Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 610-265-9493 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

*amongst PTACs with make-up air

Conditioned Fresh Air

Friedrich's FreshAire ® PTAC system helps achieve ASHRAE 62.1-2013 requirements, and brings up to 52 CFM of conditioned, MERV 8 filtered, outside air into the space. Patents-pending technology uses the inverter compressor and main cooling system to optimize temperature and humidity level of incoming air.

Precision Inverter ® Technology

Precision Inverter ® variable speed compressors deliver efficiencies up to 13 EER and a 15 SEER equivalent. Compressors operate down to 20% of rated capacity, or up to 120%, matching the unit output to the actual demand of the space for increased comfort and lower energy consumption.

Widest Cooling & Heating Range in the Industry

Variable speed technology gives you the flexibility of a full line of PTACs with only two models, and offers the highest available capacity of any 42x16 PTAC on the market at over 17000 Btus.

FreshAire ® IAQ Ready

FreshAire ® IAQ is a suite of indoor air quality (IAQ) accessories for use with Friedrich Air Conditioners, all with one dedicated purpose - healthy indoor air. This product includes our patented FreshAire ® make-up system and is compatible with FreshAire ® UV, and FreshAire ® Purifier by iWave. Click here for more information on our FreshAire solutions.

The Smoothest PTAC Sound Available

The variable-speed operation of the FreshAire PTAC allows the unit to work at the optimal speed to match the true load of the room. This not only provides the best energy consumption curve but it also adds to guest comfort by eliminating the harsh start-ups associated with single speed compressors.

Comfort & Convenience

Intuitive unit controls are user friendly with easy-to-read LED display that can show either set point or actual room temperature as selected by owner. Dehumidification removes moisture in cool mode to improve comfort and reduce the chance of mold and mildew growth.

Maintenance and Installation

Modular product design ensures easy access to key components for cleaning and repairs, including washable, lift-out air filters. Surehold Front Cover System securely attaches the front each time. Unit may be installed low to the floor.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
