Geothermal heating and cooling maintenance
Geothermal HVAC systems offer several benefits when compared to conventional AC units. Typically they are long-lasting and lower maintenance costs. While it does require less maintenance, it is still essential to get the system regularly serviced. As with conventional units, your Geothermal Heating unit will show signs when it is time to make a maintenance call. Here are some of the most common symptoms: Improper Heating and Cooling – this could be a sign that the filter may need to be replaced. Higher Energy Bills – as geothermal systems are known to be very energy efficient, you should schedule a maintenance appointment if you notice a noticeably higher than usual electricity bill. Humidity Problems – a failing geothermal system will be unable to dehumidify your home. Rattling Sounds – while your geothermal heating system may emit a slight noise similar in loudness to other appliances, you should schedule maintenance if your system is emitting a loud rattling or grinding sound. As with any heating and cooling system proper maintenance and regular service calls will allow your system to run smoothly for a long time.
