This article shows the installation of Bulkhead ducted air conditioning systems in a residential house in Brisbane. It is a large multi-level house with a flat roof and transverse beams that make it impossible to install a normal ducted system. The house has 10 x ducted bulkhead systems running from 3 x Daikin Multi Outdoor units. The use of the Daikin multi outdoor units reduces the number of outdoor units required and the overall total AC capacity. The multi outdoor units are configured so as to share the daytime air conditioning load with the night time load.
Education experts recently called for air conditioning to be installed in all classrooms in Queensland after hotter than ever summers across Australia in 2012 and 2013.

The continued calls for air conditioning in learning environments comes from years of research which has uncovered a link between decreased learning and information retention in hot temperatures.
