The Unico System has been featured on several episodes of PBS’ This Old House — and several of the show’s hosts use it in their own old houses — because it’s a natural for older, architecturally unique homes. Because it eliminates the need for invasive demolition and preserves the aesthetics of the home, it’s the perfect retrofit solution.The system’s air handlers and ducts fit into tight spaces so little or no remodeling is required.
Unico, Inc., was founded in 1985 by a group of HVAC contractors with extensive experience in high-velocity, mini-duct installations and sales. Headquartered in St. Louis, Mo., the company is dedicated solely to producing its indoor air handler and flexible mini-duct system that offers more options than any other conventional heating/ventilation/air conditioning (HVAC) system. The Unico System is designed for use in existing buildings with inadequate ductwork (or no ductwork), as well as for use in new construction.
The company’s products have been successfully used in historic restorations, custom construction, commercial retrofit, and industrial applications. Five applications are offered — standard cooling, chilled water cooling, electric add-on heat, heat pump, and hot water heating — and the system is available in three sizes, to ensure that you achieve the best performance possible for your design.
