Fermi energy contribute to the field in the inductor

Ok, so here's the basic idea. You have a refrigerator, with four walls each 6ft x 2ft x 4in. The walls are made out of copper(high thermal conductivity), with a silicon chip at the center. This chip is connected to an inductor and is essentially a L-C oscillating circuit. As the chip heats up, electrons pass into the conduction band as per Fermi-Dirac. These pass into the inductor. Once all the electrons with the Fermi energy contribute to the field in the inductor, it collapses and recharges the chip. My question is, what happens to the energy at this point and will this keep thermal energy out of the refrigerator.
I'm familiar with Peltier, but that isn't related to semiconductors. Peltier uses junctions of copper and bismuth, I'm thinking of something that uses silicon or germanium.
Errm, Peltier effect works just fine between two dissimilar semiconductors.
