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

You did your thinking, maybe even reached out to us at Atlantic Well Drilling, found the best geothermal system for your Cape Cod home, had the credible employees at Atlantic Well Drilling set up your state of the art [[heating and cooling|geothermal107] system, and now that you have been enjoying your system for a year or so, it’s time for autumn maintenance. (We all know [[targetlocation winters can be strenuous.)

Routine maintenance before considerable use, such as wintertime in Cape Cod, is key to getting the best performance from your WaterFurnace geothermal system. The simplest things are air filters. Like the majority of air filters, your geothermal air filters can take a hit from the dirt, grit, grime, and impurities in your air. Regular washing or disposal of old filters will keep your compressor running great and prevent the accumulation of udesirable particulates. While we agree, D-I-Y is a great way to save [[time and money|time|money]4 maintenance and repairs on your WaterFurnace unit is best left to the professionals. What can you expect when you schedule your fall tune up with Atlantic Well Drilling? We...

  • Change or top off the coolant in your system. (If your system requires coolant.)
  • Inspect the pipes outside if a leak is suspected.
  • Lubricate the moving parts, like the fans and pump.
  • Inspect, and if necessary, tighten electrical connections.
  • If you have an open loop 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
