  • Summary: Now, granted.. It's about $300 more than I was ready to spend, but to be perfectly honest I've never had, felt, or experienced a window AC with as much cooling power as this one.

Nice and Cool

  • Summary: In Seattle we don't often need AC but this summer has been the exception. This unit is cooling a very large master suite. It has a large walk-in (uninsulated) closet, sitting/TV and sleeping area as well as three large skylights. Areas closer to the unit are of course cooler, but all rooms/areas are comfortable. The only reason I didn't give this AC five star rating is the fan is a bit loud for sleeping. It would have been great to have one more lower setting.

Cools three rooms on 95 degree humid days; owned for over 5 years.

  • Summary: I bought this unit because of the reliable Kenmore name, as well as the particular shape of the unit, as it fits our thin double-hung window (16.5" wide). I expected it to be good, I did not know it would far exceed my expectations. I have had this unit for six summer seasons, and it has not once disappointed. It cools three rooms down from a 95 degree humid day amazingly well.

Great unit, easy to install

  • Summary: I read the instructions a couple of times & was still confused so I ditched them & it was a breeze, pardon the pun. The nice thing is it came with everything, including the window support bracket - saved me an additional $30. The unit is relatively quiet & cooled my oven of a room of 550 sq ft in about an hour & was well pleased with the performance. Also, it was light weight compared to a similar unit. Kenmore makes great quality products.

Good output, tough install

  • Summary: My husband is finishing up the 2 hr install. Yes, it came with an install pkg for the casement window but it didn't include enough screws, nor were the screw holes (in the mounting areas) big enough. Then the height of the window opening is appx 5" taller than the included window adapter Lastly, Yes, there was a metal strip on which the unit would sit for the purpose of balancing the whole back end of it out the window, but our window slider track is about an inch high...

  • Summary: This unit works really well. It keeps my open living room and dinning room nice and cool. The only thing that I don't like about this unit is the noise.

It's The GREATEST!!!!

  • Summary: We bought one of these about 6 years ago for our master bedroom, as we have nobody else living in the home. We didn't want to have to continue to cool the whole house with the large A/C unit and this Sear's unit cools our bedroom GREAT!! I just clean the filter each month and have never had any issues with it. We will replace it with the same one when the time comes but it is still working like a charm.

Keep your Cool with this one.

  • Summary: I had a hard time finding an AC unit to fit my sliding window configuration and this one suited my room needs and window size. Having never installed any AC before, I read the instructions a few times and was very confused. Once I started however,it installed fairly easily with a few modifications on my part, mostly regarding the window height and anchoring.
