How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pumps warm your home by extracting heat energy from the outside air and transferring it inside your home. Even when it’s cold outside, the air still holds heat energy that can be extracted and released inside your home. When it’s warm outside, the heat pump reverses this process and pulls heat energy out of your home and releases it outdoors, cooling your home in the process.
What About Hybrid Systems?
Heat pumps are an energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home, especially if you live in a temperate climate. However, we know that the winters can be harsh in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, which is why we often recommend a hybrid system to our customers.
Hybrid systems combine a heat pump with a furnace. The heat pump works efficiently to keep your home warm during more moderate winter days, and when the air drops below a certain temperature, your furnace will automatically kick in to help out your heat pump and keep your home warm and comfortable no matter the temperature.
