Experience The Latest Revolution In Room Cooling: The Friedrich Breeze
Breeze, a new easy-to-install, two-piece air conditioner (called a ductless split system), keeps it simple. Choose from 2 sizes - small or large - and whether to install it through-the-wall or through-the-window. Breeze will even reach a 2nd floor or basement. And because of its revolutionary design, you can take it with you if you move. Top these convenience factors off with ultra-high efficiency variable capacity performance and remarkably quiet operation, and it's easy to see where Breeze gets its name. Available at AJ Madison.

Breeze Simplicity
Unlike other air conditioners that have to be precisely sized, Breeze comes in two capacities: small and large. The small system works well for spaces that are 100 - 550 square feet and the large system is designed for spaces that are from 550 to 1500 square feet. Each system will automatically adjust to your needs. And, the entire system comes with everything you need in just one box: the indoor unit with the 25' quick-connect line, the outdoor unit, outdoor unit mounting pad, hardware, and LCD remote control. The box has even been specially designed to fit through narrow doorways. Best of all, the installation is a snap. Breeze. It's that easy.

Breeze Quiet
Breeze systems are quieter than window or thru-the-wall units because the compressor noise is outside in the condenser unit. All you hear indoors is the fan. And, outdoor noise intrusion is also minimized because the small window and wall openings can be well insulated.

Breeze Installation
The revolutionary, patent-pending quick connect line set makes installation faster and easier than many other room air conditioner solutions. You'll spend less time getting the system up and running.

Breeze Flexibility
Breeze works in some places where other air conditioners can't be installed - interior rooms and rooms without windows or outside walls. Installation options are numerous: thru-the-wall, thru-the-window, rooms without windows, basements, second floors, even some attics.

Breeze Mobility
Unlike traditional ductless split systems, Breeze can be disconnected and moved. Remarkably, this is one split system that you can take with you.

Breeze Efficiency
Breeze takes energy efficiency to a whole new level with variable capacity Inverter Technology. A large Breeze unit can function as a 12,000 BTU unit or as a 24,000 BTU unit or anywhere in between. It can switch capacities as you need it to so that it's always operating as efficiently as possible.

The Advantages Of Inverter Technology
Breeze features variable speed compressors and fans (called Inverter Technology), which reach the desired temperature faster, maintain it more accurately and reduce energy consumption with fewer compressor startups.

Breeze Comfort
Breeze is comfort. Continuous air sweep and 4 fan speeds distribute air throughout the space. And Breeze has multiple operating modes including cooling, dehumidification, fan only, heat and auto which will switch between cooling and heating as needed to maintain the desired temperature.

Breeze Style
The Breeze indoor unit comes in a light, neutral color so it can blend in with its surroundings and the outdoor unit is sleek and attractive but small enough to conceal if desired.

How to Choose a Room Air Conditioner
Compared to large capacity central units, room air conditioners have several advantages. The initial cost of a room air conditioning unit is significantly lower than the cost of central air. Because room air conditioners are designed for cooling small spaces, operating costs are reduced. And, room air conditioners can provide personalized temperature and humidity controls that central systems cannot.

Calculating Cooling Capacity
Cooling capacity is the critical factor in properly selecting a room air conditioner. Cooling capacity is measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs) and typical models will range in capacity from 5,000 BTUs to 28,500 BTUs.

Choosing an undersized unit will overwork the unit and it will not cool properly. Choosing an oversized unit will cost more to buy and operate and it will not dehumidify properly.

We can help you to calculate capacity. Be prepared to provide specific information on:
  • Room Dimensions
  • A simple floor plan to show the location of doors and north-facing windows
  • The number of people it will serve
  • Sources of heat such as lamps, TV and appliances
  • An explanation of what's above the intended room
  • Your insulation provisions

Cooling Capacity by Room Size
Measure the length and width of the area to be cooled. Multiply the length by the width to determine square footage or square meters. When cooling rooms with uninsulated ceilings, great rooms, or southern or western sun exposures - step up to the next BTU size.

Energy Info
This air conditioner has an Energy Efficiency Rating of 11.6 and has an estimated yearly operating cost of $172.09.

Your operating costs will depend on your utility rates and use. The estimated yearly operating cost is based on the 2011 national average cost of $.1109 cents per kWh for electricity and an estimated number of operating hours of 750 hours.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best DIY mini split I installed it in 2-1/2 hours with no hiccups. I read all the other reviews and the instruction manual and then enlisted the help of my wife and a friend (just to help place and guide the 25' tube through the 3" hole in the wall). I only cut one 3" hole in the wall. We replaced a Carrier PTAC and the quality of our life improved dramatically. The mini split is so much quieter and more attractive than the PTAC. Wish we had gone this route originally. The only reason I went the PTAC route was because mini splits (at that time) required hiring a professional to charge the unit after installation or total professional installation - at least that was my understanding at the time. I could install the PTAC myself. We listened to the horrible noise from the PTAC compressor until we could stand it no more. Then we read about the Friedrich Breeze; particularly the fact that the system comes fully charged and therefore is a DIY installation. And the install went flawlessly. Even the quick connect of the tube to the outside unit. We could not be happier. We installed it in July 2014 and it has not been off since. We use the unit continually in hot south Texas and it works quietly and efficiently. Thanks Friedrich. Great unit. 8/17/14
Rated 4 out of 5 by GREAT DIY HEAT PUMP Our old window shaker (through the wall) took a dirt nap after 25 years. Time to move into the future with this unit. I had one issue when installing it, my wall was not constructed completely flat. Not suprising because it was built by a bunch of cockeyed drunks judging by all the poor work I have had to fix over the years. Besides that, it went up with no problems. I recommend having some help and take your time to get things just right. Be very, very careful with the line set. Got everything hooked up, no problems. Turned it on and even with the windows open, we could barely hear the compressor running and the inside unit was incredibly quiet. All the functions worked properly and we couldn't be happier with this purchase. I didn't give the overall and performance 5 stars because the unit is brand new and I have no data to draw from. 10/14/15

Warranty Info

Warranties on mini split air conditioners only include parts and do not include labor. The licensed HVAC Technician who installs your air conditioner should always provide you with a labor warranty (preferably for at least a full year to compliment the manufacturers' parts warranty).

AJ Madison will only finalize a Mini Split (Ductless Split System) purchase with an authorized HVAC Technician. AJ Madison recommends the installation of a mini-split system to be performed by a trained and qualified HVAC technician with the proper knowledge and background. A trained technician will be able to judge the best location for the air handling (evaporator) unit and also the correct size for the area the unit will heat and/or cool. For assistance with all your technical needs please contact our technical department at

Should you experience an issue during the installation or the initial startup of a unit please do not contact the manufacturer. You should have the technician that installed your system contact either AJ Madison or the manufacturer. We cannot accept any service or warranty calls from anyone but a licensed HVAC technician. We have a full technical support team available to help you throughout the installation process.

AJ Madison, Inc. cannot be held liable for improper installation and operation of any product purchased from our company.
