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.
When summer heats up we want you to be prepared with a high efficiency air conditioning system. Stay cool and comfortable at home with peace of mind that you are saving money on your bills and enjoying a comfortable cool home. Perfect Temp offers many cooling systems to satisfy your cooling needs, such as forced air systems and ductless heat pumps. Our service technicians will help you choose the right system for your home.
High Efficiency Heat Pumps
High efficiency heat pumps are designed to provide efficient heating and cooling for your home while using less energy than standard heat pumps.
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.

What are Ductless Heat Pumps?
Ductless heat pumps, also known as mini-split heat pumps, are heating and cooling systems that don't require ductwork to distribute air. They are a type of air-source heat pump that can both heat and cool your home, providing year-round comfort. Instead of ducts, ductless heat pumps consist of an outdoor unit that houses the compressor and an indoor unit that is mounted on a wall or ceiling in the room that needs to be heated or cooled. The indoor unit contains a fan and a heat exchanger, which extracts heat from the outside air and transfers it inside during the winter, and does the reverse during the summer to cool the room. Ductless heat pumps are highly efficient and can be up to 30% more efficient than traditional heating and cooling systems, as they don't suffer from the energy loss that can occur in ductwork. They are also relatively easy to install, as they don't require ductwork to be installed, making them a good option for homes without existing ductwork or for retrofitting older homes. Ductless heat pumps are also known for their quiet operation, as the indoor unit is typically much quieter than traditional heating and cooling systems. They can also provide zoned heating and cooling, allowing you to control the temperature in different rooms independently, providing greater flexibility and energy savings.
