Pond and Lake Applications Burying pipe underground isn’t the only way if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Concord. While it might seem a bit odd that your pond could be helping to heat and cool your home, ponds and lakes are great options when it comes to capturing geothermal energy. These geothermal loops are closed loop systems like the others we offer, and are merely positioned near the bottom of the pond or lake. Much like the evenness of ground temperatures, pond and lake temperatures are very constant at the bottom. The materials utilized for pond and lake applications are also basically indistinguishable, and there are only a couple differences when it comes to length and configuration. Requirements A 1/2 to 3/4 acre, 8-foot-deep body of water is typically the regular size needed for an average home. Pond and lake geothermal systems may be less expensive than the conventional two earth loop options as well. As with many heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops will depend on your individual situation, proper geothermal loop design, as well as the size of your pond or lake and its depth. The team at Freschi Service Experts is trained and has the experience to offer you an estimate once we have taken a look to determine if your pond is suitable to house a geothermal system. Once it’s determined that your pond is able to harness geothermal energy, we will carefully design and install a pond system that not only offers you geothermal heating and cooling, but might actually provide increased performance and possibly save on installation costs. Geothermal pond loops are one of the most sensible applications of geothermal systems, so if you’d like to find out more about the possibility of adding one of these systems to your Concord home, the pros at Freschi Service Experts would be happy to help.
