Other Arctic regions, however, use geothermal heat pumps on a much larger scale. In Sweden, more than 30 percent of homes are heated with geothermal, according to a Cold Climate Housing Research Center (CCHRC) report. About 50 residences across Alaska were using ground-source water pumps as ofCCHRC reports.
