Putting pipe below ground isn’t the only option if you’re looking into geothermal energy in Gaithersburg. Ponds and lakes are great possibilities for heating and cooling your home.
This equipment is 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 extremely 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 geothermal pond or lake system can be less pricey than conventional two-earth loop types. As with many heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your distinct circumstances, proper design, as well as the size and depth of your body of water.
Our experienced team at Parker Pearce Service Experts can determine if your pond is a fit for a geothermal system. We’ll provide you with a free quote once we’ve inspected your pond—and we’ll make a design just for your home.
