Klimaire KSIM012-H220

Klimaire has produced a 12000 BTU ductless mini split air conditioning unit that has taken energy saving technology to the next level. Not only is this model highly efficient at both cleaning and cooling the air, it uses the minimal amount of energy while doing so. Add to this the energy star rating and you have an A/C that’s easy on the bank account as well as efficient.

Review Details

There are many features to be had with the Klimaire mini split air conditioner. One of the most important is its ability to keep the air clean as well as cool, because Klimaire has installed an air ionizer which generates hydrogen oxygen ions. The ions eliminate bacteria, mold, viruses and other particles that can be a threat to your health, hence improving the quality of the air indoors.
Additionally the unit also has a carbon filter which combats harmful gases and/or eliminates unpleasant odors like pet smells and cigarette smoke.

The highly technical DC inverter helps to keep energy costs down as well as maintain the desired temperature indoors. In simple terms the unit will automatically adjust to the speed required, which means less energy usage and less guesswork.

What We Liked

  • Inverter Technology
    Unlike many other models of this type which have the compressors constantly running to maintain the desired temperature, Klimaire has used DC inverter technology. This means the compressor constantly monitors the temperature and adjusts its speed accordingly.
  • Advanced Remote Control
    The handy remote control included with this model has an automatic temperature sensor which sends a signal back to the main unit, making the whole system totally free of guesswork.
  • Self-Cleaning
    If you have the unit on a low fan speed, it will use condensate water to wash internal parts of the unit, keeping maintenance to a minimum.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality
    This air conditioner is fitted with an air ionizer and carbon filter. The ionizer will remove harmful particles like bacteria, mold spores and viruses. The carbon filter will eliminate unpleasant pet odors, cigarette smoke and also traps dust, pet fur and pollen.

What We Didn't Like

  • Customer Service
    Klimaire has received mixed reviews on their customer service levels. Some customers have been left very unhappy when they have technical issues, whilst others have said the company is slow to react.
  • Low Temperatures
    Klimaire do state that this unit will heat effectively if the temperature outside falls as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit. If it’s any lower than this, the unit will struggle.


A great deal of thought has gone into the technology behind the Klimaire 12000 BTU mini split air conditioner. Its ability to cool/heat rooms is highly regarded. Maintenance is not an issue due to the self-cleaning feature, and customers can expect to easily reach the desired levels of coolness/heat they need. Additionally, this unit will effectively keep the air free from various pollutants that can cause allergic reactions. Energy usage is something-else that should sway the decision on purchasing this model.
