Putting pipe below the surface isn’t the only choice if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in Dayton. Ponds and lakes are ideal options when it comes 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 extremely stable 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 expensive than common two-earth loop options. As with a lot of heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your distinct circumstances, proper design, as well as the size and depth of your pond.
Our skilled team at Stevenson Service Experts can confirm if your pond is suitable for a geothermal system. We’ll give you a complimentary quote once we’ve inspected your pond—and we’ll create a design just for your home.
