Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Exactly what I wanted

Eric Sh 8/31/2021

I was looking for an affordable air conditioner that would cool my bedroom, and this is pretty much perfect. Good price, not very loud, and does the job well. I'd definitely recommend it.

Arrived Damaged

Nunchsky 8/29/2021

After purchasing two (2) of the exact A/C's Units 3 years ago (same model) one of the two units started to blow "hot air" only, with no compressor engaging. After a few minutes of troubleshooting and not having the proper tools or replacement parts , I decide to purchase another unit "like for like". Please see pictures of unit arriving damaged. New unit appears to be working but based on the damage, my concern is that there is internal damage to parts.

Absolute GARBAGE, Doesn't cool, customer service is terrible

kenzie1440 8/22/2021

I bought this piece of junk 10 days ago, took me a while to set it up, when I did it literally worked as a fan, does not blow cool air, in fact makes my tiny bachelor apartment even hotter than it was before. Tried calling customer service 50 times, and have been hung up on by the robot each time. Worst experience, DO NOT BUY.

The weight of the unit is manageable. It fit well into the double hung window using the supplied expandable side panels. It cools the small room quickly when the temperature control is set to maximum cool. The level of noise is not too loud.

Birthday gift from my Wife.

Work_Shop 8/9/2021

I built a 12x20 workshop and put in insulation and drywall, and a small window in the rear. This unit cools the shop and does not make a lot of noise. I like the simple controls.I've been using it for three months, no issues at all.

Purrs like a kitten

cbg2 8/9/2021

We had a similar Frigidaire air conditioner which had lasted us 11 years. When it became apparent that its time had come, what else could we do but go out and purchase another 5000 btu air conditioner? And we are now both as happy as a clam!

Works well, no frills, affordable

SethD 8/7/2021

This model was recommended by New York Magazine as "best (low priced) window air conditioner" in 2021. It can turn a 150 square foot bedroom into a refrigerator at maximum settings. Old school design, with no frills, so hopefully it will last for a while like older appliances tended to do.

Great little air conditioner

Pan2b 8/7/2021

I™€™ve had this air conditioner for about a month now. So far so good. I bought it because it™€™s small enough to fit in my kitchen window. I have an old house with the old style rope windows. I had to remove the shade brackets (above the rope wheel) to get the window to go up high enough, even with this smaller air conditioner. That™€™s because I have storm windows that are more than an inch higher than the main window base. This air conditioner fit perfectly. I just had to add wood underneath to make up the height difference. And it worked out great that it™€™s a Frigidaire! I have a 6000 BTU Frigidaire air conditioner in my bedroom, which I™€™ve been using for several years, that I love. And now I have this 5000 BTU one in my kitchen. Between the two of them my 1,200 square foot house is staying much cooler! And that is really a blessing with this hot weather we™€™ve been having in the Pacific Northwest! I turn them on and off manually during the day...and off at night. And also use fans. But they can also be set to maintain a comfortable temperature, and go on and off automatically. It was a great buy, especially for the price. And the lighter weight made it easier to lift and install!

Needed a small ac for a guest room. Saw this on line and took a chance, sight unseen, It is an excellent unit at a good price. The installation was easy and fit my window perfectly. It cools very well at all levels and is very quiet. Just purchased a second on when I saw it on sale !

Great little AC unit

Darcor58 8/6/2021

Needed this in a hurry to replace one in our mother-in-law's bedroom during a heat wave last month. The town we live was sold out everywhere. This one ordered from Lowes seemed right sized and like the old one being replaced. It's working fine and she runs it on low AC but only when it's real hot. No complaints so far.

dmonk8 7/28/2021

Purchased this at a price that couldn't be beat for a small bedroom. Its a bit loud for its size and output, and doesnt cool particularly fast, but gets the job done. I'd say its a solid O.K.If you want this for your main bedroom AC, i'd say spend a little bit extra and get something quieter or more efficient.

Sizzlingwithac 7/20/2021

I bought this last year and used it a handful of times. This year it blows out hot air. It is now outside of the warranty period and I'm out $180. Complete piece of junk. Should've purchased a better air conditioner instead of purchasing more stuff to add to the landfill.

I bought two of these units to keep my first level cool through this recent heat wave. I have one on each end room, providing a level cool. I took off one star, because this model doesn't have a drain hole. I was instructed by customer service, I have to tilt unit outside to drain. Other than that, they are a good bang for the buck. Not too loud either.

Jessdevivre 7/13/2021

We had a new Danby of the same power/size in a teardrop trailer we purchased. We™€™re in the PNW so we didn™€™t even try it til we were heading to Montana - in summer. Oh no! It totally worked - except it didn™€™t work at all - not even cool air. We quickly purchased this unit based on its good reviews on Amazon - and even with all the doors and windows to the trailer open it was immediately cold. Lots of cold. Total game changer for our trip!We™€™re super pleased! And we™€™re super cool. Like, so cool.

Not quite as cool as I was hoping for

srichard67 7/11/2021

I installed this AC unit in a 12'x11' room with two windows, one facing southeast and the other facing northeast. The AC unit is in the southeast facing window. During the last heat wave, the temperature of the room was tolerable but not comfortable despite being on high cool. To be fair, the remainder of the window in which it was installed was uncovered, so the sun was shining through during much of the day. And on the plus side, installation was quite easy and fast. I just wish it were more powerful.
