    Preserve Energy and Safeguard Your Health

    The Friedrich Kühl SM18M30 window air conditioner doesn’t just cool your air, it also creates a healthier environment indoors and out. This window AC comes with a washable antimicrobial air filter, which prevents the growth and distribution of harmful bacteria and fungus into your indoor environment. Friedrich SM18M30 owners also have the option of adding a carbon filter to their window AC’s filtration system for even greater air purification, including advanced removal of odors, ozone, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This combination air filtration system provides superior filtration with ratings as high as MERV 6. Since the SM18M30 also removes 4.6 pints of excess moisture per hour, you don’t have to worry about sticky-feeling air.

    As an Energy Star-qualified window AC, the Friedrich SM18M30 helps you reduce energy costs without sacrificing functionality.

    Don’t waste time constantly adjusting dials or making countless trips to your window AC to try to achieve a comfortable temperature. With multiple programmable settings, intuitive features, and an included remote control, the Friedrich Kühl SM18M30 makes total cooling comfort a breeze. This Friedrich air conditioner includes the following features:

    Rugged Friedrich Construction and Cooling Power

    Like all Friedrich window air conditioners, the Kühl SM18M30 boasts built-to-last design. Delivering 17,500 BTUs of cooling power to your spaces up to 950 square feet, this window air conditioner is constructed of heavy-gauge galvanized steel, rifled copper tubing, and high-tech aluminum fins to guarantee years of reliable cooling. Fully-enclosed fan motors seal out dirt for further enhanced performance and durability.

    Maximizing your comfort is at the heart of the SM18M30 design concept. As a result, Friedrich engineers worked hard to create an exceptionally quiet window air conditioner, constructing this Friedrich AC out of multiple sound-absorbing materials. For example, extra thick rubber grommets reduce motion and noise within the air conditioner, while steel inner walls and vibration-dampening insulation block outdoor noise. Rugged side panels further reduce noise and prevent unwanted light from entering your room. In fact, air circulation within the unit was even optimized for quieter operation. Engineers designed this Friedrich Kühl model to draw air inside through four different vent locations, as opposed to a single point.

    Flexible Installation Options and Multiple Safety Features

    Adding a window AC to your home can seem risky, but the Friedrich SM18M30 is exceptionally secure and safe. This Friedrich window air conditioner comes with all of the necessary hardware and instructions for conveniently installing the air conditioner through a wall, as well as heavy-duty mounting hardware for window installations.

    Once installed, this Friedrich window AC includes EntryGard anti-intrusion protection, an insect barrier, and a protective rear grille to give you peace of mind and allow you to relax and enjoy the AC’s exceptional cooling power.
