Pond and Lake Applications Burying pipe underground isn’t the only option if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Canada. While it may seem a little odd that your pond could be helping to heat and cool your home, ponds and lakes are good options when it comes to harnessing geothermal energy. These geothermal loops are closed loop systems like the others we install, and are simply placed 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 used for pond and lake applications are also practically equal, 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 usually the regular size needed for an average home. Pond and lake geothermal systems can be less pricey than the conventional two earth loop options as well. As with a lot of heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops will be determined on your individual 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 qualified and has the experience to provide you with an estimate once we have taken a look to determine if your pond is suitable to house a geothermal system. Once it’s decided that your pond is able to harness geothermal energy, we will strategically design and install a pond system that not only provides you with geothermal heating and cooling, but may actually provide improved performance and could help you save on installation costs. Geothermal pond loops are one of the most cost-saving applications of geothermal systems, so if you’d like to learn more about the possibility of adding one of these systems to your Canada home, the pros at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning would be happy to help.
