In this day and age, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to the different heating and cooling systems. If you are in the market to purchase a new heating system it’s good to know your facts. With so many options on the market for heating and cooling systems, it’s worthwhile knowing the differences between wall mounted heat pumps and ceiling mounted heat pumps, so you can make a good decision on what is the best one for your home. Regardless of the type of heating system, you choose it is a worthwhile investment.

We’ve created this guide to compare two common heating systems.

So what is the difference between ceiling-mounted heat pumps and wall-mounted heat pumps?

Let’s find out.

What are ceiling-mounted heat pumps?

The ceiling mounted heat pumps or ceiling cassette system is a great choice if you want effective heating or cooling without compromising your wall or floor space. Rather than have a unit installed on a wall or floor surface you can have your heating and cooling system installed discretely inside your ceiling.

With ceiling-mounted heat pumps, you don’t compromise on quality, efficiency, or comfort.

The Mitsubishi Electric range of ceiling mounted heat pumps offer flexibility for different home or commercial settings. Whether it’s for a new home, older home, industrial or commercial space there is a system or ‘cassette’ that would fit perfectly.

What are wall mounted heat pumps?

A wall-mounted heat pump or high wall heat pump is a great low-cost solution, again for a wide range of areas and spaces.

Wall-mounted heat pumps are usually found in residential spaces and are one of the most popular types of heating system in New Zealand.

The main thing to consider with a wall-mounted option is the size or capacity it is capable of heating or cooling.

Wall mounted heat pumps are installed high on a wall surface, and multiple units can be installed in a home. 

At the touch of a button, you can set temperatures, timers, and much more. 

Mitsubishi Electric offers the Black Diamond Designer Series where you can customise your wall mounted heat pump to your home.
