UNICO to Present at 2023 NAHB International Builders’ Show

Cobalt Creed, the direct-to-builder division of Unico, Inc. the leading manufacturer of The Unico System small-duct central HVAC system,  presents at the NAHB’s Building Systems Council Lounge in Las Vegas, NV on Tuesday, January 31 from 12:30 to 1 PM.

“We are pleased to again be a sponsor and presenter at the International Builders’ Show, the premier exposition event of the homebuilding industry,” said Shawn Intagliata, president of Cobalt Creed and owner/partner of Unico, Inc.  “The IBS attracts the very best in the trades and we’re delighted to learn, educate, and network with fellow industry leaders.”

A member of the Building Systems Councils, the leading resource for the concrete, log and timber, modular and panelized home building industries, Mr. Intagliata’s presentation, “The Spiral Aim of Small Duct High Velocity as the Factory HVAC Solution for Modular Built Housing,” focuses on the benefits of offsite integration of small duct high velocity (SDHV) central heating and cooling in modular-built homes for manufacturers, builders, and homeowners.

Long the preferred HVAC system of preservationists and architects, designers, and builders of custom homes, The Unico System is a natural fit for systems-built housing as well.  “The key feature that makes Unico the preferred choice for older, historically significant and new custom homes, namely its ability to fit into the smallest of structural cavities, makes it the perfect indoor comfort solution that can be incorporated into systems-built homes at the factory, with final connections made during onsite assembly,” States Intagliata. “This allows the home manufacturer to offer their customers pre-installed central heating and cooling with their models, avoiding the hassle and worry of ‘shoehorning’ HVAC into the home during site construction.”

Adds Intagliata, “It’s a win-win situation for all involved – the manufacturer can provide an option for central heating and cooling; final hook-ups and commissioning can be performed by the builder and/or their subcontractors with little or no training; and the homeowner gets to enjoy energy efficient, superior indoor comfort with The Unico System.”  A video demonstrating the factory integration and onsite completion of small duct HVAC into a system-built home can be viewed here.
