Are you considering upgrading your HVAC system in Dunlap, TN? If so, geothermal HVAC systems will help you save on energy while reducing pollution in your home. Read on to learn several troubleshooting tips for your geothermal HVAC system.
Faulty Heat Pump
The geothermal system depends on the heat pump to move the heat and water through the ground loop. However, with a faulty heat pump, it would be hard to circulate any heat throughout the system.
Your geothermal heat pump consists of some electrical components, a compressor, and a condenser. Fixing any issues with these components requires adequate HVAC skills to help you diagnose any issues with your heat pump. Some heat pump problems are easy to manage, but some might require you to replace the entire pump system.
Typically, geothermal HVAC systems utilize water to function efficiently, which means any leak could lead to a major system issue. Leak issues usually start slow and develop with time. If not taken care of, geothermal leaks could lead to severe problems to both the system and your home.
Once you notice any leak from your geothermal system be sure to contact a professional right away. They will perform an inspection of your entire system components (both above and underground) to find all the leaking spots. They will help you fix them by replacing all the corroded hardware and leaking gaskets in case of any leaks.
Most geothermal water leaks result from leaky underground pipes, which could cause wet spots within your home. For best results, be sure to hire a professional to help you manage your system’s leakages.
This is another common issue with geothermal systems, especially on the heat coils, an essential component of your system. If not taken care of, corrosion could lead to inadequate heat exchange, hence reducing the system’s efficiency. Be sure to contact our technician to help you upgrade your system’s heat exchange system once you notice any corrosion.
