Maintaining Your Geothermal Heating and Cooling System in Mobile

One of the niceties of heating and cooling your Mobile home with a WaterFurnace geothermal system is the minimal maintenance required. The system’s relative simplicity explains that. But minimal maintenance shouldn’t be taken to mean no maintenance. Keeping your system operating smoothly and efficiently necessitates periodically checking the heat pump’s fluid levels and temperatures as well as replacing filters in both the air handling unit and the geothermal ground-loop system. In addition to that, yearly maintenance service should be provided by the registered, qualified geothermal energy engineers at Geothermal Solutions. These dual efforts – yours and ours – can help guarantee that your compressors and circulation pumps last for a good 35 to 50 years, the approximated life of your WaterFurnace geothermal system.

Make sure you consult your WaterFurnace Operation and Maintenance (O&M) manual for correct maintenance procedures. Suffice it to say here that inspecting fluid levels as a rule means checking on the amount of refrigerant needed to use the geothermal heat pump.

There are,to be specific, two filters in the air handling unit that require changing regularly: one in the discharge ducting, the other in the air return system. Both filters capture airborne particles picked up throughout your home; particles like dust, fluff, dust mites, insects, and smoke residue. In general, HEPA filters are installed, but there are other kinds of satisfactory filters that can be of benefit to those afflicted with allergies.

The majority of geothermal system air filters are disposable. Change them every three months. Permanent filters, which you can sanitize with a vacuum-cleaner hose, should be taken out of the housing and cleaned every one to three months. Whether cleaning or replacing, it’s critical that you wear rubber gloves, eye protection, and a face mask that covers your mouth and nose. It’s even more crucial, in any event, that you isolate the system from all power sources beforehand!
