Friedrich’s Announces Kühl Room Air Conditioner
Originally published: 08.28.12 by HVACR Business Staff
Friedrich recently introduced its 2012 Kühl room air conditioner with optional Wi-Fi control. The company said it is the first room cooling solution that can simplify building operations management and curtail energy consumption in dorms, apartments, commercial and industrial facilities.
“Kühl’s new wireless capabilities open up a whole new dimension of building energy management,” said Jane Deming, Marketing Manager for Friedrich.
Facilities management personnel can remotely control units including turning units on or off, adjusting set points, creating custom 7-day operating schedules and accessing operating data.
Additionally, 2012 Kühl units can be grouped and managed together for zone cooling or building-wide control, eliminating energy waste conditioning unoccupied spaces and conserving expensive personnel resources since most unit control features can be handled remotely.
Kühl is the first Smart Grid enabled room air conditioner, which offers professionals additional ways to maximize energy control and savings, the company added.
It is a commercial grade product constructed with robust materials like heavy-gauge galvanized steel, rifled copper tubing and high-tech aluminum fins, and incorporates components, like fully enclosed fan motors that will extend the life of the air conditioner.
Kühl’s superior filtration system absorbs odors and reduces ozone as well as other volatile organic compounds to achieve up to a MERV 6 effectiveness rating, the company said, and EntryGardT adds anti-intrusion protections and secures the unit to its sleeve.
