On the other hand, a geothermal system gives you about 5 units of heat for each unit of electricity consumed. It is because a gas furnace uses fossil fuel to generate heat for the purpose which is not required in a geothermal system. It generates its own heat by collecting the heat of the earth underground and moves it to the indoor unit. It is here where it is compressed and increased before distributing it throughout the house giving you the warm and comfortable feeling in a chilly winter.
