Custom Fit Your Home - Benefits - The Unico System

The Unico System is a small-duct high-efficiency cooling and heating system ideal for any home. The flexibility of the ductwork and ease of installation
make it a perfect fit, providing superior comfort, draft-free, even temperatures, and reduced humidity—without compromising your home’s design and aesthetics.

Benefits for Your Custom Home

Fits Your Space

The Unico System uses less than one-third of the space than a traditional system, which means more usable space in your custom home.

Superior Energy Efficiency

The Unico System uses one-third of the surface area of traditional ducting, meaning our ductwork has one-third less thermal loss.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Unico ducting is so tightly sealed that allergens and other contaminants are less likely to get trapped and blown back into the air.

Quiet Performance

Our supply tubing is designed to be as quiet and efficient as possible, using a nylon inner core with insulation that absorbs sound. Our air handlers isolate noise and vibration with sound-deadening insulation. While you’ll feel the comfort our system provides, you’ll hardly notice it’s running.

Draft-free, Even Temperatures

The Unico System uses a principle called aspiration to create a gentle suction around itself that draws the room air into its stream of cooled air. This delivers draft-free, even cooling, from room to room, floor to floor, and floor to ceiling.


Lower Humidity

The Unico System removes up to 30% more humidity than traditional air conditioning and heating systems. So you can keep your thermostat a few degrees higher in the warmer months to achieve the same level of comfort, while spending less on energy costs.

The Right Fit for You


The Unico System delivers the highest-quality standards for all custom home builders—offering a compact size and reliable, quality design, which is essential when making any dream home a reality.

Unico also offers design services that provide a free design layout tailored to a custom builder’s exact specs, including load calculations, duct design and layout, and a materials list, which allows for an easier permitting process.


Homeowners get draft-free, even temperatures with The Unico System, which uses aspiration to gently circulate conditioned air throughout the room. The system is whisper-quiet, thanks to sound attenuators that absorb vibration, so homeowners don’t notice the system, just the comfort.

Homeowners also can match their décor with custom outlets. The Unico System’s outlets are small, come in a variety of different finishes, and can even be painted to match your home’s aesthetic.


When planning an ideal, custom floor plan for clients, many architects find that a traditional HVAC system limits their design.

Unico is a small-duct high-velocity system that can be custom fit to your design. This flexibility allows even the most intricate plans to come to life without having HVAC get in the way.

Unico training is also recognized by The American Institute of Architects, which offers continuing education credit when completed.


The Unico System allows contractors to have an easier installation process than with a traditional HVAC system. The system’s sleek mini ducts are small enough to fit in between plumbing and electrical infrastructure, where traditional bulky ductwork cannot.

Unico also offers excellent training, which gives contractors the right tools and know-how for proper installation, ensuring The Unico System performs at its best.
