The Kenmore 12,000 BTU Air Conditioner is quiet and powerful.

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.

12000 btu a/c
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.

Working great from the moment we installed them.

Had our old kenmore air conditioners for 20 years. Never did we have a cooling problem with them. Decided to go with kenmore again hopefully will get longevity out of these also. Bought a 12,000 and a 8,000. One for the master bedroom, other for living room.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best A/C unit I have owned!

Bought this unit a little over a month ago. I live in a raised ranch and this unit cools the entire upstairs including the bedrooms of the doors are open. I recently just did the attic and replaced the insulation which helps. But this unit cools the house and upstairs instantly with no hesitation! Great machine and great price, especially when it cools up to 640 square footage.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Keeping our home cool

This A/C was so easy to install and I was so happy that it fit my narrow window. The performance is great and between the bigger one purchased about a month ago and this one I now have a cool home. Our house is really old and has draft problems but very satisfied with the two Kenmore a/c's from Sears. The extended warranty was purchased on both units just in case. It's so wonderful to have cool air again; the central unit just gave out and these a/c's definitely are meeting the need...Thanks Sears & Kenmore!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great

I purchased this air conditioner a few days ago after reading "Praise" report here on line. Try this is a great air conditioner. Our central air went up and need to replace unit. Was looking for something to cool our downstairs which is roughly 1000 square footage, after my son put it in we noticed the difference within a few munutes. We were cold and temp was only put on 70. We are very pleased with this purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great unit

The unit was really easy to install and setup. I have it cooling about 750 square feet with the help of a fan. I was surprised it really does cool off multiple rooms like it advertises.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore Room Air Conditioner

I had someone install the air conditioner and after we turned it on, it didn't take long before nice, cool air was coming out. I like the digital display and the remote. I just haven't been able to use it because of all our cool and rainy days.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
