Maryland Geothermal Service Repairs

Geothermal systems are tough and long-lasting.  However, geothermal service repairs are inevitable.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) estimates the underground loop will last 50 years or more, and the indoor heat pump system and its components will last up to 24 years.

Geothermal outperforms conventional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment in reliability, energy efficiency, and service life.

Although geothermal equipment likely will outlast any other system or appliance in your Baltimore, MD, home, that does not mean they are indestructible. These systems typically operate year after year without a hitch and rarely, if ever, needing geothermal service repair.

You can count on Ground Loop Heating and Air Conditioning to quickly assess and determine the best course of action, whether repair or replacement. We know geothermal systems inside and out, from the intricacies of sizing and installing your system to repair and maintenance.

We are adept at reading symptoms and resolving issues with the best solution.

Does the Underground Loop Break Down?

Typically, you do not have to worry about the loop portion of your system breaking down or wearing out within the first 50 years or more.

However, you may damage the geothermal loop if you indiscriminately dig deep in your backyard when installing posts, a pool, or a sprinkler system. You must be mindful of the loop area and refrain from excavating there.

If you inadvertently damage the underground piping, our Ground Loop Heating and Air Conditioning experts can restore your system and ensure the loop is sound.

Geothermal Service Repairs in Baltimore, MD

Your geothermal system may struggle to achieve the indoor temperature you want if the pressure in the loop falls below the recommended range. Think about what happens when your water pressure at home is too low. It causes weak water flow from faucets and showerheads.

When the pressure in your geothermal loop is low, the water inside does not efficiently move heat to and from your home. It is weak, like the trickle from a faucet with insufficient water pressure.

Low water pressure is easy to remedy. We can restore the correct pressure without digging up your yard.

Heat Pump Repairs

We stand behind WaterFurnace geothermal systems because of their reliability, top-notch performance, and durability. However, geothermal heat pumps can occasionally experience problems, like any other HVAC equipment.

WaterFurnace recommends an annual inspection of its geothermal heat pumps because maintenance, including regular air filter changes, can help prevent system issues.

Our technicians at Ground Loop Heating and Air Conditioning are equally adept at providing geothermal service and preventing heat pump problems as they are at diagnosing and repairing issues.

Here are a few of the geothermal service repairs we experience:

  • Malfunctioning blower fans
  • Refrigerant leaks
  • Clogged condensate drains
  • Gasket leaks
  • Electrical glitches
  • Worn parts
