Putting pipe below the surface isn’t the only choice if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in North America. Ponds and lakes are fantastic possibilities in regard to heating and cooling your home.
These systems are closed-loop, like the options we install, but we place them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like underground, pond and lake temperatures are extremely even at the bottom.
How Large Does My Pond or Lake Need to Be?
For a regular home, you’ll need a 1/2- to ¾-acre body of water that’s at least 8 feet deep.
A pond or lake system can be less expensive than common two-earth loop types. As with most heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your individual settings, proper design, as well as the size and depth of your body of water.
Our skilled team at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can determine if your pond is a fit for a geothermal system. We’ll provide you with a complimentary quote once we’ve taken a look—and we’ll create a design just for your home.
