With ground source heat pumps, you can use either underground heat or water sources. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. Air source heat pumps tend to use up more energy than ground source pumps. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. Therefore, air source heat pumps will need more energy to generate sufficient heat. Air source heat pumps entail a smaller upfront cost and will still provide a good return on your investment. However, they tend to lose efficiency during the cold months. However, air source heat pumps are quite easy to install, almost like putting up an air conditioner.
