Well, it doesn’t matter. Clearly, the LG offers superior cooling capacity. The most efficient “10,000 BTU” model on the market is again an LG – either the LG LP1017WSR or LG LP1018WNR – with a SACC of 6,500 BTUs. WK = White and blacK But what about the most important aspect of them all? Speaking of included weather stripping, Honeywell HL units come with a minimal set – two compact sponge adhesive seals for use around the window frame and a single less dense foam seal for the larger gap between the moving part of the window and the static part of the window (once you install the window kit). The one point I want to add that I never see mentioned is what a huge difference it makes to insulate the exhaust hose.
