Perfect for spaces up to 550 square feet, the single-zone Friedrich M12CJ Mini-Split Air Conditioner keeps you comfortable all year. This ductless mini-split system comes with a wall-mountable blower unit and an outdoor condenser for secure installation in areas that lack ductwork. With valuable features such as an Energy Star seal, the Friedrich M12CJ 12,000-BTU Split Air Conditioner reduces yearly cooling costs and provides more efficiency than a standard portable AC or window air conditioner.
Independent Operating Modes
In addition to providing efficient cooling, this mini-split air conditioner also gives you more bang for your buck with the following operating modes:
Cool – 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. With four fan speed settings – high, medium, low, and auto – the Friedrich M12CJ Air Conditioner produces fresh air circulation to prevent indoor stuffiness.
Dry – 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 M12CJ Mini-Split System removes 3 pints of excess moisture every hour.
Auto – This ductless mini-split air conditioner can monitor the air quality in your space and automatically start the cooling process, fan, or drying to accommodate your current indoor air conditions.
Convenient Remote Control
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 M12CJ 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.
Advanced Cooling Technology
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 M12CJ 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.
Temperature Control Options
This 12,000-BTU mini-split air conditioner is equipped with the following enhancements:
Turbo: The turbo function activates the maximum cooling setting. This feature enables you to set your ideal room temperature for immediate comfort. With the press of a button, the cooling system will use the highest fan speed to reach your set temperature right away.
Sensor: For effortless operation, use the sensor feature. This function determines the current room temperature and automatically adjusts the settings to an optimal level.
Extend: The extend feature prolongs operation for 10 additional minutes after the programmed settings have expired. This function can be used only in cool and dry mode.
Secure Wall Installation
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.
Efficient Operation: This Energy Star-rated ductless air conditioner boasts several energy-saving features to help reduce your cooling costs and it operates for approximately $81 a year. Plus, with a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) of 21.5, this mini-split AC guarantees efficient operation throughout a typical cooling season.
Programmable Timer: The 24-hour timer allows you to automate operation on your Friedrich air conditioner to maintain your designated settings while you’re away or asleep.
Auto-Swing Louvers: To experience maximum comfort, use the air sweep function to direct cool air in an angle that best accommodates your needs.
Reusable Air Filter: Save money on costly replacement filters with the washable air filter that comes standard with Friedrich ductless air conditioners. Simply clean the filter with warm water or a vacuum cleaner every three months.
Sleep Mode: The sleep function keeps your space comfortable in cool and dry mode and it maintains a pleasant room temperature with quiet operation while you rest.
Frost Control: During low-temperature operation, frost may begin to collect inside the air handler. If frost buildup occurs, the compressor will automatically shut down until the frost melts, protecting the unit from any damage.
Minimal Upkeep: In addition to user-friendly operation, this single-zone ductless air conditioner features hassle-free maintenance. To preserve your Friedrich mini-split air conditioner, wipe the front panel of the blower unit with a cold, damp cloth and clean the reusable air filter periodically.
Automatic Restart: In the event of a power failure, the Friedrich M12CJ Ductless Air Conditioner will automatically resume operation in the last programmed setting once the power is restored. This function not only protects the compressor, but it also prevents circuit breaker damage.
Quiet Operation: This ductless split system operates efficiently around the clock while emitting minimal sound. Because the condensing unit is positioned outside of your home, the indoor blower is virtually silent for little to no noise disruption in your indoor environment even on the highest setting.
