Are you aware that and over 1 million homes and our country uses geothermal heating and cooling systems and many of them are right here in the Reno Nevada area. The United States Environmental Protection Agency says that geothermal heating and cooling systems are the cleanest, most energy efficient solutions for home comfort.
