Pros / The SPT WA-6022S features a dry setting, which is great for humid climates.
Cons / The manufacturer warranty covers this product for just one year.
Verdict / This unit is compact but still includes numerous features and settings that combine for impressive energy efficiency.
The SPT WA-6022S is an energy-efficient and compact window air conditioner. This unit provides many settings and modes to easily maintain a comfortable temperature and humidity level in your room. It can cool a room up to 250 square feet and boasts a high energy efficiency rating (EER).
This window AC unit features 6,000 British thermal units (Btu), which is enough to cool a room up to 250 square feet in size. The more Btu a product has, the larger the area it can cool, so if you have a larger room you will want to consider a different unit. If saving energy and keeping your costs low is important to you, this SPT product is a good option. It is an Energy Star qualified device and has an EER of 11.2. That only ties it for fourth in our comparison, but it is still considered a good EER – all of the best window air conditioners have a score of 10 or greater.
We evaluated the estimated energy cost for using this device eight hours a day for a three-month period, about the length of an average summer. This product’s estimated cost was $46.29, which is comparable with our high-ranked products.
The features and settings on this window air conditioner met our full expectations. There is a remote control on the device you can use to choose between the different settings. You can also make the same adjustments on a display panel located on the exterior of the unit.
This window air conditioner has three fan settings which allow you to run the fan without the compressor, so the unit can cool down your room using very little energy. The cool setting uses both the fan and the compressor and is designed to lower the temperature in the room.
In addition, there is a dry setting that removes excess moisture from the room, as well as auto, sleep and energy-saving settings. This product also features an auto start, so if the power supply to the unit is interrupted, the device powers up and resumes where it left off when electricity is restored.
The design of the SPT WA-60225 is similar to many of our high-ranking products. It is compact – approximately 13 inches tall, 18 inches wide and 15 inches long. It also weighs just 45 pounds. This is small when compared to many similar window AC units. Several other products we reviewed weigh 50 pounds or more and take up much more space.
A one-year manufacturer’s warranty comes with this product. Many similar products offer at least a five-year warranty on the room AC unit’s compressor, which makes this SPT warranty a little disappointing.
If you do need to talk to a company representative, you can contact SPT using email or telephone. There is also a user manual available online. However, there is no live chat support available from SPT, and there is not a FAQs section on the company website.
