Embedding pipe underground isn’t the only choice if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Canada. Ponds and lakes are fantastic options in regard to heating and cooling your home.
These products are closed-loop, like the models we install, but we station them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like below-ground, pond and lake temperatures are incredibly even at the bottom.
How Large Does My Pond or Lake Need to Be?
For the average 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 pricey than common two-earth loop types. As with most heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your specific situation, appropriate design, as well as the size and depth of your lake.
Our experienced team at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can confirm if your pond is a fit for a geothermal system. We’ll give you a free quote once we’ve inspected your pond—and we’ll build a design just for your home.
