Because Unico is a vendor of many Blue Hawk Distributors, this was a message sent to all Blue Hawk members about the TOH giveaway.

St. Louis, Missouri (July 24, 2014)-

Unico, Inc., maker of small-duct, high velocity heating and air conditioning systems, has been selected by "This Old House" magazine to participate in its giveaway of more than $728,000 in prizes this fall. The HVAC products from Unico are ideal for use in renovations of older homes due to the non-intrusive small ductwork that allows installers to preserve the home's original architectural features.

The winner of the Unico System will receive a complete HVAC system that includes a high-velocity air handler, an outdoor inverter heat pump, a high-wall split unit, ducting, and system design. The value of the prize is $25,000.

"We participated in the giveaway last year and thought it was a great way to tell homeowners about the advantages of the Unico System," said Scott Intagliata, marketing director at Unico. "Our target customers are families who are renovating or updating older homes, particularly houses that have never had central air or heating. Our small duct system can be installed with very little impact to a house or building's architectural integrity, and owners of historic homes really appreciate that benefit."

The Unico System for the giveaway features the company's traditional small duct system together with two new products that work in sync with the system: the iSeries outdoor unit and iSeries high-wall split unit. The split unit is often used to heat and cool a room that has been added on to the original house or a porch that has been enclosed. It's also helpful for conditioning an attic room.

The Unico System offers the advantages of quiet operation, draft-free and even room temperatures, installation in tight spaces, and little to no duct leakage or thermal loss. The air conditioning system removes 30 percent more humidity from the house than a traditional system, saving energy and lowering utility bills.
