Maintaining Your Geothermal Heating and Cooling System in Meridian

One of the beauties of heating and cooling your Meridian home with a WaterFurnace geothermal system is the minimal maintenance it requires. The system’s relative simplicity is reason enough that. Nevertheless, minimal maintenance shouldn’t be taken to suggest no maintenance. Keeping your system running smoothly and efficiently does entail regularly 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. Beyond that, yearly maintenance service should be provided by the registered, qualified geothermal energy engineers at Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning Co.. These twin efforts – yours and ours – can make certain that your compressors and circulation pumps endure for a solid 35 to 50 years, the calculated life of your WaterFurnace geothermal system.

Be sure to consult your WaterFurnace Operation and Maintenance (O&M) manual for proper maintenance procedures. It’s enough to note here that investigating fluid levels on the whole occasions checking on the amount of refrigerant needed to operate the geothermal heat pump.

There are,to be precise, two filters in the air handling unit that have to be changed periodically: one in the discharge ducting, the other in the air return system. Both filters help get rid of airborne particles picked up from all over your home; particles such as dust, fluff, dust mites, insects, and smoke residue. Generally, HEPA filters are used, but there are other sorts of decent filters that can be good for allergy sufferers.

Most geothermal system air filters are disposable. Switch them out them every three months. Permanent filters, which are cleanable 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 don rubber gloves, eye protection, and a face mask that fits over your mouth and nose. It’s even more vital, however, that you isolate the system from all power sources beforehand!
