A neutral gray front with black accenting and illuminated soft-touch controls places Friedrich Kühl Series at the forefront of room air design. Advanced digital controls intuitively provide comfort, convenience and ease of use, and allow for a range of programmability previously only associated with high-end central air systems.

At the heart of each Kühl unit, you’ll find the durable components and heavy duty construction that define the Friedrich brand: Heavy gauge steel, rifled copper tubing, high tech aluminum fins with sine wave technology, aluminum end plates that reduce corrosion, totally-enclosed commercial grade motors, high efficiency compressors, vibration absorbing technology and insulated air plenums.

Friedrich conducts rigorous performance tests to ensure customer satisfaction and safety. Run tests are performed- for up to 120 continuous days under typical, and extreme, temperature and humidity conditions. Air flow systems are tested for powerful and precise air distribution, while sound levels are measured to ensure ultraquiet performance. Premium air filters are tested for absorption capacities and efficiencies. The unit’s control software is tested for constant and reliable operation.
