from unit. The unit was just installed yesterday, can you tell me if this is normal operation for the unit? I had an electrician install the unit in the wall and the surrounding area is insulated. I have two small portable space heaters that can get the room to 60 degrees in 2 hours, but the wall unit running on its own for 4 hours did not bring up the temperature of the room. Also, I lifted the front screen and removed the filter to see the heating element. There is a black cable running to the middle of the heater area but it is difficult to tell if it is attached to anything, the picture seems to show that black cable running across the bottom of the heating unit.

Does this unit have to be installed in a window?

We are enclosing part of the garage into a playroom and we do not have a window or outside wall. Would need to put in new wall with backside in the garage.

Why does it take hours for the heater to reach set temperature?

I have a small room and never had a problem with the air conditioning function all summer when the outdoor temperature would reach in the 90's. Now when I try to heat the same room it will take a good six to seven hours to reach the desired temperature . Also I cannot get the energy saver option to work with the heater.
Asked by: Barbara725
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this product. The LW7012HR does not have the same heating capacity as it does cooling. While this is a 7,000 BTU air conditioner, it can only provide 3,850 BTU of heat. It is for this reason that the unit takes longer to heat the same space. The Energy Saver function interacts directly with the Compressor/Sealed system of the product. As this unit is designed with an electric heating element, which does not use the sealed system, there is no way for the Energy Saver mode to interact with the heat mode.

Is this unit UL or ETL Listed?

Asked by: gedstrom

Does the LG LW7012HR unit use electrical strips for heat or operate as a true heat pump?

The company I work for is looking to purchase two window units for a small brick building. We are looking at window units that can provide heat, specifically the LW7012HR model. Please provide us additional details and specifications on the operation of the air conditioner (if possible)
