Summary: We originally had a Fredreich air conditioner, and this A/C unit had good instructions on how to install in a larger preinstalled wall unit. It comes with just enough foam material to insert the A/C unit into the wall box. I like it that the remote control has the temperature sensor, so we place that in the middle of the room, so that the room temperature is correct.
Pros: Accurate Temperature Controls, Cools the Whole Room, Energy Efficient
Summary: We simply have no complaints. We went out of our way to find this exact newer model of the wall unit we purchased 13 years ago. Want to add that we purchased this over the phone because we already knew the product...that made our lives easier. Also want to add that the Abt person who installed it was terrific! We really like and appreciate Abt.
Pros: Accurate Temperature Controls, Cools the Whole Room, Energy Efficient, Quiet
Summary: If I knew it was 8.5 EER I might have passed as my utility company currently has a $25 rebate for EER 9+ A/Cs.
Pros: The A/C is excellent at cooling and is much quieter then my old Fedders A/C which I needed to replace after 10 years. It adjusts the fan speed nicely and can use the remote to detect temperature.
Cons: Originally wanted to buy the A/C due to 9.0 EER rating. Out of the box and stickered on the A/C is a note that the AC is 8.5 EER, which just isn't as efficient as the 9.0 on Newegg's website.
