Emerson Quiet Kool 6,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner Product Review
Temperatures are over 90 degrees in the summer where I live and even hit 100 degrees from time to time. Regardless of the outside temperature, many of my guests prefer to sleep in cool or even chilly temperatures. Using central AC to cool down the whole house to that temperature is inefficient. A window air conditioner unit like the Emerson Quiet Kool 6,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner will keep your guests comfortable, reduce the load on your central air conditioning, and save you on your electric bill!
I have installed two Emerson Quiet Kool 6,000 BTU Window Air Conditioners in my home – one in each guest bedroom. Here’s my detailed product review!

Shipping and Packaging – 5 Stars
I ordered these Emerson window air conditioners from Amazon and they were delivered super fast even though they weren’t an Amazon Prime (Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial) product at the time I ordered! They are in compact boxes about the size of a large microwave. The air conditioner and the accessory pieces are packaged very well and unboxed in excellent condition. As I’ve mentioned before, if you even have a damaged product, contact Amazon right away and get it resolved!
This was the first time I’d ever assembled and installed a window air conditioning unit. There are three pieces that need to be attached to the unit once it is unboxed. First, a bar screws into the top of the air conditioner. This is super easy. The other two pieces are the accordion style side panels that are used to extend and fill the gap in the window once the unit is in position. While the pieces fit together nicely, the instructions are not easy to understand and the pictures are borderline terrible. That being said, I was able to figure it out eventually.
Now it is time to put the unit in the window. The unit is heavy in the back, so when placing it in the window, make sure to have a firm grasp on it so it won’t fall out of the window and ruin your day. You’ll need to then close the window down on top of the unit and it will nest in the top piece you previously attached. Once you’ve done this, all you’ll need to do is screw the unit into the window frame and install some foam insulation. It comes with a thin foam style tape, but I found this tape to be hard to peel off in one piece and extremely difficult to handle. I just used blue painters tape instead.
It took me about 20 minutes to install the first unit and 10 minutes to install the second one once I figured out all I needed to do.
Controls – 5 Stars
The Emerson Quiet Kool is simple and intuitive to control. The buttons on the front of the panel are very easy to use and the up and down arrows make it simple to choose the exact temperature you want. The digital temperature display is great and a major improvement over other window air conditioner units that only have a dial.
This unit also comes with a remote control! Too lazy to get out of bed to change the temperature? Just use the remote!
Cooling – 4.5 Stars
This air conditioning unit cools! Within just a few seconds of turning it on there was a nice cool breeze refreshing the entire room. It does make some noise and the noise levels change as it varies its output. I don’t think the noise is really any better or worse than other window air conditioner units, but I did notice it.
Overall Rating – 4 Stars
From a performance standpoint, the Emerson Quiet Kool 6,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner is top notch! Cools with confidence and is easy to control. The hurdle with this product is the assembly and installation. Once you’ve accomplished this, sit back and enjoy the cool! Your Airbnb guests will certainly appreciate it!
