6000 BTU 115-Volt Electronic Room Air Conditioner is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 626.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JamieO from So far so good I did a lot of research read a lot of reviews and I decided on this one because of the price and the availability. I had another one that didn't last two years was a different brand so I hesitated buying them again. I still own a Fedders window air-conditioner that is 20 years old and works perfectly but because of its age I didn't want to take a chance on it saying I've had enough in the middle of a heat wave. I'm willing to bet that any air-conditioner you purchase today will not still be working 20 years from now but this so far is a good one it's quiet and it's definitely cools.Rated 4 out of 5 by stereojha from A winner! Good and quiet! I bought 2 of these units for our second floor bedrooms because our central air system is just one zone. This means the first floor is comfortable while the second floor is not. This may be the best small window AC unit I've ever owned. Simple to install and VERY quiet. Much more so than my 8, 000 BTU Fr*gidar* unit. And uses less than 5 amps. My only complaint is that the remote is too small (as are most AC remotes) for ease of use - buttons and text. But it does have a magnet to attach it to the side of the unit which can be handy. A good, quiet unit for the money. Don't waste your money on the cheapo no-name 5, 000 BTU units. They are noisy and don't cool well or move very much air. Go GE! Rated 5 out of 5 by JFK from Definitely consider! In need of a bedroom air conditioner, I did what many of us do today - internet searching for top rated air conditioners. And admittedly this one only shows up on one consumer review that I've found. Nonetheless, I purchased this unit since it was most accessible, and I have nothing but five-star compliments. As for noise, yes, you can find decibel ratings for most other units on review sites; however decibels only measure the force of air movements, not frequencies such as high pitched sounds. Thus a unit with a low decibel high pitch is much more noticeable than a unit with higher decibels at low pitch. This unit, regardless of whatever decibel level it has, is most comforting since all "noise" is low frequency white noise. Terrific for sleeping and additionally there are no rattles when the compressor is energized. Finally the complaint with the temperature swings. Yes, I found that there is a few degree temperature swing with the Energy Saver mode on, and this is because the temperature gauge is right next to the cooling coils. I have a larger unit (Panasonic) which cools the first floor and to prevent this Energy Saver quirk, the unit's fan goes on every three minutes to bring room temperature air over the temperature gauge. Take my advice and just leave the setting on cool. You really will not absorb much more in cost since only the fan is running. Trust me. This is the best room air condition for the money and convenience! Stay cool with a good night's rest and enjoy the summer! Rated 4 out of 5 by Wireman from Cool during a heatwave! Easy to install and has been keeping my office area cool for the past week and a half during a very hot heat wave. One word of caution when installing: the gentleman at Home Depot told me to keep the unit as horizontal as possible because the coolant will quickly leave the condenser and it takes a while for it to flow back in. If you don't then you could damage/ruin the condenser. He said it would be best to not run for 4 to 6 hours after install to make sure the coolant equalizes properly. I did that and am having no problems. Rated 5 out of 5 by Vee from Awesome! We purchased this for our enclosed porch when gets very hot. It is small, light, and easy to install. When we turned it on, I was very happy and surprised at how quiet it is. We watch TV on the porch and a noisy A/C unit would make hearing the TV difficult. This A/C unit is by far quieter than the other 4 window units I currently own. I will buy a GE window unit in the future to replace any of my other units if they fail. Rated 4 out of 5 by Mark from Surprisingly Quiet I want two things in an A/C. Quiet (or at least consistent enough noise) to let me sleep, and if I enter 72 degrees I want the A/C to keep the room within 1 or 2 degrees of my desired temperature. This $179 A/C seems to do both. The decibel difference between when the compressor is on and off is subtle enough where I barely notice; no risk that it will wake me up (as did my last LG A/C that advertised itself as "Library Quiet") Remote control issues: The picture of the remote control online looks like it has an LCD screen, but it doesn't. It's just a sticker with GE logo. I was hoping that the thermostat was on the remote control, but that is not the case. Furthermore, the remote control doesn't even work. I haven't decided if I will take the A/C back or just live with it. Rated 5 out of 5 by flyboy76 from great compact ac Very easy to install 15 min. tops . I put this in a 12x18 bedroom .
