Get Back to Nature in Aylett VA

As idyllic settings go, Aylett VA ranks pretty high. The community sits along the winding Mattaponi River, just outside a state forest. The roads are lined with trees and the air is alive with the sounds of birds. The river forms the border between King and Queen County and King William County, which is where central Aylett is located. A turnpike runs past town, providing easy access to the state capital, Richmond.

Aylett Area History

King William County was formed in 1702 and took its name from King William III of England. Before colonists arrived, the Mattaponi people inhabited the land. The county courthouse, located in the unincorporated community of King William, was built in 1725. The brick building is the oldest U.S. courthouse in continuous use, though a newer complex, designed to match the historic building, is now used for the majority of court business. A county history museum is located in one of the old offices in the courthouse. The museum is open weekends from March through November.

Zoar State Forest outside Aylett is open from dawn to dusk for hiking, canoeing, fishing and picnicking. The 378-acre property was part of an estate dating to the 1700s.

The cultural experiences of Richmond are about 30 minutes away on U.S. Highway 360, but many people also like to head north of Richmond for a visit to King's Dominion theme park in Doswell. The 400-acre park includes more than a dozen roller coasters and a water park.

Aylett VA Ductless Air Conditioning

The extremes in Virginia weather make climate control a necessity. Today's choices go beyond ugly, noisy window-mount units and pricey central heating and cooling systems. With just one hole to the outside of the building, Mitsubishi Electric's ductless air conditioning, ductless heat pumps and ductless mini split systems offer total control over heating and cooling. The simply designed indoor units mount high on the wall, leaving windows clear to the beautiful view.

In Aylett VA, ductless HVAC systems are right in several situations: older buildings with no room for ducting; converted living spaces that would require ductwork and a more powerful furnace, heat pump or AC; workshops, guesthouses and bonus rooms; and renovated commercial spaces. Individual thermostats make it simple to create custom zoning to conserve energy. Additionally, products from Mitsubishi Electric are Energy Star approved for their ultra-efficient operation.
