Panasonic 12,000 Btu Air Conditioner
Royal Sovereign Arp-1200De
I Would Be Buying From A Listing On Craigslist Where The Panasonic Is $125, And The Royal Is $150
The Panasonic !! a window unit is the best, I bought that free standing one after Huricane Rita, and took it back the next day. You have to run a hose thru the window with it anyway, Go with the Panasonic
Panasonic 12,000 BTU AIR CONDITIONER
Strengths: 12,000 BTU, 10.8 EER, very quiet, digital, remote control, timer, easy filter access, bottom/side drain with short pipe for hose.
Weaknesses: Very minor: soft outer body (thin metal sheet) may be prone to deformation, only 3 screws for the upper metal bar (4-5 would be slightly better).
Summary: This 12,000 BTU digital air conditioner has all bells and whistles including remote control, timer, easy filter access, bottom/side drain with short pipe for hose. At 10.8 EER, it consumes max. 1,110 W, but can be set to variable modes: cool, economy, fan and dry turning on and off and also timed from 1 up to 12 hours. It has 3 fan speeds, but works very quiet. The temperature can be set between 60 and 86 deg. F.
Powerful yet quiet cooling engine * Remote control * Great feature set including Air Swing
Summary: (Edited June 10th by zhuchok) This is a great air conditioner. Not only does it come with the Panasonic brand quality, but it also has a number of great features to back it up. I think it is well-worth the price!

What Is The Best Central Air Conditioner?
I'M Looking At Getting A Keeprite Because They Are Known To Be Very Quiet. Are There Any Other Brands That You Can Recommend? I'M Being Told York By The Service Guys But Would Like Your Feedback!
You are asking a very important question.
Let me try to clear a few things up for you:
1) The Keeprite brand you mentioned is produced by ICP.
ICP is part of the Carrier brand name groups.
2) Most AC companies have preferences to the brand they sell. Examples being: York, Trane, Goodman/Amana, Carrier [ICP family], Nordyne and all their 'brand names', Lennox, etc.
I select Goodman because of value for dollar & warranty protection. Not all 'brands' are available in all parts of the country.
More important than any 'brand name' is the integrity of the contractor installing it.
If you hire a guy doing side jobs who is not licensed & insured as a legitimate contractor in business, you will end up with shoddy workmanship done by idiots that only want your money.
There are guidelines and protocols regarding the installation process of all HVAC equipment. When these are not followed, and cutting corners to 'save time' becomes the practice of a contractor, you end up with a machine which longevity has been compromised.
Brand is not near as important as the integrity of the installation from the very beginning.

We Are Building A House And Would Like To Know What Is The Better Brand Of Furnace And Air Conditioner? Bryant, Train, Ect. Also What Should It Cost To Install Heat And Air In A 1800 Sq Foot New Construction Home. We Have 1800 Sq Feet Upstairs And A Walk Out Basement (1800 Sq Ft) That Will Also Need Heat, No Air. Any Input Would Be Helpful.
We purchased a York CH/A about 4 months ago..... the ducts and outside unit were already established, so I can't really be of any help to you on that note, but I can tell you that the install and cost of the inside unit without the rest ran us $3,500 and we have a 1700 sq. ft one story home, and we purchased the one with the 97% eff. rate.. We love it.. it is quiet, and keeps our home comfortable.. andthe sevice man, informed us that it is one of the most requested around our area, due to the eff. rate, the great feedback, and the rare need for repairs...... they haven't had any compliants, and we are also another satisfied customer.
We used to have a Trane , and it didn't work well at all.. we would have to repair and replace parts, at least once a month.. (no joke) .. it may have just been a bad unit, but we will never do that again... Our outside unit is a Bryant, and we have had it for almost 3 years.. no issues at all.....
You ought to be able to contact a CH/A company in your area... most will do a free estimate!!
