Embedding pipe below the surface isn’t the only choice if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Atlanta. Ponds and lakes are fantastic choices for heating and cooling your home.
These systems are closed-loop, like the options we install, but we place 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 the average 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 common two-earth loop types. 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 pond.
Our skilled team at Peachtree Service Experts can confirm if your pond is suitable for a geothermal system. We’ll give you a free quote once we’ve inspected your pond—and we’ll create a design just for your home.
