Embedding pipe below the surface isn’t the only choice if you’re considering geothermal energy in Columbus. Ponds and lakes are fantastic options when it comes to heating and cooling your home.
This equipment is closed-loop, like the options we install, but we place them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like below-ground, pond and lake temperatures are extremely consistent 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 pricey than common two-earth loop options. As with most heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your specific circumstances, appropriate design, as well as the size and depth of your pond.
Our Expert team at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can decide if your pond is a fit for a geothermal system. We’ll supply you with a free quote once we’ve inspected your pond—and we’ll make a design just for your home.
