Providing a range of convenient features, combined with highly efficient operation, this unit is a fantastic affordable alternative to some of the more up-market window-mounted units. Continue reading below for more information on this unit under a variety of different criteria.

 

Cooling Performance

The Midea MWA06CR71-E window-mounted air conditioner is capable of effectively cooling living spaces of up to 250 square feet, providing 6,000 BTUs of raw cooling power. These specifications make this unit the perfect choice for a small living space. This unit will also effectively carry out dehumidifying functions at the same time, however the specific figures relating to the extent to which this unit dehumidifies were not available at the time of this review.

 

Efficiency / Certifications

The Combined Energy Efficiency Ratio (CEER) of a product is an accurate measurement of how efficiently a product will perform during operation. This figure is obtained taking into account the energy consumed by the unit, and the output it provides. With a CEER rating of 12.1, this unit would be considered highly efficient.

Additionally, this unit benefits from being Energy Star certified. This means that the unit adheres to a set of strict guidelines set out by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding energy consumption. The result of this is the Midea MWA06CR71-E will save you a hefty sum of money on your upkeep bills, in the long-term.

Unfortunately, there was no further information available concerning any other certifications, which is a shame, as we would have liked to see a safety-related certification for this unit.

 

Convenience

A full-function wireless remote control enables the user to operate their device from anywhere in the room. This is especially convenient during those hot Summer days when getting up to change the settings on your air conditioner is the last thing you want to do. Additionally, Midea’s EasyTimer allows for planned operation, 24 hours in advance. Combine these features with the SleepWell function, which allows the device to operate without disturbing your sleep, and you have a unit that is exceptionally easy to use.

An Energy Saver Mode will save the user a hefty sum of cash over time, by allowing the unit to power-off automatically periodically, only powering back on if further cooling is required. Another feature we greatly enjoyed was this unit’s Auto Setting, which allows the unit to detect when temperatures in the room reach uncomfortable levels, then automatically powering on to re-establish a comfortable environment for you and your loved ones.

 

 

Design

Weighing approximately 45lbs, this unit is moderately heavy, and may prove too much for some users, in which case we strongly advise seeking assistance with transport or installation. Additionally, this product’s noise level registers between approximately 51.9dB and 56.4dB (A) depending on the setting it is operating on. This is relatively quiet, considering that the average human conversation usually registers at at approximately 60dB.

A 6.5ft. power cord is useful, potentially expanding the range of potential installation locations in your home.

Lastly, adjustable air louvers allow for a more even distribution of airflow throughout your living space.
