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.

Spectacular Product

Supremeblends 8/31/2021

I purchased this product about a month ago and I have been very happy with the unit. It is an improvement over the earlier model, also which I used to own.

Low Quality

Lowes167 8/19/2021

Poor design. Slide-out chassis causes air leaks causing the unit to run longer. Also allows bugs to come in. The frame is thin and flimsy. We are constantly adjusting the chassis & frame because it vibrates so much that the fan inside keeps hitting the styrofoam. Over time, it sounds like a helicopter. Choppy-noisy-irritating sounds. There is NO drain. Water builds up inside the unit until it hits the fan and then the water is flung out of the side vents. On humid days, not only does the water come out of the side vents, it pours out through the radiator at the back of the chassis. Our previous Frigidaire A/C was very sturdy and lasted almost 8 years. We bought this one because it was the same dimensions as the previous one. We quickly found out that the quality was terrible on the new model.

Ice Lady 8/2/2021

The unit was easy to install and looks nice. The cooling feature is working great and this winter I'm sure I will be thankful to have a duel purpose unit.

Quiet, Efficient, Air Conditioned Comfort

Happy Frigidaire Con 6/20/2021

I spent a great deal of time researching most air conditioners currently available to market consumers. So, when I finally settled on the Frigidaire unit I chose, my expectations were quite high. I™€™m happy to report they have all been met & exceeded. One push of the on button, & preset functions quietly take over to provide just the right amount of cool comfort, automatically turning off & on, as is needed to maintain a desired level of comfort. What could be more efficient? The unit can literally run itself, with minor adjustments towards an individual preference, making it quite suitable for anyone™€™s needs, at any given time.
