Frigidaire Home Comfort Products
Frigidaire offers consumers a complete line of room air conditioners, dehumidifiers, portable air conditioners and ductless mini-split air conditioners desgined with the latest in technology to meet every need. The products provide consumers with fresh designs and features that work with any decor and meet the highest of expectations in both functionality and quality.

For 2011, Frigidaire has made further improvements to the product offering driven by consumer needs and requests. The heat and cool offering of window air conditioners has expanded with the addition of a heat pump model providing better heating with up to 70% more efficiency. In dehumidifiers, they have increased capacity of the smallest model by 20% and improved the hose connection to the exterior of the unit for better accessibility. The bucket design has also been improved to ease in handling and prevent spills. The portables line now includes true 5,000 BTU and 7,000 BTU models for a full offering. And this year, Frigidaire has rounded out the cooling portfolio with a complete lineup of ductless mini-splits.

From small bedrooms and bonus rooms to large, semi-commercial areas, Frigidaire is committed to providing quiet, efficient, and reliable air conditioning products for years of trouble free comfort. Available at AJ Madison.

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. Multiply the length by the width to determine square footage or square meters. When cooling rooms with uninsulated ceilings, great rooms, or southern or western sun exposures - step up to the next BTU size.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT AIRCONDITIONER I bought this a/c as a replaement for an older one of another brand that i had for many years. Since i never had a frigidaire air conditioner i was hesitant. Well much to my suprise this is a GREAT airconditioner. It keeps my house nice and cool in the rooms needed. sometimes i have to lower it it gets too cool. I bought the same airconditioner for my bedroom and any other a/c i need in my home i will definatly purchase this model and brand. 8/1/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I purchased this air conditioner last year and I have to say it works great!! Cools off My entire 2 bedroom apartment. Keeps it nice and frosty. We are experiencing 90 degree weather and above here in Boston for about a week and I must say this air conditioner is not letting me feel the heat at all. I turn it off at times because it gets chilly. The minute it starts to heat up in here I turn it right back on and it really does "quickly" cool the place down. I love it. It was definitely a great investment for someone like me who doesn't like to sweat or feel overheated. Thanks Frigidaire for making such a great, worthy product. Worth the money indeed. 7/20/11
Rated 3 out of 5 by expected more For 28,000 BTU I expected it to be colder than what it is and cool a much larger space, and a little loud. 2/24/15
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not the Value I Expected For the price I paid I expected more from this unit. My home is 1,064 sq. ft. and according to the mfg., this unit should cool 1,960 sq. ft.. In order to cool the house I have to keep the thermostat at 62 degrees F. constantly with the fan on high. I have had this unit throughout the summer (Texas heat). 10/1/14
