The Frigidaire brand has made its name synonymous with quality, efficiency, and robustness. Now a subsidiary of the European company of Electrolux (another very highly respected brand in its field), Frigidaire has continued its tradition of manufacturing top-of-the-line products for quite some time now, the company having been founded in 1918. We reviewed the Frigidaire FFRE0633Q1 window mounted air conditioner. Continue reading below to see if this unit lived up to its name.

Frigidaire FFRE0633Q1 Air Conditioner Review 2019

While Frigidaire benefits from an excellent reputation, and international renown, they also suffer from raised expectations as a result. When reviewing a Frigidaire product, there is a temptation to compare said product to the many masterfully devices produced by the brand. However, it is important to remember that simply because a product is not a game-changer, does not make it “bad” in any way, shape, or form. Similarly, being manufactured by a prestigious brand should never be enough to excuse issues with a product.

Today we will be reviewing the Frigidaire FFRE0633Q1, from a fair standpoint, judging the product based on its own merit, and not those of its cousin products, bearing the same name.

 

Cooling Performance

With 6.000 BTUs of cooling power, we would recommend this unit for use in living spaces up to 250 sq. ft.  Thus, we would recognise this unit as a moderately powerful unit, useful in small-medium sized living spaces. As an added benefit, this unit is also capable of removing 1.3 pints of moisture from the air per hour, which is incredibly useful to those of us living in a hot and humid climate. If its a cost effective, simple unit that you’re looking for, we believe this would be a fine choice.

 

Efficiency / Certifications

Unfortunately, the Frigidaire FFRE0633Q1 falls far behind much of its competition with regard to efficiency. Lacking an Energy Star certification, and with an Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) of 9.7, this unit would not be considered very efficient by any standard. This means that while the unit itself is relatively inexpensive, the cost of upkeep will be slightly higher than it would be with several other units on the market.

As far as certifications go, this unit is both UL-Listed and AHAM Certified. This means that the product does not have any negative effects on the air it interacts, and that its performance projections are accurate.

 

Convenience

As far as convenience is concerned,the Frigidaire FFRE0633Q1 is lacking many of the features we look for in window-mounted air conditioner units. Having the fan only setting, and 4-way airflow, this unit has very little included in its design for customer convenience. There is also no remote control, sleep mode, auto restart, timer, or any of the other features we have come to praise units for including in the past. However, this unit is cost effective, so it is not all bad by any means. With a noise level of 52dB, this unit is very quiet when compared to some of the other units we have reviewed. This makes the FFRE0633Q1 ideal for use in an office or nursery environment. If you require an AC unit that will just cool, this may be the right choice for you.

 

Design

Weighing 50lbs, this unit is relatively light. This is a useful aspect of the design for installation and transport of this unit. As mentioned above, the Frigidaire FFRE0633Q1 also contains an air filter, which allows peace of mind to the user. With 4 directional air louvers, this unit can provide cooling power to specific areas of the room selected by the user, which is a very useful feature.

 

Help & Support

As this unit is a Frigidaire product, the user may benefit from Firigidaire’s impressive customer service infrastructure. This includes representatives contactable via email, telephone, and live chat. An FAQs section is also available on the Frigidaire website.

As far as warranty is concerned, the Frigidaire FFRE0633Q1 is backed by a 1-year appliance warranty, and a 5-year compressor warranty. We recommend that any potential buyers contact Frigidaire if they have any queries regarding warranty policy.

 

Verdict

Considering the number of features notably absent from this unit, we are left unsure if this unit would suit everyone. However, if it is a simple, budget friendly AC unit, that just cools a room without any of the attached bells and whistles involved, then by all means we would recommend the Frigidaire FFRE0633Q1. However, if it is luxury and extra features you’re after, unfortunately you’ll find next-to-none in this unit.
