July 22, 2010 Contractors Award Prestigious Honor To Friedrich Air Conditioning's New Kühl Line

San Antonio, TX (July 22, 2010) – Friedrich Air Conditioning's new Kühl line of air conditioners has been named the silver winner, Residential Equipment category, in the seventh annual Dealer Design Awards. The awards are sponsored by the respected industry journal,"The Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration NEWS" and are voted on by an independent panel of professional contractors.

The highly competitive HVAC Residential Equipment category seeks the best products for the customer's application with special emphasis on ease of installation and service. The panel of contractor judges who review the products and name the winners said Kühl is constructed with robust materials, including heavy-gauge steel, high-tech fins, a high-efficiency compressor and a heavy-duty, enclosed fan motor. Steel inner wall and extra dense insulation materials block outdoor noise while new firm-grip handles simplify chassis installation and removal. The judges also praised Kühl's electronic maintenance indicators and keypad lockout settings. Kühl may be installed either in a window or thru-the-wall.

One judge said, (Kühl is a) "very nice, high-tech unit. The ability to program the system operation as well as having auto changeover on the units with heat is a very nice feature."

A second judge said, "This will be a good unit for those.applications that really want a solid, dependable and quiet unit." A third judge gave the product a thumb's up, saying, (Kühl is) "really manufactured with both the customer and servicer in mind."
