Here are some common issues with geothermal heating systems.
Problems with Underground Pipes
Leaks in the underground pipes are one common repair need for geothermal heating systems. If the heat is not working correctly, and you notice low water pressure for systems that use the geothermal heat pump as a water heater, you could have a leak. Low hot water pressure could also be cause by mineral buildup inside the pipes. You can install a water treatment system to solve issues with hard water, but a leak will definitely require an emergency service.
Heat Pump Issues
Most heat pump issues can be solved by simply checking the settings or the thermostat. Make sure your heat pump is set on the heating mode and that your thermostat is on the right setting. Consult your owner’s manual if you aren’t sure which settings to use. If the heat pump isn’t turning on at all, make sure there’s not a blown fuse or that the safety valve hasn’t shut off for some reason. Call a repair technician if you still can’t get it to work.
If your geothermal heat pump is not producing heat, try turning up your thermostat. Next make sure your air filters have been changed if you haven’t checked them recently. A clogged air filter can affect the airflow and cause issues with output. Call us if you are still having problems.
