We didn't know which air conditioner to get when our central air went out and the air conditioner repair man couldn't come out for two days. So, I researched **************** and found out that Kenmore is the most recommended brand. Then, I tried to find the highest btu's that would still take a 110 plug so that I would not need an electrician to come out and do any wiring. This model was the one we found. It cooled our 2000 sq foot home quickly. I am sure it is not designed to cool a house this large. However, we are using it that way until our central unit gets fixed. Also, it is right next to our TV in our living room and there is very little noise. Finally, there was no hassle in installing it. It has a 10.4 seer which makes it very energy efficient. The higher the seer number the more energy efficent it is. It is an energy star model. It says that it will cost $89 per year to run. That is probably not correct the way that we are currently using it to try to cool our whole house instead of just one room. However, when compared to other models, it was one of the most energy efficient models out there. 12,000 BTU is as high as you are going to get with a 110 plug and not having to call an electrician, so if you are looking to cool your house with an energy efficient quiet air conditioner, buy this model!!! 115 and 220 plugs will require an electrician if you don't know much about this kind of stuff. I wish someone else could have provided this much information in a review so I am hoping my review helps you if you are in a bind like we were.
It was HOT yesterday August 16. We have an 825 sq. ft. house: 3 bedrooms, kitchen, hall, livingroom, and one bath. We had an Amana AC 12k BTU: It lasted 11 years; and cooled all rooms to COLD at night and SUPER COOL in the blistering heat of the day (in Rialto CA, we have blistering heat!). We replaced it with a Hampton Bay 10k BTU which cooled to cold just as great since 1994 and died last week! We replaced it this Kenmore 12kBTU. They say it will cool 600 and something square feet... NOT TRUE! My whole house is just 825 sq ft. this Kenmore unit # 70121 just keeps the living room cool enough, and the rest of the rooms we had to use fans (3of them) to push the cooler air down the hall to the bedrooms, using one of them to push cool air into the kitchen (and its connected to the living room straight across from the Kenmore AC, about 17 feet away!). It does not really "condition" the air; if its muggy outside then you feel a little clammy or sweaty inside the house. Its says "cool cool cool" on the box; but it cools like a swamp cooler. Its a little loud. NOT what I expeced to get from a 12k BTU. You can't adjust the blower vents the direction YOU want them because of the stupid design (our previous AC's were easy and convenient to adjust). Buy this unit if your wanting to cool no larger than a small living room (say 15x15 ) and if you don't mind still feeling a little "sweaty" if its hotter than 98 degrees outside. I'm pretty sure we will be taking this thing back. I will never buy another Kenmore AC because its just like their washing machines; they went "down hill" too.

bought a total of three identical units...first was damaged...second the compressor was damaged and cool air was coming from the back...haven't installed the third...but I'm not expecting very much. When they brought the a/c in "pickup" they had it on the dolly side-ways. First thing the booklet tells you is not to put it side-ways because it affects the coolant.

Great unit - quiet and effective. Ordered online and picked up same day at local Sears. Unit is very good for the money and very light which helps with window mounting.

This replaced a 10-year-old, 15,000 BTU Kenmore with which I was pretty happy, and this new model is better in every way. It provided the expected cooling during a very hot and humid July and I seldom had to run at the full fan speed. At medium and high fans speeds it is not quiet, but the noise is only that of rushing air--there are no rattles, squeaks or rumbles. Air direction control is modest and the thermometer seems to read about 5 degrees low. Otherwise the operation is excellent. Most of my Kenmore A/Cs have lasted more than ten years. If this unit comes even close to that I will rate it as a VERY good buy
I purchased this ac one year ago yesterday to replace a 10,000 btu Kenmore that gave me many years of good service. This new ac keeps it cool on hot, humid days here in Oklahoma. The only draw back is not being able to direct the air flow exactly where I want it. The horizontal louvers are not the greatest, so I set a pedestal fan a few feet in front of it so I can direct the air into another room. I live in a 500 square foot garage apartment. It is 100? outside today and 70? here in my living room. That is good enough for me. Installation is a breeze and it is a lot quieter than the old one it replace. It is in my bedroom and never keeps me awake. I believe it is the best deal for the money.
