LG LWHD1200R window A/C - LOUD!

Hello,

My apartment has the LWHD1200R air conditioner. It works well, but is so loud! It can be hard to find information on this without being redirected to the newer LG LW1216ER, I guess because they're nearly the same with the latter being newer.

But here's the AC info on the official site: https://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-LWHD1200R

Is there anything I can do? Is there a quieter AC on the market that is really much quieter? It comes through the wall and so it's fit for that.

Thanks,

Adrien

It's a 12k BTU window unit so basically it is what it is. They do make quieter units.
Friedrich units were always quiet but they were a bit more expensive.

Thanks! Oh yeah, the window units have everything together, so there's only so much that can be done I imagine, even with the units you mention.

Some units have smaller cooling areas so they need to run the fan at a higher speed and that can create noise.
