Frigidaire FRA054XT7

Frigidaire has managed to bring a mini air conditioner to the market that really packs a punch for its size. The FRA054XT7 has a capacity of 5000 BTU and will cool rooms up to 165 square feet in size. The added features with this unit are something that’s normally only found on units that are much bigger (and more expensive). Quiet operation and ready select controls are just two features you can expect for your money.

Review Details

The Frigidaire FRA054XT7 is not only energy star rated but it has an energy efficient ratio (EER) of 10.7 which means you won’t see your utility bills go through the roof when it’s needed most. For further savings on your household bills this unit has a low voltage start-up and energy saving mode.

This air conditioner couldn’t be easier to install with the handy quick mount kit that’s included. It also has extendable side panels so it will fit snuggly into your window. Indoor air comfort is what Frigidaire has managed to achieve with this model. You benefit from 2 way directional air control, 2 cooling and fan speeds and an easy slide out antibacterial mesh filter. This filter will remove potentially harmful airborne particles and reduce common household odors.

What We Liked

  • Automated Temperature Control
    The FRA054XT7 will take the guess work out of keeping your room cool. Once the desired temperature has been set, your unit will do the rest.
  • Ease of Use
    Easy to install, the FRA054XT7 also has a 24 on/off timer for your convenience. The automatic re-start will power the unit back up to its previous settings and you benefit from ready select electronic controls.
  • Full Function Remote Control
    Frigidaire has included a full functional remote control. You can operate all the functions from the comfort of their own armchair.
  • Cool and Cleaner Air
    With 2 speeds and 2 way air direction, the FRA054XT7 will keep the air in your room at a comfortable level on hot days. Included is an anti-bacterial mesh filter that removes airborne particles and common household odors.

What We Didn't Like

  • Noise Levels
    The FRA054XT7 can be a little on the loud side when both the fan and compressor are running. However, on the energy saving mode there are few complaints.
  • Ability to Cool
    Some have noted this unit can take time to reach the desired temperature, but you must bear in mind this model is built to cool rooms that are no larger than 165 square feet.

Conclusion

The Frigidaire FRA054XT7 is not expensive to buy and other models in this price range do not offer the number features this unit does. It’s efficient at the job it was built for and incredibly easy to use. There are not many other 5000 BTU air conditioners that boast an EER of 10.7 and are energy star rated as well, so the cost to run this unit is not something you will need to worry about.
