  • Product Overview

    The Friedrich Breeze is a revolutionary new room air conditioning and heating system designed to efficiently keep you comfortable all year. One of the most versatile mini splits around, the Friedrich BR0412W1A can be installed through a wall or window, and is remarkable quiet since its compressor is located outside your home.   

    The Breeze for Small Rooms is designed to cool and heat spaces from 100 to 500 square feet. In addition, it offers 5 operating modes, 4 fan speeds, and can be plugged into a standard residential wall plug.

    Its entire system comes in just one box and includes: The indoor unit with 25' quick-connect line, the outdoor unit, outdoor unit's mounting pad, hardware, and LCD remote control.

    Efficient, Advanced Inverter Technology

    The Friedrich Breeze BR0412W1A Mini Split AC System takes energy efficiency to a new level with its variable capacity inverter technology. This technology lets the small Breeze unit function as a 4,000 BTU unit or as a 12,000 BTU unit—or anywhere in between. That means it's suitable to cool and heat rooms anywhere from 100 to 500 square feet.  

    Variable capacity inverter technology also allows the air conditioner to reach your desired temperature faster, maintain it more accurately, and reduce energy consumption with fewer compressor startups/stops. It simply uses the energy needed to reach your temperature and then maintains it without switching on and off like other ACs—which conserves energy and money on operating costs.

    Easy and Flexible Installation

    The Friedrich Breeze 12000 BTU Mini-Split Air Conditioner is a perfect cooling solution for places where other air conditioners can't be installed, such as interior rooms or rooms without windows. Thanks to its versatile design and 25-foot long refrigerant lines, installation options are numerous: thru-the-wall, thru-the-window, basements, second floors, and even some attics.

    Thru-window installation is a revolutionary feature for mini-split systems, since most models require cutting a small hole in your wall. To take advantage of this feature, simply purchase one of the optional SimpleSill accessories; one fits windows 22 to 32 inches wide and another that works in windows 32 to 42 inches wide

    Complete Comfort

    The Friedrich Breeze has 5 operating modes to keep you comfortable year-round. They include: Cooling, Dehumidification, Fan-only, Heat, and Auto modes. This model adequately cools and warms spaces up to 500 square feet, while Dehumidification mode removes excess moisture in humid rooms.

    Auto mode automatically switches between modes as needed to maintain your desired temperature. Continuous air sweeping louvers and 4 fan speeds distribute air throughout your space, so simply sit back and let the Breeze do its work.

    Additional Features

    • LCD Remote: This remote controls the indoor unit for quick, hassle-free operation.
    • 24-Hour Timer: Program your Friedrich Breeze to either cool or heat your space up to 24-hours in advance.
    • Continuous Air Sweep Up & Down: Air is automatically distributed around your space with no work from you!  
    • Washable Air Filters: Wash and reuse your air filters to keep unwanted particles out of your space and also save on replacement filters.
    • Long Reach: This model reaches up to 25' from indoor to outdoor unit for basement, upstairs and interior room installations.
    • Quick-Connect Refrigerant: Unique snap-in quick connect refrigerant and electrical line with peel-away drain line.
    • Auto-Restart: After a power outage, your AC turns back on to the previously programmed settings.
    • Quiet Operation: Since the compressor noise is located in the outdoor unit, the Friedrich Breeze is quieter than window or through-the-wall air conditioners. The only sound you hear indoors is the fan.

    Summary

    From its variable inverter technology that regulates your temperature to the quick line set installation, the Friedrich Breeze 12000 BTU Mini-Split Air Conditioner offers efficient room comfort for spaces up to 500 square feet.

    What Customers Love

    • Simple Operation:  Most mini split systems require professional installation, but the Breeze is easy to install through a window or wall—something customers love!
    • Zone Cooling: Zone cooling is extremely efficient, because it only cools one area instead of your entire home, so you're only using energy to cool areas you actually use.   
    • Automatic Mode: This mode allows for auto-changeover from cool to heat (or heat to cool) based on your room and desired temperature, which ensures your set temperature is met.

    Things to Consider

    • Larger Unit: Love this Breeze model but need more cooling power? Consider the larger Breeze model.
    • Install Through a Window: The Friedrich Breeze BR0412W1A can be easily installed through a window, so consider adding on a SimpleSill accessory. The smaller model fits windows between 22 and 32 inches and the larger model works in windows between 32-42 inches.

        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.

          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.

          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.

            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.

                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.
