Pond and Lake Applications Burying pipe underground isn’t the only route if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Dayton. While it could seem a little odd that your pond could be helping to heat and cool your home, ponds and lakes are fantastic choices when it comes to capturing geothermal energy. These geothermal loops are closed loop systems like the others we put in, and are merely positioned near the bottom of the pond or lake. Much like the evenness of ground temperatures, pond and lake temperatures are very constant at the bottom. The materials we use for pond and lake applications are also nearly equal, and there are only a handful of differences when it comes to length and configuration. Requirements A 1/2 to 3/4 acre, 8-foot-deep body of water is typically the regular size needed for an average home. Pond and lake geothermal systems might be less costly than the conventional two earth loop options as well. As with a lot of heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops will be decided on your unique situation, proper geothermal loop design, as well as the size of your pond or lake and its depth. The team at Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is trained and has the experience to provide you with an estimate once we have taken a look to figure out if your pond is suitable to house a geothermal system. Once it’s certain that your pond is able to harness geothermal energy, we will carefully design and install a pond system that not only give you geothermal heating and cooling, but may actually provide better performance and could help you save on installation costs.
