Why Choose a Ceiling Cassette?

The indoor air handler mounts completely flush with the ceiling and only the grille is visible. However, a minimum of 9 ¼" of clearance above the ceiling is required, which makes it a great solution for drop ceilings.

Each ceiling cassette has two branch ducts that can be run to adjoining rooms; an additional fan is required for each branch. So if there’s adequate clearance in only one space, a ceiling cassette can still cool and heat up to 3 rooms from a single system.

For alternative ceiling installations in spaces without adequate clearance, see Ceiling Suspended. Link to model page. Learn more about all Friedrich ductless split system configurations.

Friedrich ceiling cassettes have an energy-efficient SEER of 15.0, yet provide up to 2 tons of cooling capacity and over 24000 Btu of heat. They come with a wired, programmable remote that can control up to 16 units individually or by zones. See the full range of ductless split system features. Link to features page

Ceiling Cassette Installation

Ceiling Cassette Overview

Like other ductless models, a ceiling cassette consists of two parts, an outdoor condensing unit and an indoor air handler connected by refrigerant and electrical lines that run through a 3" opening in an exterior wall. This system requires a licensed HVAC technician to connect the lines between the indoor and outdoor components.

The advantages of Inverter Technology

Friedrich ceiling cassette ductless split systems feature variable speed compressors and fans (called Inverter Technology), which reach the desired temperature faster, maintain it more accurately and reduce energy consumption with fewer compressor startups and shutdowns.
