The Trane Mitsubishi Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) hyper heat products work very well with the local climate in the greater DC area when compared to a typical residential heat pump. The ability to provide 100% heating capacity at 0-5°F (product depending) means supplemental electric heat is not needed in most applications - saving on installation time & money, energy consumption, space requirements for an additional unit (as well as added maintenance), and long term energy spend.
With the industry and local codes stressing electrification and reduction in fossil fuel usage, the Trane Mitsubishi Hyper heat products are becoming the solution for many commercial and residential applications.

It is important to note that VRF and heat recovery are not eligible for prescriptive Pepco incentives. It must run through the custom path. The installer also must enroll in Pepco/Dominion’s service provider program.
