Welcome To LG
LG Electronics USA Commercial Air Conditioning business is a leading player in the global air conditioning market, manufacturing both commercial and residential air conditioners and providing total sustainability and building management solutions. From consumer units to commercial air conditioning systems, LG provides a wide range of innovative products for heating, ventilating and air conditioning.

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 over-sized 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. Locate the room size in the chart below to select the appropriate BTUs. Then use the product information to select the unit for your room. When cooling rooms with uninsulated ceilings, great rooms, or southern or western sun exposures - step up to the next BTU size.

Air Conditioner Tips
Air flow - Keep air filters clean. Do not block air flow areas.

Roomside view - J-models feature concealed power cord storage, this eliminates excessive cord exposure when receptacle is located close to unit.

Wall Opening For RAB46/47/48 Cases
A finished opening of 26 1/8" x 15 3/4", clear of intrusions, is required. Keep clearance of 4" from side walls. Brick veneer or frame walls should have wood studding surrounding case to provide firm anchoring with screws. Case can be fastened directly to brick or block walls with screws sunk in lead expansion shields. NOTE: units should be caulked on all four sides of case to the building exterior to assure building integrity.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really like this product a lot EXCEPT FOR.... Bought this a/c, had it installed in window, tested it, and just waited for the first hot day. First hot day arrived, turned it on, and just made a clicking sound. Still under warranty so called LG. LG repairman came out and said that the motor was never screwed in to the chassis! So, while I love the AC..it is quiet, cools great, and simple to use...I have a problem with LG's quality control. How could they let a product go out without screwing in the motor! So if you're lucky enough to get one with the motor screwed in correctly, you will really like the product! 6/24/12

Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is super cool! This LG window air conditioner is a great poduct. I purchased the unit to cool a large upstairs area in my home. It exceeded all my expectations for performance. The area is very comfortable now for my family and I to spend time in. I would say to anyone looking for a unit to do the job it was designed for, to purchase this one. 5/6/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by Major disappointment! After being delivered a month after the promised delivery date, window unit was installed by my building superintendent & staff who have installed hundreds of similar units. The AC makes an extremely loud clunking noise (nothing to do with the grill on the front rattling). It died within several minutes the first time I turned it on; took a half dozen times to get it to run, and now makes a noise so loud I have to leave the room to carry on a conversation. It will most likely not last more than a day or two, but no repairman available for a week (and temps in the 90s here in NYC). Additionally, the tab to open and close the vent is missing.I will not buy another LG product. The second AC unit I purchased is still in the box and will be returned. 7/3/12
