I am livid with Parkchester's policy. The reason it exists (the AC problem in particular) is because we have just been sucking it up and paying anyway or suffering in silence or on these boards. We need to get together and stop this madness...collectively. I absolutely feel like I have purchased a project apartment. Forget about helpful assistance from the service department? Why should we? Pay $900 plus over $100 installation for ONE type of AC when there are MANY that would suffice? We don't have to!!!!   We need to make them comply to our needs. This is serious and dangerous for all of us. WE have to do something about it as it does not affect them AT ALL.   Open to suggestions. Stay safe and healthy.

This is so ridiculous. I've been living here for 4 years, never gotten a ac bc I refused to pay $650 in total to get an ac that I could get for $300.00. It is just ridiculous and a rip off. However I really cant take another heat wave without one. I just called to that place on Morris Ave. $569.00 for the bedroom unit. Are u freaking serious?!?!?! that is just insane!!! And no credit cards just cash!!!

I can't believe I am reading posts from 2 years ago and this problem still exists...The parkchester website has the measurements listed, but the only ac I can find that is even close to that is $500!!

Apparently theres a place on Morris Park Ave that supposedly sell the air conditioners that fit the parkchester windows, united appliance i think its called phone number 718-829-9090, the bedroom one is $500 and the living room one is $800. i have been suffering as well cause i cant afford even the $500 one, plus the $100 installation fee. you shouldnt have to pay 600 for an air conditioner!!!!

one problem that i had when dealing with p.c. richards when looking into purchasing an air conditioner was that some of their sales people seemed more concerned with making a sale rather than helping me buy the correct air conditioner. for example: one guy insisted that a 7,500 btu condiotioner was the right one for my bedroon. now it specifically says on the flyer that parkchester hands out, " not exceeding 6,500 btu for bedrooms". this guy was adament about me buying the expensive (and incorrect) unit. like most people on this site, i too, threw up my hands in disgust and said forget it. i truly believe that p.c. richards, knowing that we parkchester residents have no other choice, since they are "the only game in town", are overcharging on units.

I am having the exact same problem.  ALL the Friedrich air conditioners - now and even 3 or 4 years ago when I researched it - that even come close to the J window specs (under 6500 BTU's) are either 12' or 14' high. 

Yet Parkchester indicated that they "found that the AC units manufactured by Friedrich are properly sized for the new windows."  But the specific criteria for the J window are  that it can be between 15' and 15.5' high and must be between 19.5'  and 20' wide. 

So I was looking at the Friedrich XQ06L10A and the XQ05L10A, but I never got, and now am afraid to because the office is confirming it really must be at least 15' high, and that this won't work.  Funny, last time I called some time back, a girl told me that because of the mounting materials, it would fit.  I was a bit leary then, and before you knew it the summer was over.  This time though, no such luck.  Their materials say Friedrich AC's work, but then all of the applicable Friedrich's are not tall enough.  So which is it??   When I asked Parkchester for guidance as to which specific Friedrich models work, they don't have any answers.  I asked again today, and was told they have installed some LG's and Samsungs, but she didn't know the models (and I can't even be sure they were installed into J windows).

Samsung's website was not user friendly at all.  I got so frustrated with their layout and search function based on Price Range in terms of "R's. ,000" (wt?) that I just closed the window.  (Couldn't they have search criteria in terms of BTU's or something?)

And when you go to LG's site, the only unit that matched the BTU limitation, the LP6000ER, has no real specs.  I always thought highly of LG's products, but if they can't be bothered to place simple DIMENSIONS somewhere in the specs and downloads on their own product website, I really have to think twice.

This is ridiculous.  I have lived here for several years, and began the search before, just got tired of worrying about it, and then soon enough, the summer would be over, so I never got one....but we just had a sweltering day yesterday, so I'm looking again.  It is soooo frustrating to have to suffer, and not be able to get any real guidance. 

So now I'm asking myself, "Is there really ANY AC that fits Parkchester's J window?"  Or is the lack of one something that was just conveniently left out... and we're left just renewing our leases, believing, expecting, even hoping that there actually is but we just haven't found it yet.  Hmmm.

Who knows?  Maybe the LG deserves a third look, but I'm too frustrated to bother with it right now.

Aarrrghhh!!!  This should never have been so difficult.   Maybe I need to call PC Richards or something.  Thanks for letting me vent about this grueling ordeal.
