This window unit is currently the best wifi air conditioner on the market (in addition to being one of the best LG air conditioner models! With a cooling power of 10,000 BTU, a fair price tag of $389.62 (you can get a used model for even less), and a variety of smart control options, this window AC could be the perfect replacement for your current unit!\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - LG LW1017ERSM\r\nIn this LG LW1017ERSM review we\u2019ll go over the advantages of this older, wi-fi controllable air conditioner From its rating of 10,000 BTU (capable of cooling rooms up to 450 sq ft) to its integrated LG ThinQ, what\u2019s not to love?\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThese window air conditioners are rated for 10,000 BTU, & are capable of adequately cooling rooms up to 450 sq ft in size (for 1,000 sq ft of cooling power, check out the LG LW1816ER). The air conditioners have 3 different cooling\/fan speeds and feature 4-way air deflection so you can easily cool specific parts of your room. Unfortunately, they are a little louder than other models, producing up to 55 dB of noise inside, & 63 dB outside.\r\nEnergy Efficiency\r\nThe LG LW1017ERSM window air conditioner earned an Energy Star rating of 12.0. LG projects the yearly cost of operating the unit to be $81, which is a little bit below the\r\naverage rating. Annual operating costs for similar models range from $65 to $127, so while the LW1017ERSM isn\u2019t the most efficient model around, it\u2019s still pretty good. That said, it is important to remember that the $81 is an estimate, so your electric bill may be higher or lower depending on how much you use the device.\r\nFiltration\r\nLike many other LG air conditioners, this model has a removable\/washable air filter. It\u2019s easy to remove the filter because it just slides out of the side of the unit. Thankfully, this model includes a \u201cCheck Filter\u201d light that alerts you when the air conditioner needs to be changed, so you won\u2019t have to check it manually (although it\u2019s still a good idea!). The light is located on the upper right-hand side of the device next to the display screen above the control buttons.\r\nDurability\r\nLike most window models, this AC is made of plastic and metal (if you\u2019re looking for a portable mode, check out the LG LP1419IVSM!). Most customers seem to be happy with it (based on its current rating of 4.5 out of 5-stars based on 6,386 Amazon reviews), but a few have reported it failing upon arrival. If this happens, make sure to contact customer service right away, because the warranty (which covers both parts & labor) only lasts for one year.\r\nValue\r\nFor $389.62 you can pick up this AC unit (a cheaper alternative is the LG LP0818WNR). If you\u2019d like to save some money, there are also used versions available starting at $302.86. Both options come with free delivery via Amazon; sadly, returns are not free. The unit comes with a one-year manufacturer\u2019s warranty that covers parts & labor. However, if you\u2019d like more protection you can also buy a 3-year protection plan for $33.99 or a 4-year plan for $44.99.\r\nLG LW1017ERSM Wrap Up\r\nThe LG LW1017ERSM is a unit we would recommend! For less than $400 you get 10,000 BTU of cooling power with wifi control via ThinQ. While it would have been nice if the unit weighed less, a heavy weight is, unfortunately, a common occurrence among window units, so we can\u2019t fault the LW1017ERSM too much. Still, if you\u2019re looking for a quiet wifi-controllable unit for a large room or small apartment, you can\u2019t go wrong with this unit!
