Putting pipe below ground isn’t the only option if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Charleston. Ponds and lakes are ideal possibilities when it comes to heating and cooling your home.
These products are closed-loop, like the options we install, but we place 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 the average 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 expensive than common two-earth loop types. As with a lot of heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your distinct circumstances, professional design, as well as the size and depth of your pond.
Our skilled team at Pardee Service Experts can confirm if your pond is a match for a geothermal system. We’ll provide you with a free quote once we’ve checked out your pond—and we’ll create a design just for your home.
