3 Helpful Tips For Proper Geothermal Maintenance


Properly maintaining your geothermal unit is important for it to work efficiently!

One of the main benefits of having a geothermal heating and cooling system is that it is eco-friendly. However, did you know that geothermal units are not just environmentally friendly, but also super low-maintenance? In fact, since the majority of the geothermal units features are buried underground, homeowners are left with not much to maintain. After all, what you can’t see you just can’t care for. As a result, it may seem like geothermal systems are virtually maintenance free. But that is simply a misnomer. The reality is, there is still some maintenance involved when it comes to keeping your geothermal unit in tip-top shape. Here are just a few things that every single geothermal homeowner should do regarding proper maintenance of the geothermal system itself.

Proper Installation Is Key

A critical component of a properly working geothermal system is a proper installation. In fact, while installation isn’t necessarily a maintenance issue, it is something that should never be overlooked when it comes to geothermal units. A key factor in a properly working geothermal system is having the unit be the correct size to heat and cool your home without any excess wear and tear. As a result, having proper installation is integral to the efficiency of your geothermal heating and cooling system.

Filter Cleaning Or Replacement

One of the most important aspects of proper geothermal maintenance is ensuring that the filter is clean. In fact, a dirty filter can cause substantial harm to occupants and systems alike. As a result, just like with a traditional HVAC, keeping your geothermal units filters clean is necessary if you want to reap the immense rewards that come from a geothermal unit!

Take Time To Clean Moveable Indoor Parts

Although many of the critical aspects of a geothermal system are outside or underground, the components that are inside can be just an integral to the entire system efficacy. In fact, depending on where the main utility room is in your home, dirt and debris are likely to accumulate. As a result, being proactive towards cleaning off these essential components can do wonders for having your geothermal system work efficiently and seamlessly.
