Why Choose a Ceiling Cassette?

Homeowners who prefer not to see the indoor air handler and have at least 9 ¼" above-ceiling clearance should consider a ceiling cassette. The indoor air handler mounts flush with the ceiling so only the grille is visible. It’s a great cooling solution for rooms with drop ceilings.

Each ceiling cassette has two branch ducts that can be run to adjoining rooms (you’ll need an additional fan for each branch). So even if there’s adequate clearance in only one room, a ceiling cassette can still cool and heat up to three rooms from a single system. If you don’t have adequate clearance, but like the idea of a ceiling-mounted air handler, see Ceiling Suspended. 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.

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 Inverter Technology, which reaches the desired temperature faster, maintains it more accurately, and reduces energy consumption with fewer compressor startups and shutdowns. It also varies the speeds of the compressor, condenser and indoor fan to provide only the cooling capacity needed to reach the set temperature.
