I don't want to disrupt this thread but, have any of you tryed to zone a unico system. I had a customer that wanted two 4 zone hi-velocity systems. I called Unico and they would not say yes or no. I installed two 4 zone conventional systems instead, oh and a full radiant floor system, SWEET.
unico is operated by a splinter group from spacepak, when they left spacepak they could not take patented designs with them. space pak has been around since like the 40`s
i have seen there original equipment still running strong
attend a spacepak seminar before you go with unico
you will see how unico grasp at straws to get where spacepak is. Spacepak is clearly a better more reliable & simpler product, trunk is far superior too.
see for yourself & dont be misled.
1man, I asked that question about zoning at the class I went to. The Rep there said Unico systems should not be zoned, instead try to use multiple systems. Something about maintaining air balance if I remember right.
I have installed spacepak and unico. The spacpaks are smaller and you only need one part number when ordering. With unico you have to order about 4 freakin parts to build an airhandler. I just worked on an old dunham-bush HV system last month. I think they are now spacepak.

What concerned me was that their "engineer" basicly told me, "if you zone it,we don't own it." I was a little nervous with zoning after that, O.K. alot nervous. I got the impression that zoning the system would lead to no warranty. I just have a hard time installing something the manufacturer will not get behind.
I can understand that 1man. I think Unico Systems aren't really meant to be zoned. Guess it's the way they're designed. I sometimes disagree with zoning, multiple systems are actually better on certain applications.
can anyone tell me which they think would be better for a 3500 square foot ranch near the shore in nj, i am so confused but have almost decided on one of the following options-the house is kind of chopped up due to several crazy addtions with lousy ductwork setup- a unico system with air and heat or a unico for the air and hot water baseboard for the heat with a boiler mate water heater( will be about$5000 more)any advice would be greatly appreciated
