There are several types of cooling systems that can be used in a home to provide comfort during hot weather. Some of the most common cooling systems include:
- Central air conditioning: This is a popular choice for larger homes and provides cooling through a system of ducts that circulate cool air throughout the home.
- Heat Pumps: These systems are run purely off of electricity, they run cool air through your home’s ducts to help circulate it. It is a popular choice, as it both heats and cools the home.
- Ductless mini-split systems: These systems consist of an outdoor compressor and an indoor air-handling unit, which are connected by a conduit that contains refrigerant. They are ideal for homes without ductwork, and can be used to cool individual rooms or zones.
The choice of cooling system will depend on a number of factors, including the size and layout of the home, the climate, and personal preferences. It is important to choose a system that is appropriately sized for the home and that is energy efficient to help reduce energy costs.
Here are some key features and benefits of high efficiency heat pumps:
- Variable speed compressors: High efficiency heat pumps often use variable speed compressors that can adjust the speed of the compressor to meet the heating or cooling demands of your home. This allows the system to operate more efficiently and use less energy.
- Two-stage operation: Some high efficiency heat pumps have two-stage operation, which allows the system to run at a lower capacity when less heating or cooling is needed. This can save energy and reduce wear and tear on the system.
- Energy Star certified: High efficiency heat pumps that are Energy Star certified meet strict efficiency standards set by the US Environmental Protection Agency. They use less energy than standard heat pumps, which can save you money on your energy bills.
- Quiet operation: High efficiency heat pumps often use advanced sound-dampening technology, such as insulated cabinets and vibration-reducing mounts, to operate quietly and minimize noise.
- Improved indoor air quality: High efficiency heat pumps often have advanced filtration systems that can remove airborne pollutants, such as dust, pollen, and allergens, from the air. This can improve the indoor air quality of your home.
- Eco-friendly: High efficiency heat pumps use less energy and produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than standard heat pumps. This can help reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable environment.
Available RebatesIf your prior heat source in your home is electric, you are within the boundaries of PSE, and you have a heat pump that isn’t working properly, or have no heat pump currently, you may qualify for a PSE Rebate.
