Kenmore Air Conditioners not only cool a room, but also remove unwanted moisture so your room won\u2019t feel as hot in the humid summer. Unfortunately, the exact amount that\u2019s removed isn\u2019t explicitly stated. Like most models it\u2019s cumbersome to clean, but we still consider it a best through the wall air conditioner because of its plethora of other positive features.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Kenmore Air Conditioner\r\nThe Kenmore Air Conditioner is, overall, a fine choice for an in-wall air conditioning unit. It can cool any mid-sized room without hassle and has an excellent EER rating which leads to a well-earned Energy Star certification. And while it may be heavy, the rattling-induced noise that comes with light units is reduced.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe Kenmore Elite Air Conditioner boasts 12000 BTUs of cooling power. Translated into square-footage, it can cool a room of up to 550 square feet. If you\u2019d prefer a brand that has some variety of BTU power, check out the Keystone Air Conditioner. And although the dehumidifier setting also removes moisture from the air the exact amount is unknown.\r\nEnergy Efficiency\r\nThe Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) on the Kenmore Air Conditioner is 12.0 which qualifies it for an Energy Star Certification, which is always welcome. However, this is still higher than the around 10.5 most of its competitors, such as the KSTAT10-2C Keystone Air Conditioner, carry. Further, it also doesn't seem to be UL-Listed which would have been a most welcome addition.\r\nFiltration\r\nThe unit contains a flashing light that indicates the filter must be cleaned, which is pretty handy. However, it must be cleaned by hand and doing it once a month is ideal to avoid most of the larger particles. While not exactly bad, it can be a little cumbersome. But since most in-wall and window air conditioners must be cleaned this way we won\u2019t dock too many points away.\r\nDurability\r\nAt 81 pounds, the Kenmore Air Conditioner is on the heavier side of in-wall air conditioning units. However, this also means less rattling and thus less rattling noise. Still, check out the Friedrich Wall Air Conditioner if you\u2019d like something lighter. Speaking of noise, the Kenmore Air Conditioner has a 54dB noise level. For comparison, normal conversation is at 60dB. Comparatively, it\u2019s a quiet model.\r\nValue\r\nSome conveniences the Kenmore offers are a remote control and compatibility with Amazon Alexa.The remote control will be great on a humid day when you don\u2019t want to become unstuck from the couch, and if the remote is too far you can always ask Alexa to do it for you. Just be aware that the smart settings are for temperature only and can\u2019t be used to change the fan\u2019s operating modes.\r\nKenmore Air Conditioner Wrap Up\r\nKenmore is a long running brand known for their excellent air conditioners and the Smart 04277127 is no exception to that. It\u2019s comparatively quiet, and the Alexa compatibility makes it one of the few smart air conditioners on the market right now. So if you want to be an air conditioner trend-setter, go for it.
