I am currently building 32Sq doubly story townhouse in Melbourne and I am at the stage whereby I need to decide on the heating and cooling type pretty soon.
I have met with x4 specialists and each one of them is offering something completely different:
1. 25KW Fujitsu split system with x5 zones. this sounds the best option probably however I've been told that I have a very limited roof space, hence max that can be fitted in is 16KW, hence i am being skeptic. price $18K
2. 12kw Daikin for upstairs with zones, 5KW Daikin unit for the lounge and 7KW Daikin unit for Kitchen and living encased in bulkhead. price $20k.
3. 14KW Mitsubishi for upstairs with zones including the lounge area downstairs, 7KW Mitsubishi unit for Kitchen and living encased in bulkhead. price $16k.
Major issue is the bulkhead need to have an access door/return air grill which looks ugly.
4. 16KW Daikin split system with x5 zones to cover the entire house price $18K.
Keen to hear any professional opinions out there, and also how to hide the access door/ return air grill in the bulkhead that it's not so visible

Usually with bulkhead units they are installed with a wider linear bar grille where as the supply air discharges out into the space in one section of the grille and the remainder of the bar grille acts as your return air intake.
As to the access panel, it's a necessity and not alot of ways to hide it with a flat ceiling, it's easier to hide it with an architectural ceiling.
