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.

Ridiculously, unusably noisy.

JHemphill 6/30/2022

This air conditioner intermittently squeals at an insanely high pitch that makes it unusable - after only a few weeks of use it started making this noise, which is so irritating that one cannot really use the air conditioner. I just wasted $500.

Less than 6 months and broken

dsmole 2/1/2022

Less than 6 months in and motor is done. Tried using it in the winter on fan mode to cool my room off for a little bit and motor is now shot. After 5 months I will be getting a new AC unit. Guess I am headed to Amazon to find a durable one.

For the money, lame!

BigChieg 9/2/2021

GE products have always been a go to for the most part as a landlord of multiple units, especially when it comes to appliances; but this air conditioner that I bought is totally underwhelming and does not perform to the designated square footage specifications. I had to put a Lasko fan underneath it to increase its performance slightly, but it's about 200 ft.² under its potential.

Gets the entire Apartment Cold but strange sound

GE Air Conditioner 6/28/2021

Gets the whole apartment really cold which is really good but sometimes there's a strange sound in the morning for some reason, and the Energy Saver option doesn't always work.

No HomeKit

Lspieg 6/27/2021

Not the reason why I bought this ac, but really thought it was HomeKit compatible. It does cool off a lot more of the apartment then I thought it would. Using the app on my phone is easy.

GE 12,000 btu Air Conditioner

Pratt0917 6/17/2021

This A/C is great for my large room. I like how it can be controlled without anyone being here. There is an app on the phone for it. That's all I owned is G/E air conditioners. I've got a 5,000, 8,000, and a 12,000 btu.

Big bang for budget price.

burlymarshall 6/13/2021

Great combination of features for a economy price. Even better tho, this thing cools well beyond what it is rated at. I had planned on running my bedroom units during the day to keep this cooling the footage that its rated at. I havent had to do that which means this unit is cooling about 800 sq ft at 93 degree outdoor temps. Awesome.

Excellent features and ice cold air. Every time I get home my house feels like a fridge and it came right in time for the heat wave in town. Very pricey but worth every penny.

BurgmanGreg 5/18/2021

Love that I can control my 2 GE air conditioners from my iPhone. This is my second purchase, to add to my first one which has been running flawlessly 24/7 for over a year here in Florida. Will definitely be sticking with GE in the future!

Piece of junk!

telecom 5/18/2021

This is my second GE air conditioner. The first one was a little better than the second one, but they are a piece of junk. They work for a little while, then the cold air part stops and there's no way to recharge it - other than buy a new one. Which won't be happening again!
