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.

Reviewers may have received a benefit, like a sweepstakes entry or rewards program points, in exchange for writing a review.
Those benefits were not conditioned on the positive or negative content of the review.



Purchased in June 2015 with the recommended bracket to support the a/c unit. Sales rep informed me this type of a/c is compatible with sliding Windows. Paid for installation through Sears and the installer informed me at the end of the season I could remove it from the window and reinstall it the next year. The a/c unit worked well but I have to agree it is quite loud. At the end of the season I removed the unit with the help of my son, unfortunately, the bracket that had been installed had to come out too otherwise I wouldn't have been able to close my window and living in Utah it can get down to 0 degrees during the cold winter months. When I removed the bracket I found several holes along the window seal looked like the installer had a difficult time installing the unit. This summer I tried to screw the nails back into the holes but unfortunately the holes were stripped and I was unable to secure bracket and the unit in the window due to the damage along my window seal. I am 5'0 and 150lbs and for me this is a difficult process to install without assistants. The unit is way too heavy for me to lift and to have to screw and unscrew the bracket fill in the holes and paint along the window seal every year is not what I had expected. My opinion, this unit is not exactly compatible with a sliding window and difficult to install. Next time I plan to further my research in regards to installation. I plan to sell this unit and purchase one that is much easier to install and put away at the end of each season unless someone can suggest some options on installation.

... Too Many Things Wrong


... this unit seems to get dirty fast ... mold mildew builds up really quick ... i will have it cleaned then 3 months go by and i can see mold build up again ... yet i have an older AC FEDDERS unit in another room that never gets like this and this KENMORE is just 1 year old ... AND NOW its spitting out water and i just had it cleaned and serviced 2 months ago ... also seems my Frigidaire 10,000 BTU that i had before this one had more power and better cold than this Kenmore 12,000 BTU ... not happy

12,000 btu


I bought this 3 years ago and its about toast now. Its also loud.
To be fair, we did have a power cut with surges which could of lead to its demise. First, after power came back on, it worked but didn't shut off, it ignored the temp controls. maybe fried the temp sensors. I used the timer to shut it off. Then, month later, its just not that cold anymore. I don't know why a surge would cause that, but may for I am not an expert.
