Geothermal Heat Pump Repair in Murfreesboro & Smyrna, TN
Heat pumps are forced-air home comfort systems that can provide both heating and cooling for your Smyrna home. While geothermal heat pumps can be great comfort systems for Middle Tennessee homeowners, they can act up and break down. And when they do, you can turn to Parker’s Heating & Cooling for fast, reliable repair service!
How Geothermal Heat Pumps Work
Geothermal heat pumps absorb heat from below the ground’s surface (in winter) and expel excess heat from your home’s air to the ground (in summer). Alternatively, these systems can absorb/expel heat to/from a water source, like a pond on your property.
The indoor pump unit is connected to loops (hoses or flexible pipes) buried below ground under your lawn or placed under the water’s surface. A mixture of water and antifreeze typically runs through the loops for the heat exchange process.
These energy-efficient geothermal heating and cooling systems are an excellent option for our climate here in Middle Tennessee. Geothermal heat pumps are also an eco-friendly “green energy” option. At Parker’s Heating & Cooling, we install, repair, maintain, and replace geothermal heat pump systems.

Common Types of Geothermal Heat Pump Repairs
At Parker’s, we perform all types of repairs for geothermal heat pumps, including fixing problems like:
- Faulty thermostats or restricted airflow: This can cause poor heating and/or cooling.
- Excessive airflow: This can increase humidity levels in your home.
- Loose fan belts or faulty motors: These can be the source of unusual noises.
- Startup issues: If power is running to the system and it’s not starting up, call on Parker’s for expert heat pump troubleshooting.
- Leaks or wet spots on your lawn: The buried geothermal loops may be leaking outdoors, which generally only occurs when they are very old (50+ years). We can diagnose the cause of any heat pump leakage, in or out of the home.
- Frozen indoor coils: Several problems can cause a freeze up.
- Soaring utility bills: This can mean that your system is using more energy. Commonly, the reason is worn down or broken heat pump components.
How To Avoid the Need for Geothermal Heat Pump Repair in Your Smyrna Home
Keep your heat pump in top shape by scheduling annual geothermal heat pump maintenance service. Geothermal heat pumps can perform well for many years without requiring repair, but regular inspections are essential for these complex systems.
