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.

Saved the day when the temp got over 110 degrees. Has multiple settings, so you can put it on energy saver when it is not as hot out. I would give it 5 stars if it weren't so noisy. Still has the noise factor that we had when we were kids. I would still say that if your choice is a window air conditioner, this is a great choice.
We were looking to replace a 24-year old 12K GE slide in window unit that required metal sleeve and bracing. This Kenmore was an excellent choice for replacement. Quiet, efficient, smaller yet more powerful. We will be able to store this one in winter, making our living area more 'winter snug.' Energy Star raring is a plus. The remote control is perfect and the auto settings make it easy on the electric bill.
This Kenmore unit is just what I needed. I use it in the toughest room in my home to cool, the kitchen. The energy efficient mode makes it to where it kicks on just when it is needed and it has effectively removed the high humidity from my entire house. I have always found Kenmore to be reliable.
Quieter than I expected. Cools down a large area. The timer works great as you can set it up to turn on and cool the room before you arrive at home from work~
This unit runs fairly quietly for its size. I did not expect it to be as quiet as a 5,000btu unit and it is not. But it quickly cools my kitchen as well as a bathroom, office, and 15x18 dining room with a vaulted ceiling. It keeps the temperature fairly consistent, as well. It does not seem to affect the power bill very severely. Runs on a normal 15 amp circuit.
This is a great A/C and I am extrememly happy with it. I put it in my dining room window and it does that room, the kitchen and our parlor. I don't need to run my parlor a/c at all if I don't want to. Its powerful and does an excellent job.
Nice unit, easy to install. Info on front is kinda small and dark but includes a small remote. Puts out a lot of water so put it where the dripping will not be an issue.

I was concerned this unit would be too small for my 25' x 18' room because it has 18' high ceiling. I am very impressed! It cools it down nicely and has even kept the adjoining kitchen cooler. Installation was easy for myself and teenage daughter. Not sure on energy cost yet as I have not yet received my bill. It's a little loud, but, no more than any other unit. I'm very happy with this purchase.
Researching about which AC to buy online can be a tedious, frustrating process. I finally made a decision on this unit based on positive reviews and good past experiences with Kenmore AC units, and I'm very happy I did. This AC is very powerful, pretty quiet for an AC this size, reasonably priced, good looking, easy to install, and is the biggest you can get without having a special plug installed by an electrician. I also have to say that however they designed this thing, it just pours out some nice clean cool air with ease. I'm the type of guy who does a lot of research before making a big purchase to make sure it's exactly what I'm looking for and the best quality for the money I'm spending. I'm very content with this AC unit. Got this delivered via UPS with no issues. Works great, and I've been enjoying an icebox where my living room used to be. It does indeed cool multiple rooms and I haven't even put it lower than 70. (Usually stays on 72) I can't even imagine this set to the 60's, it'd feel like a freezer. Love this AC unit. Remote works well from across the room. The side flaps slide in perfectly and leave no spaces. Comes with some foam insulation for the window. Installed this by myself in about 10 minutes, my girlfriend only had to push down the window while I placed it on the window frame. (Unit weighs about 75 Lbs) Overall I'm very impressed and have no negatives to report. I would buy another one of these if I had to. 5-stars.
