Presumably this is always prenominal. Mostly AC units.
Something that's "ceiling-mounted" isn't necessarily flush with the ceiling, which is why I've put it second.

入管 for 入国管理局, 映倫 for 映画倫理機構, 外専 for 外(国)人専門, 直電 for 直接電話, and so on? This expression is also found, for example, at (quoted reference)."
While not that common, 天埋's meaning is not exactly obvious. so this is probably worth adding. I'm not sure 天井埋め込み is needed as an entry. It's rather A+B.
