Frigidaire offers residential and commercial air conditioners, heat pumps, furnaces and air handlers. Frigidaire, the North American division of AB Electrolux (a publicly owned Swedish company (NASDAQ:ELUX), is headquartered in Augusta, Ga. The company's brand name is licensed by other HVAC manufacturers as well, including Nordyne.

According to its 2011 Annual Report, AB Electrolux earned 2011 net sales of approximately $15 billion; major appliances in North America made up approximately $5,349 million. The report notes that demand for room air conditioners has showed especially strong growth.
The history of Frigidaire dates back to 1916 when the Guardian Frigerator Co. began manufacturing the first electric household refrigerator. General Motors purchased the company in 1918 and made it a subsidiary of Delco-Light in 1921. Later, it became known as the Frigidaire Division. In 1979, White Consolidated Industries acquired Frigidaire. AB Electrolux purchased WCI in 1986. Frigidaire made its first "air-cooled, window-type" air conditioner in 1938.
Frigidaire markets a line of residential and commercial room air conditioners. Among its offerings are window-mounted, built-in and portable air conditioners. The company also has a range of central air-conditioning systems ranging from 13 to 24.5 SEER.
In addition, the company offers heat pumps that range in efficiency from 13 to 22 SEER. Furnaces reach as high as 97 percent AFUE, although base models are available in 80 percent AFUE. This range of efficiencies is intended to meet all consumer demands for low costs, ultra high efficiency and everything in between.
Frigidaire promotes a number of features designed to improve HVAC efficiency, such as the iQ Drive and iHybrid, which respectively regulate energy use at a low level unless needed and alternate between electric and gas use as the temperature changes.
