  • Product Overview

    The Friedrich Breeze 24,000 BTU Mini-Split Air Conditioner offers a revolutionary design that makes it easy-to-install through-the-wall or through a window. It also features variable capacity performance, remarkably quiet operation, and numerous advanced features.

    In addition to cooling and heating spaces from 550-1,500 square feet, the Friedrich BR1224W3A offers 5 operating modes, 4 fan speeds, remote control, and programmable timer.  

    Advanced Inverter Technology

    The Friedrich Breeze BR1224W3A Mini-Split AC System takes energy efficiency to a new level with variable capacity inverter technology. Thanks to this technology, the large Breeze unit can function as a 12,000 BTU unit or as a 24,000 BTU unit—or anywhere in between. Converting to square footage, this model is suitable for rooms from 550 to 1,500 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.

    Five Operating Modes

    The Friedrich Breeze has 5 operating modes to keep you comfortable all year: Cooling, Dehumidification, Fan-only, Heat, and Auto modes. Use Fan-Only mode to avoid room stuffiness when Cool mode isn’t needed; and Dehumidification mode removes excess moisture from your air. As previously mentioned, this model can cool or offer supplemental heat to spaces as large as 1,500 square feet.

    Auto mode 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.

    Install Through a Window or Wall

    The Friedrich Breeze BR1224W3A Mini Split AC System is a perfect cooling solution for places where other air conditioners can't be installed, such as interior rooms and rooms without windows or outside walls. Thanks to its 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

    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.


    The Friedrich Breeze is a revolutionary mini-split system that can be installed through a window or wall for efficient cooling or heating in spaces as large as 1,500 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.   
    • Five Modes: Some mini-split models can simply cool your space, but this model offers year-round comfort to large spaces.

    Things to Consider

    • Room Size: Love this model but only need to cool smaller spaces? Consider the Friedrich Breeze for Small Rooms.
    • Install Through a Window: The Friedrich Breeze BR1224W3A 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.

              I was looking forward to having the Freidrich Breeze. I paid additional expenses of hiring an electrician to run the higher voltage receptacle for it. Imagine the let-down feeling when the outdoor unit wouldn't work and gave the indoor unit error code U5. Freidrich customer service said the mother board is bad and they do not provide service in our state. They recommended asking the seller for a replacement. Freidrich said the system should not be sold outside the service areas. Given the size, weight, and expense of the item, in the future I will buy locally to make sure I will not loose a small fortune. At this time, I am waiting to see what Sylvane will do for me.

              Comments about Friedrich Breeze 24000 BTU Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioner - BR1224W3A:

              I ordered this planning to install it myself after receiving several outrageously high bids for installation of mini-split AC-Heat Pump systems for my second story addition (a 550 square foot master bedroom and bathroom). With the help of the handyman working with me on the addition, we got it installed in about 6 hours, and could have done it faster. The unit works great. It is extremely hot here in Texas right now, and this thing cools like a champ. Once the room cools down, it is very quiet - that really surprised me. It can be loud in turbo mode, but you don't need to run turbo mode once a room is cool, or really ever if you leave the unit on, from what I can see so far. I can't emphasize enough how quiet the thing is - quieter than my central AC downstairs, and much quieter than a clunky intermittent window unit. Also surprising to me is that fact the whole room stays cool evenly, including the bathroom, so long as I leave the door open.

              This is a great unit, and saved me $2,000+ on install. It was not totally intuitive to install. The instructions are vital - follow them to a T. And then just be aware that you can firmly but gently pull the copper tubing straight once you get the tubes hanging outside your house. If you feel capable of reading instructions and doing something as challenging as, say, installing a vent through your roof or wall, you can do this. Certainly a good handy-person can do it for you, getting in down in 4-8 hours.

              And the performance far exceeds my expectations. The only downside is that mini splits are not that attractive - I wish there was a version of the Breeze that worked as a receesed ceiling casette. I would also recommend having a ceiling fan in the same room as the split to circulate air, since the split keeps the room cool but will not necessarily move the air around as much as a central AC system - and the air movement is nice. Still, wholeheartedly recommend this as a solution for cooling individual rooms.
