The Maryland HVAC contractors at Presidential Heating and Air released a blog explaining the different types of heat pumps that work as part of a home’s heating system. Homeowners can choose different heating installation services to create the best system for their needs.

There are several factors to consider when installing a heating pump. Some work differently than others, with different levels of efficiency and types of benefits. Making the best choice for your home requires research into how each pump operates, and speaking with a licensed HVAC contractor can help give you the best information for your search. Selecting the wrong heat pump could result in unnecessary heating expenses, installation issues, and potential damage to your home’s structure.

There are three main types of heat pumps. Air-source heat pumps are the most common. They include an indoor air handling unit and an outdoor heat pump. These units dehumidify better than standard air conditioning units and can reduce heating costs significantly. These units are best suited for warmer climates. Split-ductless heat pump, which also have indoor and outdoor units, are best suited to single-room additions or homes without ducts. These are energy-efficient uits and take up little space, but they can be a bit more expensive than other styles. Finally, geothermal heat pumps move heat through a series of pipes buried underground. Geothermal pumps can also control humidity, reduce energy use, and are quiet and long lasting, with little maintenance required. The proper unit for your home will depend on the area in which you live, the type of home you have, and in some cases, whether efficiency in heating or in cost takes priority.
