Pond and Lake Applications Burying pipe underground isn’t the only way if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Cleveland. While it might seem a bit odd that your pond could be helping to heat and cool your home, ponds and lakes are great choices when it comes to gathering geothermal energy. These geothermal loops are closed loop systems like the others we put in, and are just placed near the bottom of the pond or lake. Much like the evenness of ground temperatures, pond and lake temperatures are very even at the bottom. The materials we use for pond and lake applications are also nearly indistinguishable, and there are only a couple differences when it comes to length and configuration. Requirements A 1/2 to 3/4 acre, 8-foot-deep body of water is normally the standard size needed for an average home. Pond and lake geothermal systems can be less costly than the conventional two earth loop options as well. As with most heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops will depend on your specific situation, proper geothermal loop design, as well as the size of your pond or lake and its depth. The team at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is skilled and has the experience to offer you an estimate once we have taken a look to decide if your pond is appropriate to house a geothermal system. Once it’s determined that your pond is able to harness geothermal energy, we will create a custom design and install a pond system that not only give you geothermal heating and cooling, but could actually provide improved performance and possibly save on installation costs. Geothermal pond loops are one of the most cost-saving applications of geothermal systems, so if you’d like to find out more about the possibility of adding one of these systems to your Cleveland home, the experts at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning would be happy to help.
