One of the main reasons that so many people in the Maryland and Washington, DC area install heat pumps is that heat pumps don’t burn fuel to create heat. Instead, they operate via heat transfer all year. In the spring and summer, they operate just like a normal air conditioner, using a special refrigerant to remove heat from the indoor air.
In the fall and winter, heat pumps apply the same principles in reverse. The same refrigerant that removes heat from the inside air can also absorb heat from the outside air when the heat pump is in heating mode, meaning that when you install a heat pump it will keep you comfortable all year long.
Almost everyone who wants to install a heat pump has the same question: since heat pumps pull heat out of the outside air, do they work when it gets cold? Yes! Your heat pump will continue to draw heat out of the air until the temperature starts reaching 32 degrees.
In the DC metro area, where temperatures are known to plummet into the teens during our frigid winters, there is a simple solution for dealing with these extremely low temps: back-up heating systems. These back-up heating systems are installed to burn fuel or use electricity only when absolutely necessary, meaning that your system will always use the most efficient heating option available.
