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

You did a lot of thinking, maybe even called us at Southern Solar Systems, found the perfect geothermal system for your Tennessee Valley house, had the reliable people at Southern Solar Systems install your new [[heating and cooling|geothermal107] unit, and now that you have had it for a year or so, it’s time for fall maintenance. (We all know [[targetlocation winters can be tough.)

Proper maintenance before considerable use, such as winter in Tennessee Valley, is the key to getting the best from your geothermal system. The most effortless place to start are air filters. Like all air filters, your geothermal air filters can take a hit from the dirt, grit, grime, and impurities in your air. Proper cleaning or replacement of old filters will keep your compressor operating well and reduce the buildup of unwanted dirt. While we agree, D-I-Y is a good way to save [[time and money|time|money]4 maintenance on your WaterFurnace system is best left to the pros.
