What Type of Maintenance Does a Geothermal System Need?

A geothermal heating and cooling system utilizes a heat pump in conjunction with a buried ground loop system in order to use heat from beneath the ground in order to warm your home. During the summer, heat is withdrawn from the air in your home and is then sunk into the ground via the geothermal loop. As is the case with any other residential heating or cooling system, routine maintenance is necessary if you hope to keep your geothermal heating and cooling system in the finest working condition possible. To schedule geothermal system maintenance in Ajax, ON with a professional you can trust, just call Advantage Airtech today. We offer the exceptional maintenance services that your geothermal system needs to succeed.

While geothermal loops require very little in the way of maintenance, as they are really just a series of tubes through which an antifreeze solution flows, the heat pump itself does require routine maintenance services in order to stay in fine working condition. The level of the antifreeze in your geothermal system will have to be checked in order to ensure that it is able to absorb and dissipate thermal energy effectively. If there is a leak resulting in the loss of antifreeze, it will have to be resolved if you hope to use your geothermal system as effectively as possible. A maintenance technician will check these levels, and will measure the pressure and temperature within the geothermal loop.

It is also necessary that your geothermal heat pump is thoroughly and deeply cleaned if you want it to continue to function properly. When dirt and other debris allowed to build up within your geothermal heat pump, this buildup can seriously inhibit the system in a few different ways. Sensitive components may not be able to move freely, and dirty electrical contacts may not allow for proper operation. Only a trained professional can safely and meticulously clean your system free of debris.

Finally, keep in mind that there is more to your geothermal heating and cooling system than just the components outside. The ductwork that delivers heated and cooled air throughout your home, for instance, must be thoroughly inspected to guarantee that it is in fine working condition and is not compromised. Only when every component of your geothermal system is successfully maintained can you hope for it to function at peak performance levels.
