Putting pipe below ground isn’t the only option if you’re considering geothermal energy in Charleston. Ponds and lakes are ideal options in regard to heating and cooling your home.
These systems are closed-loop, like the models we install, but we place 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 a regular 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 expensive than common two-earth loop models. As with a lot of heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your specific circumstances, appropriate design, as well as the size and depth of your lake.
Our skilled team at Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can decide if your pond is a match for a geothermal system. We’ll provide you with a free quote once we’ve taken a look—and we’ll make a design just for your home.
