Very quite

By

Comments about GE 5,050 BTU Window Air Conditioner:

I bought a GE Air Conditioner for the bedroom, and the great thing is the noise levels are very low especially in the low fan mode. It does takes about 15-20 min to cool the room, but then you cannot expect anything more from a 5050 BTU unit. Performance has been very steady. I wanted an inexpensive, lightweight & quiet a/c unit. On the negative side it does struggle to get temperatures down, the room is probably slightly on the large size for it to cope, but it does enough to let us sleep at night just now, but will have to wait for the real summer heat to see then! Would not recommend it for a large room, but for a small room I would think it would be great. Oh and as an aside, I bought this direct from Abt Electrics, they ship it for free!

GE Air Conditioner AST05LK -does not take load for medium room

By 

from Cupertino, CA

Comments about GE 5,050 BTU Window Air Conditioner:

We bought this model of GE becuase of few reasons 1. GE Reputation and brand name and 2.  5,050 BTU Window A/C,5,000 Cooling BTU.1.4 Dehumidification but none of the reason was valid to buy this unit.

We had 120 sq feet rooom but it could not able to cool properly. Noise level is very high especiallly in the night when you want the lowest noise level. My kids wake up sometime in the middle of night due to A/C noise level. GE has to put some man at work to reduce this level. Actuallly we stopped using it in the night.

AS per the specification there is variable setting thermo set but it is hard to adjust. Packaging also was not proper. User Manual does not cover all points.

Other problem is you have install side plates your self. It took almost 5-6 hours to install it becuase dimensions was not proper fit so need to do a work around to fix it.

Somtimes it takes at least 1 hour to cool down the room by 3-4 degree in temp, which is not acceptable because by the time we are done in that room during day time. Even its dehumidifcation never worked for us.

Do not buy it.
