(We all know [[targetlocation winters can be hard.)

Routine maintenance before considerable use, such as winter in Lafayette, is the key to getting the best out of your geothermal home investment. The easiest place to start 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. Annual cleaning or disposal of old filters will keep your compressor running great and minimize the buildup of udesirable particulates.
