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 when it comes to heating and cooling your home.
These products are closed-loop, like the models we install, but we put them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like underground, pond and lake temperatures are very even at the bottom.
How Large Does My Pond or Lake Need to Be?
For the average 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 costly than common two-earth loop models. 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 no-cost quote once we’ve taken a look—and we’ll create a design just for your home.
