LG LW8015ER Review

Users praise LG's 8,000-BTU model for its cooling performance, quality, and efficiency. It's Energy Star qualified and boasts features such as auto restart after a power failure.

The 8,000-BTU LG LW8015ER (starting at $239, Amazon), a 2015 model, is still trickling onto retail shelves. However, its indistinguishable predecessors (which differ in little more than model number) leave a legacy of positive feedback. LG LW8014ER reviews on the Home Depot website remark on the ease of installing the 2014 version, the variety of settings, and the stylish appearance. In a review of an older model on the manufacturer's website, one user reports that the unit put a 12,000-BTU air conditioner to shame. The manufacturer recommends this AC for spaces up to 340 square feet. At 8,000 BTUs, the LG LW8015ER is powerful enough that gripes about noise do pop up in reviews, but we found that to be true with any air conditioner this size.

A couple of consumers mention in reviews that they've owned similar LG units for five years and counting, and other reviewers comment on the high quality of the construction. The LG LW8015ER is an Energy Star-qualified unit with an energy-efficiency ratio of 11.3 and a CEER of 11.2. It features auto restart after power outages, energy-saver mode, and a 24-hour timer. Users can remotely control the temperature, timer, and fan speed. One disappointment is the lack of a sleep mode on this air conditioner.

Where to buy

Buy it from Sears or Amazon.

The LG LW8015ER is backed by a one-year warranty on parts and labor. Despite a scarcity of reviews for the current model, LG's 8,000-BTU air conditioner remains a smart purchase.
