The Hisense 10000-BTU Window AC is a quiet, cost-efficient pick for small spaces that is very easy to operate and install. It has a 55 dB noise output WiFi app and voice control support and efficiently cools down spaces of up to 450 sq ft. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have IFTTT support and cannot be integrated into Apple’s Homekit system.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The Hisense 10000-BTU Window AC is an entry-level air conditioner that was first announced in mid-2022. Designed for window installation, this AC unit can serve an area of up to 450 sq ft, which is relatively small compared to the kind of spaces that the best air conditioners on the market can serve. The Hisense AC also has a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio of 5, and it is also Energy Star Rated. Check out our roundup of the best inverter air conditioners if you want more power-efficient alternatives.  It can operate either as a fan, a cooler, or a dehumidifier. However, if you’re considering a solution that keeps the room temp lower, you might want to go through our chiller vs air conditioner comparison for better insight.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Hisense 10000-BTU air conditioner is a popular pick for its low noise output and its use of inverter technology for higher power efficiency. It effectively cools rooms of up to 450 sq ft and lets you know how much power it has consumed through energy reporting. Operation is also easy, given the smart touch controls on its front panel and the inclusion of an 11-button remote. Additionally, the AC unit supports voice control through Google Assistant or Alexa, and it can be paired with the ConnectLife mobile app for even easier management. It also ships with a washable filter that is easy to remove and clean.

At its lowest setting, the AC unit has a sound output of 55 dB, which places it among the top third quietest ACs on our certified tested list. Unfortunately, it doesn’t feature IFTTT or HomeKit support for integration into Apple’s smart home setup.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Cooling Capacity
    • This 10,000 BTU Hisense AC unit has an Airflow rating of 170 CFM at its highest and 218 CFM at its lowest, which allows it to cool down spaces of up to 450 sq ft efficiently while monitoring how much energy it consumes.

    • For rooms that are up to 550 sq ft, you might want to go through our Midea U-shaped MAW12V1QWT review.

  • Low noise level
    • The Hisense AC has a noise output of only 55 dB, which makes it one of the quietest ACs on our certified, tested list. A quieter alternative to consider would be the Windmill AC 8000, which we’ve covered in our Windmill AC 8000 review.

  • Smart features/Easy operation
    • This Hisense AC can be operated through the touch-sensitive controls on its smart panel or through its 11-button remote.

    • Owners can also download the ConnectLife mobile app and make adjustments after pairing or linking it to their smart home for it to accept voice commands through Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

Reason to Avoid

  • No IFTTT or Apple Homekit support
    • This Hisense AC unit cannot be integrated into the Apple SmartHome system.

While the Hisense 10000-BTU Air conditioner is designed for window placement, the Hisense 4-in-1 portable air conditioner allows for more flexible use since it has caster wheels for seamless movement. The Hisense 10000-BTU AC also has a higher Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio than the Hisense 4-in-1 AC, meaning it has a better cooling output relative to the power consumed, despite being more expensive. Another portable alternative designed for personal use is the Evapolar evaSMART, which costs around the same price as these two.

The Hisene 10000-BTU Air conditioner has a higher cooling capacity than the Windmill AC, making it more effective at temperature control. The Hisense air conditioner also has directional air vents on its front panel, which the Windmill AC does not. Additionally, the more expensive Hisense AC has an Energy Star rating, making it the more power-effective option despite being more expensive. However, regarding noise output, the Windmill AC is the quieter pick.

The Hisense 10000-BTU AC unit doesn’t quite match up to the cooling capacity of the more expensive Midea MAW12V1QWT. The Midea AC also offers open window flexibility, meaning owners can open or close their windows. It is also a lot quieter than the Hisense AC, despite it being the more affordable option.  If you’re also considering a portable solution, you might want to go through our BTU DOE vs. BTU ASHRAE info piece to familiarize yourself with the new testing parameters used to determine their efficiency.
