Unico Cooling System Questions
A couple of people here have Unico systems installed in their homes. Our 1920 two-story has a finished attic on the third floor. There is forced-air heating, so we have ducts, but there is only one duct on the entire floor, for two rooms and a small connecting hall! I'm fairly sure that conventional air conditioning will cool the first and second floors, but the third floor gets very hot in the summer, and I'm virtually certain that one floor vent will be inadequate for cooling, or heating, now that I think about it!
I'm quite tempted to look into a Unico system for the third floor, but scouring Unico's web page doesn't answer the question of where the compressor goes. I'm assuming that there has to be a compressor; does it go outside, next to the foundation the way a conventional air conditioner does? I understand the ducting system, but the rest of the necessary equipment is still a mystery.
