Goldstar GWHD5000 Thru-Wall/Window Air Conditioner

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

I purchased the Goldstar GWHD5000 as an economical way to cool my upstairs bedroom in the hot summer. It is light and very easy to install, with no need to attach extra hardware to your home. This machine is completely no-frills, with a bare bones look and protruding, somewhat unattractive face. There is no digital readout like on other window air conditioners; instead there is a dial for controlling how cool you want your room, a switch to select low or hi fan speed, and a power switch. One of the options on the cooling dial is to run the fan only, without the air conditioning option. There is no remote control.

This unit, while simple, does get the job done every time. It very rapidly cools the room and lowers the humidity. This unit can take a small to medium sized room from humid and hot to exceedingly cool and comfortable in less than ten minutes. With no thermostat on the machine, it will run however it is set until you manually change the setting or turn it off. This means that there have many nights when I have gotten out of bed to turn the machine down or off because I was too cold. It is also loud and tends to rattle a bit.

If you want a machine you can rely upon to keep a room cool in the hot weather without fail and you don't want to spend a lot of money, this is definitely a machine to consider. If you are looking for extra options such as a thermostat, a quiet motor, push button controls, or a remote control, you may want to select a different unit.
