Small Ducts – Big Cooling

You own a big or moderate sized home in Cleveland Heights or Shaker Heights and have thought: “Gee, it would be nice to have air conditioning” You probably have radiators with a steam or hot water boiler and have envied people with newer homes designed with central air and heat. You probably have made some inroads by installing one or more widow AC units in bedrooms because, let’s face it, if you can get a cool, comfortable night’s sleep, then you can deal with the heat and humidity during the day.

Then, one day, you step into the home of a neighbor or colleague from the Heights area who, like yourself, has a big to moderate sized home heated by a boiler. But this home is different; it’s cool, it’s comfortable. You’re there for a dinner party and your hosts are even using their kitchen in the summertime. How’s that possible in a home old enough to be listed in the National Historic Registry? And in Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights, a lot of the homes have surpassed the century mark or are about to pass it.

Welcome to UNICO. It’s a high velocity, small ducted whole house air conditioning solution for your home. Suddenly, it’s a pleasure to come home and use any room in the house with comfort.

As shown in the illustrated picture above (And, yes, this is from an actual installation done by Verne & Ellsworth Hann) these high velocity ducts are unobtrusive but powerful. The inner diameter of a single duct is just 2″. With the outside trim plate it’s just 5″. And even though it’s technically called a “high velocity” system, it’s actually whisper quiet. Contrasted with a window air conditioner, it’s practically inaudible.

There are many things we all do in life to achieve a level of comfort and happiness. Some are small, like a night out to a nice restaurant or bigger, like a vacation aboard a cruise line. But shouldn’t the ultimate level of comfort be experienced inside your own home? Outside it’s 85° with insufferable humidity. Inside it’s a perfect 72° with no humidity. Picture yourself relaxing in a chair by yourself or with a group of friends. There’s a glass of wine in your hands, a smile on your face, and not one bead of sweat on your forehead.

It’s a good life. A comfortable life. A house with a UNICO system. Installed with the highest of standards by the largest UNICO installer in Northeast Ohio particularly in Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights: Verne & Ellsworth Hann. Call the experts of cool at 216-932-9755.

  • Verne & Ellsworth Hann were extremely professional and efficient.  The boiler they installed works better than the old one and their price could not be matched.  Outstanding work, outstanding quality, outstanding price.
