Frigidaire FRA296ST2 Reviews

Date published: 2013-10-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product I bought this to cool my 4800 sf house. With a fan, it does the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AC Frigidaire window unit I can not give a true review, I did purchase the Frigidaire window-mount heavy duty air conditioner when it arrived I was so excited that it arrived two days earlier than I expected, but I was disappointed and upset because it had a 6-30 plug on it. Not a 110 plug. I would have to have my house rewired to accommodate the voltage. It looks nice and would have fit my standard size window. But I had to return it. :-(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome AC I have always purchased Frigidaire products because of their quality and reliability and this air conditioner is no exception. It cools my entire top floor of my home and it is so quiet that I have to check to make sure that it is still on!! It is easy to operate and it looks great too! I know that I will be using it for many years to come. As always, I can always depend on Frigidaire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from COOL!! I mostly just wanted to tell people that these big units fit in smaller windows than described. (says min. width 31") My window was 26.5 and it fit perfectly. Just don't use the wings. I put off buying a large unit for several years since I didn't think it would fit. I think the manufactures might sell more if they let people know this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant Product I bought to replace my 5 year old AC, same size, BTU's, damaged in Hurricane Ike. I love the remote, all the features, like energy saver, sleep mode, and easy clean filter with light to remind me when to clean. My prior A/C, also an energy saver cost me about 25% more to operate, even with the hottest, biggest drought in recorded history for Houston, Texas in 2011. It cools my shotgun style open rooms from Den, D/R, Kitchen, to L/R. My former one did not do this, but this one cools it all well on the Energy Saver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
