The Frigidaire 8000 BTU cool only portable air conditioner quickly cools a 350 sq ft. room. This model features 3 fan speeds, electronic controls with remote, dehumidifies 2.5 pints per hour and offers a programmable 24-hour on/off timer. Other features include a Space Wise(r) portable design, sleep mode, effortless restart and antibacterial filter.
This is very easy to set-up and exceptionally functional portable room air conditioner. Over the years we have replaced each of our window air conditioners with portable a/c's. We find this Frigidaire model to be very manageable and dealing with the company's Customer Service involving a small unrelated operational matter very accomodating. The unit operates as described and cools an otherwise hot spot in our home. We highly recommend this unit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I just installed this unit. I was disappointed with the window kit. It seemed to only be set up for windows that slide open on the left side. The directions were unclear on this, and the pictures were not helpful at all. The hose does not fit securely to the window kit. With a few modifications I was able to get it to work. The unit itself seems to work great. Not much need for cooling at this point, so I look forward to that feature this Summer. For now I will enjoy the dehumidifying function.

Hi, Hot Sleeper! Thank you for sharing your experience! We're sorry to hear that you had trouble with installation; the window kit should fit any horizontal or vertical window of the appropriate size. We hope it continues to work well for your home in the warmer months! Best, Ashton
I bought this air conditioner before the heat set in last summer. It made my life so much better! The summer before the heat had seemed intolerable. This air conditioner made it possible to work, entertain, and sleep. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Have used this all summer for my kids rooms. This would cool down the room in about an hour. After a few hours you the room was nice and cool. The only downside to this is that the size of your window matters in the installation. If you have a smaller window you will need to trim down the window panel. There are no tools that will help you with this so make sure you are prepared with tools to cut. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
