The GE AJCQ10ACG is no longer widely available as it has been discontinued. If you're on the lookout for a better alternative, head to our best thru-wall air conditioners guide. 

This in-wall AC unit has 10,200 BTU of power, sot it is suitable for cooling a room of up to 450 square feet. Also, with the maximum airflow of 270 cubic feet per minute, you should feel the effects of the air conditioner fairly quickly. There are three fan speeds, and you can run the fan by itself without cooling the air.

The unit can remove up to 2.7 pints of moisture from the air per hour, which is handy if you live in a humid area. However, it doesn’t have a built-in dehumidifying mode, so you need to run the AC in a cooling mode to clear moisture from the air.

This wall-mounted AC unit has an estimated yearly energy cost of $86 – one of the lowest in our review. Only the Keystone KSTAT10-2C and the Koldfront WTC8001W have lower cost estimates, at $85 and $75 respectively.

The GE AJCQ10ACG has an above average Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) of 10.7, and it is certified by Energy Star and the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM). In addition, the unit uses chlorine-free refrigerant, which is more environmentally friendly than older types.

You can adjust the air conditioner’s settings from anywhere in the room with its remote control, which has a range of up to 21 feet. A helpful programmable timer lets you set the unit to automatically turn on at a specific time.

The unit’s fan-only mode creates a comfortable breeze without cooling the air. It also has an energy-saving mode that cycles the compressor and fan on and off together – when the room reaches your desired temperature, they turn off and only come back on when the temperature rises above your desired range.

This GE through-the-wall air conditioner doesn’t have a sleep mode, which allows the temperature to slowly rise by a few degrees overnight to save energy. It’s also missing an automatic restart, so you must remember to turn it back on after a power outage.

The unit has four-way directional louvers, so you can direct air where you want it in the room. However, the louvres don’t oscillate, a feature that distributes air more effectively. This AC’s filter is located in the front and is washable.

GE includes a one-year general appliance warranty and a five-year compressor warranty with the AJCQ10ACG. If you have questions, you can access the user manual and FAQs on the company’s website. In addition, you can contact a customer service representative through email or live chat.

The GE AJCQ10ACG wall air conditioner is energy efficient and powerful enough to cool rooms up to 450 square feet. It removes a decent amount of moisture from the air, which can make you feel cooler on sultry days. Though it doesn’t have a sleep mode or an automatic restart feature, you can adjust the units fan speed and louvers as well as set a programmable timer.

The GE AJCQ10ACG wall air conditioner gives you good energy efficiency and cooling power for rooms of approximately 450 square feet. It removes a decent amount of moisture in the air, which can give you an overall sense of feeling cooler on sultry days. Though it lacks a sleep mode and automatic restart after power loss, this AC has customizable fan speeds and directional louvers as well as a programmable timer to help keep you cool.
