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.

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!

  • 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.
