Most window A/C units over 8K may have secondary sensors.

LG (except Dual Inverter Models) and Haier window A/Cs DO NOT have secondary sensors.

Frigidaire, Arctic King, Gree, Kelvinator and some Danby window A/Cs have a minimum ON cycle time set from the factory; using an over-sized window A/C from one of these brands may lead you to
experience colder than set temperatures or ice ups. Please use the recommended size A/C.
