Burying pipe below ground isn’t the only option if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in Elkhart. Ponds and lakes are great options in regard to heating and cooling your home.
This equipment is closed-loop, like the options we install, but we place them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like below-ground, pond and lake temperatures are very stable 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 costly than common two-earth loop types. As with a lot of heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your individual circumstances, professional design, as well as the size and depth of your pond.
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 make a design just for your home.
