The single-zone Friedrich M12YH Mini-Split Air Conditioner allows you to cool your home without installing expensive ductwork and it is loaded with energy-saving features for lower electric bills year-round. With a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) of 21 and an energy efficiency ratio (EER) of 12.5, this multi-purpose ductless split system provides super-efficient cooling, heating, dehumidification, and air ventilation for areas sized up to 500 square feet.
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, heat, 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 M12YH 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 your home, the indoor blower is virtually silent for little to no noise disruption in your indoor environment even on the highest setting.
Air Conditioner, Heater, and More
The Friedrich M12YH Ductless Air Conditioner gives you more bang for your buck and provides consistent comfort in every season with the following operating modes:
Cool – In cooling mode, this Friedrich ductless air conditioner draws in 447 cubic feet of hot air per minute and exhausts it outside to the condenser unit through the connection pipe. Using 11,500 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. The fan mode produces fresh air circulation to ventilate your space and to prevent indoor stuffiness.
Dry – In dry mode, the Friedrich M12YH Mini-Split System functions as a dehumidifier, removing 3.8 pints of excess moisture per hour so the compressor can consume less energy during the cooling process.
Heat – The built-in heater allows you to set the thermostat to warm temperatures up to 88 degrees Fahrenheit. This mode also features a minimum heat function, which maintains a room temperature of at least 50 degrees Fahrenheit to keep your indoor environment from getting uncomfortably cold.
Efficient Cooling Method
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. The indoor air handler pulls in hot air from the room and transfers it outside to the condenser. 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 M12YH 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.
No Ductwork Necessary
The Friedrich M12YH Ductless Split System consists of one blower unit that installs inside and one condenser unit that installs outdoors. The wall-mountable blower unit, or air handler, connects to the condenser unit through a Friedrich refrigeration line set (sold separately).
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 HVAC-certified technician.
This 11,500-BTU mini-split air conditioner is also 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.
