Burying pipe underground isn’t the only option if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in Elkhart. Ponds and lakes are ideal possibilities when it comes to heating and cooling your home.
This equipment is closed-loop, like the options we install, but we put them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like below-ground, pond and lake temperatures are extremely even at the bottom.
How Large Does My Pond or Lake Need to Be?
For a standard 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 types. As with many heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your individual circumstances, professional design, as well as the size and depth of your lake.
Our experienced team at BW/Cook Service Experts can determine if your pond is a fit for a geothermal system. We’ll provide you with a free quote once we’ve inspected your pond—and we’ll create a design just for your home.
