Air Conditioning for your Od House

AC for old houses without harming architectural integrity.

The UNICO Solution

     The UNICO system is used to add modern central air conditioning to older homes without using unsightly metal ductwork or soffits. It’s been a proven reliable method used in over 500,000 homes. The UNICO system provides quiet, draft free central air (with an optional heating component). It fits into older homes where conventional heating and cooling units can’t. Its modular air handlers install easily into attics, crawl spaces or closets. The small flexible supply ducts route simply above ceilings, below floors or through wall cavities. And by eliminating the need for unsightly metal ductwork, the UNICO system fits beautifully with your homes aesthetics.

     Most commonly this system is retrofitted into existing homes. These homes can be 50 to 100-years-old and are worthy of qualifying for placement on the National Historic Home registry. So, a low-profile, non-invasive approach to cooling the home is often preferred. The flexible small ducts weave through tight paces-ceilings, walls, even floors, so there is no need for costly, messy renovation. Despite the design of your home, the UNICO system brings the possibility of air conditioning without compromising the architectural integrity of your home.

     This small duct approach outperforms conventional cooling systems by utilizing a patented high velocity stream of air. This air is delivered quietly and seamlessly using 2” outlets. The system design also achieves the removal of more than 30% relative humidity over conventional systems due to the efficient cooling coils.

What People Are Saying

  • Excellent and prompt service.  The workmen were professional and helpful in their explanation of care and service of the equipment.

  • I want you to know how pleased I was with the entire experience.  From the initial meeting with Chris through the installation of my new A/C unit.

    - Sondra S.( Shaker Heights, Air Conditioning Installation July 2017 )
  • Installers were spot on time at 8 am, took care not to track dirt into house, and were both courteous and friendly.  Excellent quality work to boot!

    - John S.( Cleveland, Air Conditioning Installation, June 2017 )
  • I have had several projects from Verne & Ellsworth, across boiler replacements, heating system installation, and air conditioning system set up and install.  Each of these times, Bill Hann takes a ton of his time to talk to my wife and I to learn about the issues we’re having, explain the root causes of those issues, and suggest fixes that we know will prevent the issues from coming back – not just paper over the issue temporarily.  Lastly, he always delivers on time – onsite when he says he will be, fishing when he says he will – and always makes sure every aspect of the job is completed, from material removal and set up, to equipment install, to clean up after the project.  A++ and highly recommended!

  • The unit is working very well.  The installers were very professional, showed me how everything worked, and cleaned the basement beautifully.  I would never have even known they were there.  Thank you again.
