Where Can A Bulkhead Air Conditioner Be Installed?

Bulkhead air conditioners are an ideal choice for spaces where ceilings are too low or too high to allow for a cavity, such as apartments and homes. They are slim and can be unobtrusively installed in dropped ceiling areas above kitchen cabinets or built-in robes.  These efficient and quiet heating and cooling system is perfect for single rooms such as bedrooms and living rooms. Their bulkhead cavities also dampen operating noise.

Aesthetically speaking, bulkhead installations are a great way to upgrade a room’s decor. Whether it’s used in a new or renovated space, the grilles lend a stylish, modern look to the area. Here are some examples of different bulkhead installation positions;

Where Bulkhead Installations Work Best

Split System vs Bulkhead Air Conditioning Installation

Bulkhead air conditioning installations are best for new homes and renovated spaces because the space is free and open to work on. The additional work building out the cavity is easier and cheaper because you don’t have to worry about existing structures getting in the way.

On the other hand, setting up a bulkhead air conditioner in a finished space is more complicated. As it requires extra installation work like plastering and painting, wall-mounted split system installation might be a better solution.

If you want a concealed unit with an attractive finish, however, a bulkhead installation can still be achieved in completed spaces.

    Really glad I chose Ready for my ducted aircon install. It wasn’t a straightforward job for them but they were professional and communicative and we love our new system. I’ll be recommending these guys to everyone!

    Very happy with the great work from the whole team at Ready Electrical! My split system was in desperate need of a clean and Greg was able to send a team out to my place the very next day. The guys did a fantastic job making my aircon look and function as if it was brand new, and they were also so thorough at keeping the space clean with lots of drop sheets / tarps. Thank you for the great work...

    Greg & all his team provided us with an excellent service to install a new ducted aircon system a couple of weeks ago. There was great communication throughout the quoting process and the install was seamless with the team leaving the house very tidy. We needed a slight tweak to the system after using it for a few days and it was sorted out straight away with great efficiency. Highly recommended.

    I could not fault Ready Electrical and Air Conditioning. I have neglected my split system for over three years and yesterday it started leaking. Found Ready on Google this morning and from the first phone call, the job was completed in around three hours. Technician was friendly, clean, and he took the time to show me how to clean it every three months - not years. I would use them again.
