Benefits of Heat Pumps
The versatility of heat pumps and the fact that they don’t need to create heat but rather move it from one place to another, make them an extremely energy-efficient choice for homeowners as opposed to other, more complex heating and cooling systems.
Consider some of these benefits of installing a heat pump in your southern Maryland home:
- Lower costs: Heat pumps are among the most energy-efficient HVAC systems available, resulting in savings of up to 50% on your energy bill.
- Increased safety: Heat pumps don’t operate on a combustion system, meaning they’re much safer than gas- or oil-operated systems.
- Longevity: Heat pumps have an incredible service life, with many heat pumps lasting around 14–15 years with proper care and maintenance.
Heat pumps can also come with the benefit of having programmable controls for Wi-Fi or remote temperature adjustments through connection to your home’s smart devices. This lets you capitalize on energy efficiency, so you’re not paying for excess energy to keep your home comfortable when you’re not there.

Frequently Asked Questions
Common questions we receive about heat pumps include:
How does a heat pump work?
Heat pumps transfer heat from one place to another, making them highly energy-efficient systems. To warm a home, the heat pump pulls heat from the outdoor air or underground and transfers it inside. For cooling a home, this process works in reverse.
Why is my heat pump so loud?
There are various reasons your heat pump is making loud noises. If you hear rattling noises, metal-on-metal, or loud shrieking, you should call for professional repairs. These noises indicate damaged, loose, or misaligned parts or a refrigerant leak.
How often should a heat pump cycle on and off?
The average heat pump cycle is two to three times per hour for 10 to 20 minutes each cycle. The length and frequency also depend on the temperature, humidity levels, and system capacity.
How efficient is a heat pump?
Under the right conditions, heat pumps can transfer up to 300% more energy than consumed and reduce energy use for heating by up to 50%. They’re one of the most energy-efficient heating and cooling systems available.
What are the disadvantages of a heat pump?
Heat pumps can have a higher upfront installation cost, which can be mitigated with long-term savings. Their efficiency can also be reduced in extremely cold climates.
