The Cassette Air Conditioner style has some similar aspects to a Split System, but is a lot more difficult to clean. The head unit is located on the ceiling where a split is located on the wall. The condenser or outdoor unit can be similar in looks but is generally mounted on the roof.
Cassette units are typically mounted in teh middle of the room and has 4 outlets to disburse air in all directions. Due to the ability to move so much air, these units are more suited to large areas. You however will see them used in caravans and in smaller sizes.
Like the Split System, the Cassette can be subject to all the same sorts of issues as far as dirt, dust and mould is concerned. Whilst the filter system is slightly better designed than the Split, all the same sort o problems can occur.
One of the main problem areas of the Cassette is the drainage as sometimes this is pumped out. Additionally the drainage follows the whole area of the coil which is basiclly 360 degrees. Special knowledge of these units is important to be able to clean safely and effectively.
There is certainly a special way to clean these types of Air Cons and it is not recommeded to be completed to untrained personel.
