    Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

    Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

    Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

    Good replacement

    JohnBoyJJH 7/12/2022

    Have only had it for a week but it's working just fine. It's an 8300BTU replacement for an old Kenmore 6,000BTU unit that didn't have a very sensitive thermostat and I needed to constantly get up and adjust the dial. This has a remote control that allows adjusting from my chair that is most convenient. I purchased it from a local appliance dealer and since it was slightly larger by a couple of inches I paid for installation and a new sleeve. Installer did a great job, cleaned up and put molding inside. Very professional job and would recommend a professional installer for this job. Very happy so far but it's new and works well. Time will tell how things work out but GE builds jet engines so hoping their AC's are just as dependable but I bought a 5 year warranty to be safe. Fingers crossed.

    Persistent clicking in humid conditions

    Patty22002 7/2/2022

    The unit generally functions well and effectively cools the space. However, when the humidity is above 50% the unit makes persistent and varied clicking sounds, which are very irritating and at times quite loud. After the first unit did this, GE arranged for a replacement, but the second unit has the same issue. There appears to be no way to repair this. I would not buy this again.

    This is a review for the GE air conditioner. First off with the sleeve that it came with was a breeze to install. Took me a few to figure out but once I got the hang of it. Works great. Still playing with all the functions and feature. Works powerful quiet and efficient.

    dadof1 6/15/2021

    This GE Air Conditioner was very easy to install... and it's very easy to use... we put it on high at the beginning but fairly quickly lowered it to medium. I'm a person that's always hot and this works very well for me. The remote works well but I do wish the buttons were raised a bit more, but that's just nitpicking... overall I'd vibe this a 10/10

    Sdough5 6/15/2021

    There's a reason why we look at GE products first. And it's because of their high quality, well made items. This room air conditioner is exactly that. It's a perfect option for a 118-172 sq ft room. It comes with a remote control! And has 3 cool and fan options. It was very self explanatory to install and an appliance that I absolutely recommend. It has worked perfectly and we have had zero issues.

    MadToxicologist 6/7/2021

    This air conditioner is a beast! The fan one of the quietest I have heard and can barely be heard when on the lowest eco setting. I would run it full blast when starting it up and it would cool the room it was in very quickly. From there it only required a minimal setting to maintain the cooler temperature. Great addition to my home!

    Quality Product

    Faheem 6/3/2021

    As expected from G.E this AC has already been a lifesaver for the brutal heat wave in the East Coast. It's also one of the slimmest front end unit and I think it looks great in your living room. It did a wonderful job in cooling a 1000 sq ft apartment rapidly. As with everything from G.E I expect this unit to last a long time as well.

    The air conditioner unit fits well into the wall sleeve that came with it. The air conditioner works well, cools my studio apartment fairly quickly. It is not too loud when it runs. It has several options for its operation which allows the user to customize.

    GE Wall AC

    Santos O 5/25/2021

    We live in New England off the coast line. I wanted a newer model AC to replace our current wall AC which was on its last leg. I wanted an AC that would not take up window space, or one that required a lot of maintenance. We've only been using the GE wall AC for about 3 weeks. The AC blast cold air!!!! The remote makes it easy to control without getting up. It does vibrate so we used insulation padding to stop the humming sound, and the vents only move up and down not side to side for adjusting the air flow.

    Coolest AC

    VDesi 5/21/2021

    This air conditioner unit is very well made and GE has yet again delivered a quality product. This AC sits in my upstairs study/playroom/bonus room ,which is easily 700 sq ft. It cools very easily and effectively. Overall, it's a great product that works very well. The installation through the wall was easy , as I already had an older unit, that I replaced with. I used sleeves for this AC, as it will help keep my AC unit protected from outside element and last longer. Through the wall installation keeps my windows open/clear from the view outside. Operation/running wise - it is great. very quiet comparatively (especially to the old Heir one I had). It keeps the area cool for long period of time, so you know it's doing its job well. All the standard features of speed and temperature display etc. is great and works perfectly. I'd highly recommend.

    I recently got this GE air conditioning unit and am very satisfied with it so far. The installation was very quick and pretty easy, if you've installed ACs before you will have no problem with this one. It is also very efficient as it cools an entire bedroom very quickly.

    Great AC unit. Make sure you have the right built in unit space for this unit, its not a window unit. Has a great feature that saves energy, and cools the room down very quickly. I like the size of it, it fits perfectly in my living room and cools me down very well.

    Cools my room fast

    Richard sann 5/18/2021

    I have this installed in my bedroom. It feels like an ice box in there. The thermometer is easy to wipe down to clean and has all the sleeper/timer buttons, making it easy to fall asleep wit my the AC on. The thermostat is pretty accurate on it. I set the temp to 70 and it turns on and off to maintain that temperature. I recommend having a second person there for installation as this unit is quite heavy at approximately 80 pounds. Another quality product from GE!
