  • Product Overview

    The P-12B ZoneAire Portable Air Conditioner is ideal for supplemental cooling in your home, office, sunroom or apartment. WIth 11,600 BTUs of cooling power, it's perfect for areas up to 400 square feet.

    It recently received high ratings from a top consumer reporting agency for comfort and indoor noise level, and it also receives great reviews from Sylvane customers. 

    Bucketless Design

    Bucketless system with self-evaporative condensate system removes excess condensate through the exhaust hose. This means you'll rarely have to deal with built-up condensation collected from cooling.  Under high humidity operating conditions, a back-up, built-in reservoir will hold excess condensate. Should the reservoir fill up, a water full light will illuminate on the control panel and the unit will shut off automatically for your convenience. It's easy to drain this moisture out the back through an outlet hose. 

    Additional Features

    • Remote control and LCD display – easily control functions like changing the temperature, adjusting the mode, and setting the timer on the digital control board or with the fully-functional remote control
    • Dual Exhaust Hose – optional second hose increasing efficiency during operation
    • Additional Modes – on mild days, turn on fan mode or consider dehumidify mode on muggy days (removes up to 6 pints of moisture an hour)
    • Adjustable Thermostat – set your ideal room temperature, and this model will meet it without wasting energy
    • Easily Portable – durable wheels and side handles make moving room-to-room easy
    • 24-hour Programmable Timer – set it and forget it up to 24 hours in advance
    • Window Bracket – window bracket included (min: 26", max: 46")
    • Exhaust Hoses – extend from 24" to 60" for flexible room placement
    • Multiple Fan Speeds – choose between low, medium, or high

        Comments about Friedrich P12B Portable Air Conditioner:

        The unit is pretty and sleek, the 2 hoses were easy to install and this unit fit into my verticle sliding window. It freezes my bedroom when we had 100 degree days in So.Cal., it was a god send during the fires we had. I kept it running constantly for 24 hours at a time due to the incredible amounts of smoke in the outside air. With a fan positioned out side of my bedroom, it blew air down the hall way and kept a 2500 sq. ft house ( up stairs) fairly cold. Very impressed by this unit, and I will probably buy another one for down stairs. Worth every dollar! Love it! I recommend it to my neighbor and she bought one too.

          This unit cools the lower level of a Colonial. During a week of 100 degree heat, the house was cool and comfortable. Installation was a breeze. Extremely happy with this product.

          Use this unit in a good sized bedroom with good results. It cools the room evenly and quietly. Do wish the blue light on the control panel had a cover. It lights up the room at night.

                Comments about Friedrich P12B Portable Air Conditioner:

                I live in an apartment building that has old casement windows (no crank!) so window air conditioning options are limited to portable or one designed for our casement windows. We opted for the portable one because we can take it with us when we move!

                Key features that sold me on this product were:

                Dual hose design: The air intake is outside so your newly cooled air isn't vented outside. This makes the unit more efficient, which is usually a drawback to portable AC's

                Self Evaporation: I haven't needed to empty the water tank yet. This unit evaporates the water while in use!

                Programmable: It's easy to program the AC to run during a specified time of day. It lets me come home to a cool house without running the air conditioner all day!

                ===Drawbacks===

                Installation: The AC comes with a kit that makes it easy to install in virtually any size sliding pane window, but it does not come with an installation solution for crank or casement windows. I ended up having a plexiglass replacement pane made with vent holes and had to install that into the window frame (see picture).

                Hoses: The hoses are stiff and big. They extend a lot, but the stiffness makes it harder to place the AC close to the window. I'd suggest cutting them shorter otherwise the unit sits about a foot away from the window when the hoses are completely unextended.

                Noise: The noise isn't bad when the fan is set to low but it's pretty loud on High.

                ===Conclusion===

                I'm satisfied with my purchase. It's a high quality air conditioner that includes all the important features for efficiency and convenience. It's an excellent brand as well. I've owned Friedrich AC's in the past and they've never let me down.

                Verified Buyer

                Comments about Friedrich P12B Portable Air Conditioner:

                I already had one Freidrich air conditioner and am very pleased with it. I bought this one largely because of that. It was quite easy to install and works great. It makes a little more noise than I would like, but that is understandable, of course, since the entire unit has to be inside the room. I recommend it highly
