Although Richard Sears founded the company in 1886, the name Kenmore (possibly from Kenmore Avenue in Chicago) did not appear until 1927 as a brand name for laundry appliances. In 1977, the Kenmore name replaced Coldspot as Sears’ brand name on air conditioners. Kenmore HVAC products have been made by a number of other companies, including manufacturers, Whirlpool, Electrolux, Keeprite, LG and Friedrich. Today, Kenmore appliances are sold exclusively through Sears, Sears on-line and retail outlets.
