For a cost-effective way to cool down the average room that’s around 340 square feet in total area, a very efficient 8,000 BTU air conditioner should do the job. Of course, if other factors demand additional cooling power, such as a sunny exposure, high ceilings or a kitchen in or adjacent to the room, you probably need another 1000 BTUs, or use the unit on a smaller room (e.g., 150-250 square feet in size).

One good option in the 8,000 BTU category is the LG LW8012ER Energy Star 8,000 BTU Window-Mounted Air Conditioner with Remote Control.

First off, this is a very efficient and powerful air conditioner for its BTU rating, with an Energy Efficiency Rating (“EER”) of 10.8. Generally, EER ratings range from 8 to 11.5, with a score over 10 being very good. As such, the LG LW8012ER’s 10.8 EER means that it’s cost-effective to run and will save you money in the form of reduced electricity charges compared to less-efficient units.

In addition, this AC unit runs quietly, with an operational noise level of only 54 decibels. This is quieter than the sound typically made during normal conversation, and slightly louder than whispering. Quiet operation is a very important feature, especially if need to sleep in the room you are cooling.

Moreover, the LW8012ER comes with a good set of features. It has 3 cooling fan speeds; an auto cool setting; 4-way air direction for good air flow; auto restart; a 24-hour programmable timer; a 2.2 pint/hour dehumidifier; and a very helpful remote control, which can pretty much command all the functionality of this unit. This AC unit is also fairly stylish, with a nicely-laid out control panel and digital display.

As far as consumer reactions to this unit, they are good, averaging 4-star. Purchasers commonly report high satisfaction with this model’s strong cooling power, airflow and quiet compressor. The only consistent complaints we could find that lowered its ratings somewhat were that the fan can rattle at times and that some units arrived damaged. Beyond these isolated issues, however, reviewers consistently noted very high satisfaction with the LW8012ER’s performance.

Overall, we like the LG LW8012ER 8,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner for delivering good power while remaining energy efficient and quiet. We also like its relatively good feature set and nice remote control for its price range. In our opinion, however, although it’s reported to cover an area of 340 square feet, this is at the very outside of its range. If your room gets any period of direct sunlight, has ceilings over 8 feet, or is used to cook/heat food, 150-250 square feet (depending on how many of these factors apply) is a more realistic coverage area.
