Embedding pipe below ground isn’t the only solution 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 products are closed-loop, like the options 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 traditional two-earth loop types. As with most heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your specific 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 fit for a geothermal system. We’ll give you a complimentary quote once we’ve checked out your pond—and we’ll create a design just for your home.
