Embedding pipe underground isn’t the only option if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in Fort Wayne. Ponds and lakes are fantastic options in regard to heating and cooling your home.
These systems are closed-loop, like the others we install, but we station them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like below-ground, 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 costly than common two-earth loop options. As with a lot of heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your individual settings, proper design, as well as the size and depth of your pond.
Our Expert team at Rolf Griffin Service Experts can decide if your pond is suitable 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.
