Embedding pipe below ground isn’t the only choice if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in Louisville. Ponds and lakes are great choices in regard to heating and cooling your home.
These systems are closed-loop, like the models we install, but we put them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like underground, pond and lake temperatures are incredibly consistent 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 pricey than conventional two-earth loop models. As with most heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your distinct settings, proper design, as well as the size and depth of your body of water.
Our skilled team at Becht/Givens Service Experts can decide if your pond is a match for a geothermal system. We’ll provide you with a no-cost quote once we’ve taken a look—and we’ll make a design just for your home.
