Friedrich 12000 BTU Window / Wall Air Conditioner CP12G10

Why Choose Friedrich As you shop for the perfect room air conditioner, you may encounter some familiar brand names. You've seen them on toasters, refrigerators, microwaves and washing machines. Not the Friedrich name. Because air conditioners are the sole focus of their company. They don't manufacture light bulbs or televisions. They make air conditioners. You'll find a range of choices: room, portable, ductless split systems, to name just a few. Their product pages will help you determine which type of air conditioner and installation best meet your needs. For quality, performance, efficiency, choice and service, Friedrich is the name to know. Before you make this important purchase, find out what makes Friedrich air conditioners different. Durable, Quiet, Efficient Friedrich air conditioners are hard-working and hard-wearing. Their commercial-grade products are the first choice for tough environments, from oil rigs to the Kennedy Space Center. Constructed from the highest-quality materials and components, these units are built to exacting standards - yet they are among the quietest and most energy-efficient available. How to Choose a Room Air Conditioner Compared to large capacity central units, room air conditioners have several advantages. The initial cost of a room air conditioning unit is significantly lower than the cost of central air. Because room air conditioners are designed for cooling small spaces, operating costs are reduced. And, room air conditioners can provide personalized temperature and humidity controls that central systems cannot. Calculating Cooling Capacity Cooling capacity is the critical factor in properly selecting a room air conditioner. Cooling capacity is measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs) and typical models will range in capacity from 5,000 BTUs to 28,500 BTUs. Choosing an undersized unit will overwork the unit and it will not cool properly. Choosing an oversized unit will cost more to buy and operate and it will not dehumidify properly. We can help you to calculate capacity. Be prepared to provide specific information on: Room Dimensions A simple floor plan to show the location of doors and north-facing windows The number of people it will serve Sources of heat such as lamps, TV and appliances An explanation of what's above the intended room Your insulation provisions Cooling Capacity by Room Size Measure the length and width of the area to be cooled. Multiply the length by the width to determine square footage or square meters. When cooling rooms with uninsulated ceilings, great rooms, or southern or western sun exposures - step up to the next BTU size. Room SizeBTUSq.

Good Product and Experience Overall
Posted:6/26/13
Pros: quiet/efficient/appearance
Cons: na
"So far the CP12G10 has proved to be a good unit (I bought 2 for my folks, installed Through-the Wall). Haven't had a lot of use yet, but both seem to operate fine, nice and quiet with efficient cooling. Appearance, both inside and out, are a huge improvement compared to the units they replaced. Fairly basic units, but basic is good for my folks (and myself)."

Good A/C but slow delivery
Posted:8/5/12
Pros: easy installation
Cons: wish it could accomodate thicker walls.
"This is the second one of these I've ordered in as many years for different apartments. Easy installaton and decent unit. Slow delivery from AJ via trucking company both times - 1 1/2 wks to the mid-west. I finally purchased a spare window unit locally while I waited for delivery of this one. Otherwise very happy with this model and AJ's on the phone support."

not powerful

"The units were sized correctly, but had a hard time cooling off the space. Very quiet, but not powerful. Maybe mine were defective?"

A cool machine!
Posted:6/7/12
Pros: quiet efficient and not bad looking
Cons: install pack is not for vinyl windows
"The Fredrich 12000 BTU unit was the right choice for my studio apartment. It is quiet, efficient and not bad looking. The only thing limiting this review to 4 stars is that the installation pack assumes a traditional wood window and my windows are a modern vinyl clad type. We spoke to Fredrich installers and they had no real suggestions for this style. My local installer and I had to modify the installation to make it work-but we got it done."
