Maryland Heat Pump Service

Providing Reliable Heat Pump Installation, Replacement, Maintenance & Repair for Maryland Homeowners

A heat pump unit is the perfect HVAC system for homeowners in the Maryland area. They offer an all-in-one system for your heating and cooling rather than having both a furnace and air conditioner.

At Grove we offer the following services for heat pumps:

If you have limited space and are looking for an HVAC system that is environmentally friendly, energy-efficient, and saves space in your Maryland home, call Grove Heating and Cooling.

We offer traditional, geothermal, and ductless systems, and we base our recommendations on the size of the house and the needs of the homeowner. Our NATE certified HVAC technicians have the knowledge and experience to assist you in deciding the right fit for you.

How a Heat Pump Works

A heat pump extracts heat from the air or ground around your home and moves it into your home to heat it. During warmer months, a heat pump removes heat from within your house and transfers it outdoors.

Heat Pumps Vs. Air Conditioners & Furnaces – Which is Best?

While both a heat pump and air conditioner can cool a home (and work the same in that aspect), an air conditioner cannot heat a home. Thanks to a reversing valve in the outdoor unit, a heat pump can absorb heat from cool to extremely cold temperatures and transfer that heat inside the home. 

Though a heat pump may seem like a convenient option, when temperatures drop below freezing, a heat pump will add supplemental heat from an auxiliary electric heater, which can hinder energy efficiency during the winter months. Consider this when thinking about 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 home. If you have limited space, a heat pump could be for you. If you live in an area where winter temperatures regularly fall below freezing and you want to avoid high electric bills, you should explore furnace options.

Before You Call for Heat Pump Service, Check This

Check Your Thermostat

Check your thermostat settings to ensure that they are set to your preferences. Make sure that the selection is on cool if looking for the AC feature, and heat if you’re trying to warm up and that the degree option reflects for each.

Clean Your Air Filters

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.

Check the Power Source

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 a professional as you likely have a serious issue that will require a service call.

Check for Frost on the Unit

If you see ice, turn off your heat pump and check the filters and supply vents for any obstructions. If you find no issues, leave the unit off and call a professional. There could be low airflow across the evaporator or a refrigerant leak.

How to Take Care of Your Heat Pump

Easy Maintenance for Heat Pumps You Can DIY

  1. Set your thermostat for optimal efficiency.
  2. Use a water hose to clear any debris and dirt from the sides and base of your heat pump.
  3. Keep air registers open.
  4. Clean your filters regularly.
  5. Make a habit of checking for excessive ice or snow build-up during the winter months.
  6. If ice or snow are covering your unit, remove it with warm or cold water. Do not use hot water.

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.
