The Friedrich P09B ZoneAire portable air conditioner provides cooling air virtually anyplace, anytime without permanent air conditioning installation. This model also works well with almost any type of window, including casement windows. Like many portable air conditioners, the P09B has full electronic controls and a remote for easy use and added convenience. This dual hose portable air conditioner provides 40% faster cooling than single hose units.

Friedrich Zoneaire portable air conditioners use a bucket less system to remove excess condensate through the exhaust hose. Under high humidity operating conditions, a back up reservoir will hold excess condensate. A water fill light will illuminate on the control panel and the unit will shut off automatically.

Portable air conditioners are a great option because they give you so much flexibility. Easy carry handles and casters make moving these air conditioners from room to room much simpler. A Friedrich portable air conditioner can be installed quickly. If you had an emergency or problem with your HVAC system during the dog days of August, you could quickly set up one of these units to cool your living areas. You also can use these for supplemental cooling for dorm rooms, work shops, offices, attics, basements, computer rooms, and sunrooms.

Customer Q & A

Q1: Do you fill with water if so where? It has a water fill indication
A: This is a common question. No, you will never have to add water to the unit. Whether in dehumidify or cooling mode, it will produce and accumulate water in the reservoir in the back. This will need to be emptied to keep the unit functioning correctly. It should shut off or at least, the compressor will kick off when the tank is full. You empty via the small drain plug at the very bottom of the unit backside. You should also see an indicator light on the control panel to let you know when the tank is full and needs to be emptied. Hope that helps!

Friedrich Portable Air Conditioner Reviews

Friedrich P09B Portable Air Conditioner

The Friedrich P09B is a very solid and dependable portable air conditioner. As a dual hose portable air conditioner, you do have some added weight over a comparable single hose model but this also means you have greater cooling efficiency since cooled air for your room isn't being diverted to cool the motor and internal assembly. With what has become standard digital features and easy operation, the Friedrich P09B is an excellent unit for most rooms in your home and works well in some office spaces, server rooms and home additions that lack central air.

What I liked about the Friedrich P09B

One of the best attributes of these two units is the dual hose intake / exhaust set up. The hoses are very easy to retract and store and generally, the additional hose translates into only very minimal additional setup. However, the benefits are more substantial. Instead of actually extracting some of the air in the room and pushing it outdoors, the Friedrich P09B draws in outside to cool the unit itself. What this means for you is no negative air pressure that is commonly associated with single hose portable air conditioners. So instead of creating an slight air pressure gradient where air will seep in under doors and around windows, the P09B circulates all of the air it draws in from your room. Overall, this leads to faster and more efficient cooling of any well insulated space.

During our testing, we ran this unit for several hours a day for about a week. The unit worked very well and you could feel cold air from the unit almost to about 20 feet away. The unit did fill up with condensate water and eventually automatically shut itself off, but we were in a large space with some outside air was circulating back into this particular test space.

The digital controls are simple and fairly straight forward, and the dehumidifier function is comparable to that of many stand alone units, if not better. Not only does it cool but it also helps keep indoor humidity levels in check. This is particularly important allergy and asthma sufferers who are trying to control mold and/or dust might growth in their homes.

What I did not like about the Friedrich P09B

One observation that we made is that the compressor is going to run within a few degrees of the temperature you set for the unit. There is probably a 5 degree window, but this is not terrible different than comparable models.

With this model, as with all of the smaller models, you need to keep your space in mind. If you do not adequately match BTU's with the size and additional heat sources in your space, you may find smaller portable air conditioners can not effectively cool your space. However, this is true for all portable air conditioners.

While Friedrich has long been a name commonly associated with window air conditioners, they have used some of the same technologies to develop these portable models. As backup units or as primary cooling units that can be moved from room to room, Friedrich Zoneaire portable air conditioners like the P09B can provide you with long lasting cooling relief from hot, humid summer temperatures.
