Geothermal heat pumps are highly energy efficient in cooling your home and last for a long time. However, they are sometimes faced with issues that can lower their efficiency in cooling your home. Here are some common geothermal problems in North Charleston, SC.
Dirty Air Filter
If your geothermal is not cooling your home, it may have dirty air filters. Dirty filters lower the efficiency of your HVAC system. They allow in dirt, dust and other biological contaminants that restrict proper airflow in your house.
When dirty filters affect the performance of your geothermal system, it results in high utility bills. They also reduce the service lifespan of your system. Replacing your filters as per the manufacturer’s instructions will improve the efficiency of your system in cooling your home.
Your geothermal has some similar components available in a typical HVAC system. These components can malfunction, making your system less efficient. Some common malfunctions include refrigerant leaks, clogged condensate drains, dead capacitors and a bad blower fan motor.
Blocked Vents and Registers
Closed registers and vents interfere with proper airflow in your home and reduce cooling. Ensure that all your vents and supply registers are open and not blocked by furniture.
Your geothermal system may fail to cool your home if you have a broken fan belt. If your home is not cooling enough, our qualified service technicians can help troubleshoot and fix any problems.
Your house may not cool enough if the thermostat is malfunctioning. Wrong thermostat reading and a faulty sensor can result in reduced cooling or your system will not turn on. Our professional technicians will help you determine the problem or whether you need to replace your thermostat.
