Have a small space where you’d need some good air conditioning? The Friedrich Chill premier window air conditioner could be the best window air conditioner for you. It’s got a decent cooling capacity of 6000 BTU, which means it’ll be able to service an area that’s as small as your bedroom, and since it’s got support for a built-in Wi-Fi connection, you’ll also be able to control it through your phone or an app. Make sure to get to the end of the review to see whether or not it should be your next pick for an air conditioner. Also, have a look at how it compares to the most popular air conditioners on the market today.

Why We Like It – Friedrich Chill Premier

The Friedrich Chill Premier 6000 BTU AC unit is one of the best options you can look into especially if you’d prefer having a “smart” air conditioner over a more traditional model. Once you set it up properly, all you’ll need to do to change the room air temperature is issue a voice command, giving you complete control over your indoor climate. If you just need a simple portable unit, consider the Forty4 Small Oscillating Tower Fan.

Pros
  • Wi-Fi enabled
  • Low power needs
  • Timer for Controlled Use
Cons
  • Only suitable for small rooms

Performance

Weighing just 45 pounds, the Friedrich Chill Premier air conditioner is almost 20 pounds lighter than the Frigidaire 8000 BTU Air Conditioner, meaning it’s significantly easier to lift and move around during installation. The window AC unit doesn’t have as much cooling power to facilitate a large room, as the leading inverter A/Cs have, but it should be enough to cool down your bedroom as soon as summer comes around. A similar model from the same brand that can cool a larger room is the Friedrich Kuhl. The Chill Premier has got two, 2 directional small air louvers that you can use to have more control over airflow, and it also features three cooling speeds to choose from for the perfect indoor climate.

Energy Efficiency

Similar to the Friedrich Chill CP06G10B window A/C, this Friedrich window unit has a cooling capacity of 6000 BTU and doesn’t really take much electricity to run. If you however think it does, then you could as well opt to schedule when it should and shouldn’t start functioning through its inbuilt timer. This will make it a lot more energy efficient than it already is, and to make this even more convenient, you can decide to switch on its money saver setting, to have it only operate the fan when cooling – something you certainly won’t be able to do with the LG LW8016ER.

Filtration

The Friedrich Chill window AC unit has got a standard mesh air filter that allows it to remove any kind of unwanted, solid contaminants from the air that it releases into your room. The antimicrobial air filter is washable, and unlike the Frigidaire FFRA0511R1, you will get a check filter alert whenever it’s time to wash or replace it.

Durability

Similar to most air conditioners of its size and capacity, the Friedrich air conditioning unit is backed by a 1-year warranty that covers both parts and labor. This means that if you suspect your new unit has issues at any one point in time within a year after you make your purchase, you shouldn’t really hesitate to contact Friedrich’s customer service desk, and they’ll be sure to send over a qualified technician to help sort things out.

Value

The fact that the Friedrich Chill A/C unit is considered a smart window air conditioner, similar to the Frigidaire FGRC1044T1, means that you can opt not to use the remote control that comes with it, and instead use an app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer to convey instructions to it. This is of course because the unit is Wi-Fi enabled, and is, therefore, able to connect to the internet. To make things even better, the unit can be controlled through voice control, but to do this you’re going to have to connect it to your Smart Home Hub. Once this is done, you’ll just have to speak your instructions to Amazon Alexa, and voila!

Wrap Up

Having complete control over your room temperature brings with it benefits that include increased productivity, and this is vital especially if you’re in a work environment. If this is what you’re after, then the Friedrich Chill Premiere will definitely not let you down. As you’ll see in the customer reviews left by customers who bought it through Amazon, it’s one of the few window air conditioners that’s received a lot of 5-star ratings, and for pretty good reason.
