Clean the coils its freezing up because the air flow is restricted because of dirty coil or filter after cleaning the coils and it still freezing up then it will need some refrigerant aka freon

Where does the water drain out of the unit on the frigidaire 10000-12000 btu and the 22000-285000 btu units?


The unit should be angled back to the outside. The water will run thru a tube from the indoor coil to the outdoor coil, then most fan blades have a slinger on them that picks up the water and throws it on the out door coil, which makes it more efficient but after time the water and dust will pile up on the coil and require cleaning at some point. If you clean the coil you can extend the life of the unit quite a bit. So you may not get any water to drip outside.

A lot of the newer window units design the outside fan to pickup the condensate water and sling it onto the coil. The evaporative effect makes the unit run more efficiently. They ususally don't spit, but if the unit is running well, otherwise, I would't worry about it.

Hitachi is a good brand, I wouldn't be afraid of it.

As to the size, it seems a little 'oversized' for the room you're talking about.

24x12 = 288 sq ft. As a general rule you need 12000 btu for every 600 sq ft.

I'm thinking between 6000 -10000 btu ought to be big enough.

Lots of things go into sizing, and the size of the room is important - but the 'heat load,' needs to be considered too. For example - will there be a lot of people in this room, or is there a lot of windows, is there electrical equipment in this room that will be putting off heat, and how well is it insulated? So you need to consider all of these things when deciding what size unit to buy.

For example - if this room is a bedroom and used primarily for sleeping - I wouldn't be afraid to put a 6000 btu unit in it - but if it was going to be used as a place with tv's, computers and other electrical equipment I might want to put a 10000 btu (or larger) in it.

Good Luck!



Generally speaking, it sounds like 18000 btu is too much AC here, and there's no reason to spend more money than you need to and you can 'oversize' just as easy as you can 'undersize' when it comes to Air Condtioning.

(Tilted) Plasmaire spits water into room....


What your problem is is that water coming back into your face is condesation. Appearently there is a clog preventing your condensation water from draining out the back side of the a/c You can remove the a/c from it's sleeve, take it outside and with a pump sprayer (Type used for spraying insecticide) filled with water spray around the base of the a/c where the condensor coil sits (you should see a small drain channel in this area) If this drain channel is clogged water will back up and the squirrel cage will pick it up throwing it out into the house.. Good Luck on your repairs

Sears Plasmaire spits water into room


It's probably just holding water somewhere and getting thrown out. I've seen people drill holes on the bottoms to drain water quicker.

I have a GE air conditioner with ditigal panel. I


Wash out outside coil from time to time.This is the most over looked part of window units. Take care not to spray water directly into fan motor. If not real humid in house check temp coming out of ac inside and make sure filter and coil are clean. run on high speed and the air should have good force. 20 to 30 degree temp drop of room temp should be about right. Much depend on outside temp and humidity and indoor humidity plus insulation factor of area. How many people are in the area and if you keep unit on day and night .

Frigidaire window unit spits water into room


To be honest with you this is a good and a bad thing. The bad thing is that it is spitting water into the room. The good thing is that the unit is running Great. The amount of humidity it is removing. is greater and faster than it can run down and off the coil. See if there is any possible way to deflect the water. i would recommend trying to attach a piece of screen door material. It will likely keep the water from going through it.
