A heat pump extracts heat from the air or ground around your Bowie, MD, home and brings it in so that the air heats up your indoor space. During warmer months, a heat pump removes heat from within your house and transfers the hot air outdoors.
While both a heat pump and air conditioner can cool a home (and work the same in that aspect), an air conditioner doesn’t have any heating abilities. Thanks to a reversing valve in the outdoor unit, a heat pump can absorb heat from cool to extremely cold temperatures and transfer that hot air in, heating up your home.
Though a heat pump may seem like a convenient option, when temperatures drop below freezing, a heat pump will need supplemental heat from an auxiliary electric heater, which can hinder energy efficiency during the winter months. Consider this when thinking about choosing your heating equipment or switching from a dual unit to a heat pump.
When deciding between a heat pump and furnace, consider winter temperatures and square footage in your Bowie, MD, home. If you have limited space, a heat pump could be best to regulate the temperature efficiently. If you live in an area where winter temperatures regularly fall below freezing and you want to avoid spending money on high electric bills, you should call us to explore furnace and other heating options.
Check your thermostat settings to ensure that they are set to your heating or cooling preferences. Make sure that the selection is on ‘cool’ if looking for air conditioning and heat if you’re trying to warm up your home.
If you haven’t changed your air filter recently, there could be debris and dirt keeping your heat pump from working to its full potential. Replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one could save you a more serious HVAC repair.
Here in Bowie and in many other local areas, the power is usually connected to a circuit breaker or a regular wall switch near the unit. The wall switch is easy to mistake for a light switch because codes typically require them to be placed near a garage or closet.
Note: If your heat pump runs off of a circuit breaker and continues to trip, call us as you likely have a serious issue that will require a repair service call.
If you see ice, turn off your heat pump and check the filters and supply vents for any obstructions that will need repaired. If you find no issues, leave the unit off and contact us for professional help. There could be low airflow across the evaporator or a refrigerant leak that will require a repair.

Good service and gave a great deal on a new Trane Heat Pump system when compared to others. Job well done!!
We had Grove install a heat pump with oil back-up 2 years ago and were so pleased with the professionalism and support we received that when we needed a multi-zoned split unit for an addition Grove again was called. They completed the job with the same professionalism exhibited previously.
Just moved out of the area after having a maintenance contract with Grove for 7 years (started when they installed a new HVAC system in 2012). I could not be more pleased with the service and responsiveness I have received over the years from every technician I met.
