High velocity air conditioning system from Unico
ICC-ES PMG listed high velocity air system
Unico's ICC-ES PMG listed high velocity air system features heating and air conditioning ducts that are one quarter standard size.
The custom system offers greater efficiency and comfort, and can be zoned, offering even greater energy savings.
Craig Messmer, director of engineering, Unico, says that what makes the system different is how it delivers air.
The Unico System features outlets that consist of a five inch diameter face plate with two inch holes connected to similar sized ducts delivering heated or cooled air.
The amount of holes corresponds to the size of the room.
Ceiling ventilation comes through ducts twice as large, or 4 inches, because of insulation.
Unobtrusive duct work is fabulous for renovation, especially for older homes and buildings.
Small duct high velocity air distribution systems have been around for years - but they are a niche product.
The Unico System is now recognised through the trusted ICC Evaluation Service PMG listings, the first in their field to be so.
ICC-ES Plumbing, Mechanical and Fuel Gas listings verify that new or innovative building products meet code requirements, exactly what Unico needed.
Many states also require a certain R-value (measure of thermal resistance) in duct work.
A higher R-value means thicker insulation and less heat leakage.
But previous codes only took flat-walled ducts into account.
The equation works differently when comparing round ducts of varying diameters.
Unico System distributor, Quantum Group, offer free training courses on small duct/small air handler systems, or SDHV (Small Duct High Velocity) central heating and/or air conditioning systems.
Unico System shows why it is the best central heating and air conditioning system for renewable and sustainable energy sources, exhibiting at Buildstore event in Swindon and EcoBuild at ExCeL, London.
The Unico System Green Series Air Handler has been installed in a high end refurbishment project, providing heating and air conditioning through small unobtrusive outlets at high level.
Unico System will be on hand with expert advice at the third annual Big Green Home Show at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre in Swindon, 29th to 31st October 2010.
A fully approved, variable speed fan motor designed for the Unico System EC Green Series air handler unit saves more than 10% of input energy whilst allowing fine control of room environments.
