Sharp AFS120RX

Sharp is a long established electronics company with a world-renowned reputation. The energy star rated AFS120RX 12000 BTU air conditioner has not let the company down in terms of the excellence they strive for. This unit is designed to fit into a window and is stylish as well as sleek. Whilst it’s quiet enough to operate in a bedroom, it won’t look out of place in any room in the home that’s up to 745 square feet in size.

Review Details

The Sharp AFS120RX will efficiently keep you cool all summer long. The comfort touch controls will allow you to precisely adjust the desired temperature in just one degree increments, eliminating any guesswork. It also features an on/off 24 hour timer so this unit is truly a “set it and forget” model that will quietly do the job it’s built for.

For further convenience Sharp has included a Rest Easy remote control which allows you to adjust the temperature, turn the unit on/off, set the timer or change the fan speed at the touch of a button. Add to this the dehumidification capability of just under 4 pints per hour and you have a unit that will keep you comfortable no matter how warm the weather is.

What We Liked

  • Modern and Stylish
    The AFS120RX has been thoughtfully designed. It’s sleek, modern and won’t look out of place in any room in the home.
  • Precise Temperature Control
    This air conditioner is fitted with a temperature control that allows you to adjust the desired level in just one degree increments, eliminating any guesswork.
  • Energy Efficient
    Energy star rated, the AFS120RX will save you up to 10% on your energy bills. It also features an energy saving mode that automatically switches the compressor off when it’s not needed.
  • Auto-Cool Mode

  • Rest Easy Remote Control
    Sharp have thoughtfully included a remote control so the user can access all of the features at the touch of a button no matter where you are in the room.

What We Didn't Like

  • Compressor Noise
    Whilst this unit has been designed to automatically shut the compressor off when it’s not needed, it can be a little noisy when in operation.
  • Difficulty Cooling
    Some have noted this unit has difficulty cooling the area it has been chosen for. However, it is advisable to check the square footage of the room you intend to use it first.


Compared to many other 12000 BTU air conditioners, the Sharp AFS120RX rates well above average. For many it’s quiet, efficient and does the job it’s built for. You cannot ignore the aesthetics of this unit. It does look like an air conditioner but has been thoughtfully designed so it won’t look out of place. The mere fact it’s energy star rated and reasonably priced makes this model well worth considering.
