Ductless systems are proving to be of this year’s biggest trends in the North American HVAC industry.
There are plenty of good reasons why more commercial and residential customers are adopting ductless system solutions in place of old-tech, costly and bulky central split systems.
Ductless systems offer major advantages and unbeatable performance when it comes to conditioning air faster, maintaining more accurate temperatures and reducing energy costs.
They also provide a scalable solution for additions, retrofit and renovation projects where complicated ductwork installation or re-routing is not feasible.
But until now, the tremendous flexibility that ductless systems deliver hasn’t translated to the perfect fit of product line options for dealers and distributors.
Friedrich is one of the only manufacturers in North America to now offer both a top-tier and mid-tier line of ductless systems, based on the needs, budgets and priorities of its customers.
With decades of experience as a leading manufacturer of innovative HVAC solutions, Friedrich also provides comprehensive training and service to support both of its top and mid-tier ductless system lines.
Friedrich’s two distinct lines of ductless system offerings are based on SEER efficiency. The company’s mid-tier 16 SEER Floating Air Series comes in five models, with 115v and 230v / 208v heat pump units and is very competitively priced.
Friedrich’s top-tier line is the 20 SEER J Series, which is available in more than 1,000 multi-zone configurations, including wall-mounted, ceiling cassette and concealed duct models.
This series is wide and deep, supporting up to eight interior zones with one outdoor unit and customers can choose from single-zone cooling models, single-zone heat pumps that cool and heat, and multi-zone heat pumps that cool and heat multiple rooms.
These two distinct lines allow Friedrich to supply the right solution for whatever the need, and provide greater options for a wider range of potential customers looking for the best ductless solution for their new construction, retrofit or remodelling project.
Friedrich vice-president of marketing and product management TJ Wheeler: "For maximum adoption and market penetration, ductless systems need to become more readily available to not only the upper end of the market, but for all types of customers.
"By offering two complete yet distinct lines, Friedrich is expanding the opportunity for more customers to be able to take advantage of the many benefits ductless systems provide."
Friedrich ductless solutions deliver unbeatable efficiency and performance, thanks to the advantage of Friedrich’s Precision Inverter System. This system makes changes in 1Hz increments, allowing the unit to run at variable speeds and deliver the most precise heating-cooling solution.
The company offers a wide variety of Energy Star models in both single and multi-zone configurations.
Better servicing is another advantage with Friedrich’s ductless products.
The company has introduced a new wireless diagnostic tool, the DWTST. Available for Friedrich J Series ductless split systems, the DWTST connects wirelessly to a smart phone or tablet, giving contractors access to real time monitoring and diagnostics for quick service responses.
As a commitment to increasing knowledge and training for the ductless category, Friedrich offers the Advantage Program to encourage top dealers to become part of a motivated team of industry professionals dedicated to the sale, installation and support of
Friedrich ductless systems through product training, rewards and warranty benefits.
