The Friedrich Breeze Series BR0412W1A Single Zone Wall-Mount Ductless Split System features an 11000 BTU Cooling and Heating Capacity, 11.8 EER, 17.8 SEER, Quick Connect Line Sets and Thru-the-Wall/Window Installation.


  • Breeze Quiet

    Breeze systems are quieter than window or thru-the-wall units because the compressor noise is outside in the condenser unit. All you hear indoors is the fan. And, outdoor noise intrusion is also minimized because the small window and wall openings can be well insulated.

  • Breeze Installation

    The revolutionary, patent-pending quick connect line set makes installation faster and easier than many other room air conditioner solutions. You'll spend less time getting the system up and running.

  • Breeze Efficiency

    Breeze takes energy efficiency to a whole new level with variable capacity Inverter Technology. A large Breeze unit can function as a 12,000 BTU unit or as a 24,000 BTU unit or anywhere in between. It can switch capacities as you need it to so that it's always operating as efficiently as possible.

  • Breeze Comfort

    Breeze is comfort. Continuous air sweep and 4 fan speeds distribute air throughout the space. And Breeze has multiple operating modes including cooling, dehumidification, fan only, heat and auto which will switch between cooling and heating as needed to maintain the desired temperature.

  • Breeze Style

    The Breeze indoor unit comes in a light, neutral color so it can blend in with its surroundings and the outdoor unit is sleek and attractive but small enough to conceal if desired.

  • Breeze Flexibility.

    Breeze works in some places where other air conditioners can't be installed—interior rooms and rooms without windows or outside walls. Installation options are numerous: thru-the-wall, thru-the-window, rooms without windows, basements, second floors, even some attics.

  • Breeze Mobility.

    Unlike traditional ductless split systems, Breeze can be disconnected and moved. Remarkably, this is one split system that you can take with you.

  • 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.

  • The advantages of Inverter Technology

    Breeze™ features variable speed compressors and fans (called Inverter Technology), which reach the desired temperature faster, maintain it more accurately and reduce energy consumption with fewer compressor startups.

Friedrich Breeze BR0412W1A Reviews & Ratings

Breeze Series BR0412W1A 4000-12000 BTU Single Zone Window/Wall-Mount Ductless Split AC/Heating System with 12000 BTU Heat Pump, 11.8 EER, 17.8 SEER, Quick Connect Line Sets is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality from the start Purchased the items based on advertised features such as the relative ease of installation and the very quiet operation. The room we were trying to manage is an addition to the regular ranch house and because of its construction makes it difficult to cool and heat, thus the Breeze seemed like a perfect fit. A quick review of the package upon arrival revealed a fairly strong attention to detail as the serial numbers of the main components were labeled on the outside carton, on the individual boxes, and on the units themselves. Decided to drill the 3 inch holes in the inner and outer walls somewhat off center so that they would be in line with the intended path of the connecting line. This worked out well as it reduced the amount of angular bend needed to accommodate the installation. Decided that a strong support might be appropriate during connecting line installation and placed the unit on a ladder somewhat in line with the hole in the wall to ease the installation process. We found that having 3 individuals to support the overall process worked well. The most significant concern was the potential damage to the line and the extra pair of hands and eyes helped to insure that it did not happen. Installation of the indoor unit went pretty much as expected. Prior notes on installation by others suggested that the mounting of the indoor unit cover to the wall fixture might be challenge and we can confirm that it was. Spacing of the connecting line within the indoor unit is limited so clearing out some extra plaster helped ease that problem. Eventually getting an extra push on the unit got the job done. For the outside line we had about 4 ft of extra connecting line which we just looped before connecting to the outside unit. Prior to securing the connecting line it was passed thru a 4 inch downspout which we used as a camouflage for the line, (see photo). Placed the outside unit on the pad provided. Found that it was quite sufficient especially since we embedded it in the stones that were about 1 inch in diameter. Unit ran right out of the box and while our experience so far is limited the care taken to properly package the unit should speak well for its long term performance. Super quiet and we've tested both heat and cool with no problems. Photos include package with outer box cover removed, inside unit attached to wall, downspout with connecting line embedded within and the outside unit with the extra connecting line loop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent HVAC - One of a kind patented connection This heat pump works great and did not require an HVAC guy to hook up. If you are handy you can do it and save a LOT, plus it has a great warranty and is very dependable. I replaced 2 Mr. Slim Mitsubishi units that have been nothing but a nightmare and required MANY service calls. If this one were to have a problem the warranty is great and it would be easy to swap out the unit. I highly recommend this unit IF you can get one. They are in such tight supply due to demand I had to wait a long time to get one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall happy, but several QC issues This got quite lengthy, but I wanted to give a thorough review of the install and what I ran into... I'm in the process of building a climate controlled workshop out of two bays of a detached four car garage. Total area is 16'x22'. I'm pretty handy, but hemmed and hawed on this purchase, debating on trying this DIY solution, or hiring a pro. Finally pulled the trigger and bought it from AppliancesConnection on 4/8/2014. The final mile trucking company delivered it on 5/9/2014. I had previously watched the installation video, read the install instructions, and read every review for tips. On Saturday, I decided to start unboxing it, and see how far I could get along without assistance. I'm happy to report that I was able to install this completely by myself. There's one step where a helper would have been handy - final tubing bend and attaching to the wall. Total install time was 4 hours. However, probably half that time was spent wrestling with the wall mount and the poorly designed/stupid hose routing. (More later.) First step, remove the mounting bracket. Trying to be overly cautious, I aligned the mounting bracket on the provided paper template, only to find that the holes didn't line up. It appeared that the 3" hole location is what's really critical, so I just traced the actual hole locations on the paper template. Not a big deal. However, all of the holes measure 15" across. What? Wall studs are 16" on center. If you have a good stud finder and are really careful, you can hit them on the 15" measurements. I added a couple of extra screw to be on the safe side. I decided to use the recommendation of an Amazon review from August 1, 2013, to cut a second hole next to the first one to help with hose routing. I bought a cheapie 3" hole saw solely for this project (Vulcan 942341OR Carbon Hole Saw with Mandrel 3"). Despite the mixed reviews, it worked great on the two cuts through drywall, but struggled a bit on the exterior cut through hardiplank. However, all clean cuts. I unrolled the cable (Freon line) and figured this is where I would need help. However, I strapped the inside unit to a rolling chair and slowly fed the line through the hole. The cable had a natural curve to it, so I fed that part facing down. Every few feet I would go around to make sure nothing was kinking. Got it within a foot of the wall and rested it on top of a ladder. Here's where things got interesting. The cable holds the Freon line, wiring, and condensate drain hose. From the right side of the unit, it travels down and makes a 90 degree turn to the left. The 3" hole is on the left, so the through wall option is supposed to make a fairly sharp 90 degree turn through the wall. However, you can't make a 90 degree turn. There's a bending shape to use, but it's for gradual turns, like 6" diameter. Cutting the second interior hole was helpful here, but there was zero chance of getting this unit to sit flush to the wall. The main problem is that space where the cable runs from right to left is extremely tight. Even without the hole through the wall, the cable bulk protruded from the back of the unit 1/2-3/4". No amount of force could get this the cable fully into the space provide. The power cord can route on either side, so I ran that out the right side to give as much clearance as possible. As I'm wrestling with getting this mounted, I'm thinking of more than a few ways that this could have been better engineered: - extend the unit housing by an additional inch in the back and lengthen the mounting plate catches - or instead of running the cable 90 degrees from the right to the left, run it 90 degrees straight out of the back of the unit On top of this, the inside unit rests on the top mounting clips by gravity and then is supposed to snap into place on the bottom mount with plastic clips from the above. What in fact happens is the cable pushes the unit from the wall on the bottom, slightly moving the whole unit upward. Even if you could get it mashed against the wall, there's no positive pressure on the bottom clips. The clips should snap from the bottom side at the least. I had read a review about someone not getting it to sit flush, so they finished it with trim. I was planning on doing this and was mentally looking at the curves, then it hit me. This is for a garage shop. What do I care if it's flush to the wall? I added a small bracket to the top wall above it and secured to the mounting bracket. If this was in a house where it would be plainly seen, I would be very unhappy. This install was on top of an 8' wall. Outside, there's a good 6' of foundation, so not a ton of excess line. I ran it outside to the left for a couple of feet, then down, and back to the right. Where it turns back to the right, I cut out the condensate drain line. I ended up doing a single 18" loop behind the unit and used the attachment clips to secure this to the outside wall. Attaching the Freon line didn't go as smoothly as shown in the video, but after a few tries, I could hear the slight "hiss" as it engaged. The outside unit is heavy and I used a dolly to get it into place. When I set it on top of the mounting pad, the pre drilled holes didn't align. The pad is plastic, so not a big deal. Final step is to attach the electrical cord retention bracket and outside cover. Each of these is supposed to be mounted with #8 x 3/4" screws. I don't know what size holes were drilled, but no amount of force could get these screws started. I finally broke out a tap and die kit and enlarged the holes. Operation - the whole time I'm working with this, my biggest fear was that I'd inadvertently kink the Freon line. I started it up and was doing a few things before I realized it was blowing, but not cooling. I went around back and the outside unit was running. My heart sank. I went back inside to find it blowing cool air. There's apparently a couple of minutes delay between starting the unit and the cooling starting. It happened between my trips outside. It's mentioned in other reviews how quiet this is. It's crazy quiet. I was a little concerned about installing this and having rear neighbors complain about the outside unit. It's extremely quiet as well. Maybe about the level of a box fan on medium. Very pleased with that. This garage project is missing a wall, so I can't test how fast it knocks down the temperature. Using an infrared thermometer, I was getting readings of 86 degrees ambient temperature and the air coming out of the A/C was 50-55 degrees. I plugged it into a Kill-A-Watt meter and let it run for three hours. It used 2.75 kwh during that time, running constantly. We pay about 10¢/kwh, so running non-stop for three hours was about 28¢. The Energy Guide says it costs $78/year to run and I believe this will prove true once it's in an enclosed, insulated room. While finalizing the install, I took the cover off of the outside unit and found a significant about of condensation (typical humid day). It didn't click in my mind when I made the line connection, but there's several inches of copper Freon lines without insulation. They were cold to the touch and dripping with water. I'll be adding some foam insulation here. This is where the maintenance is accessed, so no spray in foam insulation. Final verdict - Can't speak for longevity yet, but all in all a good buy. If I was installing this inside a house, I would plan on having to add trim around the unit to cover the gap. Despite the install difficulties I mentioned, I'm happy with the unit for the relatively low price. However, if you keep a swear jar, the cursing you do during the install might offset the savings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worked right out of the box I installed this product a month ago and it worked just like the video. The delivery guys were helpful also. They made me check everything once the box was delivered. The first thing I did (without professional help), I installed the indoor bracket. I did put the line set through the wall though. The only problem that we did have was that the line set which ran across the bottom of the indoor unit in the cut-out slots, was real tight against the wall and we had a heck of a time pushing in onto the bracket. When we did finally attach it to the wall bracket, everything else went according to plan. I did have help installing the whole unit, because I needed a new outlet for the unit to plug into. The unit runs on 115 volts, so it just needed a regular outlet. Once the outlet was installed, we drilled a 3" hole in the wall and put the line set through it. The out door unit was mounted on the base which was included with the unit. Once this was mounted and placed where we needed it to be, the line set attacked to the out door unit perfectly. We then made sure that the drip hose was cut from the line set to let the water run into the ground. Next we put the cover over everything on the out door unit, went back into the house and turned on the unit. The cool air felt so good. The whole process took about 4 hours to complete. Like I said, the hardest part was mounting the indoor unit, but other than that, we are planning to get another unit for a different part of the house. You cannot go wrong with this unit.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.
How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covegrey.
How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.
Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.
What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.
Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.
May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covegrey product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.
Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
When does my warranty start?
Depending on the type of coverage you own, an extended warranty begins at the conclusion of the shortest portion of the manufacturer’s warranty. If the manufacturer’s warranty was 90 day labor and 1 year parts, the extended warranty would begin on the 91st day and continue for the duration of the warranty period. All replacement, commercial and accidental plans begin on the date of purchase.
Why does my plan say "under $1000"?
Some plans carry a dollar value on them. This means that your product's purchase price, excluding tax, delivery and accessories is below the listed price on the contract. It's simply a classification based on the price of purchase of the product under warranty.
What does an accidental plan cover?
If you have added Accidental Coverage to your plan, this plan shall cover unintentional damages as a result of: impact, liquid damage or unintentional physical damage. Accidental Coverage does not cover intentional damages of any kind to the covered product or losses due to theft. Accidental Coverage does not cover willful damage, misuse, damage due to neglect, drops over 6 feet, fire damage or full immersion in water.

Accidental Coverage does not cover damage caused by the use of a product in a way the manufacturer never intended. Coverage for this plan shall begin 30 days after the date of purchase of the covered product.
Is my service plan worldwide?
All plans carry a worldwide option at no additional charge. Contact a sales professional for further details.
Who do I contact with further questions?
Please contact a sales professional at 1-800-299-9470.
