Friedrich Air Conditioning Co. has unveiled built-in Wi-Fi capabilities for its Floating Air Series ductless split systems, available for the Premier and Pro wall-mounted and Pro ceiling cassette models.
Friedrich’s latest efforts to pioneer integrated Wi-Fi capabilities will help drive greater demand for ductless among U.S. residential and commercial customers looking for air conditioning convenience and control. With Friedrich Wi-Fi-enabled Floating Air Series models, users can control their system from anywhere anytime using the FriedrichGo app to adjust settings or power their units off and on using their smartphone or other connected device. FriedrichGo also is compatible with Amazon Alexa or Google Home for voice-controlled convenience.
Ductless is a way to heat and cool indoor environments with precise temperature control, efficiency and quiet operation. While ductless systems have traditionally been used in spaces that don’t have existing ductwork, such as attics and basements, their popularity as a whole-home solution and for mixed-use commercial spaces continues to show growth. Flexibility to scale and right size ductless systems to the needs of a space along with cost saving of room-by-room control is driving interest among customers who view them as a smart solution when compared to all-or-nothing central air systems.
