Common Repair Issues with Geothermal Systems

Geothermal systems use the constant temperature of the earth to heat and cool your home for you. Once you get down below six feet or so, the earth’s temperature is unaffected by the weather outside. Tubes can be run on that level, pumping a mixture of water and antifreeze through that facilitate a heat exchange with the surrounding ground. The result is cheap and efficient heating and air conditioning for use in your home. Geothermal systems in Madisonville TX make a good fit, both because of our fluctuating climate and for the propensity of large property space that the technology needs. But like anything else, common repair issues with geothermal systems can crop up from time to time. When they do, you need to know how to combat them.

The good news is that in most cases, the issues stem from the pump and other above-ground systems designed to process and distribute the energy pulled from the earth. Such issues can include anything from the fan or fan motor to a blocked line interfering with the process. Such issues are often be very similar to those experienced by more traditional heating and cooling systems, which means a qualified technician can usually correct it simply by making a service call.

A bigger problem occurs when the tubes themselves spring a leak or suffer from similar problem. A problem like that can disrupt the entire heating process. More importantly, it requires a significant undertaking to correct, since the technician must first unearth the faulty component, and then bury it again once the problem is corrected.
