It’s almost fall in Rochester, time for maintenance on your geothermal equipment.

You did your thinking, maybe even talked us here at Van Hee Mechanical, found the perfect geothermal system for your Rochester house, had the trusty technicians at Van Hee Mechanical set up your state of the art [[heating and cooling|geothermal107] system, and now that you have had it for a year or so, it’s about time for autumn maintenance. (We all know [[targetlocation winters can be strenuous.)

Routine maintenance before considerable use, such as winter in Rochester, is the key to getting the best from your geothermal home investment. The easiest things are air filters. Like the majority of air filters, your geothermal air filters can take a beating from the debris in your air. Routine washing or replacement of old filters will keep your compressor operating great and minimize the buildup of udesirable debris. While we think, D-I-Y is a good way to save [[time and money|time|money]4 maintenance and repairs on your WaterFurnace system is best left to the professionals. What can you expect when you reserve your autumn tune up with Van Hee Mechanical? We...

  • Change or replenish the coolant in your system. (If your system needs coolant.)

  • Lubricate the moving parts, like the fans and pump.
  • Inspect, and if necessary, tighten electrical connections.
  • If you have an open loop geothermal system, an acid flush may be needed to clean out mineral and debris deposits.
  • And other small checks that may be specific to your geothermal system
