Frigidaire FRA053PU1: product features
There are many reasons why the Frigidaire FRA053PU1 is perfect for smaller room (not over 150 square feet) when the purpose is to not only cool the air but remove pollen and impurities from the air including the clean air ionizer and full-function remote control that gives precise control over temperature and fan speed. The caster wheels make it relatively easy to move it from room to room so you can cool your whole home or just one room as needed. The side handles aid in transporting it and the portable design allows it to easily fit any space. What we like: This is a nice looking portable air conditioner that should compliment any modern room.
The vent tube is a nice length, which is not always the case with other units, and the plastic vent tube is 6″ thick, which is also of good quality. The unit cools very well and the choice of manual or auto control is nice. The timers and ability to use sleep-mode is something other models don’t offer so this is much appreciated. What we don’t like: It can be awkward to drain the unit because the drain is only about an inch from the floor.
The fan is always on when the unit is on so this could be an issue if you plan on putting the unit in your bedroom and you are someone else is a light sleeper because the fan does make noise. If the outside temperature goes higher than 90 degrees F, this unit does not perform as well as units with high BTUs. The bottom line: The Frigidaire FRA053PU1 is the perfect unit for small bedrooms or other rooms in the home. It has many features that make it highly recommended that allow for complete control of the unit. The FRA053PU1 is not recommended for really hot climates because the BTUs simply are not powerful enough.
