ST. LOUIS, (PRWEB) July 18, 2005
Heating and air conditioning are the lifeline of any building project, but architects have always had to design around leaky, cumbersome ducts that eat up space. Until now.
Unico Inc., http://www.unicosystem.com, has solved a common headache for architects by developing innovative technology known as Small Duct High Velocity. This flexible duct system fits in walls, ceilings and floor cavities, giving architects design freedom for any new or retrofit project. Small Duct High Velocity technology is so ground-breaking that the Department of Energy designated it as a new product class.
The efficient performance of Small Duct High Velocity makes it a win-win choice for both architects and end-users, said Shawn Intagliata, Director of Business Development for Unico.
ÂStandard duct systems, because of their configuration, leak up to 25-35 percent of their air through seams,Â he said. ÂOur system, under the most adverse conditions, loses a maximum of 5 percent of its air through leakage. When you look at the duct efficiency of Unico, our overall system actually has a 34 percent greater efficiency.Â
Unico, in partnership with the American Institute of Architects (http://www.aia.org), is offering architects free, certified training in this cutting-edge technology. Architects who participate will earn continuing education (CES) credit in the all-important Heath, Safety and Welfare area.
Architects can contact their state AIA office for more information about training, or contact Unico at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 527-0896. A portion of the Small Duct High Velocity training course can be viewed at http://www.unicosystem.com/ArchitectsAndEngineers/AIA_SDHV_Course.ppt.
Ductwork often is an afterthought for architects, but with Small Duct High Velocity, it now can add flexibility and efficiency to any project.
ÂUnico will take any architectÂs plan and provide a no-charge layout based on needs,Â Intagliata said. ÂRegardless of what an architect needs, Unico can provide an air-delivery system that delivers perfect comfort under any conditions.Â
Unico Inc., manufacturer of flexible Small Duct central heating and cooling systems, is dedicated solely to producing quality home comfort products. Because the Unico System is designed for new construction and existing buildings with little or inadequate ductwork or where superior comfort is demanded by the owner or specifier, installing the Unico System is always a possibility for meeting indoor comfort needs. Unico Inc. continues to promote the renovation and restoration of historic sites, homes and places through a partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
