Air-Source Heat Pumps
Typically the most common heat pump to install, air-to-air heat pumps absorb heat directly from the outside air and move it inside to heat your home. Air-source heat pumps can be installed into ductless or ducted systems and are more fuel-efficient than a furnace, as they lack any combustible components by using electricity to power them.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
Ground-source heat pump installations require natural heat from the earth to warm or cool your home. Piping is laid under your home that is then filled with water, which is circulated by the heat pump. The water is then heated in the winter (or cooled in the summer) by the earth under your home, which stays at 50 degrees year-round. The warmed or cooled water is circulated to the surface of your heat pump, which in turn heats the air and is blown into your home.
Water-Source Heat Pumps
Water-to-air systems require access to a well, or other body of water nearby, in order to work. They function similarly to air-source heat pumps, with the exception that it uses a pipe system surrounded by water to extract and dissipate heat rather than through the air.
