Its almost fall in Boone, time for maintenance on your geothermal equipment.

You did lots of digging, maybe even called us at Scott Brothers Heating & Air, found the best geothermal system for your Boone home, had the credible technicians at Scott Brothers Heating & Air set up your state of the art [[heating and cooling|geothermal107] unit, and now that you have had it for a while, it’s time for autumn maintenance. (We all know [[targetlocation winters can be tough.)

Annual maintenance before heavy use, such as wintertime in Boone, is the key to getting the most from your geothermal home investment. The simplest item to replace are air filters. Like most 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 operating well and prevent the accumulation of udesirable dirt. While we agree, D-I-Y is a good way to save [[time and money|time|money]4 maintenance and repairs on your system is best left to the pros.
