A geothermal system is an energy-efficient heating and cooling option for homeowners. While you’re enjoying energy bills up to 65% lower, you may eventually experience an issue with your geothermal heat pump. Here are some helpful answers to common questions homeowners have when replacing their geothermal system.
What Are the Benefits of a Geothermal Replacement?
As your geothermal heat pump ages, you may experience higher electricity bills or a less efficient system. Replacing the heat pump will improve system efficiency. It can also reduce maintenance issues and provide you with another 30 or more years of efficient heating and cooling for your home.
How Often Do I Need to Replace My Geothermal System?
Just like an electric, propane, or natural gas heating system, your geothermal heat pump will most likely need to be replaced every 20-25 years. Fortunately, geothermal loops are designed to last 50 or more years, so in most cases, the loop is an expense you won’t need to worry about.
How Long Does Geothermal System Replacement Take?
When you choose a leading geothermal system installation team, you’ll enjoy prompt replacement services. The exact timeline depends on the nature of the project. A heat pump replacement, the most common issue with an inefficient or inoperable geothermal system, can be performed in a single day and takes the same amount of time as a typical furnace or heating system repair.
Do I Need to Dig Up My Whole System?
In most cases, you don’t need to dig up the entire system. At RSC Heating & Air Conditioning, our certified technicians carefully inspect your heat pump for signs of damage to determine the exact issue with your geothermal system.
In most cases, a simple heat pump repair or replacement project can solve your issue. If there is a leak or damage to your geothermal loop, our highly trained team minimizes the amount of digging necessary to safely and efficiently restore your system.
