The Friedrich CP06G10 room air conditioner is part of the chill series offered by this manufacturer, which was recently recommended by a leading consumer reporting agency. What first strikes you is the design. It’s sleek, lightweight and comes in designer white. Intended to cover an area of up to 250 square feet, this air conditioner can be installed in a window or through the wall to help save space.
The CP06G10 couldn’t be easier to use. Once you have selected the desired temperature you can then choose from one of 3 cooling speeds. In addition you can make use of the swing control feature which will send the cool air in 4 different directions. For further ease of use, the unit will operate in fan only mode and helps to remove the stuffiness many people suffer from in warm weather.
It’s possible to ‘set it and forget it’ with the CP06G10, because Friedrich has included a timer that will allow you to set the controls up to 24 hours in advance. The unique money saver feature is also very useful. Once the compressor stops so will the fan, which helps save energy. This model is also energy star rated.
What We Liked
The CP06G10 is fitted with steel retaining wire which secures the chassis to the sleeve. This provides EntryGard anti-intrusion protection and prevents ‘kick-in’.
- Easy to Use Controls
This model is equipped with push button controls and also comes with a fully functional remote control with LCD display.
- Hassle Free Maintenance
The CP06G10 has a washable filter that helps eliminate bacteria and mold, so you don't need to spend on replacing filters. In addition, it has an easy slide out chassis, making it simple to remove from a wall or window.
- Moisture Removal
If humidity is an issue this model also acts as a dehumidifier. It has the capability to remove just over 43 pints of water in a 24 hour period.
- Saves Money
This air conditioner is energy star rated and also has a Money Saver mode (which means the fan will turn off when the compressor does), all adding to lower energy bills.
What We Didn't Like
- Noise Levels
When the compressor is working at its hardest, the CP06G10 can be a little noisy and depending on where it’s installed users may experience some vibration.
- Through the Wall Option
The through the wall option for installation on this unit has received mixed reviews. Many prefer to use it in the window, but if installed by a professional, the CPO6G10’s performance is just as good with the through the wall option.
The Friedrich CP06G10 has been highly revered for its ability to cool the air (if used in the correct size area), and it also received good reviews for the dehumidification feature. Considering the list price, this unit is a very good buy. The mere fact it can be installed in both a window and through the wall is an additional feature that many other manufacturers cannot boast.Review by AirReflect ©
