Geothermal HVAC systems have gained popularity in recent years. One reason is because they’re so reliable. However, there are times when even the most reliable systems develop issues and need professional repair. If you start noticing any of the following signs from your geothermal system, ask an HVAC professional in Elberton, GA, to inspect it:
Loss of Power
As is the case with any type of HVAC system, a sudden loss of power is a surefire sign that something is wrong. Generally speaking, if you experience a power loss in your geothermal system, it probably stems from a problem somewhere in the loop or the interior cabinet. When the system suffers a loss of power, it may continue to operate. But it’ll have to work much harder to achieve the temperature you set on the thermostat.
Wet Spots in the Yard
Typically, coils don’t leak until they have been in use for around 50 years. However, there’s always the off chance that something may be wrong with a particular coil. It’s a good idea to frequently walk to the area of the yard where your coils are to see if you notice any wet spots that could indicate a leak.
Spiking Utility Bills
Aside from their reliability, energy efficiency is one of the things that people love most about their geothermal HVAC systems. Since they rely on the natural temperature of the Earth’s soil, they are among the most energy-efficient HVAC options on the market. Have you noticed a sudden spike in your utility bills when your system is in use? You may need to schedule a service appointment.
