The UNICO System-Part 1

The UNICO system is a high velocity small ducted air conditioning system designed to be retrofitted into older homes where air conditioning is not present. This is the first of a 3-part blog that will detail the versatility and effectiveness of this system while at the same time maintaining the architectural and design integrity of your home.

As depicted in the graphic above, the UNICO system typically fits into your attic or crawlspace access and small ducts are then carefully and artfully installed throughout the house. This eliminates cumbersome metal ductwork and registers. Small flexible ducts are carefully and thoughtfully woven through ceilings and walls to reach the first, second and third floors of a typical house. The system is completely sealed for maximum efficiency, with air always fresh and clean.

Conventional systems often leave homes with hot and cold spots as well as drafts. The UNICO System uses aspiration air flow. Conditioned air gently mixes in with air already in the room. There is no draft and the airspaces is uniformly cooled.

Verne & Ellsworth Hann is recognized as a “UNICO Preferred Contractor” (UPC) company. We have installed high velocity systems across Northeast Ohio. Homes that are located in Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights and University Heights can often be 100-years-old. It takes a contractor that is respectful of the unique design elements of your home and has the professional skillset to accomplish an engineering challenge.

Every UNICO System is uniquely designed. There is no cookie-cutter installation when it comes to a UNICO System. Choose the contractor that always overcomes engineering design obstacles and provides superior customer satisfaction results. Call Verne & Ellsworth Hann to schedule an appointment to bring your 19th century home into the 21st century.

What People Are Saying

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

    - Charles S.( Cleveland Heights, AC Installation July 2017 )
  • 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.
