The follow-up to the Kenmore 83394 is bigger, but overall this Kenmore 83395 Medium Room is identical to its brother.

Kenmore isn’t a company for only air purifiers. In fact, this long-standing company has been the manufacturer of many household appliances, and their products are sold mainly on Sears. That’s a little bit about the company, and today, we will have a Kenmore 83395 Medium Room Review.
Other Kenmore’s Air Purifier Reviews:
Kenmore 83395 Medium Room Price
Let’s get back to basics with the Kenmore 83395 Medium Room, a device in the tradition package of a native American company, which is just like the Honeywell HPA200, AeraMax 200 or TruSens Z-2000. This time, Kenmore weighs in with a more capable air purifier at a decent price.
Well, this Kenmore 83395 has a more-than-familiar feel about it, given that this model once again uses the same design concept as the Kenmore 83394 Small Room. You’ll certainly find this design again in the next Kenmore 83396 Large Room.
So what should we notice about this Kenmore 83395 Medium Room? It has a relative power to the flagship, but it has more balance in both size and price. The official price tag of this Kenmore 83395 is only $165, so it sits in the middle of its two brothers.
For the price it is similar to the Winix 5500-2, Oreck Air Response Small and Medify MA-25. If you can afford a bit more, you will get the air purifiers with high fan power and necessary Smart Sensor, like the Vornado AC550 or Elechomes UC3101, and of course, Coway AP-1512HH.

Kenmore 83395 Medium Room Design and Size
Tradition of the native America air purifiers is a whole set of devices in different size, and we can easily conclude the picture of this Kenmore 83395 Medium Room. It is just a middle brother, with the middle size in the Kenmore family.
So you get an air purifier with the height of 16 inches and the width of 17 inches. This air purifier can be lying down or standing upright, depending on your liking.
For the practical users, they will be pleased with the old design in this Kenmore 83395. It is sleek enough with the white color option, which I always feel much better on a full-plastic body. It sports the same bottom-to-top air flow system concept, or a bit back-to-front concept, again depending on how you place it.
The top control panel remains the same as the previous model, so we shouldn’t expect to have any new additional features.
You can easily carry the air purifier with a convenient handle from the back, and the Kenmore 83395 Medium Room weighs only 13.2 lbs.

Kenmore 83395 Medium Room Filters
The Kenmore family shares the same air filtration system, with only the difference in air filter’s size and base fan power. So to say, in this Kenmore 83395 Medium Room is again a 3-stage air cleaning system.
- Pre-filter – A pre-filter is attached with Activated Carbon filter, so it can both trap the large pollutants and odors.
- True HEPA filter – The Kenmore 83395 uses a True HEPA filter to capture 99.97% of airborne asthma and allergy triggering contaminates as small as 0.3 microns.
- Ionizer – It adds another stage of air filtration, to increase the overall performance. Can be switched on/off.
The Kenmore 83395 Medium Room is able to withstand the same test as its bigger brother, in the room of 200 square feet. As you can see, its overall performance in 1 hour is relatively the same, as it can trap 99.7% of all airborne particles down to 0.3 microns in this test. Well, it was still behind the Sharp FP-K50UW and Winix AM90, but it also has a slightly cheaper price.
For this air purifier, you need to use the air filter 83190 that costs $39 upfront. Sadly, I can’t find any deal for this filter replacement. It is really hard to get air purifiers and air filters of Kenmore today.

Kenmore 83395 Room Coverage
Again, we know that we can only use Kenmore 83395 for medium rooms or smaller, and it is recommended for any room size up to 280 square feet.
The ACH of Kenmore 83395 is 4X. This ACH rating means it will exchange the air in your room every 15 minutes.

Kenmore 83395 Medium Room Sound
Again, the Kenmore 83395 Medium Room keeps the amazing whisper-quiet operation on lowest speed. It is truly the gold feature for an air purifier with nearly double the fan power of Kenmore 83394 Small Room. So to say, the noise level is only 29 decibels (db), and I love to use it while sleeping.
On highest speed, the noise level is a bit higher, capped at 53.2 decibels. It is still like the normal conversation at home, and it is only for quick cleaning, which you don’t use for most of the time.

Kenmore 83395 Medium Room Power Consumption
One of our most FAQs is “Do air purifiers use a lot of energy?” In fact, air purifier must be used for a long time to be efficient. And power consumption is one important criteria to review if this air purifier is good or not.
We have another Energy Star air purifier with this Kenmore 83395 Medium Room, which is meant to save you energy and money. However, I don’t think the power consumption of 84 watts is good enough, and you shouldn’t use the high fan power too much.
If you use the Kenmore 83395 Medium Room for 8 hours per day, you need to pay $30 annually.

Kenmore 83395 Medium Room Additional Features
As I’ve mentioned earlier, the Kenmore 83395 Medium Room sticks together with its brothers, so it has exactly the same additional features that the Kenmore 83394 Small Room previously offered.
That being said, you still have the basic settings like a Timer, to schedule time off after 1, 2 or 4 hours. There are two LED indicators for filter replacement, so you don’t need to worry about swapping in a new filter.
Well, at this price range, you should expect the Smart Sensor on your air purifier, something that you can’t have in this Kenmore 83395 Medium Room. I recommend you to look for the Levoit LV-PUR131, RENPHO RP-AP001S or Winix C545 for any high-end additional features that you’ve ever dreamed of.
Kenmore 83395 Medium Room Customer Service
Kenmore is a big brand from Transform SR Brands LLC, and the company is selling Kenmore product even to overseas markets, so they really care about the customer service. If you have any questions, you can choose to call 844-553-6667 or live chat with Sears team.
Moreover, you should call 800-479-6351 for the customer care service, or ask for Sears Home Service, to get help right at your home. Yes, if you get a Kenmore air purifier, you will be fully backed up with the most available customer service.
Kenmore air purifiers are covered by a 1-year warranty, but if you ask for a refund, you can do it 30 days from the date of delivery or installation.
Kenmore 83395 Medium Room could be the best Kenmore air purifier you should get, with its balance in both price and performance. It serves nearly the same performance as the Kenmore 83396 Large Room, and it is more likely on sale.
On the other hand, it is quite energy consuming despite of its Energy Star rating. And it doesn’t have the necessary Smart Sensor, which we always expect for an air purifier in this price range. Perhaps, you should look for any Kenmore alternatives if you find this air purifier unavailable.
It is decent for its performance, but it still lacks of features.
