Ground Source Heat Pump
Geothermal heat pumps, also known as ground-source heat pumps​ , use the temperature of the earth to heat or cool a home. They can be more efficient than an air source heat pump​ because the ground maintains an almost constant temperature of about 54 degrees. Typical geothermal heat pumps move fluid through buried pipes, absorbing the earth's temperature. The fluid is then used in the heat pump heat or cool your home.

Federal, local, or utility programs may offer incentives​  for installing certain energy-efficient devices in your home.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
