Frequently Asked Questions About Geothermal Systems
How do geothermal heat pumps work?
Geothermal heat pumps extract heat from underground loops buried deep beneath the ground. As water circulates through these, it absorbs heat that is then pumped into the home.
How common are leaks?
Gasket leaks are always a possibility with geothermal heat pumps. As such, repairing or replacing gaskets is one of the most common issues you will have with your system. Fortunately, this is almost always a simple task to perform.
What happens when the pump stops working?
When the pump fails, it will not move water through the underground loop, meaning it will not carry the required heat through the water and into your home.
Are there maintenance tasks I can perform?
Absolutely! It is perfectly safe (and advisable) to regularly change the air filter, clean the condensate drain, and check the system for signs of damage.
