Smoky Mountain Home Offers HVAC Challenge
Guy Cox, owner of GLC Services Inc., was asked to heat and cool the structure. "My intention was to have the system run a lot to control the humidity and that would get the moisture out," said Cox. "I calculated that we'd need 8 to 9 tons. But I undersized it and used a 5-ton chiller, so it would run a lot to keep the humidity down." He used equipment supplied by Unico.
In addition to the chiller, Cox installed several 1.5-ton air handlers throughout the home. The handlers were placed above one of the bathrooms, behind knee wall ceilings, and in the basement mechanical room.
"The Unico System afforded us a lot of creativity," said Cox, including its flexible mini-ducts.
