Why NSI Protection Plus?

Our service plan is an economical way to extend the terms of your product's manufacturer parts & labor warranty.

Most manufacturer's limited warranties leave customers with no protection against the rising cost of repairs.

Even the best products can malfunction and the most minor repairs can cost hundreds.

About NSI Protection Plus

Administered by Warrantech and insured by AmTrust Financial, NSI Protection Plus is the largest service network in the industry with 30 years of building the network and over 22 million in paid claims.

The most comprehensive repair plans in the business!

  • Day one coverage on special features
  • Removal and reinstallation coverage
  • $25 Laundry credit (Washers and Dryers)
  • 5 year appliance contracts include 10 year major component coverage
  • $250 Food credit (per incident, eligible products)
  • The only true "No Lemon Guarantee" in the business
  • No "CAP" on repairs or replacement, unlimited repairs.

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.

Little Powerhouse

LNinJersey 10/20/2020

There's a lot of cooling and dehumidifying power in this product despite its low BTU. That's why our other 5 window units are also Frigidaires--performance and reliability. They're a little on the louder side but it doesn't bother us and seems not to bother guests. This model is the smallest, lightest one we've had yet and very energy efficient.

Great cooling capability

mayerobk 9/16/2020

I bought this after having 4 different window units and this one is by far the best and I thought very reasonable. It cools my back porch closed in room that is surrounded by windows perfectly in order for that room not to heat up the rest of the house! The only negative i would say is it is a little loud.

She does the job

haleyeliz 9/5/2020

I bought this unit almost two months ago. The remote and eco feature is nice, the AC gets the job done, the only real issue is the noise. My unit was installed correctly, but the fan is loud enough that I need to turn off the unit when I™€™m on web conference calls while working from home (my coworkers described it as a plane or train taking off in my apartment). Aside from that, it™€™s great.

Nice little AC

kiprice75 8/30/2020

We needed something to help the central air during the dog days of summer on the second floor. Our teenage kids bedrooms were staying hot throughout the evening so we got one of these to cool it. The room is about 12x14 and the AC does an outstanding job of cooling this sized area. Knowing the importance of buying the correct size for the space helps too. It would not cool a floor in a home or a great room as it is far too small. But for a smaller room it can't be beat! Impressive work Frigidaire and if we ever need another I know that your appliances have again become top notch.

Wattage used is much higher than spec.

David12356789 8/25/2020

After researching for the lowest wattage 5000 BTU window air conditioner, I bought this one. Actual testing when I received it shows that uses 475 Watts instead of the 410 listed on the company's website. This is for an off-grid situation and every what is important since I'll be living off battery power. Phone calls into customer service was a complete waste of time as the customer service agents don't have anything in their standard Playbook to deal with my questions. On one phone call to customer service the agent claimed they would take my question up with the engineers and get back to me but it's been 3 weeks and no return phone call. So I called again and the second agent told me that what the first agent told me is not even possible so the first agent was just shining me on. Not happy

Sandan 8/13/2020

I purchased this unit, because my last one failed to cool.After reviewing and comparing this Model to others, I found Frigidaire had the best features and was a great value for the money. I have been using this for the past month and I'm more then satisfiedI've already made plans to replace my older unit with the same model .Great product excellent design easy to use.

Just what we needed

Schlau 8/11/2020

I bought this a month ago and we've been able to sleep much more comfortably at night! It's the perfect size for our small room with an unusually wide window - something that was hard to find an AC window kit that would be wide enough!

Great and Reliable Product

ayi257 8/11/2020

I bough this a month ago and it has been a great purchase. It cools the room as expected. My master room in NYC cools from 89-74 in about 4-5 hrs. The remote control tells you the temp in the room (plus or minus 3-5 degrees). When the room temp is close to the temp set on the AC, it auto shuts off for 10 minutes and will start again if the room gets hotter. Its also energy star product. It's not too loud. It's a good size and weight. Came with easy setup directions. I've bought another one for my room upstairs.

Gets the job done

Lady57 8/10/2020

Bought this for a small bedroom and it does the job. It has adjustable louvers so I can direct the airflow from side to side (not up and down though). I like the 'sleep' feature that will keep it at set temp for a period of time, and then allow the temp to go up a few degrees while I sleep. Having a remote control is a nice feature too. And so glad it is Energy Star.

I've had this for a month now, running about 18 hours a day, and it still works great, is nice and quiet, and the timer and remote are super convenient. Great deal for the price.

Excellent cooling capacity and efficiency

sborman 7/23/2020

I installed my new Frigidaire FFRE053WAE in a bathroom. It does a great job cooling the room and an adjacent dressing area. I like the fact that you can direct its output upwards so it does not blow directly on you. I also like the Eco function because it allows the air conditioner to rest between cooling cycles. The unit is a highly efficient Energy Star model that uses only a modest amount of power. I installed the air conditioner through the wall, which was quite challenging to do properly, as it is not designed as a through-wall unit, and there are no instructions for installing it that way. But I'm very happy with the final result, and it is very secure. In my opinion, Frigidaire should develop a through-wall air conditioner and sleeve of this same cooling capacity (5,000 BTU), a type of product that does not currently exist, as far as I know. Frigidaire should reduce the width of such a through-wall unit from the current 16-1/2 inches (for the FFRE053WAE or FFRE053WA1, without sleeve) to a total of 14 inches (with sleeve) so it would fit in a standard wall-stud space. Such a product would be unique in the market and might sell extremely well to people who need to air condition a small room and don't wish to sacrifice a window to do so.

Carton for Storage Has No Bottom. AC Fine

yogason 7/16/2020

Bought this AC a week ago. It gets the 12x12 room nicely cool.....but....Page 1 of Installation Instructions (all caps theirs): ™€œ ! NOTE: SAVE CARTON and INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. The carton is the best way to store unit in Winter.™€ Ok, makes sense. Only problem is that my carton came damaged with the bottom not attached and only the plastic strapping holding it together. Spoke twice to Home Depot and twice to Electrolux and still nobody is able to arrange for new box to be shipped to me. Each rep claimed they can™€™t help me and one tried to connect me to another rep and disconnected the call in the process. I wrote to an Electrolux email address provided to me yesterday and hoping I hear back. This is not brain surgery. A box can be arranged even if it comes from China. I own another Frigidaire AC, and it™€™s true: the best way to store in winter is in the original box. I™€™d hate to have to return the whole, well-functioning air conditioner just to get a new freakin™€™ box that has a bottom and all the right cushioning. I live in the city and storage space is tight. Having a proper box makes storing this AC unit possible. Really, I think they should be shipping this item in an additional outer shipping box rather than just using the packaging box as the only box, seeing that it can easily become damaged during the shipping process. But hey, what do I know? I™€™m only a Product Manager who deals with this all the time at another company in an unrelated industry. Come on Home Depot and Frigidaire/Electrolux. Step up your customer service please.
