LG LW8017ERSM Air Conditioners are among the best LG Air Conditioner simply for their amazing speed at cooling a room. While it may not be as powerful as other models, it is faster and, after all, wouldn\u2019t you want to be cooled down faster? This speed does make it noisier than most though, so be aware of that.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - LG LW8017ERSM\r\nThe LG LW8017ERSM is a versatile, powerful, and energy efficient fan capable of cooling a medium-sized room in no time flat and removing moisture from that room as well at a rate of 2.2 pints an hour! Technologically-infused, the fan is also compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant so you don\u2019t even need to leave your sofa to control it.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nLG LW8017ERSM Window AC Units can move air quite capably. Able to circulate more than 220 cubic feet per minute around a room, which is more than other AC units we\u2019ve seen so far, with 8,000 BTU\u2019s of power. It may not be the most powerful, but it can cool a 17x20 foot room quickly. Make sure to check out the LG LW1017ERSM if BTU\u2019s are your go-to standard.\r\nEnergy Efficiency\r\nLG LW8017ERSM Window Air Conditioners has an excellent energy efficiency ratio of 12.1. It\u2019s also Energy Star certified, which is always a good sign. However, bear in mind that because the fan is so powerful it will also cost more to run. Despite being a mid-range AC Unit, some estimates place the annual cost of running the air conditioner at $60.00\r\nFiltration\r\nThe LG LW8017ERSM Window Unit removes more moisture from the air than most of its competitors and even fellow LG products, like the LG LW1816ER. The amount it removes is rated at 2.2 pints an hour. Very impressive, especially if you live in an area where summers are very humid. Further, the dehumidify option allows you to get rid of moisture without cooling the room.\r\nDurability\r\nOne of the biggest drawbacks of the LG LW8017ERSM is its weight. At almost 60 pounds, it\u2019s one of the heavier models we\u2019ve reviewed. Once you set it somewhere you\u2019ll have a hard time picking it up and moving it. If portability is what you\u2019re after, check out the LG LP1419IVSM. However, this heaviness can add to the durability of the fan by making it stay firmly in place with jiggling even at the highest fan speeds.\r\nValue\r\nThe LG LW8017ERSM comes with a stylish remote control so you can control the fan and all it\u2019s features without having to walk up to it. Because it can also connect via wi fi, you also have the option of controlling it with the LG ThinQ App or even with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant! It\u2019s, unfortunately, a bit on the noisy side, but that\u2019s expected with fans of this power.\r\nLG LW8017ERSM Wrap Up\r\nThe LG LW8017ERSM is a heavy unit, so don\u2019t think you can move it from room to room as you travel, and will cost slightly more to run per year. But at $60, it\u2019s still more than an acceptable price. Just think about how fast you\u2019ll be cooled down during those hot 100 degree days, more when you add in the humidity, and that $60 will seem worth it.
