A geothermal system is a central heating and cooling system that works by transferring heat to or from the ground. It makes use of the earth as a heat sink during the hot summer months, but it is also able to use the earth as a heat source during winter.

However, repair costs will usually range between $300 and $1,800, as these units are specialized and therefore, should only be repaired by qualified persons. One of the most common forms of repair and maintenance that are performed on these systems is the cleaning out of the system’s pipes, as they can become clogged with debris over time. Another common problem on these systems in leaky loops or pipes; however this can usually be repaired at a relatively low cost of between $80 and $120.
