  • Product Overview

    The Comfort-Aire RADS-81J Window Air Conditioner offers 8,000 BTUs of cooling power and a 10.8 energy efficiency ratio (EER), making this Energy Star-rated model efficient and powerful. Built to cool up to 350 square feet, the Comfort-Aire RADS-81J offers an Energy Saver mode, full-service remote control, and reusable air filter.

    5 Operating Modes

    The Comfort-Aire 8,000-BTU Window Air Conditioner is equipped with several operating modes that keep your home cool and comfortable.

    • Cool: This window AC processes 218 cubic feet of air per minute and uses 8,000 BTUs to efficiently cool spaces up to 350 square feet.
    • Fan: Use fan-only operation to prevent room stuffiness in cooler temperatures. This window AC is equipped with high, medium, and low speed settings and also features an automatic speed option that chooses a speed based on the ambient temperature.
    • Dry: In Dry mode, this AC serves as a dehumidifier to eliminate humidity as it cools your room. The RADS-81J extracts 41.6 pints of moisture per day and provides immediate comfort while conserving energy.
    • Automatic: When in Auto mode, this model automatically selects cooling or fan-only operation depending on the room’s ambient temperature.
    • Energy Saver: Energy Saver mode maintains a reasonable room temperature while you’re at work or out of town because it automatically stops the fan and compressor when your optimal temperature is reached, which also lowers your energy consumption.  

    Convenient and Energy-Efficient Features

    This model includes a full-service digital remote control that provides easy access to all of its features and lets you easily change modes or fan speeds. The reusable air filter is easy to remove and clean, saving you money on replacement filters and ensuring your AC runs efficiently. A Check Filter Indicator, located on the unit and remote control, notifies you when the air filter needs to be cleaned. You can also use the programmable timer to automatically turn this model on or off up to 24 hours in advance.

    Window Kit Included

    The Comfort-Aire 8,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner is equipped with all the tools you need for secure window installation. Its installation kit includes a top-mounting rail, vertical sash seal, accordion panels, and support brackets. It can be mounted in windows between 23 to 36 inches wide or through an outside wall.

    This is a 115-volt AC that uses a NEMA 5-15P plug type. The 3-prong face looks like this:
