Top Quality Unit

By  from Miami, Fl.
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

I bought this unit because of the quality Friedrich is known for. It is very well made. The unit cools very well and the heat works great. The compressor is very quiet. The only complaint I have is that the fan is a little noisy on low speed. This is a 3 speed unit, but there is a 4th speed on the display that I wish I would have had the option to purchase. All in all it is a great unit, and Friedrich is the brand I see the most in the area where I live. That says a lot.

good quality but a bit more noisy than other models

By  from new york, ny
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 4

I purchased 2 ss12510 units in 1995 and was very pleased with their perfomance; particulary their sound - a nice hum. I just replaced with them with 2 ss14n10 units and these units emit more of a buzz then a pleasant hum. The front louvers have a tendancy to rattle and constantly need to be reconfigured in order to make the buzzing to stop.

The latest Kuhl's control panel is horrible!

By  from South Fla.
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 2

Why would you change a good thing? Especially to what it is now! I have the previous Kuhl model of which's control panel has fully programmable schedule fuctions and a time display. A new cooling need came up and since I love the unit I purchased a year ago, I recently purchased the same model thinking i was going to get the same unit as before. NO! I had no idea friedrich "revamped" the kuhl model line until I saw the box when I bought it. Seemed like an upgrade at first given the box says it's fully programmable through wifi connection, awesome right? Wrong. The wi-fi as you've already read Is not available right now and when it will be its going to cost ya. Something the box doesn't mention. To boot, the unit does NOT allow a fully customizable schedule function WITHOUT THE wi-fi ADAPTER! SOMETHING THE PREVIOUS MODEL HAD! AAARRRGGGGGHHH! Like a pirate! ARRGGHH I don't know what I'm going to do since there is nothing friedrich can do until this adapter is released. I feel ripped and this will be the last friedrich unit I buy. By the way, the models I buy cost over $2,000!!! Almost forgot that I had to take it for repairs the moment I got it from a refrigerant leak from a faulty weld.

Our first Kühl AC

By  from Fall River, Ma.
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 4

Recommended Product:

Right after installing in our window the ac developed a bad rattle in the front cover, rattle was coming from the airflow louvers. We tried every thing we could think of to stop this annoying vibration to no avail. One day while making an airflow adjustment the louvers fell out on one side, some of the pins were broken. Called customer service and one new front cover was shipped out to replace the broken one. The new cover rattled worse then the old one, looks like a bad design that they need to remedy. We placed some paper towels on the sides of the louvers and that did the trick till the end of the summer. At the start of this cooling season my wife placed some work-out weights on the top of the cover and the annoying rattle went away, Now the AC sound the way it was made to sound (QUIET!!!!!!!!!!!) no more annoying rattle from the front cover. To sum it up, we love this unit it cools our whole house, this is on powerhouse of a unit with some great features. A bit on the pricey side but well worth the money!

How All AC's Should Be Built / WHERE is FriedrichLink ?

By  from New York, NY
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 4

Recommended Product:

As a longtime Friedrich fan, I was very disappointed when they started outsourcing in the mid 2000's so that they could offer several inexpensive China-Made models and "remain competitive" Thankfully, there were still their premium models which were made in the US of MUCH better grade materials. These Models were, on the average, double the price (and weight) of the foreign made units for the same BTU range and IMO, worth EVERY penny. In 6/2007, I moved into in a pre war apartment building with very small windows (20 1/4" width) in the living room, dining room area. I needed a 12,000 BTU unit to adequately cool it. There was only ONE unit that was both 12,000 BTU's and would fit in the window: The Friedrich X-Star XQ12L10A which at the time was $650. The X-Stars were very sturdy, Made in US units that were based on Friedrich's Q-Star chassis with upgrades and electronic improvements (I had owned an 8,000 BTU Q-Star for 9 years as the primary AC for my NYC Studio apartment with ZERO problems) I have since moved upstairs to a larger apartment, it's 5 years later and the 12,000 BTU X-Star still cools the (even larger) area like a champ. Three years ago, I needed a new AC for the bedroom in my new apartment. The 325 sq ft room has southern exposure, windows on two walls and the apartment is on the top floor making it warmer than average for the square footage. I decided to try one of Friedrich's "cheaper" CP Models... a big mistake. The CPO8E10 ($295) was flimsy, vibrated a great deal (especially the front panel) and was based on a Panasonic design. It lasted 2 1/2 summers before it stopped cooling last week. I had been reading about Friedrich's new KUHL units and I was very impressed with their design and features. There are two types of KUHL chassis, the smaller "SQ" which are again based on the reliable "Q Chassis" and the new "SS, SM & SL" which are larger units. I decided to purchase an 8000 BTU SQ08N10 ($675) and I could not be happier. This model combines the sturdiness of the reliable old "Q chassis" with all new electronics and a beautiful new front panel design. The compressor is virtually silent and there is ZERO vibration (Now how about a 12,00 BTU model in this size) The downside: The timer is ludicrously hard to program and the new, much touted "FriedrichLink" WiFi adapter (Even mentioned on the outside of the box) which will allow you to control your AC from anywhere using your iPhone, is NOT YET AVAILABLE. Also, even at this price point Friedrich felt the need to move production of ALL US made room air conditioners from its San Antonio plant to the company's new facility in Monterrey, Mexico in November 2007. Sigh.

Poor electronics, poor value

By  from New York City
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 1

Imagine. At $1,000 per unit, my two Kuhl window Acs cannor be programmed to reliably turn themselves on at a given time. Customer service is fine; they've visited and helped me on five occasions, none of which resulted in a "fix" lasting more than a few hours. Imagine... at $1,000 per, you don't even get the capability of a $5.00 a timer. Many advertised and promised featured do not work; seems the electronics are still under development.

I love this AC

By  from Brooklyn
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 5

Recommended Product:

I live in an unbearably hot top-floor apartment in NYC. The building is not insulated at all and the roof crawl space is directly above my apartment. I purchased the SS12N10 in the middle a 90 degree + heat wave. I had reservations about this unit because it is pricey compared to other brands, but I should note that I was replacing an 18-year-old Friedrich that was an exceptional unit. After I did the math, I realized that the purchase price of that old ac worked out to be about $40 per year. Not a bad deal. So I decided to take the plunge again. So far, I'm thrilled. Used it through a number of nasty, humid, heat waves already. It's quiet, keeps the temperature consistent and really quickly takes the humidity out of the two rooms I'm cooling. It helps to have a great retailer/installer and I have had that--no worries about getting a damaged unit or improper install. I'm hoping I get another 18 years out of this one because this is not an AC you're going to want to leave behind if you move. It is an investment, but so far, so good. Can't speak about the savings in electric costs because I have not yet gotten an actual bill, so that is why I gave it a 4 for energy efficiency; may very well turn out to be a 5.

SQ10 doesn't work!

I've had the SQ10 for three days, it kicks on cool air for five minutes then starts blowing out hot air! I received a firmware update, installed it and still no resolution. I'm tired of sweating in my own home!
