Types of Heat Pumps
There are many different types of heat pumps, and depending on the framework of your home, you may have multiple options to choose from. For example, a traditional heat pump transfers heat between its indoor and outdoor unit to heat your home, taking advantage of Maryland’s moderate climate to save you money on your monthly energy bills. A geothermal heat pump (AKA ground-source heat pump) uses the ground outside your home to transfer warm and cool air to maintain comfortable temperatures all year long. Below, we’ve provided more information on each of these types of systems:
Air-Source Heat Pumps
Air-source pumps are the standard for heat pump systems. They operate by harnessing ambient heat from the outdoors in order to reduce the amount of energy the system needs to consume in order to heat and cool homes. The result is a highly efficient, reliable system that can meet your comfort needs all year long.
Ground-Source “Geothermal” Heat Pumps
Geothermal heat pumps have been in frequent use for decades. These systems are the absolute most efficient on the market, often hitting efficiency ratings that dwarf other system types. GHPs utilize the constant temperature located deep under your home in order to heat and cool, removing most of the necessity for electricity and reducing energy costs drastically.

Will a Heat Pump Work in Maryland During the Winter?
Heat pump systems are generally ideal for the temperate climates we see here in Maryland. On unusually cold days, it’s possible that there won’t be enough warmth for a heat pump to work effectively, in which case the emergency heat would turn on. However, the emergency heat can be costly, so we recommend using a hybrid heating system. This system consists of a gas furnace and a heat pump, which work together to provide the most energy and cost-effective solution. Keep reading to learn more about the advantages of installing a heat pump in your Maryland home.
Is a Heat Pump the Right Choice in Maryland?
Each and every HVAC option provides unique advantages and disadvantages, so it is ideal to speak with a professional about what works best for your preferences and needs. That said, heat pumps (both air-source and geothermal) work exceptionally well in Maryland! Our extremes aren’t extreme enough to impact the performance of the system, and heat pumps are very energy-efficient and cost-effective to operate.
Some of the most noteworthy advantages of a heat pump include:
- Reduced heating and cooling costs
- A longer operational lifespan when appropriately maintained
- A heating and cooling solution in one system
- Even heating and cooling, minimizing cold or warm spots
Why Choose a Heat Pump?
There are several benefits that heat pumps can offer, including:
- Durability: Heat pumps have a long lifespan and are made to last.
- Cost: Heat pumps generally cost less money to run than other heating systems.
- Efficiency: Heat pumps offer one of the most energy efficient heating and cooling solutions.
How do Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pumps use small amounts of energy to move heat from one location to another. Typically, heat pumps pull heat out of the air or ground in order to heat a home or building. Heat pumps can also be used in reverse to provide cool air.
Heat pumps are great dehumidifiers and can work better than a standard air conditioner at dehumidifying your home. During the winter, they won’t dry out your air like some heating systems do.
