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.
