Air conditioning is a luxury that individuals have been accustomed to for a good while now. Initially, it used to be this big window unit that looked bulky and weighed a lot, but over time, modern technology has allowed for sleeker, aesthetic designs. Now, people buy air conditioners to suit their interior design requirements based on color, model, tonnage, energy efficiency, etc.
The modern types of air conditioners available in the market are –
- The standard split air conditioning system (this is the most common variant)
- Central air conditioner
- Cassette AC
- Window air conditioner
- Geothermal air conditioner
- Ductless mini-split
- Portable air conditioner
- Smart air conditioner
- Hybrid or dual fuel air conditioner
What is a cassette AC?
Cassette ACs work quite similar to the wall-hung split AC units, only, cassettes are installed directly into the ceiling instead of on the wall. The indoor unit is fitted close to the ceiling, and it directs the conditioned air through up to four sides of the indoor unit. Its outdoor unit is mounted outside, the same way a conventional wall-mounted split AC system unit would be.
Where to install a cassette AC
Cassette units are quite unobtrusive, and they come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and capacities, so there is reasonable freedom in choosing where to install them. However, cassette units are usually appropriate for larger areas. This is because they need a large space on the ceiling.
Also, a location that allows clear, balanced airflow is preferred for cassette units. Its outdoor units must be mounted in a stable place where it will not vibrate and where there is plenty of free space on both sides to allow airflow.
How does a cassette AC compare to other AC units?
The performance of a cassette unit is usually more powerful than a wall-mounted system. This is why they are preferred for commercial or industrial use, for larger areas. Cassette units also tend to be more costly than other systems.
