The Friedrich units are equipped with multiple cooling speeds, which allow you to really crank up the cooling power when you need it.
Moreover, they come equipped with a fаn-оnlу ѕеttіng for those times when it is warm but not too hot. The fan setting can help you save money on your electricity bill by turning off the compressor in the ac unit.
This unit comes with a handy programmable timer, which means that you can set it to turn on before you return home from work. It also has a built-in function, which puts the machine in safe mode if there is a brown out or black out. This model also comes with a handy remote.
The Friedrich models are known for other nice features like top-notch moisture removal. This is particularly useful in hot and muggy climates. You also have access to louvers with multi-directional settings. And finally, the Friedrich comes with an excellent antimicrobial air filter, which removes bacteria and odors front the air.
The 10000 BTU unit can cool a room up to 450 square feet. It requires 115 volts of power and 6.8 amps. It has a cord that is about 6 feet long so that you can situate the unit where you need it.
The Pros and the Cons
The good news is that the Friedrich models have relatively high Energy Efficiency Ratings (this one is 10.8). That means that you can save some cash on your monthly energy bills.
In spite of the terrific features on these units, there are some consumer complaints. Some reviewers stated that the plastic casing on the ac unit is prone to breaking during installation.
Other consumers complained about the level of noise from this unit. Bear in mind, however, that all room air conditioners will make some noise since the compressor is in the room with you.
Overall, the Friedrich is a solid choose for a wall/window air conditioner unit.
