Ceiling Cassette

Ceiling Cassette Air Handler

Mini Split systems are great, but what if you don’t want the air handler on your wall? ACiQ offers the ceiling cassette air handler for customers who want a more hidden appearance and more centralized air distribution. Ceiling Cassette air handlers provide the same high-efficiency heating and cooling of a regular wall mounted unit, and a wired, wall mounted thermostat and remote are included.  Once the ceiling cassette is mounted in the ceiling, only the grille is visible for the most understated appearance.

Ceiling Cassettes are flush-mounted, which requires removal of enough ceiling material to create a 2’ x 2’ x 12” cavity for the unit. These units will fit between 24” on-center joists but are too large to fit between 16” on-center joists without modifying the structure of your framing. Additionally, Ceiling Cassettes have factory-installed, onboard pumps to lift the condensation produced by the unit during cooling.  From there, it will be necessary to construct a PVC drain system to route the condensation to a safe wastewater location. Refrigerant and wiring connections are the same as the wall mounted units.
