Perfect for spaces up to 550 square feet, the Friedrich M12CH Mini-Split Air Conditioner effectively cools while eliminating excess moisture. This ductless mini-split system comes with a wall-mountable blower unit and an outdoor condenser for secure installation in areas that lack ductwork or rooms without exterior walls. With valuable features such as an Energy Star seal, the Friedrich M12CH 12,000-BTU Split Air Conditioner reduces yearly cooling costs and provides more efficiency than a standard portable AC or window air conditioner.
In addition to providing efficient cooling in medium-sized spaces, this mini-split air conditioner also functions in several independent capacities. The Friedrich M12CH Ductless Air Conditioner gives you more bang for your buck and provides consistent comfort in various seasons with the following operating modes:
Cool – In cooling mode, this Friedrich ductless air conditioner draws in 300 cubic feet of hot air per minute and exhausts it outside to the condenser unit through the connection pipe. Using 12,000 BTUs of cooling power, this mini-split system effectively reduces heat, creating a cool indoor environment.
Fan – Fan-only operation is beneficial on cool nights when maximum cooling is not necessary. While the cooling mode works to eliminate heat with a constant stream of cool air, the fan mode uses less cooling power to ventilate your space. With four fan speed settings – high, medium, low, and auto – the Friedrich M12CH Air Conditioner produces fresh air circulation to prevent indoor stuffiness.
Dry – In addition to cooling your home and ventilating your space, this system also improves your indoor air quality by eliminating room humidity. When the air in your space is warm and moist, it not only makes you feel hot and clammy, but it also makes your air conditioner work twice as hard to cool your space. In dry mode, the Friedrich M12CH Mini-Split System functions as a dehumidifier, removing 2.53 pints of excess moisture every hour so the compressor can consume less energy during the cooling process.
Auto – When programmed to operate in auto mode, this ductless mini-split air conditioner monitors the air quality in your space and automatically starts the cooling process, fan cycle, or drying method to accommodate the current condition of your indoor air.
Mini-split air conditioners are usually installed high on the wall, making the control panel hard to reach. So it is important to have a custom remote control that lets you operate the indoor blower unit from a distance. The Friedrich M12CH Ductless Split System comes with a deluxe remote control with an advanced LCD display screen and a remote holder that you can mount on the wall for easy access.
The LCD remote features several soft-touch buttons that allow you to control every function of your ductless air conditioner. The electronic display screen features user-friendly icons that help you monitor the current temperature and timer settings. Additionally, these icons display which operating mode is in use, making it easy to program your ideal settings.
This single-zone ductless air conditioner consists of one indoor blower unit and one outdoor condenser unit. The wall-mountable blower unit, or air handler, connects to the condenser unit through a Friedrich refrigeration line set (sold separately). The indoor air handler pulls in hot air from the room and transfers it outside to the condenser. As heat is forced out of your space, the blower unit disperses cool air, lowering your room temperature to a comfortably cool level.
What sets Friedrich ductless air conditioners apart from typical air conditioner systems is their innovative cooling process. This Friedrich mini-split air conditioner starts the cooling cycle with maximum power to cool your space faster using inverter technology. This efficient cooling method helps you reach your ideal room temperature right away while conserving energy. While traditional air conditioners constantly cycle the compressor on and off causing uncomfortable temperature fluctuations, the Friedrich M12CH Mini-Split AC accurately accesses your current room temperature and uses the appropriate fan speed to maintain a comfortable temperature. Inverter technology helps you avoid the up and down cooling output of traditional ACs and it uses approximately 30% less electricity.
This 12,000-BTU mini-split air conditioner is equipped with the following enhancements:
The Friedrich 12,000-BTU Split Air Conditioner includes two parts: an indoor blower unit and an outdoor condenser unit. The blower unit should be mounted 6 inches below the ceiling and at least 8 feet above the floor of the room you choose to install the AC in, giving you plenty of placement options. While you don’t need an exterior wall in your space to install a ductless split system, installation does require a 3-inch wall opening for the refrigeration lines.
*Note: This Friedrich ductless split system requires professional installation by a licensed HVAC technician.
