Friedrich 12000 BTU Wall Air Conditioner PDH12K3SF

Friedrich is known for manufacturing some of the world's most durable air conditioners. You won't believe some of the places you'll find them. Friedrich air conditioners are made from higher grade materials and components that delivery dependable operation for years. But don't take their word for it. Some of their customers are business that operate in harsh environments where equipment just has to work. Period. Oil companies rely on them to cool offshort oil rigs, and they can be found on military bases and in government offices all over the world. Friedrich air conditioners are in use at Northrop Grumman, Eastman Chemical and the Kennedy Space Center, just to name a few. If they can handle their jobs, just think how well they will perform in your home. Available at AJ Madison. NEW FRIEDRICH PTAC Quieter performance, improved airflow and higher efficiencies. COMPLETELY RE-ENGINEERED COMPLETELY RE-DESIGNED Friedrich PTACs are known for being feature-rich and backed by an AC-focused manufacturer. Their new models build on these strengths, with advanced engineering that delivers impressively quiet performance with expanded comfort settings. Here are just some of the enhanced features: Reduced sound levels: The two-motor design - one motor inside, one outside - allows the indoor motor to run at slower speeds, which sharply reduces indoor sound levels. Plus, the motors are permanently lubricated for quieter operation and increased durability. More comfort choices, quieter operation: Their 3-speed fan (cooling and heating modes) has nearly five times the surface area of a typical PTAC fan, allowing for more uniform airflow over a wider path. The result is faster, more even air distribution and quieter airflow. Guests/residents will appreciate having more comfort options. Plus, the soft start/stop fan delay reduces transitional noise usually associated with compressor start-up. Increased energy savings: Models have EERs up to 12.0 and COPs up to 3.4. Separate thermostat limits for cooling and heating provide greater control over temperature ranges. Of course, centralized desk control and compatibility with energy management systems can boost efficiency and lower operational costs. A universal heater/power cord simplifies installation, ordering: Installers can change the heat output simply by changing the standard power cord to the desired size. The optional cords connect as easily as a phone jack. Distributors can stock fewer PTAC models and optional power cords instead of numerous PTAC models. (Note: All wiring and building connections must be properly sized to accommodate the power cord.)

nice product
Posted:7/16/14
Pros: ac heatpump electric backup programmable, functions
Cons: dip switches not easy to reach or set. any dip, change requires unit to be unplugged to effect chg
"I'm using this product for a 4-season sun room recently added to the rear of the house. Since I'm in Ohio, I need heat in the fall, winter and early spring, so I picked this product because it not only does AC but functions as a heat pump for fall and spring and has electric heater coils for our below freezing winters. It has "programmable" options. Several I like are: can run off a wall thermostat, has a auto freeze protection function where it comes on in "heat" to keep the room above freezing, and you can set the fan to cycle with the compressor rather than have it run all the time. DIP switches allow these setting but the DIP switches are small and you need a jewelers screwdriver to set these."

Pros: very nice apperance nice and quite while running.
Cons: could be a little more energy effecient.
"I only gave four stars on performance because the unit is not as energy efficient as stated in the description when using the heating side of it. however, for as often as I will be using it, I think it will do just fine. it seem to be a great produet."

"i used the internet to locate the heatpump that i needed. the friedrich heatpump price was an excellant value. no alterations were necessary to install since the old one had the same size opennings. it simply slide right in and secured the heatpump to the thru wall housing and plugged it in. the representitive at a j madison was very helpful and it was a smooth transaction . shipping was fast. the truck driver helped carry the heatpump right to the livingroom. total time was 1 hour for the whole install.im very pleased and will recommend aj madison highly. thankyou very much"
