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.


Description:

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.

Friedrich YM18N34 Reviews & Ratings

YM18N34 Kuhl Plus Room Air Conditioner With 18200 BTU, 8-Way Airflow Control, 3 Cooling and Fan Speeds, Optional Wired Wall Thermostat, 24-Hour Timer & Sound Reduction Technology is rated 3.9302 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT UNIT!! Installing this unit takes a little common sense and good judgement. Once its installed properly you'll find that the noise level is low. As for Cooling the room it is powerful and cools the room fast. This A/C is programable and has numerous settings. The remote is sleek with a nice vivid screen. Construction of the unit is commercial grade. Built to last. Only real downside to this A/C is that the Wifi controlability is not ready to go yet. Stores are advertising this as WiFi ready. Poor Advertising on and misinformation on Friedrichs part. Just a helpful hint.....Get the propper size unit for your room so that its not overkill or too small.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product is a mixed bag I bought a 24,000 btu kul unit in NYC. The summers are very humid and this product does the job keeping the room kool and removes moisture. The cons of the item is that it is externally noisy but internally quiet. My neighbor complains about noise outside the house-- but it does not bother me, since my house is cool. Otherwise, I am angry that the fredrich link is advertised but cannot be purchased anywhere-- the link does not exist on itunes or anywhere else. How can A company sell the idea of remote control and then does not offer it to consumers-- its like the cart before the horse-- Fredrich should deliever--- dont sel what doesnt exist

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Secret: Wireless is Optional and Costs Extra I read the web site and loved the idea of wireless contol from my smart phone. Despite the cost - twice what other similar capacity units cost - i bought the Kuhl only to find out that wireless control is an optional feature! I thought surely this is my fault; I must have breezed by the disclaimers. I just re-read the web and no, not my fault. Freidrich is misleading customers. I'm disappointed. It's beneath the brands stature. With regards to the unit, it's quiet and effective, but the users manual is cryptic. Even the installer couldn't figure out how to use the timer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a great unit I really like this unit except for one thing that I think could be improved. The remote control is great, but I wish it would have the temp sensor in the remote instead of in the main unit. My gas stove has this and it works much better.. I have this unit mounted up high on the wall where the bottom of the unit is 8 feet from the floor. I use this in my sun room and it has a vaulted ceiling. When using the heat option, I have to set the temp to 94 degrees in order to have a comfortable temp at a sitting level. However, it works just fine when using the a/c.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from EQ08N11 has tons of high tech features but lacking practical low tech ones... This A/C looks amazing and satisfies a need I have in my small bedroom for supplemental heat so it is perfect in those respects. It doesn't (yes DOESN'T) have a way to view what the temp is in the room. You can only guess the room temp and then enter in the temp that you want the room to be. It also DOESNT (yes i said DOESN'T) have a vent to circulate the air so get ready for some dry air. The LCD screen can only display 2 numbers so be prepared to be pressing lots of buttons. The heater works but doesn't get very hot. The A/C is very powerful and overall I like the unit. I just need to deal with its faults. Oh yea, don't forget the separate $50 mounting kit if you plan to install it in a window because you don't get the louvers with the unit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from a shame Optional Wi-Fi control from a smart phone IS NOT OPTIONAL, THIS OPTION SIMPLY DOES NOT EXIST. The manual says you need a so called"Friedrich link" to enable it, well this "Friedrich link" does not exist either, the company hasn't invented it yet. Among other things, what I really hate is false marketing, what a shame, especially for a product like this that is almost impossible to return. Also, this AC is really loud. You would expect it to be at least average noise level since its $600, but really, its loud. its also VERY heavy and HARD to install. The manual is very hard to read too. I don't usually write reviews but this item is very disappointing. Pros: To be fair, it is a bit better looking then most A/Cs and does cool the room rather quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good features my unit was missing the screwdriver which was supposed to come inside the front panel when delivered so my installer used a regular screwdriver which stripped the threading. As a result the front panel vibrates away from the unit when compressor comes on. Needless to say it has been very irritating . Still waiting for a replacement front panel. Apparently it came but was the wrong panel. I hope this gets resolved soon so I may have positive feelings about buying a Fredrich air conditioner, Thanking you in advance

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed ! I bought your Kühl SS10M10 last year (2011) because it was supposed to be very quiet. It was very NOISY from the beginning and the installer said that I needed a new grill which you sent me. It cools the rooms beautifully, but It is so noisy when the cooling is on, not when just the fan is on. Later, a service person said it was the compressor that was noisy. I was so pleased with your previous generation of this model that I had for several and finally decided to get a new one. I just wished this one was as quiet as the old one I had for so many years. I cannot imagine Friedrich selling a product as noisy as the newest Kühl SS10M10. This unit has been a big disappointment, but I guess I will keep it and deal with it. Does your quality control people check for this type of problem?
