LG LW1017ERSM Review.
The new LG WiFi window units are an expansion of their Energy Star Series.
As smart window air conditioners, they connect to your home WiFi — once connected you can control them from anywhere using the LG mobile app.
Buyers love that they’re able to change cooling + room temp without having to get up (or finding the remote control).
LG WiFi window units are available in three sizes:
|LG Energy Star AC||Cooling Power||Room Size||Noise Level|
|LW8017ERSM||8,000 BTU||350 sq. ft.||≤ 54 dB|
|LW1017ERSM||10,000 BTU||450 sq. ft.||≤ 53 dB|
|LW1217ERSM||12,000 BTU||550 sq. ft.||≤ 52 dB|
Each has an Energy Star Rating and 12.1 energy efficiency ratio (EER).
Using the new Energy Saver function, it’s able to run continuously on low speed while maintaining room temp — this also helps reduce noise, and helps to keep it whisper quiet.
Noise Level (dB): 54 decibels
For this review I’ll focus on the most popular unit – LG LW1017ERSM.
As a 10,000 BTU unit, it’s very versatile — the ideal size for most residential rooms.
Lots of buyers say its great as a bedroom window air conditioner because of its quiet operation and ability to cool rooms quickly.

If you forget to turn off the AC before leaving for work or school, no prob!
Open the app and simply click “TURN OFF” — having the ability to deactivate remotely makes it super energy efficient.
LG Wi-Fi window air conditioners also work with Alexa or Google Home — voice commands are even easier than using a mobile app!
The downside is that the price is more expensive.

Equipped w/ the newest technology it’s expected to be a top seller in 2020.

LG LW1017ERSM Review:
With 10,000 BTU, the LG WiFi window units offer smart control for a reasonable price.
It runs quieter than most at only 52 decibels on low settings.
You’ll also love the voice activation controls — especially if using as a bedroom window ac unit.
A major perk is being able to control it remotely w/ the mobile app or voice controls. (a remote control is also included).
For an affordable price the LG 10000 BTU WiFi air conditioner is a nice luxury.
