What experts liked
It’s a little bit louder and higher-pitched than our new pick but it’s an equally capable performer that’s usually around the same price. The Frigidaire is also a little bit easier to install because it’s smaller and lighter.

It has up/down louver control.
- Consumer Reports
Features a robust remote control with a built-in thermostat, allowing you to program the A/C to shut off when the temperature around the remote itself reaches the target.

Instead of using a filter to remove impurities from the air, like pollen, dust, and bacteria, it has the upgraded feature of using an air ionizer.

Easy to set up. Too loud. Bought this to replace an older AC unit. I ended up using the old one instead of the new one. Just too loud.
- Consumer Reports
This model’s fan noise is relatively intrusive, and there’s no drain for whatever humidity may accumulate.
