      Comments about Friedrich Breeze 12000 BTU Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioner - BR0412W1A:

      We purchased this from Sylvane and installed it in the Spring of 2013. It has cooled our ~550 square foot home well for two summers now. We installed it ourselves and saved ~$3,000. We got three quotes on local companies installing similar minisplits and the average quote was just over $4,000. It cools well and has held up so far. The remote control is a bit glitchy and doesn't always work right, but for the overall price and performance my wife and i are quite happy.

        Comments about Friedrich Breeze 12000 BTU Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioner - BR0412W1A:

        I was looking for a DIY unit and this one has everything you need. Very simple setup, took me 5 hours from start to finish and I was trying to be very careful with the pipe. I had a slight bend in the drain and although it was on the second floor and below the indoor unit, it still backup and I got a little flood. Straightened the bend and everything is fine. Since this is a relatively new product, couldn't find any reviews on the quality.

        Comments about Friedrich Breeze 12000 BTU Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioner - BR0412W1A:

        Wife and I installed it. It came with new instructions and template but still not detailed enough - those on this website are old . You need an engineering degree to figure out how to use the remote control - it has a lot of functions.
        No need to run the line set across the back of unit unless you don't go through the wall. It will fit almost flush against the wall now. We are very impressed with this unit. The outdoor unit is pretty quiet as well. I was going to buy two of these but one might be enough for my well insulated house. I would give 5 stars if it had better instructions, especially for the remote.

          Comments about Friedrich Breeze 12000 BTU Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioner - BR0412W1A:

          I am using this product for silent/low noise cooling in my breeze-way conversion in the warm humid months and then as supplemental heating in with cool/winter months.

          It is very quiet in both cooling and heating modes. The 25ft tube length is great.

          It is a two person job. I'd buy another one.

          Well, overall very pleased with the 2 units I bought, I've had them going for a couple weeks now. Soon it will be very hot in Arizona and we'll see how they do! The install through the wall quite difficult, suggest cut a second 3" hole just to the right of the marked one to help make space for the lines.

            Comments about Friedrich Breeze 12000 BTU Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioner - BR0412W1A:

            I recently purchased and installed one of these units in my train room over my double car garage. Everything I needed came with the package. Installation was really quite simple with the help of a neighbor got it done in about six hours including building a stand for the outside unit as we're at 4 feet above sea level. I was probably overly careful with the connecting lines, scared to over bend, result was a slightly ugly run down my garage exterior. Installed through a window but built my own adapter with insulation foam and a piece of wood cut to the correct dimensions. Recommending this to a co-worker and volunteering to help with the install.

              Takes a bit work to install. The 25 foot line is not easy to work with since it's contected on end to the unit. Unit cools well and is quite.

              Breeze 12,000 BTU system is installed in a 500 square feet rental coach house apartment. Does an excellent job of cooling and heating this space. Tenants love it as the system is quite and provides excellent air distribution and dehumidification.

              Over all it is an easy install with exception of channeling the refrigerant lines, drain tube and interconnecting cables behind the indoor component....not a good fit!

                hardest part was the interior bracket, bracket was cheaply made, also the cooling tubes that come out of int unit should be braded for more flexibility.
