How to Choose a Room Air Conditioner Compared to large capacity central units, room air conditioners have several advantages. The initial cost of a room air conditioning unit is significantly lower than the cost of central air. Because room air conditioners are designed for cooling small spaces, operating costs are reduced. And, room air conditioners can provide personalized temperature and humidity controls that central systems cannot. Calculating Cooling Capacity Cooling capacity is the critical factor in properly selecting a room air conditioner. Cooling capacity is measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs) and typical models will range in capacity from 5,000 BTUs to 28,500 BTUs. Choosing an undersized unit will overwork the unit and it will not cool properly. Choosing an oversized unit will cost more to buy and operate and it will not dehumidify properly. We can help you to calculate capacity. Be prepared to provide specific information on: Room Dimensions A simple floor plan to show the location of doors and north-facing windows The number of people it will serve Sources of heat such as lamps, TV and appliances An explanation of what's above the intended room Your insulation provisions Cooling Capacity by Room Size Measure the length and width of the area to be cooled.

No Sleeping here Don't I repeat don't get this air conditioner. I know people think hey its an AC its suppose to be loud, but no. This item is beyond loud. The second we turned it on I was like are you kidding me. Don't expect to get much sleep. We have to blast our TV just to hear it. Also it rattles every now and again. I checked the frame and everything seems fine. Since we already opened the box we weren't able to return it to our local PC Richards. I always put this AC on 74 degrees energy mode because I cannot bear to hear it the whole night. It drives me nuts every day I pray that my BF gets a new one but he wouldn't since it was a hassle to get in the window in the first place. I suggest you do your home work on ACs before buying as of now Frigidaire acs seem to be the loudest. OH how I wish I would have gotten a GE....more info
I Expected Better From Frigidaire I read two reviews for this air conditioner that complained about noise. I purchased the next, newer model, the FAC105P1A, and was hoping the noise problem was fixed, but it wasn't. Not only was it loud in the room where I installed it, but it was also loud in the room next to it and on the floor above. Needless to say I returned it. It wasn't just the noise of the cool air being blown--it had a whining, humming noise that drove us crazy. Stay away from Frigedaire.
Busted. The packaging was inadequate for protecting the product during shipping:
1) the front cover was broken in three places,
2) the condenser cooling coil was mashed in several large areas,
3) the air-direction louvers were a joke...
Other than these items, it did perform fairly well, after some repair and modifications....more info
Accaptable but not great It came with a large dent in a side panel which collapsed the louveres. There were also dented blades in the condenser back.
Although it is reasonably quite in the installed room every other place in my house resonates with a loud hum. Otherwise it workes fine for the way I use it....more info
