Geothermal heating systems transfer the earth’s own heat into buildings via electric heat pumps. The overall efficiency of a geothermal heating system is about four times better than a conventional furnace that burns fossil fuels. Wider installation of geothermal heating systems could cut the use of petroleum-fired heating systems and electricity substantially, and thus could
