The Floating Air Premier Series is Friedrich's top of the line ductless mini split systems. Two systems are available including a 9,000 BTU system and this 12,000 BTU system. The Premier Series offers Energy Star rated systems with high SEER ratings. Friedrich FRHW123A 12,000 BTU single zone mini split system includes both the FRHSW12A3B wall unit and the FRHSR12A3A outdoor compressor. Inverter Technology is only the beginning of the standard money-saving features included with Friedrich Floating Air Premier Series ductless mini split systems. This technology offers the consumer the ability to run their system much more efficiently, and reduce energy costs all while cooling the space and reaching the desired set temperature more quickly. To help keep the room at a comfortable level, longer, the compressor runs at a lower speed instead of shutting off completely. This helps the system to maintain the set temperature, alleviating the need for the system to start up again from a completely shut down state.
One of the newest features of the Floating Air Premier Series is the FastPro Technology. FastPro Technology makes installation and maintenance a much easier, less time consuming task. FastPro gives your HVAC technician easy access to the entire indoor unit, including piping, wire terminal, the fan and fan components. The front panel of your wall unit can be propped open with sliding bolts to keep the cover up and out of the way. If more room is needed to work, there is a slide bar than can be pushed out for a wider space. This makes installation of the refrigerant lines and wiring a much more manageable, less time consuming task for your HVAC technician. Interior parts such as the return air filters and the entire blower wheel assembly are easily removed for cleaning or servicing (away from your room of installation) and re-installed quickly. Servicing should always be left for the HVAC Technicians. FastPro also gives the technician easy access to the coils for maintenance and cleaning.
The Energy Star FRHW123A mini split is a 208/230 Volt, cooling with heat pump system. The Friedrich Floating Air Premier Line has great efficiency ratings including 24.5 SEER2 and 15.4 EER. The built-in low ambient cooling capabilities will cool your space when outside temperatures are as low as 0°F. The 13,000 BTU heat pump will work hard to keep you warm. The integrated drain pan will turn on when the temperature drops below 28°F and turns off when the temperature increases to 30°F. The temperature is judged by the ODU Temperature sensor signal. As expected the rated heating capacity does reduce as the temperatures fall. This system will give you 8,000 BTUs at 17°F but with its low ambient heating capacity, will provide heat even with temperatures down to -13°F. If you are need to cool a server room or other equipment year round, this unit's low ambient cooling features make it a great choice.
Friedrich's Premier Series Floating Air wall unit feature built-in WiFi and access to FriedrichGo App for wireless control as well as Google Assistant and Alexa voice commands. The wall unit offers optimized air flow with 4-way air swing that send the conditioned air to all corners of your space. The 9,000 BTUs will cool a room that is about 600 sq. ft. Factors such as windows, doors, computers and ceiling height must be factored in when calculating the BTUs you need for your specific installation requirements.

In contrast to central air conditioning, which cools your entire house whenever the system turns on, a mini split cools only the space you want cooled, when you want it cooled! When you install a mini split system, you get all the benefits of individualized room comfort control without losing your view or having to remove and store your unit in the off season. Installation of a mini split system is permanent and non-obtrusive. Installing a Friedrich Mini Split is a relatively easy undertaking. Mini split systems do not require duct work and your system should be up and running in a few hours*.
The outdoor unit includes DiamonBlue Advanced Corrosion Protection to protect the outdoor coil from harsh environments as well as rust and corrosion. Each Friedrich mini split is pre-charged with R410A refrigerant for 25 feet of line. Additionally, the line sets can be as long as 66 feet between the compressor and the indoor unit with a 33 foot height difference. Line sets are sold separately.
*This unit must be installed by a qualified licensed HVAC technician.
The Friedrich Floating Air Series ductless mini split system comes with a 5 year parts and 7 year compressor Manufacturer's warranty. When purchased from Total Home Supply an upgraded warranty to 10 year parts and 12 years compressor (at no charge) is included. The option of adding a 5 year labor warranty to your coverage is also available (separately) at the time of purchase.
