The Frigidaire FRA064VU1 window mounted air conditioner is very understated in terms of looks. Unlike many other models designed to be installed in a window, it won’t look foreboding. With a capacity of 6000 BTU and 8 way air direction control this unit will easily cool a room up to 216 square feet, making it perfect for bedrooms and studies. One of the best features about this model is it’s built to fit windows larger than 36”.
Energy is something everyone worries about these days and Frigidaire has thought about this with the FRA064VU1. It holds the highly regarded energy star rating and because of its 8 way air direction control, it will cool a room far quicker. The quicker the air is cooled, the less energy you use.
You can benefit from a number of additional features with this model. It comes with a full function remote control and electronic control panel for ease of use. You will also experience not only cool but clean air as well, as the FRA064VU1 is fitted with an antimicrobial mesh filter. The filter is very easy to maintain using the slide in/out option.

What We Didn't Like
- Air Direction
It has been noted that this unit does send a lot of air upwards which can be an issue for some people. However, since hot air rises, this design may well have been deliberate.
- Remote Control
The remote control included with the FRA064VU1 does not have a digital display which can make operation difficult when selecting some settings.
Frigidaire has done a fantastic job with the design of this window air conditioner. It won’t block out too much light which is a major issue with many other models. It also has a very low profile look which won’t intrude on your living space. The FRA064VU1 is built to last, packed with many features for ease of use and is incredibly energy efficient. For the price tag, we consider this unit to be a very good buy.Review by AirReflect ©
