Gone are the days when air conditioners were strictly massive, less-than-pretty things that took up way too much space. A modern smart air conditioner is made to be functional, useful, and easy to use. This FRIGIDAIRE 12,000 BTU Cool Connect Smart Portable Air Conditioner encompasses all the features you could dream of in an A/C unit while keeping your home nice and cool.

Product Overview

Most people have at one point experienced the discomfort of extreme heat and humidity. This FRIGIDAIRE unit effectively deals with both of those issues, resolves a few more, and as a bonus - it's one of the best-looking air conditioners on the market.

FRIGIDAIRE 12,000 BTU Cool Connect Smart Portable Air Conditioner

Frigidaire Smart Window Air Conditioner

  • Size: 12,000 BTU
  • Noise Level dB- 53
  • Room Size: 550 sq. ft.
  • 85 pounds weight

This product's pleasing look is probably one of the first things you will notice. The unit is portable and comes with a set of wheels, which allow you to easily move it wherever you currently need it the most. The coloring is an elegant mix of white, silver and grey tones that come together to create an appliance that is both decorative and useful.

It has a semi-oval shape and while it's tall, it does not take up much space in your home. The cooling vents are placed right at the top of the unit. FRIGIDAIRE has a 360-degree airflow which circulates cool air in an upward spiral, spreading throughout the room.

At the top of the unit, near the vents, you will find a handy panel that highlights the current temperature, as well as which settings are currently in use. Even that little detail has a very unexpected design - as opposed to the usual black LCD screen, the panel here blends in with the rest of the air conditioner.

Powerful smart cooling

This FRIGIDAIRE air conditioner is a powerful tool, capable of cooling your room down in a very short time. With its 12,000 BTUs, it covers 550 square feet, delivering the relief you're looking for in times of extreme heat outside. You will be able to control the temperature with exact precision due to the 3 cooling speeds, 3 fan speeds, and 24-hour on/off timer that is included in this A/C unit.

Aside from keeping you pleasantly cool, this air conditioner also has a dehumidifying function. Humid air can sometimes be just as harmful as high temperatures, especially for people with breathing problems, such as allergies or asthma. Even those that are perfectly healthy will find that humidity is a major pain to deal with. Fortunately, this FRIGIDAIRE A/C unit is capable of dehumidifying up to 3 pints per hour.

Perhaps the most interesting feature of this modern smart air conditioner is the fact that you can control it from anywhere in the world. This air conditioner is a Wi-Fi-connected unit that can be adjusted virtually anywhere. FRIGIDAIRE has a free app that you can download and connect to your A/C, which really takes it to the next level.

Using the app you are able to remotely turn the unit on or off, control modes and fan speeds, and change the temperature. You can save energy by turning it off while you're not home, then turn it back on when you're on the way. That way you will always come back to a comfortable space, even during the worst heat.

The app also has a scheduling function that lets you plan out your temperature throughout a whole 24-hour cycle. With this product, you will never suffer due to the wrong temperature again.
