It’s enough to note here that investigating fluid levels on the whole occasions checking on the amount of refrigerant necessary to utilize the geothermal heat pump.

There are in fact two filters in the air handling unit that must be changed every so often: one in the discharge ducting, the other in the air return system. Both filters capture airborne particles collected throughout your home; particles like dust, fluff, dust mites, insects, and smoke residue. Typically, HEPA filters are used, but there are other sorts of reasonable filters that can help those troubled by allergies.

Geothermal system air filters are most often disposable. Change them every three months. Permanent filters, which are cleanable with a vacuum-cleaner hose, should be removed from the housing and cleaned every one to three months.

It’s even more crucial, though, that you unplug the system from all power sources beforehand!
