What Is a Heat Pump?
A dual-purpose heating and cooling system, heat pumps move hot air in and out of your home, heating it in the winter and keeping it cool in the summer. These hybrid systems are an energy-efficient option for your home’s HVAC needs. Whether it’s a hot, humid summer day or a frosty winter evening, a heat pump provides many benefits that can keep your family with the ultimate level of comfort. Because they run on electricity, heat pumps are a great option for homes with no lines for natural gas.
How Does a Heat Pump Work?
Just as the name would lead you to believe, heat pumps work by moving (pumping) air from one place to another. Even when it feels cold, heat pumps are smart enough to capture the heat energy in the air and transfer it indoors. On the other hand, when it’s hot outside the home, the heat pump works in reverse, transporting the hot air from inside your home and pushing it outdoors. Because heat pumps move heat instead of generating it, it can be a very energy-efficient option for your heating and air conditioning needs.

How Is a Heat Pump Different from a Furnace?
Instead of generating heat like a furnace does, a heat pump keeps your home comfortable by working to transport existing heat in and out of your home. A major difference between furnaces and heat pumps is how they are powered. Furnaces can be powered by either oil, natural gas, or electricity. However, heat pumps only run on electricity. Although furnaces can be used to heat a home in most areas of the country, heat pumps work best in areas that have fairly moderate climates. Although it does get cold here in Maryland, your heat pump is ready for the task!

Benefits of Installing a Heat Pump in Your Baltimore Home
- Year-round system. Because heat pumps handle your home’s heating AND cooling needs, they offer a year-round solution
- Quiet. One of the quietest options for home heating and air conditioning systems, heat pumps can help maintain a comfortable temperature in your home without being loud or distracting for your family.
- Efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, today’s heat pump models can reduce your electricity use for heating by approximately 50% compared to furnaces. This means less money on your monthly utility bill!
- Safety. Because heat pumps run on electricity instead of oil or gas, they are less likely to cause a fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. However, they do come with their own risks, so you should schedule regular maintenance from a trained professional to ensure the work is done right the first time.
