Introducing the first ever U-shaped Inverter Window Air Conditioner that allows you to open or close your window while the unit is installed. The innovative design makes installation very easy, and the ability to close the window isolates the noise outside making it ultra quiet. The 12,000 BTU air conditioner covers approximately 550 sq ft.

  • Ultra Quiet

    The U-shaped design blocks the noise coming from the compressor outside.

  • Quick & Easy Installation

    Includes a quick-snap bracket, and can be installed in 3 simple steps.

  • Long-distance Airflow up to 20 feet

    The strong airflow allows you to feel the cold air up to 20 feet away.

      I like the aesthetic of it, and with the window closed it's super quiet when on low fan speed, almost inaudible. However, there's no way to force it to run on max. You can turn it down to 60, but the inverter always leans toward being too efficient and it never adequately cools my 350sqft place. It rarely uses max power, only when the sun is hitting it and it's over 90 out does it work at max. Right now it's 72 and cloudy outside but 75 inside, and it's only drawing 1/3rd of the power it's capable of. It does have the high pitched whine that others have mentioned, but my window and the fan noise seems to block most of it. It's actually a really loud whine if you're outside with it, I imagine my neighbors enjoy it. I have to turn off my AC if I want to hang out on my patio.

      I love my 12000 btu Midea U AC. I bought it to use in my camp as it hiad a high efficiency rating and I am off grid. I had been using two 2000 watt inverter generators to run my fridge and small (6000 btu) older style ac unit at my camp as if I used 1 the generatorwould kick out at times due to overload when both were running. Since I bought the Midea U 12000 btu unit I use 1 2000 watt generator and have never had it kick out with both the fridge and ac on it. In fact I run it on eco mode and it barely ramps up just for a second or 2 when either the fridge or ac compressor initializes. I get 10 hours of run time off from a single gallon on fuel. Did I mention I use this to cool down my whole camp instead of just one small room with the old ac we were using! Oh and it still powers my lights and tv etc... Yeah this ac rocks so I bought another for my house in November for the up coming summer months 7 months away.... I then bought another in march for my moms house to beat the rush of summer back orders.....I love, not like this ac unit! They are awesome for my needs! I will be buying another for a rental I have sooner rather than later. No hesitation.

      Awesome is cooling 1000sqft of a 1400 sqft house at 77 degrees . I have the main ac set at 77 so the main ac is only coming on 20% of the time saving me 80% off my main ac unit In dollars amount $200.00 a month:) . We also drilled a 1/8 hole in the bottom back corner so it holds zero water making any mold issues gone!

      I am writing this later then I wanted to because I hurt my hip and couldn't place air conditioner sooner but happy to review today. I love this quiet air conditioner. I have never seen one where you can open window after it is placed but with the bracket it makes it possible. It also has a remote and works with smartphones too. You won't be disappointed it works wonderfully.

      This design is genius!!! The U design allows for the window to close with a 5 inch opening which is awesome. Also this type of shape lets you open and close the window instead of being stuck in one position for the entire summer. It is a very streamlined looking air conditioner that looks great in any room. It was extremely effective in keeping the space cool. The air smelled fresh and was at a consistent cool. It is not very loud, just a comforting hum. Will be getting these for other rooms that need a cooling boost.

      This is a great window air conditioner unit, it was easy to get installed. I love that I am able to keep the window closed to keep the bugs out. It came with all kinds of insulation blocks to put in any cracks, it keeps the heat out. This AC unit cools everything down so quickly!

      I love how easily the unit fits on the window sill and the window closes between the unit. It's a great fit and cools so well. It cools the room down so quickly and is lasting. I'm so glad to have this, especially with the heat wave we're expecting next week!!

      My Midea 12,000 BTU U-Shaped Air Conditioner is the best. We have had a 2 or 3 air conditioners in the past and this is the best so far. I love that it has smart controls and a flap to close when not in use. The air is very cold and the sound is very low since most of the air conditioner is outside of the window.

      This air conditioner has a unique shape compared to most others out there. We found the installation a little bit tricky but eventually got it right. There are many different options to this model. It also is very quiet which is wonderful.
