Putting pipe below the surface isn’t the only option if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in Raleigh. Ponds and lakes are ideal options in regard to heating and cooling your home.
These systems are closed-loop, like the others we install, but we put them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like subterranean levels, pond and lake temperatures are incredibly stable 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 costly than traditional two-earth loop options. As with many heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your individual situation, proper design, as well as the size and depth of your body of water.
Our skilled team at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can determine if your pond is a match for a geothermal system. We’ll give you a no-cost quote once we’ve inspected your pond—and we’ll build a design just for your home.
