Ceiling cassette heat pumps are perfect for those who are looking to install a heat pump as discreetly as possible.  Because the bulk of the ceiling unit is hidden in the ceiling cavity with only the vents showing you can effectively hide a ceiling cassette in plain sight.

Pros and Cons of having a ceiling cassette heat pump/ air conditioner


The biggest advantage of a ceiling cassette heat pump is its discreet nature, It does not need valuable wall or floor space but rather is installed in the ceiling cavity.   Because of its location in the ceiling, it can also distribute both warm and cool air evenly through the room. Each cassette has four outlets or vents blowing the air out in all directions. Multiple ceiling cassette heat pumps can be installed in larger rooms to make sure that distribution is even.

Ceiling cassette heat pumps can be hooked up to a multi room heat pump system for larger homes.

One of the biggest disadvantages of having a ceiling cassette heat pump installed is the actual installation process which is more labour intensive than your high wall and floor models.  You will also need to have room within your ceiling cavity to house the units.  Maintenance can also be a little tricker due to the height of them.

Bonus: Power Saving Tips

Insulate Your Home Properly

To help save on energy and the cost of heating your home, make sure your structure has proper insulation to lessen the event of heat escape from happening.

Perform Periodic Maintenance

Perform Periodic maintenance as scheduled and ensure that all components are cleaned, restored and the unit is reassembled properly. Your unit will come with a manual detailing the periodic maintenance tasks you need to do. You can perform these on your own or through the help of professionals. If within warranty, make sure to call the unit provider.

Set Your Heat Pump’s Operation Times & Temperatures

Turning your heat pump’s temperature up will not heat your home quickly. It will increase your power consumption instead. Gradually heating your home is a more cost-effective way to warm your house. Schedule your heat pump’s hours of operation if you won’t need it during the entire day. Turning it on half an hour to an hour before you get home should make it warm enough for you by the time you arrive. Keep the temperature at the prescribed operating temp based on the manual.
