Geothermal HVAC systems come with unmatched durability and energy efficiency. Once in a while, your geothermal HVAC system might develop internal problems that require professional maintenance or repairs. Here are common indicators that the geothermal HVAC system in your Culloden, WV, home requires immediate repair:
Firstly, most geothermal systems have an almost silent operation. Normal sounds only occur as the compressor begins running. Weird noises from the geothermal system are not a good sign. Therefore, you should have them inspected right away.
Loud rattling and clanging noises arise from mechanical issues with the fan motor. Also, grinding noises indicate the need for lubrication of the geothermal components. Addressing loud noises helps to avert severe geothermal issues.
Less Cooling Power
Reduced air conditioning capability is another indicator that your system requires expert HVAC repair services. Power loss reduces the effectiveness of the geothermal HVAC system to eliminate indoor heat and provide cool temperatures.
Clogged filters cause the geothermal system to use more force to take away the warm air. Ice buildup in the cabinets also affects geothermal efficiency. Make sure to alert an HVAC specialist if you notice a sizable decline in your system’s cooling power. By doing so as soon as possible, you’ll prevent costlier problems.
High Energy Bills
Geothermal systems have incredible energy-saving features. An unforeseen spike in electricity expenses means your system is suddenly drawing high energy amounts.
If you’re struggling with skyrocketing electricity bills, contact an HVAC expert to maintain and inspect your system. High bills could also be due to coil malfunction and dust collection within the geothermal parts.
Finally, wet spots along your lawn indicate possible leaks within the geothermal loops. Leaks are particularly prevalent for older loops approaching their peak service life. If your geothermal loop system is almost 50 years old, installing new loops will prevent potential water leaks.
