Geothermal System Maintenance
There are many benefits to having a geothermal heating and cooling system installed in your home. These systems are reliable and built to last. They also use much less energy than conventional home heating and cooling systems, and they can maintain a comfortable indoor environment through more extreme cold weather than air source heat pumps.
But if you want your geothermal heat pump to keep working well over the long term, it’s a good idea to have regular maintenance checkups carried out by a professional. Lanz Heating & Cooling regularly performs geothermal maintenance in homes all over the Champaign–Urbana area and we would be glad to add your name to our list of valued customers.

The Importance of Geothermal Maintenance
There are many reasons that keeping up with proper maintenance for your geothermal system is important. Just like any other piece of equipment, your geothermal system runs best if it receives regular tune ups, and that’s exactly what our technicians do when they come out for a routine maintenance visit.
Our maintenance work includes a thorough inspection of your system, both above and below ground. We conduct this inspection using a variety of high tech specialized equipment that allows us to examine every part of your system for problems and then target our work accordingly. Once a thorough inspection has been completed, we take care of cleaning out any debris that may have built up over time and could compromise the efficiency of your system.
When your geothermal system receives this type of treatment, it retains more of its original energy efficiency than it would otherwise. It is also less likely that you’ll need emergency repairs down the line. Keeping up with regular maintenance can even help prolong the life of your geothermal system.
The bottom line is that maintenance checkups save you both money and aggravation in the long run. Your geothermal system probably only needs maintenance once every year or so, and that small investment will be paid back many times over in terms of lower energy bills and an extended life for the entire system.
Geothermal Maintenance You Can Do
Of course, not all of the maintenance that your geothermal system needs must be carried out by a professional. While you aren’t equipped to perform major maintenance tasks on your own, you can do a few little things periodically to help ensure the continued smooth operation for your system. This includes things like changing air filters and cleaning out vents on a regular basis. Your geothermal system technician can show you exactly which tasks should be performed between maintenance visits and the proper way to perform them for optimal results.
