Embedding pipe below ground isn’t the only choice if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in Long Island. Ponds and lakes are fantastic possibilities when it comes to heating and cooling your home.
This equipment is closed-loop, like the others we install, but we place them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like subterranean levels, pond and lake temperatures are extremely consistent 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 geothermal pond or lake system can be less costly than conventional two-earth loop models. As with many heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your individual circumstances, appropriate design, as well as the size and depth of your body of water.
