Geothermal heat pumps are one of the most efficient ways to heat and cool your home — but only when they’re properly maintained. That’s why we’re happy to offer our customers geothermal heat pump maintenance plans to ensure that your geothermal system gets the regular maintenance it needs. With our help, you can rest assured that your system will be running smoothly all year round.
How Does A Geothermal Heat Pump Work?
The heat pump unit is located inside your home and contains a compressor, condenser, expansion valve, and evaporator coil. These components work together to transfer heat between your home and the earth loop system.
Unlike a traditional furnace, a geothermal heat pump (GHP) has three main components: an underground loop system, a heat pump unit, and a duct system.
The underground loop system consists of a network of pipes that circulate a water-based solution. This solution absorbs heat from the earth in the winter and transfers it into your home.
In the summer, the process is reversed, and the Geothermal system absorbs heat from your home and transfers it back into the earth.
Finally, the duct system distributes conditioned air throughout your home.
Why Do I Need Regular Geothermal System Maintenance?
Like all mechanical systems, GHPs require regular maintenance to function properly. From the refrigerant levels, to filters and regular wear and tear, without proper maintenance, your Geothermal system could break down when you need it most — leaving you without heat in the winter or cool air in the summer.
What’s Included In Geothermal Maintenance?
✔ Check Refrigerant Levels
If the fluid levels of your geothermal system are low, it may be necessary to add more refrigerant. This will ensure proper heat exchange through the HVAC system.
✔ Clean Filters
The air filter in your geothermal heat pump system should be changed or cleaned on a regular basis. Dirty filters can cause a number of problems, including reduced efficiency and increased wear and tear on the system.
