No products found.

This Frigidaire 10000 BTU window AC is a “smart home” unit.

It comes with WiFi connectivity making it a Smart Window Air Conditioner w/ mobile app control — once set up, you can change all settings and set a desired temp.

Available in multiple sizes — the 10000 BTU is the most popular because of its size versatility.

Each is Energy Star rated.

Users say it’s a little loud but runs quietly when maintaining temperature.

Also comes with a “Sleep Mode” function for even quieter noise levels.

The downside is the higher price tag.

No products found.

The LG 10000 BTU unit (LW1017ERSM) is a smart window air conditioner — very popular for city apartments!

It’s one of LG’s Energy Star-rated models, designed for rooms up to 450 sq. ft.

If the 10000 BTU is not the right size, here’s a list of all unit sizes:

As a “smart” WiFi air conditioner, you can use your phone to operate it remotely — buyers say it’s useful if you forget to turn it off.

Noise Level (dB): ≤ 54 decibels

The mobile app also provides a lot more functionality than you’d get w/ a typical remote control.

Buyers say it’s especially useful for turning the AC off (in case you forget).

Mobile features include:

  • Turn on/off remotely
  • Set exact room temps
  • Change modes (air conditioning, dehumidifying, and fan)
  • Switch the fan or air conditioner power
  • Toggle dehumidifier speeds

Personally, the LG LW1017ERSM window AC (10000 BTU) would be my choice — the right size for my bedroom, and I’m definitely a light sleeper. 

Little more expensive than I’d like, but lower energy usage helps save electricity costs long-term.

The LG 10000 BTU window ac is available with or without WiFi (mobile app) functionality.

Frigidaire FFRE103ZA1 10,000 BTU Window AC

No products found.

The Frigidaire FFRE103ZA1 is a compact 10000 BTU window air conditioner.

It was over-priced last year because it was a newer model, but it has come down in price this year.

What makes it unique is its ability to maintain consistent room temperatures for long hours. Unlike other window-mounted air conditioners, they it does not constantly switch on/off all night.

For its size, it is also one of the most energy-efficient window air conditioners, with an EER rating of 12.2.

The downside is that it is a little louder than others on my list, with decibels up to 59.

Personally, I think it is one of the best 10000 BTU window air conditioner units for home offices or living rooms.

Additional features:

3 fan speeds, remote control, programmable timer, sleep mode + easy install

Buyers like its affordable price and consistent performance.
