The Kenmore 12,000 BTU Air Conditioner is quiet and powerful.
<p>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.&nbsp; So, I researched **************** and found out that Kenmore is the most recommended brand.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; This&nbsp;model&nbsp;was the one we found.&nbsp; It cooled our 2000 sq foot home quickly.&nbsp; I am sure it is not designed to cool a house this large.&nbsp; However, we are using it that way until our central unit gets fixed.&nbsp; Also, it is right next to our TV in our living room and there is very little noise.&nbsp; Finally, there was no hassle in installing it.&nbsp; It has a 10.4 seer which makes it very energy efficient.&nbsp; The higher the seer number the more energy efficent it is.&nbsp; It is an energy star model.&nbsp; It says that it will cost $89 per year to run.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; However, when compared to other models, it was one of the most energy efficient models out there.&nbsp; 12,000 BTU is as high as you are going to get with a 110 plug&nbsp; 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!!!&nbsp;&nbsp;115&nbsp; and 220 plugs will require an electrician if you don't know much about this kind of stuff.&nbsp; 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.</p>

Kenmore 12000 BTU window unit Item# 04270121000 Model# 70121
<p>This is a horrible product!  I read and read reviews before purchasing this one- I thought it was going to be a good one. Even **************** rated it well, plus all the reviews on this page show this as a great a/c unit- well- it is freaking noisy!  SOOOOOO NOISY- do not believe these people that say it is not noisy- it is very freaking loud!  I can't stand it! I'm not sure what I am going to do now- i had to jump through hoops just to get this one &amp; now I'm not sure how I am going to replace it.- I don't have help to get a new one installed. :(</p> <p>Anyway- I don't usually write reviews- but I had to tell you guys the truth about this one- don't believe the fake reviews! IT IS EXTREMELY LOUD!!!!!!</p> <p>LOUD!!!! </p> <p>LOUD!!!! </p> <p>LOUD!!!!</p>
