You did your research, you may have even called us at Conan Heating & Air Conditioning, found the exact geothermal system for your Idaho Falls home, had the trusty staff at Conan Heating & Air Conditioning install your new geothermal system, and now that you have been enjoying your system for about a year, it’s time for fall maintenance. (We all know winters can be tough.)
Proper maintenance before heavy use, such as wintertime in Idaho Falls, is the key to getting the most out of your geothermal home investment. The simplest place to start is air filters. Like the majority of air filters, your geothermal air filters can take a beating from the dirt, grit, grime, and impurities in your air. Annual washing or disposal of old filters will keep your compressor operating great and prevent the buildup of undesirable dust. While we agree, D-I-Y is an awesome way to save time and money for maintenance on your WaterFurnace system is best left to the professionals. What should you see when you set up your autumn tune-up with Conan Heating & Air Conditioning? We…
- Replace or top off the coolant in your geothermal system. (If your system requires coolant.)
- Examine the pipes outside if an issue is suspected.
- Lubricate the moving items, such as the fans and pump.
- examine, and if needed, tighten electrical connections.
- If you have an open-loop geothermal system, an acid flush is needed to clean out mineral and debris deposits.
- nd other small checks that may be specific to your WaterFurnace system
