Bulkhead Air Conditioners Installation, Repair and Maintenance

With summers getting hotter and interior design trends starting to drift away from the sterile white walls, ceilings and floors the white wall-mounted split systems of yesteryear are becoming less and less desirable. They are bulky and dominate attention in an otherwise delicately curated space. Ducted aircons aren't for everyone they require roof space making them difficult and costly to install in two or more-story homes. This is where bulkhead air conditioners come in these air conditioners can sit above closets or in their custom-made ceiling bulkhead allowing for the system to blend effortlessly into your elegantly curated home. They provide the efficiency and effectiveness of a conventional split system with the discrete inwall/ceiling design of a ducted system to create the ultimate modern home designer's aircon.

What is a Bulkhead Air Conditioning System

Bulkhead air conditioning systems are the ultimate air conditioners for homes with no roof space for a ducted system and don't want an unsightly split system cluttering their walls. But what are bulkhead air conditioners and what makes them so good? 

Bulkhead air conditioners are in-ceiling air conditioners however unlike a ducted system that blows down a bulkhead split system blows out to the side. Therefore, a bulkhead air con is typically installed in a box built into a wardrobe or wall and covered in plaster. This allows for the system to sit perfectly in homes with minimal roof space. The system then uses a series of rectangular vents to blow the cooled air out into the room. These systems are perfect for new homes with multiple floors or flat roofs and can be set up in a single-split or multi-split whole-home climate control system.

During the sweltering summer heat, nothing can be more frustrating than when your air conditioner unexpectedly breaks down.

Bulkhead Air Conditioner Maintenance and Cleaning

Bulkhead system filters can become clogged with dust and other debris after a long summer. This debris can hold onto moisture during the cooler months creating a breeding ground for mould and other pathogens that when the next summer comes around will be primed and ready to spread their spores all over your home. The accumulation of this debris in the air conditioner can reduce efficiency and increase electricity consumption, increasing your next electricity bill. To keep your bulkhead unit clean and running efficiently air conditioning technicians widely recommend you have your air conditioner cleaned annually to ensure it is working as it should and keep your home safe. Regular maintenance will not only reduce the risk of your system breaking during the middle of summer but will also extend the longevity of the system saving you in the long run. Dunn and Williams’ air conditioning technicians annual maintenance typically include the following:

  • Air conditioner cleaning
  • Inspect the bulkhead systems for any wear and tear
  • Inspect the outdoor unit for any damage or wear and tear
  • Test the refrigerant levels and regas the system if needed

  • Inspect toe electricals and ensure the safety of the system
