Before getting started

Identify the locations where you will mount the indoor module and place the outdoor module. Keep in mind, there is 25’ of connection line for connecting indoor and outdoor pieces, so locate them accordingly. You cannot add additional length if they are too far apart.

Placing the indoor unit

It is recommended that you install the indoor module on an exterior wall within 6 feet of a properly rated outlet for the system you are installing. The BR0412W1A plugs into a 115V 15A outlet. The system should be plugged into a single circuit outlet only. Typically, hanging the indoor module above or adjacent to a window will provide a great location. NOTE: You should not drill through the window header (part of the rough framing) located directly above the window opening.

Placing the outdoor unit

The outdoor module should be placed on a level surface with adequate clearance from items like shrubbery, solid fencing or other air conditioning equipment that can impede airflow to the module.

The outdoor module must be at least 12” from the wall for proper airflow. The mounting pad provided with the system will raise the module off of the ground 3”. The fan should face away from the building.

DO NOT PLUG IN INDOOR UNIT until you have completed the entire installation process.

CAUTION

SHOCK HAZARD - DO NOT PLUG-INindoor unit until all installation work is completed! Connect to a single dedicated circuit sized for the load.

DO NOT kink or bend refrigeration line-setless than 3” radius – A connecting line bending guide is provided.Line-setis under high pressure – DO NOT Punctureline-set.

DO NOT Heat line-set.

Always follow all local and national codes when installing equipment. Obtain the help of trained, skilled worker where necessary.

STEP 1 - Determine how you will connect the indoor and outdoor modules. There are two options available:

OPTION 1 is to drill a 3” hole through the wall to pass the connecting line through.

OPTION 2 is to use the Friedrich SimpleSill™ kit to pass the connecting pipe through the window. The SimpleSill™ is an optional accessory available where Breeze is sold.

DO NOT PLUG IN INDOOR UNIT until you have completed the entire installation process.

Now that you have determined where the modules will be placed, it is time to install the Breeze air conditioning system.

STEP 2 – Hang wall mount bracket

Using the paper template as a guide, locate two studs behind screw hole locations in the template. It is preferable to mount the hanging plate on studs. If two studs are not available, utilize anchors appropriate for the wall type with a combined weight capacity of at least 60 lbs. Standard wood screws and drywall anchors are provided.

If you are installing the system by drilling a 3” hole through the wall (Option 1), mark the location of the 3” hole centerline on the wall as well.

STEP 3 – Drill hole (Option 1) or mount SimpleSill™ (Option 2).

Always follow all local and national codes when installing equipment. Obtain the help of trained, skilled worker where necessary.

Option 1: Drill hole Through-the-WallInstallation

Drill 3” hole through the exterior wall.

NOTE: This should only be done by qualified installers. Consult local and national codes before drilling any holes. Mark the hole location on the indoor wall using the template. (If locating unit above a window or door, make sure the hole is above structural header)

Using a stud finder, scan area around desired hole location for pipes, ducts, electrical conductors and structural elements. Relocate indoor unit mounting location as necessary to avoid interference.

Using a 3” hole saw, drill hole through wall from inside toward outside. When hole saw cuts through inside wall, stop drilling. DO NOT drill the entire 3” hole from the inside to prevent insulation and exterior wall damage.

Depending on the type of insulation, it might be necessary to trim excess insulation prior to completing the hole. Once insulation is removed, continue drilling from inside until center drill bit of the saw just penetrates the outside wall.

TIP: Tape a bag to the wall directly below hole location to catch drill debris and dust or use a shop vacuum while drilling.

Complete 3” hole from outside of the home by locating center spiral drill bit penetration. Using the 3” hole saw finish drilling through the wall from the outside of the home.

NOTE: Wall mount bracket ships mounted to the back of the indoor unit with a single Phillips head screw. Remove screw to release the bracket for installation.

Option 2: Window Installation Using Friedrich SimpleSill™

1.Be sure window sill is clean and free of dirt and debris. With the window raised, place bottom seal gasket (trimmed to window width) firmly against window sill

(adhesive side down). Expand the SimpleSill™ 1” greater than the width of the window and install the securing pin. Place one end of the SimpleSill™ into the window opening so it is against the corner of the window frame and sill. Raise the other side of the SimpleSill™ 6-9inches (depending on window width) above the window sill. Next, press the raised side down until the SimpleSill™ is lodged securely into position. The SimpleSill™ end gaskets will conform to the window track shape.

2.Reference Step 4.2 and pass the connecting line out the window and insert it into the connecting line form in the SimpleSill™.

3.Install top seal gasket to the bottom of the window so it will seal against the top of the SimpleSill.

4.Replace the pass through cover.

5.Insert securing pins.

6.Lower window frame against SimpleSill compressing gasket.

7.Depending on the type of window, install the appropriate security lock as recommended by manufacturer.

STEP 4 - Line set installation

5.

The Breeze connecting line set contains copper tubing that may kink if bent or formed incorrectly or repeatedly. To avoid damaging your Breeze air conditioning system follow the 3 rules below throughout installation:

1)DO NOT uncoil and recoil the connecting line set more than two times.

2)DO NOT bend tubing in a radius smaller than 6”

3)ALWAYS use the tube bending guide when making bends greater than 45°

Following these instructions is critical for proper installation and to avoid damage to the unit. Damage to the connecting line due to improper installation will not be covered by the warranty.

4.1 Option 1 (3” hole pass through)

Completely uncoil the line set as straight as possible. Starting with the quick connect end of the line set, pass the entire length through the 3” hole. (Before installation break small plastic knockout on side of indoor unit for power cord to pass through-seeStep 3, Figure 3.1).

STEP 5

4.2 Option 2 (SimpleSillwindow installation)

Uncoil enough of the line set to completely pass through the SimpleSill. Pre bend the line set using the enclosed template to match the desired shape as it passes through the SimpleSill. Place remaining coiled line set outside the window for later connection to the outdoor unit. Break full plastic knockout for line set to pass through the side of the indoor unit-seeStep 3, Figure 3.2.

STEP 5 - Hang the indoor module on the wall bracket.

Hang the module at the top first and rotate it down until the module is level with the wall. (You may need to make adjustments to the connecting line to get the indoor module to mount cleanly) The Breeze module is not designed to mount totally flush to the wall. A space of 1/8” to 3/8” may be present between the module and the wall.

The line set will sit in the recess of the back of the indoor unit when mounted.

STEP 6 - Place the mounting pad.

STEP 6

Position the mounting pad so that the mounting holes are away from the house. Set the outdoor module on the mounting pad so that the module feet align with the mounting holes. Screw the outdoor module to the mounting pad with the 4 condenser pad installation washers and screws provided (Items #7 and #8 in the Accessories List).

STEP 7 – Connect the quick connector from the indoor line set outdoor module.

1.Open lock handle on lineset connector by pulling back and rotating toward indoor unit.

2.Grasp outer lock collar on line-setconnector and pull back until it stops.

3.While holding outer lock collar rearward, push lineset connector body over base connector on outdoor unit half way and release outer lock collar.

4.Continue to push line-setconnector onto base connector until outer lock collar engages base connector. The outer lock collar will snap into position with base connector and a click will be heard.

STEP 9 – Locate the condensate drain.

The connecting line has a built in condensate line hose that removes the moisture collected from the indoor module. The hose must be located in an appropriate location for drainage. Because the hose relies on gravity to drain, it is important that the hose only points downward for the entire length of the hose.

If the connecting line is rolled to store the excess line as shown in Step 6, the drain line may be removed from the connecting line as shown below and cut to an appropriate

length.

STEP 10 – Final Preparation.

Using the supplied connecting line clips (Item #13 in the Accessories List), secure the connecting line to the interior and exterior walls as desired. 5 retaining clips are provided from the factory along with standard #8 x 1 1/2” screws and wall anchors.

For installations with the connecting line going through the wall (option 1) use the supplied filler gasket (Item #6 in the

Accessories List) to plug the hole around the connecting line in the wall opening. Additional sealing may be desired or necessary for proper weatherproofing.

Once the connecting line is secure and Steps 1-9are complete, you may plug in the Breeze system and enjoy your new air conditioner.

Routine Maintenance

Cleaning the unit:

The outer cover of the Breeze indoor module can be cleaned with a damp cloth.

Cleaning the outdoor module can be done by rinsing the module with low pressure water. Refer to friedrich.com for approved coil cleaning agents.

Cleaning the filter:
