Geothermal System Replacement
If you have a geothermal heating and cooling system in your home, you probably already know how impressive this technology can be. Geothermal heat pumps are dependable, energy efficient and provide consistent year-round home temperature control. They also last much longer than most conventional heating and cooling systems, but even the best geothermal heat pumps will eventually need replacement.
It’s probably not something you’re looking forward to, but when the time comes it’s better to take care of the problem immediately than to wait until your system completely breaks down. The sooner you act, the less your life will be disrupted by the replacement process and the sooner you can enjoy the benefits of your geothermal system again.
If you think your geothermal heat pump needs to be replaced, the best choice in the greater Wilmington and Dover, DE area is Boulden’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning. We have a great deal of experience working with geothermal systems and we’ll have your old system out of there and the new one in place before you know it. When it comes to replacing geothermal heat pumps, proper installation is extremely important and we know how to get the job done right.
Before you can call us, though, you need to know that there is a problem with your geothermal system. Because you use your heat pump all year long for heating and cooling, it’s likely you will notice a problem as soon as it occurs. For instance, you may suddenly realize that certain areas of your home are warmer or cooler than others. This kind of uneven heating is often a sign of that there is a problem with the heat pump, though it can also be a sign of issues in your ductwork. Only a careful inspection will uncover what the problem truly is.
Another warning sign to watch for is an overall drop in the effectiveness of your geothermal system. If you’re suddenly chilly inside during the winter or uncomfortably warm in the summer, something may have gone wrong with your geothermal heat pump. It may not be that you need a replacement immediately, but you should have a professional come out and take a look right away.
A replacement may be necessary, though, if you find yourself calling for repairs on a regular basis. This may signify that your system is on its last legs. Do you really want to continue dumping money into it when you could invest that same money in the replacement system you’ll need eventually anyway?
