Putting pipe below the surface isn’t the only solution if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in Dayton. Ponds and lakes are ideal options in regard to heating and cooling your home.
This equipment is closed-loop, like the options we install, but we station 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 a standard 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 options. As with many heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your specific circumstances, proper design, as well as the size and depth of your lake.
Our skilled team at Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can confirm if your pond is suitable for a geothermal system. We’ll provide you with a no-cost quote once we’ve inspected your pond—and we’ll create a design just for your home.
