Heat Pump Installation and Repair in Maryland


A heat pump is a single unit that looks like an air conditioner from the exterior, but in fact performs the same functions as a heating and air conditioning system. This type of system works by pumping heat into the house in the wintertime and out of the house during the summer months. Because of its ability to both heat and cool your home, a heat pump can be an economical and efficient option for Maryland homeowners. If gas is unavailable or if electricity is the most reasonable energy option, a heat pump may be the best system for your home.

How It Works: Heat Pumps

Flash 10 demo

A heat pump provides both heating and cooling for a home and may appear as a split system or a self-contained unit. While in cooling mode, the heat pump system will use the outdoor compressor and an evaporator coil to cool a home. When cooling, the compressor pumps refrigerant through the system and to the evaporator coil. As the air duct system pulls warm air from inside the house, the refrigerant in the evaporator coil absorbs the heat and removes the moisture from the air. As the air continues to move across the coil, the air is cooled and is then redistributed through the air duct system. The heat that was transferred to the evaporator coil is moved outside to the compressor, where the heat can dissipate and cool down. While in heating mode, the process is essentially reversed, whereupon cool air is pulled from inside and moved outside to be heated. Often a heat pump will have a backup heating element to supplement during extreme cold periods.

A packaged heat pump system is an alternative to the typical split system approach. However, the process is very similar, except that the system is self-contained and requires no indoor equipment.
