Summertime means heat. How much heat depends on where you live. In some places, especially in the northern United States, heat is 70s and 80s. Farther south, though, things can get into the 90s or 100s. As I sit down to write this, temperatures in parts of the Midwest are projected to go over 100 degrees Fahrenheit for the first time in a few years. When that happens, air conditioning isn’t just about comfort: it’s about safety, too.

A large central air conditioner is a popular option for a home, but it isn’t always practical. They can be expensive to buy and to repair, and they don’t always make sense in some places, either because the dwelling is small, or infrequently used, or because the local temperature doesn’t get that high. In those instances, a portable air conditioner can make sense.

Over the last several years, Aldi has sold different air conditioning units in the early summer as limited-time Aldi Finds. Here’s a look at one of them.

What We Know:

The 2021 model.

In 2023, the Easy Home Window Unit (Product Code: 822651 in 2023; Product Code 805008 in previous years) runs $129.99. That’s less than the $149.99 it went for in 2022. It also cost $129.99 in 2021 and $99.99 in 2019. It is still considerably less than most other 5000 BTU air conditioners out there. Aldi doesn’t specify who manufactures the 2023 model, but it looks similar to this one from Amana.

The 2021 model came with a 1-year warranty serviced by Eurocentra, a common Aldi warranty company. Aldi has not published information about whether the 2023 model has a warranty.

On the feature front, here’s more information, according to Aldi:

  • Cools up to 150 square feet
  • 2 cooling settings: low and high
  • Adjustable thermostat
  • 2-way air direction
  • Loss of power protection with auto restart
  • Removable and reusable, easy access washable air filter
  • Fits windows 23″–34″ W x 14.5″ H
  • 5,000 BTU
  • Includes quick installation kit

The 2021 model.

What We Don’t Know:

We haven’t tried out this unit, although we’ve had shoppers offer their thoughts up on the previous versions of the unit, which were made by a different manufacturer. Our goal for open thread posts like this is to offer a space for other people to share about their experiences with a product.

Do you have experience with this unit? Let us know in the comments.

  1. Would the kit for install include the top bracket to rest against the window and the side accordion sliding panels for width sizing? Also for service if needed how is it handled? Return to store or ship? I imagine shipping would be cost prohibitive so so they pay? Lastly your guess on it being the Amana brand is that based on past appliances made for Aldi?
    Thanks much. Keith.

  2. I love ALDI so much that it’s probably unhealthy at this point. THAT stated, and to be completely clear, ZERO evidence/facts to back this statement up, I can’t IMAGINE buying an AC from there is a good thing. Great deals on Salsa, YES! Major appliance for home comfort during a heatwave? Sorry, but NO!

  3. Just for folks FYI. I contacted Aldi and for this particular product they don’t offer service. That means your recipe is really important to keep. They will refund your money for the entire 1 year warranty.
    After that you will need to find another source for service.

    • That shouldn’t matter, as everything they sell (I’m thinking this a/c included) is completely returnable with receipt. Not only that, paying to repair is not smart since replacement with low cost air conditioners such as this are as much or more expensive. So, disposable unfortunately.

  4. Got the last one at my local ALDI for $37.49 today.

    • That’s a great deal! We’ve got a post coming soon about all the current deep discounts at Aldi and why we’re seeing so many bargains right now.

    • What a deal! Mine was $47 purchased a few weeks ago also. How do you like it? Haven’t opened mine yet but the 2017 one I bought for$99 clearance is awesome plus it has the best backlit remote with remote temp sensing I’ve ever seen.

  5. The person who said they wouldn’t buy appliances from Aldi…. We still have and it works a Avion Computer we bought from Aldi 30 years ago. It still works well, our young grandsons use it! So yes I would buy a air conditioner from Aldi!

  6. I bought one for my 12 x 16 work shed last year. It works great and completely cools it down in a few minutes. I paid 120.00 last year. I’m happy with it.
