Friedrich Air conditioners Reviews

wavefriedrich logo Friedrich Air Conditioners Co. has been a trusted name since its company’s founding in 1883.

Over the past century, the products may have changed with the times, but the mission statement remains the same – quality without compromise.

Friedrich Air Conditioning Co. is a business started by a family who were actually making furniture from longhorn cattle horns. They also built wood billiard tables and fine-carved cabinetry. You can still see Friedrich longhorn furniture collections in the San Antonio Museum of Art and the historic Buckhorn Saloon and Museum.

Eventually the Fredrich family put their all their focus on refrigeration when Ed Friedrich developed groundbreaking products, which were the precursor of today's refrigeration systems.

Friedrich Air Conditioners has been part of this technology since the beginning and has come up with the creative and innovative changes necessary to keep up with the times. This is why, for generations, the Fredrich name has been synonymous with air conditioning. No matter what type of cooling system you are looking for, in your home or office, large or small. Friedrich Air Conditioners is the place where you will find it.

What are your needs

Before purchasing any air conditioner or air cooling system, you need to know exactly what you want your cooling system to do. The size or the air conditioner is directly related to the size of the space you need to cool and the temperature range of that space without air conditioning. Even the very best product can not be effective if it is not sized properly. If you live in a place where summer temperatures are above 95 degrees F, you will need a different air conditioner than a person who lives in a cooler climate. Room Air conditioner sizes are measured in BTUs per hour or BTU/h. The smallest air conditioner would be approximately 5,000 BTU/h and the largest would be approximately 60,000 BTU/h.

Sizing Wizard

This is why if you need assistance in determining the proper size unit or system for your space, Fredrich Air Conditioning provides a service called the Sizing Wizard. The Sizing Wizard help you figure the appropriate BTU/h required for your specific space.
