Features & Benefits
The Unico System has a number of features and benefits that set it apart from all other central heating and air conditioning solutions. As the world's leading air management system, The Unico System provides Superior Indoor Comfort in all applications.
Fits in Any Space
All across the country home owners are enjoying the high performance and superior comfort of the Unico System. No matter when the house or building was built or what the physical configuration, installing the Unico System is always a possibility – without compromising the design or architectural integrity. The Unico System is ideal for heating or cooling buildings with:
- Electric Heat
- Hot Water Heat
- Chilled Water Loops
- Heat Steam
- Radiant Floor Heat
- Inadequate or No Ductwork
- Limited Space
- Inadequate Cooling on Upper Levels
- Baseboard Heat
- Radiator Heat
The Unico System uses less than one-fourth of the space in the built environment than a traditional system. It can deliver up to 12 tons of air conditioning in the same space as a 3-ton traditional unit. The aesthetics of your home are maintained with the Unico System – walls are not marred by metal registers that streak or stain. Small, subtle outlets are available in round 5” outer diameter or slotted ½” x 8” versions, each blending perfectly into your design.
Draft-Free, Even Temperatures
The Unico System has a lower sensible heat ratio at standard conditions and has 30% more moisture removal at steady state conditions, which results in a 10% lower relative humidity in the room. When a conventional system operates, it dumps air into the room (picture below left), creating up to a 6 degree difference in temperature across the conditioned space. Through an air principle called aspiration, The Unico System air enters a room (picture below right) and creates a gentle suction around itself that draws the room air into its stream of air. Aspiration creates an even, draft free environment. This has the net affect of lowering the effective room temperature by 2 to 3 degrees. From room to room, floor to floor, and floor to ceiling, the temperature differential is no greater than 2 degrees from where you set the thermostat. The illustration below shows the Unico System with a slightly higher room temperature but even temperatures.
Little or No Remodeling Needed
The Unico System fits where other conventional heating and cooling units can’t – with little or no remodeling required! The modular air handlers and coils can be easily installed into attics, ceilings, crawlspaces, and closets. The flexible small ducting can be routed through existing ceiling, floor or wall cavities – eliminating the need for unsightly and noisy metal ductwork! Because of all our design features, there is no need to “gut” the home for installation. The process is less disruptive, there’s less mess, less dust, and less installation time. Without the installation requirements of a traditional heating and cooling system, the Unico System saves time and money on your construction.
The Unico System outperforms conventional heating and cooling systems by utilizing a patented high velocity stream of air. This air is delivered quietly and seamlessly into the room using 2" outlets or the 8" x ¾" slotted diffuser.
While you will feel the comfort of the system, you won't hear it. The air handler is designed to isolate noise and vibration. Each module of our system is insulated such that the unit itself is quiet. In addition, our uniquely designed supply tubes are lined with sound-dampening, spun-bond nylon, providing you with quiet comfort.
Sound-dampening supply tubes deliver draft-free heating and cooling.
Removes 30% More Relative Humidity
The Unico System provides greater humidity removal with the superior and efficient design of our cooling coils. The Unico System cooling coils are two times as thick as traditional HVAC cooling coils, moving air from the conditioned space slower through the thicker cooling coil. This allows the hot air from the space to stay on the super cold Unico System cooling coil longer. This results in up to 30% greater humidity removal. Lower indoor humidity creates an indoor environment that is perfectly comfortable.
