Embedding pipe below the surface isn’t the only option if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in Jacksonville. Ponds and lakes are fantastic options when it comes to heating and cooling your home.
These products are closed-loop, like the models we install, but we station them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like underground, pond and lake temperatures are incredibly even at the bottom.
How Large Does My Pond or Lake Need to Be?
For the average 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 common two-earth loop types. As with a lot of heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your individual settings, appropriate design, as well as the size and depth of your lake.
Our skilled team at Air Engineers Service Experts can confirm if your pond is suitable for a geothermal system. We’ll provide you with a free quote once we’ve taken a look—and we’ll build a design just for your home.
