Putting pipe below the surface isn’t the only solution if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Columbus. Ponds and lakes are fantastic possibilities when it comes to heating and cooling your home.
This equipment is closed-loop, like the options we install, but we put them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like subterranean levels, pond and lake temperatures are very consistent 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 geothermal 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 situation, appropriate design, as well as the size and depth of your lake.
Our Expert team at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can confirm 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 create a design just for your home.
