Is geothermal better than heat pump?

Geothermal and heat pumps are both efficient ways to heat and cool a home. Geothermal systems use the constant temperature of the earth to heat and cool a home, while heat pumps use the air outside to transfer heat. Generally, geothermal systems are more efficient than heat pumps, as they use the earth’s natural temperature to heat and cool a home, which requires less energy than a heat pump. Additionally, geothermal systems are more reliable and require less maintenance than heat pumps. However, geothermal systems are more expensive to install than heat pumps, and may not be suitable for all homes. Ultimately, the decision between geothermal and heat pump systems should be based on the individual needs of the homeowner.
