Window Air Conditioner - LW8012ER
It's All About Anticipation
Cool a little while you save a lot. With 8,000 BTUs this unit will save you energy and money while cooling a room up to 350 square feet. Plus, they've got you covered with Auto Restart, so when storms, high wind or heat waves cause a power outage, your unit automatically turns back on when power returns.

3 Cooling and Fan Speeds with Auto Cool
Three powerful cooling and fan speeds allow you to control the temperature of your room at your pace.

4-Way Air Direction
Enjoy the cool air even more with their 4-way air direction. By adjusting the deflection, air is directed up, down, left or right to move the air where it's needed most.

Power Failure Auto Restart
Living isn't always easy in the summer. There are storms, high winds and extreme heat that can lead to power outages. Keep yourself covered with Auto Restart, which automatically turns the unit back on when power is restored.

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 4.8 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Powerful We bought two units, one was making a rubbing sound and had to be taken away (LG has a great after-sale service). The room cools down pretty fast, but it was louder than I thought (it was the first unit I owned though, so I have nothing to compare it to, perhaps it is relatively not loud). However, does not prevent us from sleeping when running in bedroom, still better than no A/C at all. 6/5/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by This unit is reliable and easy to use. This is my second LG LW8012ER AC unit. My first one lasted several years with heavy use. My room is 22 X 25' and upstairs, so it gets very hot in the summer despite central air. This unit keeps my room very comfortable even on the hottest days. The remote makes it convenient to change modes #fan/cool/energy saver# and temperature from across the room. The maintenance couldn't be easier. Every couple of months I just pull the front grill cover down, remove the filter, rinse it in the sink and replace it. I think the biggest selling point was the reliability. I tend to use the fan on this unit throughout the whole year, even when I am not using the AC. Even so, the first unit lasted several years, so when it came time to replace it I was happy to find the exact same model. 1/16/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good product! Purchased online, read reviews prior, found most reviews spot on after receipt and installation. Specs were just about exactly right, just a smidgin off in rough opening size required, had to enlarge, but not a big deal. Good construction, air flow directors could be better, but for the price, this was a very good buy. 11/2/12
