Wall hung split systems are made up of 2 separate components. And indoor unit which is mounted to the wall up high close to the ceiling inside the house, and an outdoor compressor unit which is installed outside on either on a concrete slab at ground level, a wall bracket on the outside wall or a roof bracket on the roof. These two separate units are connected by insulated copper pipes and electrical wiring which allows them to communicate a work accordingly to provide the inside of the home with either heating or cooling. To install a split system it Depends on the size, brand and power  of the unit. for small units a local power supply can be used, for larger more powerful units a dedicated power supply direct from your switchboard is required.

A Ceiling cassette system works very similar to the wall split system in the sense that it also has 2 separate components that work together to heat and cool. The main difference is the indoor unit which is mounted in the roof space above the ceiling instead of on the wall. Ceiling cassettes are more expensive than wall split systems and are generally used when there is no wall space available and when the unit needs to be completely concealed.

Ceiling cassettes are a good option for shops, offices and commercial business. The indoor unit often remains unnoticed as the bulk of the unit is hidden in the ceiling space not visible from below.

The performance and efficiency of ceiling cassettes is similar to wall split systems, however because they are used mainly for offices and commercial premises they  are more powerful than wall mounted split systems. They are best suited to when a wall split system is not an option as they are more expensive and time consuming install
