Hi, I have some questions about window air conditioners. My old Kenmore just went bad, so I bought a new LG 8,000 btu unit from Home Depot (Model # LW8011ER). I installed it and it seems to be working fine so far, and cools very well. I chose it over Frigidaire because I had heard LG was good and I liked the 5 year warranty... HVAC people, Did I make a good choice? Also, I noticed that inside the unit, there is a plate of styrofoam screwed in behind the blower fan, where the unit borders the outside air. Is this a reliable material? Will it hold up ok? What exactly is it? The unit is pretty powerful and quiet overall...I just wanted a model I could install and that will last me for 5-10 years and not have to worry about it. I also like that it drains water well which I have heard Frigidaires did not. Id just like some insight about the styrofoam piece inside the unit, and what it is for. Thanks.
