I have this in my apartment and it easily keeps half of the building cool. I live in the entirety of a 1st floor of an apartment building, so my place is gigantic. My only complaint and the reason its 4 stars, the plastic fascia of the unit is just too cheaply made. The plastic is flimsy and I crack it putting it in my window. The intake cover just snaps in place, no hinges or anything, so if you break on of the tabs that holds it in you're going have to start using duct tape. For this price I would have liked better build quality. So far it hasn't broken at all but I don't know if its built to last.
The air conditioner was easy to install,cooled my 900 sq. ft. living room quickly and was easy to operate. For the price , you can't go wrong.!
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.
