Embedding pipe below ground isn’t the only solution if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in Houston. Ponds and lakes are ideal possibilities when it comes to 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 below-ground, pond and lake temperatures are extremely even at the bottom.
How Large Does My Pond or Lake Need to Be?
For a standard 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 options. As with most heating and cooling systems, geothermal pond loops depend on your individual situation, appropriate design, as well as the size and depth of your lake.
Our skilled team at Church Services can confirm if your pond is a match for a geothermal system. We’ll give you a complimentary quote once we’ve checked out your pond—and we’ll make a design just for your home.
