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

  • Your company did an excellent job!  We really appreciated how quickly your crew worked in order to get our heat back on as soon as possible.  Everyone seemed very knowledgeable, professional and excellent in their work!

    - Marianne P.( Aurora, Boiler Installation, December 2017 )
  • Bill carefully examined the old boiler and piping, checked all the radiators and came up with a replacement proposal.  He explained two issues with the old boiler that other contractors did not notice or did not care to explain.  The first was what’s causing the rust in the boiler and how he was going to minimize the issue in the new system.  The second was how he would re-pipe the kitchen loop so the kitchen wouldn’t be so cold.  Bill addressed each and every question I had.  Although we received four bids that were comparable, we chose Bill Hann’s company because he was knowledgeable, thoughtful and detailed.  The work was completed in two days by a great installer team.  They were on time, professional and courteous.  The new boiler and piping work nicely without any issues and we now have a comfortable kitchen to dine in.  I’d highly recommend them.

  • I strongly recommend Verne & Ellsworth Hann without reservation.  Choosing the right boiler was important and proper installation was critical.  I was impressed with all aspects of the Verne & Ellsworth Hann organization.  Most importantly, Bill Hann earned my trust.  The installation team was excellent.  They were experienced.  They arrived precisely on time every day.  They explained every step of the process.  They worked as a team.  They treated my home with extreme care, as if it was their own.  The installation is a thing of beauty.  Every time I go into my basement I smile.  I now have a reliable, efficient system.  I don’t usually take the time to write recommendations, but in this case I am doing so because it is so well deserved.
