Unico iSeries HVAC Line Named “2014 Money-Saving Product”

May 14, 2014

Unico’s iSeries line -- multi-split outdoor units that connect to both high wall units and ducted air handling units at the same time -- has won accolades for its efficiency in heating and cooling areas where space is at a premium. “Buildings” magazine identified the iSeries as a “2014 Money-Saving Product,” an annual awards list that will be published in the June issue.

The iSeries products include refrigerant-based outdoor inverter units that range in size from 1 to 4 tons and feature a high SEER rating, making them incredibly energy efficient. The outdoor unit compressor matches the power request of the indoor units. This creates more efficiency and energy savings because the compressor isn’t constantly cycling on and off and attempting to achieve full power. The multi-split outdoor unit has an operating range from -25F to +122F.

“This recognition by ‘Buildings’ is a great honor, and we hope it will help increase awareness of our iSeries as the best choice for challenging projects such as tight spaces, or retrofits that require preserving the original architectural features,” said Scott Intagliata, Unico’s marketing director.

Unico added the iSeries to its offerings in January, through a partnership with Italian manufacturer Argoclima S.p.A, a leading producer of HVAC products. The iSeries offers customers more options when retrofitting heating and air conditioning in an older home, or when designing a new home. Unico’s indoor components work in conjunction with iSeries indoor and outdoor components. For example, the iSeries outdoor multi-split can be matched with Unico air handlers and high wall units, allowing both to be used with a single outdoor unit. Now, iSeries high wall units can condition one area that has no space for ducting, while a Unico small duct system can supply the rest of the structure, providing highly efficient and quiet draft-free comfort.

Unico’s revolutionary flexible small ducts weave through the smallest spaces—ceilings, walls, even floor joists -- allowing original architectural features to remain in place and keeping ductwork out of sight.

Unico to Feature Small Duct Units at ACR Show

February 06, 2014

Unico has long been known for its unique small-duct, high-velocity central heating and air conditioning systems. The products are a popular choice when retrofitting heating and air conditioning in an older home, or when designing a new home. The manufacturer will showcase its products at the ACR Show in England, 11-12 February.

"We're looking forward to showing the U.K. and European markets how our products can help contractors and installers solve heating and air conditioning challenges, such as when space is limited or architectural features must be preserved," said Scott Intagliata, Marketing Director at Unico, "We have enjoyed significant success in the U.K. and Ireland, and look forward to strengthening our commitment to these markets."

Unico's revolutionary flexible small ducts weave through the smallest spaces—ceilings, walls, even floors—allowing original architectural features to remain in place and keeping ductwork out of sight. The modular air handlers and coils can be easily installed into attics, crawlspaces, and closets.

The Unico System outperforms conventional heating and cooling systems by utilizing a patented high velocity stream of conditioned air. This air is delivered quietly and seamlessly into rooms using 50mm or 65mm round outlets or a 200mm x 20mm slotted diffuser.

Another important feature of the Unico System is that it eliminates drafts and removes 30% more relative humidity than traditional HVAC systems.

"Our customers are looking for comfortable, even temperatures throughout their homes, and that's what our product delivers," Intagliata said.
