A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work

Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. So, they are much more efficient and can save more money. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is because the temperature in the ground is greater than the temperature in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps cost more to operate. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground.
