The Solar and geothermal energy have many advantage like low cost, non-toxic, and unlimited. But those the have very low energy efficiency. In this study, the theoretical study of performance in a sola-geothermal hybrid heat pump with operating conditions has carried out. As a result, as the solar radiation increases from 1 $MJ/m^2$ to 20 $MJ/m^2$, the heat pump operating time decreases by 19.5% from 18 times to 14.5 times and the heat pump heat decreases by 23%. Besides, the heating COP increases by 21.4% when the evaporator inlet temperature increases from $11^{\circ}C$ to $19^{\circ}C$. By adapting the geothermal system into a solar hybrid R22 heat pump, the system performance and reliability increases significantly for variable operating conditions during winter season.
