Maintaining Your Geothermal Heating and Cooling System in Olive Branch

One of the greatest things about heating and cooling your Olive Branch home with a geothermal system is the minimal maintenance necessary. The system’s relative simplicity explains that. Still, minimal maintenance shouldn’t be taken to mean no maintenance. Keeping your system’s performance trouble-free and efficient necessitates periodically checking the heat pump’s fluid levels and temperatures as well as changing filters in both the air handling unit and the geothermal ground-loop system. In addition to that, yearly maintenance service should be provided by the registered, qualified geothermal energy engineers at Air & Heat Service Co.. These binary efforts – yours and ours – can help guarantee that your compressors and circulation pumps hold up for a solid 35 to 50 years, the reckoned life of your geothermal system.

Be sure to consult your owner's manual for details on the proper maintenance procedures. Suffice it to say here that inspecting fluid levels principally means checking on the amount of refrigerant required to utilize the geothermal heat pump.

There are,to be accurate, two filters in the air handling unit that have to be changed every now and then: one in the discharge ducting, the other in the air return system. Both filters capture airborne particles sucked in throughout your home; particles such as dust, fluff, dust mites, insects, and smoke residue. Commonly, HEPA filters are used, but there are other kinds of decent filters that can be beneficial for allergy sufferers.

The majority of geothermal system air filters are disposable. Change them every three months. Permanent filters, which you can sanitize with a vacuum-cleaner hose, should be removed from the housing and cleaned every one to three months. Whether cleaning or replacing, it’s crucial that you wear rubber gloves, eye protection, and a face mask that fits over your mouth and nose. It’s even more vital, however, that you unplug the system from all power sources beforehand!
