When many consumers imagine a window air conditioning unit, they picture an undersized appliance that can only effectively cool the smallest of spaces. However, oftentimes consumers have a large room, such as a basement or room over the garage, which is not sufficiently cooled through central air conditioning.

Because this Frigidaire model is such a high-powered unit, it can effectively cool a room (or home) up to 1672 square feet. It is important not to use this powerful an air conditioner in a substantially smaller room as doing so would be a waste of energy and money.

 High Tech

Not only is the Frigidaire FRA256SV2 an extremely powerful air conditioner, it also comes equipped with some of the most technologically advanced features currently available on the market. One of the most unique features of this air conditioner is the remote control that is included in your purchase. Not only does the remote allow you to effortlessly control the air output and temperature of your room from any location within the room, it also acts as a mobile thermostat. The remote actually measures the temperature of the room from wherever it is placed and sends signals back to your main unit. The air conditioner then adjusts the temperature accordingly. Having a remote with this ability is essential for large rooms where the temperature can change drastically from one end to the other.

Controlling the temperature in your room is made even easier by the digital controls located on the air conditioning unit. These controls allow you to change the temperature, fan, and mode settings with the touch of a button, ensuring that you have your room temperature regulated exactly how you would like. Additionally, the Frigidaire FRA256SV2 has three different fan speeds and the ability to change the direction in which you would like the air to flow. The combination of these many features means that you will never have to worry about being comfortably cooled in your room.

 Air Filter

The Frigidaire FRA256SV2 is also equipped with a special antibacterial air filter. This innovative filter works to remove dust and other airborne particles from your room while it cools. A filter indication light that is located on the air conditioning unit lets you easily know when it is time to clean your filter. It is important to clean your filter as soon as the indication light comes on to ensure that you are receiving the maximum cleaning benefits of your filter and that the air conditioning unit is running at its maximum efficiency.

 Sleep Mode

This Frigidaire model is also equipped with sleep mode, a setting designed to make sleeping in your air conditioned room very comfortable. During sleep mode, the air conditioner runs as quietly as possible so that the noise does not interfere with your sleep. Additionally, the temperature of the room increases incrementally as time passes so you don’t get too cold or use excess energy unnecessarily.

 Energy Star Rated

You might be thinking that such a large air conditioner might require an excessive amount of energy to run. However, the Frigidaire FRA256SV2 has been deemed to be Energy Star compliant, which shows that it exceeds the current federal energy guidelines and regulations. This unit also has an energy efficiency ratio (EER) of 9.4, meaning that you won’t break the bank when running this air conditioner. Also, this Frigidaire model comes with a timer that you can set up to 24 hours in advance. Using this timer will ensure that you never use your unit more than necessary. Also, you never have to worry about coming home to a hot and stuffy room!


The only down side of this particular air conditioning unit is its price. All of the power and features included with this unit don’t come cheap. However, for the list price of $629, you will have the power to cool the largest of spaces and the features to make the cooling process a breeze! Additionally, the one year warranty and the Frigidaire brand name can help you rest assured knowing that you bought a high quality product that is sure to bring you joy for many years to come.
