Unico system for older homes

We installed a Unico hvac system, which is ideal for tight spaces, in this home circa 1919. It’s quiet and provides lower humidity. We also replaced the fiberglass ductwork with sheet metal so fiberglass is no longer blowing in the air stream.

A Clean System Means Better Air Flow

Here’s the blower wheel inside a furnace before and after cleaning.
Dirt that accumulates as little as 1/16 of an inch can reduce air flow by 30%!

Should I close HVAC vents in rooms that I don’t use?

No, you should not close the vents.  You still need to partially condition the room.  Closing the vents causes temperature extremes which are hard on the house, causing wood and drywall to expand or contract.

What can I check if I have no heat or ac?

If you have no heat or ac,  first check your circuit breakers and try resetting the circuit board.  Check to make sure the batteries in your thermostat are still good.  Check your filter, if it’s really dirty it can shut the system down.  If none of this resolves the issue, call us.

Why does my furnace and air conditioner bang when it comes on or off?

Why does my furnace and air conditioner bang when it comes on or off?

The ductwork is undersized, delivering or receiving less than needed airflow to the blower motor. Sometimes blower speeds can be adjusted which reduces this problem.   Otherwise, the ductwork needs to be calculated and additional ducts may be needed.
