In our hot Shenandoah Valley climate, effective cooling solutions are necessary for summer comfort. Mini split heat pump systems both heat and cool homes, delivering exceptional comfort throughout the entire year.
Excel Heating and Cooling installs and services a variety of innovative air-source heat pumps for exceptional comfort and energy efficiency. These convenient systems are seamlessly integrated into new and existing homes without ductwork. This is a great option for room additions or for the entire home.
Advanced Technology for Exceptional Comfort
Mini split heat pump technology has advanced significantly in recent years, increasing home comfort and energy efficiency. These systems are quiet to operate and allow a home to be zoned. This means that you can set different room temperatures throughout the house depending on use and personal preference. Home zoning allows for greater comfort and energy savings during the summer or winter in below freezing weather.
Many Virginia homeowners are impressed by the excellent performance and comfort of mini splits throughout the summer and the entire year. They provide an effective high-efficiency heating and cooling option for just one room or an entire house.
Energy Savings Throughout the Summer and Beyond
Air conditioning systems are rated by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the unit. Since mini splits have no ductwork, there is less opportunity for energy to be lost through the ductwork. This is especially true for homes with ductwork in unconditioned spaces.
In addition, Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) heat pumps have become much more efficient in recent years, significantly reducing energy use. Excel installs a variety of equipment, including many energy efficient heating and cooling units for significant energy savings.
Dual-Fuel Mini Splits Offer Greater Freedom
Excel can install systems with dual-fuel compatibility. This allows you to switch between gas and electricity to power your heat pump, depending on price or personal preference.
