The comfort and efficiency of central air conditioning and heating, without compromising your home’s design.
You’ve put your heart and soul into restoring your classic home. Or perhaps you and your architect are pushing boundaries, redefining style in creating your custom home. In either case, you don’t want installing central air conditioning and heating to compromise the perfect lines and spaces. Neither do we.
That’s why we created the Unico System, a high-efficiency cooling and heating system that can be discreetly retrofitted into vintage homes or designed into new construction without the need for extensive remodeling or intrusive ductwork. There’s less mess, less dust, less installation time—and no need to “gut” your home for installation.
Small is huge. Instead of conventional ductwork, flexible supply tubing is fitted into existing wall cavities, ceilings or floors. Modular air handlers—small enough to fit into closets, attics, ceilings, crawl spaces or basements—are powerful enough to effectively circulate air throughout your home. Even though its footprint is small, the Unico System delivers the same level of cooling as a conventional system three times its size.
Whisper quiet. Our supply tubing is designed to be as quiet and efficient as possible, with a nylon inner core and insulation that absorb sound. Our air handlers are designed to isolate noise and vibration, with closed cell, sound-deadening insulation. Together, they bring decibels levels to the equivalent of a soft whisper. While you'll feel the comfort our system provides, you'll hardly notice it's running.
Draft-free, even temperatures. Traditional systems distribute air unevenly, dumping air into rooms, creating drafts and uneven temperatures throughout different parts of the room. The Unico System uses a principle called aspiration, creating a gentle suction around itself that draws the room air into its stream of cooled air. This delivers even, draft free cooling, from room to room, floor to floor, and floor to ceiling. The temperature differential is no greater than 2 degrees throughout your home.
Drier, more comfortable air by design. The Unico System removes up to 30% more humidity than conventional air conditioning and heating systems. So you can keep your thermostat a few degrees higher to achieve the same level of comfort—and that saves on energy costs.
