Geothermal Heat Pump Cost:
There are three main parts to geothermal heat pump cost:
- The energy supply system
- The heat pump
- The energy distribution system
The cost of the heat pump and energy distribution system is the same as most conventional heating and cooling systems. The difference comes in with the energy supply system, a.k.a. the ground loop. The complexity and workload that comes with the ground loop system are more than that of other heating and cooling systems.
Geothermal energy supply sources are a lot of work to get into the ground. Depending on the installation method, you may have to dig up to 600ft underground! Not to mention, there are materials and the installation to put those materials into the ground. It depends on your energy supply source and what kind of home you have.
