The Friedrich M36CG Mini-Split Air Conditioner is a single-zone model with multiple modes and efficient features. This energy-efficient ductless split system consumes less electricity than traditional air conditioners and reaches your ideal room temperature faster. The Friedrich M36CG Ductless Mini-Split System features a powerful cooling capacity of 33,000 BTUs, fan-only operation, and a sleep timer.
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: The washable air filter not only helps you save money on costly replacement filters, but it also prevents mildew buildup. Basic cleaning with warm water or a vacuum cleaner is recommended for 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 M36CG 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 Cooling Process
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. As heat is forced out of your space, the blower unit disperses cool air, lowering your room temperature to a comfortably cool level. 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 M36CG 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 consumes 30% less electricity.
Independent Operating Modes
The Friedrich M36CG 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 700 cubic feet of hot air per minute and exhausts it outside to the condenser unit through the connection pipe. Using 33,000 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. 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 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 works twice as hard to cool your space. In dry mode, the Friedrich M36CG Mini-Split System functions as a dehumidifier, removing 10.1 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 automatically starts the cooling process, fan cycle, or drying method to accommodate the current condition of your indoor environment. To help conserve energy, this function monitors the air quality in your space and adjusts the thermostat for the most cost-effective operation.
The Friedrich M36CG 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 indoor air handler pulls in hot air from the room and transfers it outside to the condenser through the refrigeration lines.
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 have to have an exterior wall in your space to install a ductless split system, installation does require a 3-inch wall opening for the connection lines.
*Note: This Friedrich ductless split system requires professional installation by a HVAC-certified technician.
