Common Problems with Geothermal Cooling Systems
Like conventional air conditioning systems, geothermal cooling systems encounter occasional problems that require troubleshooting. Potential problems can include a leak in the loop, disconnected or broken wiring, low refrigerant, a defective valve and more. One of the most telltale signs you may have a problem with your geothermal cooling system is if your system starts to cool zones of your home unevenly or if there’s unusually loud noises when you operate your system. If ignored these common problems can become very costly to repair and even lead to a system replacement. Most troubleshooting and repairs for a geothermal cooling system should be performed by a qualified HVAC professional. However, there are a few things you can do yourself before calling for AC repair service.
Before calling an AC Repair Company, check for the following:
- Is there power to the heat pump? Do you have a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker?
- Is the air filter clogged? A clogged or dirty air filter can impede the operation of your system.
- Are you doors and windows closed?
- Is the thermostat set to the correct temperature? Is it set to cooling mode?
- Is the thermostat located near the kitchen, in direct sunlight, a door, or another place where it may get a false temperature reading?
