Geothermal, also known as ground or water source, heat pumps do the same thing as what the air source heat pump does except a geothermal heat pump will use the ground or a nearby water source instead of using air. Although, geothermal heat pumps typically cost more to install, they’re more sturdy and reliable during more extreme conditions, and they will also reduce energy usage up to 60%. There is also such a thing as a dual-source heat pumps, which is a combination of an air source heat pump and a geothermal heat pump. The main disadvantage to the dual-source is that they are not as efficient as a geothermal heat pump itself, but they are more efficient than an air source heat pump by itself. If you’re wanting a geothermal heat pump, but cost is an issue then the dual source is a good option seeing as it costs much less to have installed than a geothermal heat pump. Now, there are four (4) different types of geothermal heat pumps:
