Burying pipe below ground isn’t the only solution if you’re thinking about adding geothermal energy in Knoxville. Ponds and lakes are great possibilities when it comes to heating and cooling your home.
These systems are closed-loop, like the models we install, but we put them at the bottom of a pond or lake. Much like subterranean levels, 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 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 body of water.
Our experienced team at R & M Climate Control Service Experts can decide if your pond is a fit for a geothermal system. We’ll supply you with a no-cost quote once we’ve inspected your pond—and we’ll build a design just for your home.
