This form of energy is also a renewable form of energy.Geothermal heating and cooling is largely energy efficient because the amount of electricity that is used for operation is quite low. To put it in a better manner the amount of energy output is much higher than the amount of energy input when it comes to geothermal heating and cooling.Geothermal heating and cooling has a quiet operation because most of the unit stays buried inside and the remaining components of the unit are designed using modern technology.As far as the lifespan of geothermal units are considered they have more life than furnaces.
