Corporate History

Frigidaire recently celebrated its 100th anniversary but its history dates back to 1916 when the Guardian Frigerator Co. began manufacturing the first electric household refrigerator. General Motors purchased the company in 1918 and GM’s owner, W.C. Durant, created the name, “Frigidaire.” GM made Frigidaire a subsidiary of Delco-Light in 1921 In 1929, Frigidaire introduced the first home freezer. Frigidaire made its first “room cooler” in 1929 and introduced its “air-cooled, window-type” air conditioner in 1938. In 1947, Frigidaire introduced the first top-loading pulsatory agitator washer. In 1970, Frigidaire launched the first “laundry center,” a stacked home washer and dryer. In 1979, White Consolidated Industries acquired Frigidaire. AB Electrolux purchased WCI in 1986. Frigidaire is now owned by Electrolux and is licensed by Nordyne.

Product Lines

Frigidaire heating and cooling products include residential and commercial room air conditioners, furnaces, heat pumps, and all-in-one packaged systems.

Frigidaire promotes a range 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. Frigidaire now produces the EarthDirEX geothermal heat pump, which uses the earth’s energy to control home temperature.

Frigidaire HVAC

Frigidaire HVAC products include central, window-mounted, built-in, and portable air conditioners. Frigidaire brand central air-conditioning systems range from 13 to 25.5 SEER. 

Here’s how to select the right Frigidaire brand central heating and cooling system for your home or business:

  • Consider your location, which determines your heating and cooling needs throughout the year.
  • Do you use gas or electricity for heating and cooling?

Depending upon the energy type you use, you can select a Frigidaire HVAC unit made specifically for gas or electric energy use. From there, you can select either a split system or a packaged unit, depending upon how your home or business is built, and choose a premium, mid-range, or value-priced product to meet your heating and cooling needs.
