The Friedrich M18CF Mini-Split Air Conditioner removes excess moisture in the air while efficiently cooling your indoor environment. This eco-friendly ductless air conditioner uses non-ozone-depleting R-410A refrigerant and it helps to reduce your cooling costs with an energy efficiency ratio (EER) of 10.4. In addition to operating efficiently, this mini-split system runs very quietly, emitting only 44 decibels of sound on the highest setting. Perfect for large areas with limited windows and home additions without existing ductwork, the Friedrich M18CF Air Conditioner is a low-profile way to cool your home.
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. In the event of frost buildup, 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 M18CF 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.
Efficient Operation: This energy-efficient ductless air conditioner boasts several energy-saving features to help reduce your cooling costs. With a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) of 19, this mini-split AC guarantees efficient operation throughout a typical cooling season.
Efficiently Reduces Heat
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 M18CF 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 process of traditional ACs and it uses approximately 30% less electricity.
Cools, Ventilates, and Dehumidifies Indoor Air
The Friedrich M18CF 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 415 cubic feet of hot air per minute and exhausts it outside to the condenser unit through the connection pipe. Using 18,000 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 isn’t necessary. The fan mode produces fresh air circulation to ventilate your space and to prevent indoor stuffiness.
Dry - In addition to cooling your home and ventilating your space, this mini-split 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 M18CF Mini-Split System functions as a dehumidifier, removing 5.9 pints of excess moisture every hour so the compressor can consume less energy during the cooling process.
Installs Securely without Ductwork
The Friedrich 18,000-BTU Split Air Conditioner includes two parts: a blower unit that installs inside and a condenser unit that installs outdoors. 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 connection pipe.
*Note: This Friedrich ductless split system requires professional installation by a licensed HVAC technician.
Provides Hassle-Free Operation
This 18,000-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 modes.
