The LG LW8012ER has three powerful cooling and fan speeds that give you total control over the climate in your room. This unit has 4-way air direction so the user can redirect the cool air where it is needed most. The auto restart feature is a blessing in really hot weather because we know that is when power failure is going to occur. The remote control is the lazy man’s dream and the 12-hour on/off timer saves energy and is a cool feature. This is the perfect cooling unit for room up to 340 square feet.
The compressor is quiet, which is surprising. The remote makes it super easy to change fan/cool/energy saver modes and temperature even from across the room. Even with two units installed the electric bill did not go up so I would say that this model is definitely economical. This window air conditioner can cool a room fairly quickly, which is important when you just need to get comfortable fast.
Lots of plastic parts that vibrate and rattle against each other which can be annoying. The fan motor is quite loud for all three speeds.
The Bottom Line:
The LG LW8012ER is recommended because of its ability to cool down a room quickly, its energy efficiency and because it has a really handy remote. The white color fits nicely in any room décor and it is the perfect size for smaller rooms. The unit is easy to install and use and many of stated that they have had the same unit for several years so it is built to last.
