Friedrich Window-Mounted Heat Pumps - the Smart & Sustainable Choice

Did you know that Friedrich Air Conditioning has been selling window air conditioners with heat pump since the 1990s?

One of many firsts, Friedrich's Kühl continues to be the only North American-built window AC with heat pump available on the market.

A heat pump is an air conditioning system that can be run in reverse to produce heat during colder weather. What’s great about a heat pump is its energy efficiency. Heat pumps operate on electricity rather than fossil fuels and are up to 3 times more cost-effective to run than electric heat, so they’ll save you money on heating bills. Heat pumps work best when the average outdoor temperature remains at 45°F or higher, but most Friedrich heat pumps also come with electric heat that will automatically come on and operates as a space heater when the heat pump is no longer able to maintain the desired indoor temperature.

We aren't new to the AC business, in fact we've been making room ac's since 1952 and air conditioning is the sole focus of our company. We've been pushing the boundaries in AC innovation with award-winning, sustainable air comfort solutions and electrification before it was cool!
