Air Time Heating & Cooling is a heating, cooling and ventilation company that is committed to providing high quality and affordable heating, cooling, and ventilation equipment, specifically Trane products, to our residential and light commercial clients in the northwest/ west suburbs of Chicago.

Excel Air is a merger of two companies, Excel Heating & Cooling and Air Time Heating, who have been serving the community for 40+ years. Because of our long history in the communities with which we work we have some clients who have been loyal customers since the very beginning. Excel Air’s client base continues to grow through word of mouth referrals, advertising with local businesses, through website and online search engines and through community organizations such as our local Chamber of Commerce.

The owners of Excel Air have a long history in the communities and in the heating, cooling and ventilation business. Kathrine Middleton is the daughter of the original owner of Excel Heating. She grew up in the business and watched her father grow his company over her lifetime. Kathrine obtained a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology and took over management of her father’s company in early 2015, and ownership after his passing. Andrew Bratko has a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree and began working in the HVAC business over 10 years ago. Andrew advanced quickly within the heating and cooling industry, becoming Lead Installer before he started his own HVAC business.

We, as a company, value being reliable, providing our customers quality products and services and being an active member of the community by sponsoring athletic teams and being a member of their local chamber of commerce. Excel Air understands that their client’s time is valuable and we respect that by providing flexible scheduling for service calls. We also understand that we are working in our client’s homes and businesses and we respect their space and time by working efficiently and make special accommodations when needed.

Excel Air is proud of our great reputation with our local community. The original owner of Excel Heating, Tom Banks, was recognized as Business Leader of the Year and was featured in the Chicago Sun-Times as a "Consumer Good Guy". Now that Excel Heating has merged with Air Time Heating and Cooling, these two businesses with similar passions for customer service will continue to serve their communities and live up to their reputation as the go to company for reliable and affordable repair and replacements of heating, cooling and ventilation equipment.

Excel Air’s core vision:  to continue to serve our local communities and to grow and expand outside the areas we currently serve and become a household name.

Excel Air’s core services: providing high quality and affordable heating, cooling and ventilation repair and replacement.

Excel Air’s core strengths: our commitment to providing quality customer service, our long history in the communities, and our base of loyal customers who refer our services to their friends and families.
