All Friedrich Chill Series units are Energy Star qualified.
Designed with a “MoneySaver” function — used to decrease energy consumption by running the fan and AC motor simultaneously.
Running both lets the air conditioner run at slower speeds (therefore saving wattage).
Another feature is its quieter operation. Users confirm the Friedrich Chill Series runs 50-70% quieter than their previous window AC.
If you’re looking to save on electricity and want quiet operation (for sleeping?), this is the one you want.
The Friedrich Chill 10000 BTU is expensive, but a high-powered unit.
This Frigidaire 10000 BTU window AC is a “smart home” unit.

Available in multiple sizes — the 10000 BTU is the most popular because of its size versatility.

|FGRC0844S1||8,000 BTU||350 sq. ft.|
|FGRC1044T1||10,000 BTU||450 sq. ft.|

Each is Energy Star rated.
Users say it’s a little loud, but runs quietly when maintaining temperature.
Also comes with a “Sleep Mode” function for even quieter noise levels.
Downside is the higher price tag.

The mobile app also provides a lot more functionality than you’d get w/ a typical remote control.

The LG 10000 BTU window ac is available with or without WiFi (mobile app) functionality.
The Frigidaire FFRE103ZA1 is a compact 10000 BTU window air conditioner.
It was over-priced last year because it was a newer model, but has come down in price this year.
What makes it unique is its ability to maintain consistent room temperatures for long hours. Unlike other window-mounted air conditioners, they it does not constantly switch on/off all night.
For its size it is also one of the most energy efficient window air conditioners with EER rating of 12.2.
The downside is that it is a little louder than others on my list with decibels up to 59.
Personally I think it is one of the best 10000 BTU window air conditioner units for home offices or living rooms.
3 fan speeds, remote control, programmable timer, sleep mode + easy install
Buyers like its affordable price and consistent performance.
