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.

Works well but noisy

Jim1973 4/29/2021

I bought this unit for a bedroom over my garage. It moves a lot of air and keeps the room warm or cool when need. However it has an annoying rattle that appears to come from the vent. I have tried to quiet it by stuffing small pieces of cardboard between the gaps. That seems to work a little bit for a little while. Im still working on placement of other makeshift wedges to stop the rattle. Also it cycles on and off very frequently on the energy saver and heat modes. Since this is a bedroom the two above complaints can make sleeping a challenge. One other issue I had was the manual is not the best. It was difficult to follow the directions for installation and the pictures were small and hard to see the detail. I would have given a higher rating if it were not for the noise.

Great unit

MrRod 1/27/2021

The unit works well. I did have a problem with the alluvial fan inside. 3 of the 5 blades were broken before we installed it. The box and cover for the unit were undamaged but the fan already was. With LG customer service the process of contacting a repairman and getting the repair made was exceptional. That was the only problem and it was resolved both quickly and professionally.

Product is just what we needed

MommaKat 1/25/2021

We bought this unit to replace one just like it that we had for about five years. This unit like the one before it works just as it was described. A simple cleaning of the filter and unit maintains it working. It easily changes from AC to Heat and in our Texas weather that is pretty often. It makes the transition without hesitation and it very sufficiently cools/ heats a garage that was converted onto a man cave.

Aunt Chell 12/12/2020

Bought this unit for a 16x30 unfinished cabin that Im living in while working on it. I have insulation on all the walls but ceiling is unfinished. Im on a prepay account right now and this unit has cut my bill in half and is very efficient in keeping it cool even in the Texas heat Im now using the heater which keeps it nice and toasty but the usage is quite high and doubled my bill. Not bad until it gets down Below 40 degrees. There is a slight rattle from the fan not super loud but in a small area might bother some light sleepers it doesnt bother me. Great unit for the price have used all the modes fan speeds and timer all work perfectly. Would purchase again.
