Tune Up Your Geothermal System for a Quality Performance

Of all the ways in which to heat and cool a residence in this day and age, geothermal heat pump systems must be one of the most intriguing. Drawing heat from beneath the ground’s surface, where temperatures tend to remain more or less constant, is an ingenious method of supplying a home heat during the winter season. By removing heat from the air in your home and dumping it into the ground during the cooling season, a geothermal system completes the cycle and allows for year round comfort. The fact of the matter, though, is that you absolutely must schedule professional geothermal system tune-ups in Sand Point if you hope for your system to excel in its operation. Call G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. in order to do so.

A geothermal tune-up, like any other HVAC system maintenance services, must be completed by a trained professional. Such services share a lot in common with more traditional system tune-ups. Electrical components must be checked for proper operation and cleaned as needed. Volts and amps should be measured to ensure that electricity is being used effectively and efficiently. The coil and filters will be checked as well, and a general inspection will be completed. Refrigerant levels will also be measured, with any signs of low refrigerant suggesting a leak somewhere in the system.

The good news is that the geothermal loop that your geothermal system uses in order to facilitate the heat transfer process requires little, if any, routine maintenance. However, it is necessary that the ground loop is re-pressurized if need be. It is possible for closed ground loop systems to lose some pressure over time. This is especially true during its cooling mode. Should your pressure be low in your ground loop, your technician will add water pressure, burp the system, and then re-pressurize it accordingly.

G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. will get the job done right. That way, you can heat and cool your home with your geothermal system in the most effective, efficient, and reliable manner possible.
